If you’ve lived in San Marcos, Texas, for long, you may have gotten used to the high humidity. Just because you expect the summers to be sticky doesn’t mean you want excess moisture in your home, though. Can’t seem to keep humidity outside where it belongs? From better moisture control to improved energy efficiency, find out how a whole-home dehumidifier can help.
Reduce Airborne Moisture
You might be surprised to learn how easily a whole-home dehumidifier tackles the complex job of reducing airborne moisture from your home. A dehumidistat identifies excess moisture and turns the device on or off accordingly.
The dehumidifier then relies on a fan to pull in warm air, and a cold coil turns the excess moisture from the humid air into liquid. The liquid leaves your home via a pipe, and the air returns to circulation after passing over a warm coil.
Increase HVAC Efficiency
A portable dehumidifier is designed to lower moisture levels. It can make your home feel less sticky and reduce the chances of biological growth thriving in your home.
However, consider investing in a whole-home dehumidifier instead. In addition to getting a handle on humidity, this device works seamlessly with your heating and cooling system. It offers the added advantage of improving HVAC efficiency.
Improve Indoor Comfort
If your home never really feels cool enough during the summer months, there’s a good chance that humidity is the culprit. Airborne moisture can make a warm day feel hotter. This can lead you to turn down the temperature on the thermostat without ever feeling the cool relief you’re seeking. A whole-home dehumidifier can resolve those persistent comfort issues, helping your family stay cool and content all summer long.
