5 Reasons You’ll Want a Home Dehumidifier This Year
While we all love summer for the warmer temps, high humidity can make it harder to enjoy the season.

This is an obvious benefit, but also one of the biggest. In general, humidity levels in your home should fall between 35 and 50 percent. When it exceeds 50 percent, you’ll feel hotter, stickier, and uncomfortable.
Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air, helping you feel better—and even cooler—without turning up the air conditioning.
Lowers Energy Costs
Because an air dehumidifier removes excess moisture, your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard to cool your house. That efficiency can help bring down your utility costs, all while keeping you comfortable. We call that a win-win.
Helps Protect Your Health
Allergens and other illness-causing contaminants thrive in humid conditions. So, if your home has too much moisture, you and your family are more likely to get sick.
By lowering humidity levels, a whole home dehumidifier can help ward off those allergens and pollutants, enhance your indoor air quality, and protect your health all at the same time.
Helps Protect Your Home’s Health
Bacteria and other allergy triggers aren’t the only pollutants that love humid air—mold and mildew do, too. And in addition to you breathing them in, mold and mildew grow within your home, causing moisture problems with things like your floors and wooden furniture.
Home dehumidifiers help take away the moisture that mold loves, making your home a safer and more comfortable place to be.
Gets Rid of Musty Odors
Mold, mildew, and other airborne pollutants that thrive in humid air give off unpleasant smells, which only get worse over time. A whole home dehumidifier installation will reduce moisture, helping your home smell clean and fresh.
