Dehumidifier: Your Best Defense When The Air Turns Humid
The humidity in Fayetteville can make home an uncomfortable place to be. Humidity can not only make you feel sticky, sluggish and weak, but can also cause structural damage to your home and harm your family’s health.
The simplest tool you can use to combat humidity is a dehumidifier. Just using fans or opening the windows won’t bring the humidity level down to where it should be. Fans will just move the humidity around and opening the windows doesn’t work if it’s humid outside.
A whole-house dehumidifier integrated into your HVAC system is the best type of dehumidifier, as it allows you to choose your humidity level and maintain that level consistently throughout your whole home.
As long as you set the humidity level to between 30 and 50 percent, a dehumidifier will help your home avoid problems often associated with high levels of humidity, such as rotted wood, wet spots on walls, condensation on windows and peeling wallpaper. And in the summer, you won’t be tempted to keep your home overly cool just to deal with the humidity. More importantly, your family will avoid any allergic reactions stemming from mold growth and dust mites caused by high humidity.
Since they remove the moisture from the air, rather than just move it around, dehumidifiers are your most basic solution to high humidity problems and will help your family and your home avoid a host of potential problems.
