Dehumidifying Your Home

In North Texas we traditionally get a very dry heat during the summer months, but that doesn’t mean that we are exempt from humid weather. If left unresolved excess moisture in your home can lead to mold and mildew growth, dust mite proliferation and health issues such as allergies and asthma. Humidity can affect various parts of your home that reaches beyond your air conditioning system.

How do you know if your house is too humid?

If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, your home may need dehumidification:

• Do you frequently find yourself sweating even when temperatures are comfortable inside?
• Does your skin feel sticky in the warmer months or clammy in the colder months?
• Do specific rooms in your home have a musty smell?
• Do your wood floors or trim suffer from warping or rotting?
• Are you having problems with insect infestation in your home?
• Do you notice condensation on windows or mirrors?

Controlling Home Humidity

Daily activities, and even your body itself, add moisture to your home on a daily basis. While your air conditioner is there to keep your home comfortable, its primary function is to control temperature and provide some dehumidification. Some extra dehumidification may be necessary to maintain a comfortable, healthy home environment.

Whole-House Dehumidifiers Offer Superior Humidity Control

Working as part of your A/C or independently when needed, whole-house dehumidifiers remove the ideal amount of humidity from your home, solving moisture problems. By monitoring your home with automatic sensors, this quiet equipment offers top-notch humidity control. Unlike portable models, they’re conveniently located away from your living space. Maintenance is simple, requiring only an annual filter cleaning, and the fresh air ventilation they offer also removes or dilutes polluted air inside your home.
