Benefits of Installing a Whole House Dehumidifier

A damp environment causes serious health issues and property damage, but dehumidifiers can help. Here’s how: 

Lower Humidity Levels

The primary benefit of having a whole-house dehumidifier installed is to balance indoor humidity levels. Humidity levels should ideally be between 30 and 50% throughout the year. Once installed, your home will become more comfortable for everyday living.

Eliminate Mold Growth

Mold is one of the most dangerous things that can invade a home. It is awful for your health and can damage the house’s surfaces.

A whole-house dehumidifier can eliminate mold growth throughout your home and limit the amount of damage done.

Healthier Air

People spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. It is unpleasant to think about, but the air in our homes is sometimes full of unhealthy pollutants. Per the EPA, it is typically more polluted than the air outside.

Luckily, dehumidifiers help improve your home’s air, making breathing easier and healthier.

Lower Energy Costs

When your dehumidifier works in tip-top condition, it decreases your energy bills. This is because it efficiently purifies and balances the air in the home without using excess energy. It also takes the pressure off your HVAC system helping the air conditioning work more effectively through the house.

Protection for Furniture and Home

Your home and your furniture can become damaged by high humidity levels. The moisture gets under the paint and peels, rots wooden window frames, and damages plaster. 

Using a dehumidifier to dry the air will prolong the life of your favorite furniture pieces and home’s structure. 

How Does a Whole House Dehumidifier Work?

A whole-house dehumidifier is a system that lowers the moisture levels in your entire home by drawing the water out of the air. As a result, you’ll notice fewer airborne pollutants and reduce the chances of mold and mildew growth.

Ravinia Plumbing has an excellent reputation for providing whole-house dehumidifier services for our customers. Our heating, air conditioning, and indoor air quality experts will happily visit your property and give an estimate.

Dehumidifier Maintenance and Repair Services

As with heating and air conditioner systems, maintenance is critical to the longevity of your dehumidifier. It can also save you money in the long term. When your dehumidifier works efficiently, it doesn’t use excessive power to dry the home. Maintenance also stops minor fixable issues from becoming more extensive and requiring a replacement.
