The Benefits of a Dehumidifier

If you live in Walker, LA, you don’t have to be told how much of a problem high humidity levels and be in the summertime. The moist air can feel like a wall, and if you can’t address the condition appropriately, then your home is apt to be adversely affected in a number of ways. High humidity prevents sweat from evaporating off of your body, making it feel hotter than it is and forcing your air conditioner to work harder than it should. 

The solution is a whole-house dehumidifier, which removes excess moisture from the air in your home and restores comfort levels to something much more manageable. (The air conditioner does much the same job, but doing so can cause problems, as discussed below.) With summer just started and months of Louisiana mugginess to come, now is the perfect time to install one in your hom,e

  • Improves Comfort. By dropping relative humidity levels below 50%, a dehumidifier lets your home feel comfortable again and prevents that gross feeling of sweat stuck on your body.
  • Lowers Air Conditioning Bills. Air conditioners perform the same basic task as dehumidifiers simply by cooling the air, but they’re not set up for such a job. The strain of high humidity can increase your monthly bills, as well as adding to the risk of a breakdown somewhere else in the system.
  • Cuts Down on Mold. Mold and bacteria thrive in spots with high humidity, creating a risk of illness in your households. Dehumidifiers cut down on that risk, helping to keep your family healthy.
  • Keeps Furnishings Undamaged. High humidity can affect wallpaper, wooden furnishings and other components of your household. Dehumidifiers keep those components from being damaged by high moisture levels.
