How Dehumidifiers Can Help
Dehumidifiers monitor humidity levels and supplement your cooling system when the desired set point on your thermostat has been reached. Finished basements are often humid because your A/C system doesn't run long enough to remove all the moisture from the air.
Extract the Moisture
A dehumidifier can extract the remaining moisture without lowering the room temperature. High humidity in unfinished basements and crawl spaces can affect the finished areas of your home, for example, generating airborne contaminants like mold and mildew.
How high humidity affects your health:
- Promotes growth of airborne contaminants like mold, mildew and dust mites.
- Aggravates allergies, asthma and other respiratory ailments.
Signs you have high humidity in your home:
- Air feels clammy.
- Basements and crawlspaces are musty and damp.
