Whole Home Dehumidifiers

Moisture overload? Dehumidify!

In an attempt to conserve energy, homes are increasingly being constructed more and more airtight. Storm windows, insulation, caulking, and filling cracks with weather stripping are just a few ways that homeowners strive to save energy. Unfortunately, these techniques also make it more difficult for heating and cooling systems to remove excess humidity…no matter how new the technology. 

Why Is It Necessary To Eliminate Excess Humidity?

The bottom line is that it causes your indoor air to feel more uncomfortable than it should, not to mention the health risks that come along with a damp home environment.

However, managing the humidity level of your home can give you greater comfort and improved indoor air quality!

The ideal level of humidity in your home is 45%. Although it’s challenging to maintain such a consistent level, working to keep humidity as close to 45% as possible will make your home FEEL more comfortable and transform it from the environment where mold, mildew, and bacteria can thrive.

Financial Benefits of A Whole Home Dehumidifier 

family-footer

While shopping through your local Target or Walmart, you’ve probably seen portable dehumidifiers—these are great for small spaces, such as a child’s room, but when you need to dehumidify your entire home, you need a whole-home dehumidifier!

During the summer months, your home’s humidity levels will naturally soar! Most homeowners resort to lowering their thermostats to escape the muggy heat, increasing their utility bills. A better solution is a whole-home dehumidifier! The dehumidifier will work to eliminate that clammy feeling without having to lower your home’s overall temperature. Imagine a cooler home without touching the thermostat! Using your cooling system LESS means saving MORE! 

Does Your Home Need A Dehumidifier?

You might not even realize your home is falling prey to excessive humidity! Take a look at these telltale indicators of an overly humid home environment! 

Mold Spots—one of the easiest signs to see is mold spots. They are the #1 indicator of excessive humidity. This is a dangerous problem and can spread quickly, causing health issues and decreasing the value of your home.

  • Condensation Buildup—if you notice that the windows of your home are covered with beads of water, or a vapor-like fog on the glass, you have a room with too much moisture. Your home’s humidity is working overtime!

  • Musty Odors—an old or musty smell in your home almost always means that mildew and mold are present. These contaminants thrive on moisture, which starts to collect in areas like basements, garages and crawlspaces. 

  • Water Damage Stains—water stains along your walls and ceilings are a sign of excess moisture. Be sure to have a professional inspect water stains to ensure you don’t have pipe leakage. If you see the damage, the water is already present and a dehumidifier will help begin the drying-up process!

  • Rotting or Buckling Wood—wood retains moisture and with an overload it will begin to buckle and rot. Rotting wood attracts unwanted pests like termites, and the damage can be cosmetic, causing you to consider expensive remodeling.

  • Allergies—allergy-prone homeowners will notice a significant increase in allergy troubles due to their indoor air quality. Excess moisture in the air breeds airborne allergens like dust mites and mold spores. If your allergies act up while you’re inside, you likely are experiencing poor indoor air quality. Humidity levels can also cause simple discomforts like chapped lips and more severe issues like respiratory breathing problems.

We had Robert from FH Furr install a new Fuse/breaker panel in our house. He and the electrician working with him did an incredible job from start to finish, making sure we knew what was to be done, how long…
