Understanding dehumidifiers in your heating and cooling equipment
We all love it when we have enough humidity in our homes. Not only does it improve our health and wellbeing, it also helps extend the life of our furnishings and belongings by preventing cracking and chipping. However, too much humidity can do as much, if not more damage than too little. Here are the ABC’s of dehumidifiers in heating and cooling equipment.
When there is an abundance of humidity in your home, it provides an ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow and thrive. Additionally, too much humidity can cause damage to your home and your belongings, causing wood to warp and swell. Your heating and cooling equipment alone cannot combat the problem. Incorporating a dehumidifier into your heating and cooling equipment, however, can help you bring your humidity level back in balance.
Mold caused by too much humidity is a huge issue, and can be quite dangerous to your health. Mold can cause many health-related issues, including fatigue; headaches; respiratory irritation and distress; skin conditions; and eye, nose, and throat irritation. Eliminating excess moisture in the air is easy with a dehumidifier in your heating and cooling equipment.
Air with too much moisture can smell musty, and the humidity can make strong odors linger. Less humidity can help get rid of the unpleasant odors. Less humidity also lowers energy consumption during the summer because humid air holds heat, so it takes more energy for your heating and cooling equipment to cool your home.
Having the right relative humidity can be a challenge, but with the right dehumidifier in your heating and cooling equipment, it becomes effortless. A dehumidifier runs in the background and is low maintenance, and it can make a world of difference in your home.
