Harmful Effects of Excess Moisture in Your Home
Excess moisture in your home can lead to some serious issues. Did you know that water is continuously looking for a dry surface to penetrate? Even if you’re not experiencing visible signs of moisture in your home, that doesn’t mean it isn’t present. It could be in your walls, subfloors, carpet, or furniture. Or, it could just be present in the air. Because of this, it’s a good idea to protect your home with a whole home dehumidifier from Aprilaire.
The technicians at Oliver Heating & Cooling can assess your space to determine exactly what size unit you’ll need to maintain proper moisture balance. Excess moisture in your home doesn’t just compromise your home’s structure, it can be harmful to you and your family’s health as well. Adding a whole home dehumidifier not only reduce the excess moisture, but it can also combat its many harmful effects.
Effects to Your Health and How a Whole Home Dehumidifier Can Help
The most important reason to limit excess moisture in your home is for the health of you and your family. High humidity levels promote dust mites, mold, and mildew growth. It can cause allergy symptoms such as coughing and wheezing. It can cause irritations to your skin and lungs. If left untreated, it can lead to more dangerous respiratory problems down the road. An Aprilaire dehumidifier not only reduces the moisture in the air, but it also contains a filter which helps remove contaminates and improves indoor air quality.
Effects to Your Home
Unfortunately, we aren’t just talking about the smell, although, a musty and moldy odor is often one of the most obvious signs the humidity is too high. High humidity levels often result in damp carpets or furniture which creates an unpleasant stench. The damage can also create water stains on your walls or ceilings. Excess moisture can also cause floorboards to warp which eventually causes your home’s structure to become compromised. An Aprilaire dehumidification system can help ensure none of these issues occur.
