Here’s What You Need to Know About a Home Dehumidifier

It’s air conditioner time in Central Wisconsin. But did you know that installing a home dehumidifier can help you stay even more comfortable in the summer heat? It’s true—and ComfortAire Heating Cooling Plumbing can prove it. Below, we’re sharing six things you need to know about adding a whole-home dehumidifier. Read them over, then call us in Wisconsin Rapids or Stevens Point to talk about installation.

They Reduce Moisture Levels in Your Home

As its name suggests, a dehumidifier is designed to reduce humidity levels in your home. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends you balance levels between 30 and 50 percent—a home dehumidifier helps you do exactly that.

They Help Prevent Mold and Mildew

These and other harmful microorganisms live and thrive in moist environments. So the less humidity that’s in your air, the cleaner you can keep your home—and the healthier you can keep your family (more on that below).

They Help Reduce Allergens

Mold and mildew are common allergy triggers. By removing the moisture in which they thrive, dehumidifiers can help improve your allergy and asthma symptoms.

They Help Create a Fresher Home

On top of mold, it’s common for bad odors to linger in environments with high humidity. So, by installing a dehumidifier in your Central Wisconsin home, you can freshen up your indoor air and make everything smell better.

They Help You Feel Cooler

High humidity often comes with higher temperatures. In addition to getting rid of that sticky feeling, dehumidifiers also help you feel cooler by removing excess moisture. That means that by simply installing one, you can improve your comfort without having to turn up your A/C.

They Help Your A/C Last, Too

A whole-home dehumidifier can help your air conditioner carry the comfort load all summer long. That partnership can help reduce the amount of stress put on your A/C—which, in turn, helps cut down on needed repairs. And a system that doesn’t need fixing often (and one you maintain regularly) lasts much longer than one that does.
