In the part where I live, the Springtime and warm season weather is often warm and humid. While the cooling system is designed to combat the heat, it can’t handle excessive moisture. That sticky, clamming feeling can lead to much lower temperature control settings and far greater strain on cooling equipment. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, relative humidity should be inspected somewhere between thirty and fifty percent. Anything above sixty percent can lead to concerns with air quality and destruction to the home. Mold and mildew growth, greater dust mite population, destruction to wood furnishings, and aggravated symptoms of asthma and pollen irritations are some of the consequences. I tried setting up a couple of room dehumidifiers, however they were expensive to run. I got aggravated by needing to continually needing to empty the collected water. I finally hired a local Heating as well as Air Conditioning contractor to install a whole home dehumidifier. I only need the one dehumidifier to manage the needs of the entire house. It incorporated into the existing HVAC duct, allowing it to impact every room. It runs alongside the cooling system, however can also be controlled independently. This has lessened the workload of the cooling system, and it runs more efficiently because it’s simply cooling the air rather than struggling to dehumidify it. Whole home dehumidifiers are available in a variety of sizes and include a drainage line, so I never need to empty the water pan. The permanently installed dehumidifier is multiple times more efficient than the portable room dehumidifier. It also double as an air filtration unit, because it effectively traps contaminants as the air passes through.
