Lessen Your Home’s Moisture in Houston and Breathe a Little Easier
As the name implies, dehumidifiers reduce the level of humidity in a target area. This is true whether it’s installed in a business, an attic, a bedroom, or a basement. By lowering the amount of moisture in the air, these systems make a space feel less ‘sticky’ while reducing musty odors. They also reduce the burden your air conditioner has to lift during rainy days. While portable dehumidifiers exist, we find most homeowners prefer the permanent, wide-ranging effect of a whole-house dehumidifier.
Signs You Might Benefit from a Dehumidifier
While it’s pretty obvious when your AC or furnace goes out, air quality issues tend to be much more insidious. They don’t call attention to themselves like a furnace that puffs out on a 10-degree day. But there are signs that your home might be in need of moisture reduction:
- The persistent smell of must or mildew
- Mold spots in corners or on ceilings
- Creaky cabinets, floors, or doors
- Condensation on walls or interior windows
- Peeling wallpaper or paint
- Excessive runoff in springtime
How Whole House Dehumidifiers Enhance Your Comfort in Houston
A whole house dehumidifier sucks in air from throughout your home, removes the moisture from it, and then pushes it back throughout your ducts. The collected water is then piped into a plastic container or drained outside. The latter allows for fewer maintenance visits and a lesser likelihood of overflowing. This process—though simple—provides numerous household benefits. Foremost among these are:
- A reduction of mildew and mold growth
- The elimination of musty odors or smells
- Longer lasting wood furniture less prone to warping
- An ability to set your thermostat higher with no comfort reduction
- Fewer allergy-causing particles in your living space
- Marked improvements in asthma or respiratory symptoms
- Less stress on your air conditioner in the summer
As you can see, almost every home in Houston can reap some kind of benefit from dehumidifier installation.
