Dehumidifiers are used to control moisture levels in the home, keeping humidity levels between 30 and 50 percent. Whole house and portable models are available for dehumidification throughout the entire home or to provide focused dehumidification to targeted areas. Using a dehumidifier can improve your health and comfort, offering the following benefits:

Controls bacteria and allergens

Bacteria can thrive in moist environments, where it can easily multiply. Dehumidifiers keep indoor humidity within a safe range to control bacteria. Dryer indoor environments are more conducive to good health, compared to higher humidity levels indoors.

A dryer indoor environment also works to control allergens within the home. A dehumidifier will work to prevent dust mite growth and control concentrations of other allergens such as dander, pollen, mold and more, limiting the allergy symptoms you feel.

Mold prevention

Mold can be very damaging to your home as well as your family’s health. Mold can easily grow in damp areas of the home if humidity levels are not kept in the safe range. Dehumidifiers can offer targeted moisture control for problem areas like basements and bathrooms, or whole home solutions.

Keeps you cooler

Humid environments feel hotter. When there is too much humidity in your home, you’re likely to crank up the air conditioning in efforts to improve your comfort. A dehumidifier removes excess humidity so you can stay comfortable without lowering your thermostat in the summer. This will also help you conserve energy and spend less on your utility bills.

A dehumidifier will also help your air conditioner function more efficiently. It will work to remove excess humidity so your air conditioner doesn’t have to. Therefore, less stress is placed on your cooling system and it will use less energy. Using a dehumidifier can also help extend the service life of your air conditioner.
