You know how uncomfortable a hot, sticky Northwest Arkansas summer can be, but did you also know that excess humidity can create problems more significant than your own discomfort?
In addition to causing you to feel uncomfortable, too much indoor humidity can cause other problems, including:
- Rotting wood floors and furniture
- Condensation on windows, which may damage frames
- Water stains on walls and ceilings
- Mold and mildew in the bathroom
- Musty odors throughout the house
- Allergic reactions to mold spores
- Increase in dust mites, bacteria, and other unwanted biological contaminants
Whole-house dehumidifiers can efficiently remove excess moisture from the air in your home, keeping your home cool, dry and healthy all summer long. Damage to irreplaceable belongings can often not be reversed or repaired. These problems can not only become costly, they can create risks to your family’s health. Portable dehumidifiers can remove moisture from one or a few rooms, but only whole-house dehumidifiers work with your existing heating and cooling system to control the humidity in every room in your home.
Whole-house dehumidifiers remove water from the air and drain it outside of your home. You don’t have to empty any tanks, and there is no stagnant water to worry about. With quiet operation and no big equipment in your living spaces, you won’t even know it’s there, but you will feel the difference. Most systems can be controlled from a simple wall-mounted panel, so you can have complete control over your indoor environment.
Summer is not the only season to manage humidity levels in your home. In addition to the weather outside, excess moisture can be caused by showering, doing laundry, perspiration, breathing, and cooking. No matter what the source is, excess humidity can be damaging any time of year.
The professionals at Paschal, Heat, Air & Geothermal can evaluate the current humidity levels in your home and recommend the solutions that make the most sense for your family.
