Is a Dehumidifier Necessary?

If your home or place of business is susceptible to moisture, a dehumidifier can be considered a necessity rather than a luxury. High humidity can cause an increase in dust mites as well as the growth of mold and mildew which can pose a serious risk to those with allergies and asthma, and even create respiratory problems in those not affected. The added moisture also allows millipedes and other pests to thrive. It is worth noting that your property is also at risk since humidity causes metal to rust and wood to warp which can lead to structural issues and expensive repairs farther down the line.

Signs I Need a Dehumidifier

If you notice any of these signs, it may be time to have a dehumidifier installed:

  1. Mold or mildew spots on the walls or ceiling
  2. Window and door condensation
  3. Musty smell or odor
  4. Blistering paint or peeling wallpaper
  5. Creaky doors, windows, cabinets and floors
  6. Have trouble sleeping due to “stuffy” air
  7. Dehumidifier Installation

 

While there are standalone dehumidifiers, there are whole house units that can be added to your heating/cooling ventilation system. These latter systems are highly effective and very practical since it’s possible to control the humidity in your home using your thermostat. If you’re looking to have one installed, we have the industry experience to be able to analyze your property and make a suitable recommendation based on your needs and budget. We can also look at how well insulated your property is, and provide some suggestions on how to make your ventilation system more efficient.
