Everyone loves opening their windows in the spring and summer to get fresh air in the house, but when humidity rises, your home can feel clammy and uncomfortable. It may be helpful to have a dehumidifier installed in your home.
If you’re interested in a whole house dehumidifier and live in the Greater Lehigh Valley, contact the experts at Jack Lehr Heating, Cooling & Electric today.
Have you ever heard someone say that it was over 90 degrees outside but it was a dry heat so it did not feel as hot? When there is less humidity in the air, it feels cooler! Installing a dehumidifier removes the humidity out of your home making it feel cooler than it really is.
The EPA estimates that for every one degree that you increase your thermostat during the summer, you can reduce your air conditioning costs by 3 percent. As mentioned above, dehumidifiers help the air feel cooler by removing the excess moisture, thus allowing you to set your thermostat a few degrees higher, saving energy and money!
Pollen and dust mites cling to the moisture in the air. As you can imagine, this creates a troublesome environment for people suffering from allergies. If you install a dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity, you are no longer giving pollutants the opportunity to linger in your home.
Mold also thrives in humid environments. Mold growth can be very dangerous, especially to someone who is allergic to the fungus. As humidity rises condensation builds up in your home, on your pipes as well as on your floors and walls. Removing the excess moisture in your home keeps mold from growing which can develop in your air condition system.
Portable dehumidifiers can be loud and annoying! Whole house dehumidifier units fit seamlessly with your existing HVAC unit. This keeps the unit out of view and as well very quiet.
