Humidity can really get to you, especially when it’s muggy outside this is Florida and it is an extremely humid and muggy climate. Dehumidification is necessary to control moisture and keep your home a healthy, comfortable environment.
To find out if you need a dehumidifier in your home ask yourself these questions. If your answer is “yes” to any one of them, you may need to invest in a dehumidifier:
- Do you frequently find yourself sweating in your house, even when temperatures are normal?
- Does your skin feel sticky in the summer or clammy in the winter?
- Does your home or specific rooms smell musty?
- Have you noticed wood floors, trim and furniture suffering from warping or rotting?
- Are you having problems with insect infestation in your home?
- Do you notice condensation on windows, mirrors and cold drinks?
Left unresolved, excess moisture in your home can lead to mold and mildew growth, dust mite proliferation, and health issues such as allergies and asthma.
Controlling Home Humidity
Other than the humid Florida climate daily activities such as the shower or bath tub, doing laundry, washing dishes, and even your body itself, add moisture to your home on a daily basis. While your air conditioner is there to keep your home comfortable, its primary function is to control temperature, and provide some dehumidification. Some extra dehumidification may be necessary to maintain a comfortable, healthy home environment.
