Simple tasks you complete in your home – from cooking and showering to washing and even breathing – create moisture in the air. This coupled with the naturally humid air of North Carolina leads to a muggy, clammy feeling in your home. Hot, humid summer days are so taxing for air conditioners that the dehumidification abilities of air conditioners sometimes aren’t enough.
For this kind of situation, to avoid feeling hotter than necessary, you need a whole-home dehumidifier. However, not all dehumidification systems are created equal. Here are two important factors to keep in mind as you shop for the perfect system for your home.
- Built-in fan cycling is an important feature. A dehumidifier without this feature will fail at keeping the whole house at a consistent humidity level. Instead, it will lead to an improper balance of temperature and humidity that result in hot and cold spots throughout your home. The simple fix for this issue is to seek the all-important built-in fan cycling feature.
- The capacity of your dehumidification system is important for optimal function as well. Seek a system that can remove up to 90 pints of water from the air per day. A high-moisture removal rate is important, especially for humid regions in the southern United States. This figure will give you a good starting point as you shop around for the best dehumidifier for removing excess moisture from the air of your home.
By keeping these two factors in mind, you will benefit from a more comfortable and consistent temperature, the elimination of muggy or clammy air, and the ability to avoid damaging wood and other materials in your home due to excessive moisture.
