3 Benefits of a Whole-Home Dehumidifier

post img

Here in Michiana, moisture levels can be incredibly high, with average humidity of 76% in winter and 71% in summer. For this reason, it’s common for local homeowners to deal with excessive moisture indoors. One of the best ways you can combat the effects of high humidity is by investing in a whole-home dehumidifier.

The indoor air quality experts at Church Plumbing & Heating discuss the three main benefits of installing a whole-home dehumidifier in your home so you can make the most informed decision for your comfort and safety.

Preventing Mold & Moisture Damage

One of the biggest problems that homeowners experience as a result of high indoor humidity is mold and mildew growth. Mold spores are attracted to damp, dark spaces. If the moisture levels in your home are abnormally high, it can create the perfect environment for mold to grow in your ductwork, basement, crawl spaces, and other areas of your home.

This have a severe impact on your respiratory health and lead to significant structural damage to your property. By investing in a whole-home dehumidifier, you can decrease the likelihood of mold and mildew growth taking over your property.

Improves Allergies & Dust Mites

Along with mold and mildew, increased moisture levels in the home can attract dust mites as they gravitate toward damp environments. Dust mites can aggravate allergies and irritate respiratory passages, leading to increased sneezing, wheezing, coughing, and other health issues.

Through whole-home dehumidification, you can minimize moisture, reducing the likelihood that dust mites will take up residence in your indoor environment. You’ll enjoy fewer allergy and asthma attacks among your household members for a safer, healthier home life.

Reduces Pest Issues

Damp, dark spaces can also attract a broad range of pests, including cockroaches, silverfish, ants, earwigs, rodents, termites, and more. Not only are the presence of these pests a nuisance, but they can also be extremely unsanitary and even lead to significant structural damage to your property as in the case of rodent or termite infestation.

By integrating a whole-home dehumidifier with your existing HVAC infrastructure, you can remove excess moisture from your indoor air supply, making it less attractive to pests. As a result, you’ll enjoy a cleaner, safer indoor environment free of pesky critters that would have otherwise taken up residence in your home.
