How the Best Dehumidifier Can Make a Difference
You know how warm weather feels when the relative humidity rises above 60% (and often above 90%): it’s far worse, often close to intolerable. High levels of humidity don’t make the air any hotter—what it does is make it harder for your body to expel heat through perspiration. The more heat trapped in your body, the hotter the day will feel. High humidity in home can also lead to mold and mildew growth and damage to surfaces.
The right whole house dehumidifier will take care of these problems. Using a humidistat control, you can have the dehumidifier lower the relative humidity level in a house to a balanced 45%. The central dehumidifiers are designed to work with the air conditioning system so there’s no imbalance in your cooling. You’ll probably run your AC far less frequently when you’ve got a dehumidifier to help, and that means significant energy savings.
Looking for the Best Humidifier for Your Needs?
It may be difficult to imagine a humidifier during the hottest, muggiest summer days, but Florida goes through dry winter periods. Dry conditions have the opposite comfort affect from humid conditions: they allow your body to release more heat. This can make a moderately cool day feel far worse. With the right whole-house humidifier, you’ll have better comfort—and you may not need to turn your heating system on at all.
A whole-house humidifier can benefit your health as well. Dry conditions cause skin, eye, and nose irritation, and dry up the sinus membranes that protect you from catching a cold or flu.
