How Does a Dehumidifier Work?
There are several benefits to installing a dehumidifier, but in order to determine if this is the right solution for you, let’s explore exactly what a dehumidifier does.
Moisture content in the air is something people rarely think about on a conscious level, yet it affects us more than we realize. A high level of moisture in the air can lead to mold and mildew growth. This typically begins in dark and damp places, such as a basement or the cabinets under your bathroom or kitchen sinks. Dust mites also typically grow well in this type of climate. These mites often hide in bedsheets, curtains, carpets, or on furniture and pillows. The presence of mold and mites may not be apparent to the naked eye; however, they often manifest themselves through allergies and respiratory problems. If you are plagued by allergies, this may very well be the cause of them. Having a dehumidifier reduces the high moisture content in the air around you, thus eliminating many of these problems.
In an effort to be more energy efficient, you may have had modifications made to the construction of your home or business. Sealing off windows and door frames helps reduce the high costs of an energy bill; however, it also negatively affects the airflow inside your property.
Have you ever been outside on a fresh day and then enter a stuffy home where you feel the need to run the air conditioner just to freshen the air a bit? It’s because of the heavy moisture content in the air; mold produces spores which live in the moist air around us. A dehumidifier can solve this issue for you, without the need to run your air conditioner.
