What are the Benefits of a Dehumidifier for the Home?
Home dehumidifiers are essential for reducing indoor moisture that leads to mildew, mold and bacteria growth. It’s a good idea to run a dehumidifier in various areas of your home when the air gets too humid, such as during summer.
So, where is the best place to put a home dehumidifier?
- Whole house dehumidification: These are connected via your HVAC system to deliver consistently low levels of moisture throughout the home.
- Basement dehumidification: Because it’s generally below ground and doesn’t see as much sunlight, basements attract mold, moisture and foul odors.
- Crawl space and attic dehumidification: The rarely used areas of your home can be susceptible to flooding -- that includes crawl spaces and attics.
Are whole home dehumidifiers worth it?
If you live in an overly humid environment, a home dehumidifier may be worth it. These devices can help minimize the risk of moisture damage, while keeping bugs and odors away.
How do home dehumidifiers work?
Unlike home humidifiers, dehumidifiers suck moisture out of the air in one of two ways. Either by refrigeration, which cools the air to lower moisture or by absorbing moisture onto a drying material or into a tank.
Will a dehumidifier get rid of musty smell?
Yes, dehumidifiers will remove odors related to mildew, mold and other bacteria caused by moisture buildup.
