Would You Benefit From a Dehumidifier?

Saunas are fantastic for the skin. They allow your pores to open up and get rid of any dirt and debris that is present, leaving you feeling fresh and clean and your skin glowing. The only problem is you don’t want the interior of your home to have that kind of environment. If you have high humidity levels in your house, you may end up comparing it to a sauna.

What are you supposed to do if you have humidity levels that are too high inside your home? It’s not like you can go through the house with a cloth and wipe the extra moisture out of the air.

These somewhat silly comparisons are of course to let you know that we have a solution to your home’s humidity issues. Read on to learn more.

Why high humidity is a problem in the summer

You may not have realized it before, but high levels of humidity or airborne moisture will mess with your home comfort during the summer.

It’s one thing for it to be a humid day outside, it’s another for all of that humidity to follow you indoors. It’s like there’s no escape!

High humidity makes things more uncomfortable during the summer because all the moisture holds heat for longer periods of time. This makes it harder to cool your home down and cool yourself off too. What’s more, it leads to increased discomfort and higher energy bills throughout summer.

“No humidity” isn’t the answer

We want to make a quick note that you don’t want a completely humidity-free environment. The name of the game isn’t getting rid of all the moisture in the air. Instead, it’s about finding balance. If you have air in your home that is too dry it can be just as uncomfortable–leaving you dry, itchy, and prone to illness.

The solution: a whole-house dehumidifier

So, how do you get rid of the excess humidity in your home? The best solution can be found with whole-houseĀ dehumidifiers in Portland, OR. These systems are installed as a part of your HVAC system, usually in your ductwork where they work to remove excess humidity from the air throughout the house. This makes them more effective than portable dehumidifiers that can only affect the air in one room. Even better, because they balance the air in the entire home, it makes your air conditioner’s job easier.

If you’ve noticed that you are battling high humidity in your house, it may be time to reach out to discuss the addition of a dehumidifier to your HVAC system. When installed by one of the experts at The Clean Air Act, this system will work to improve your indoor air quality and your overall comfort.
