What are the benefits of using a whole house dehumidifier?
Having a dehumidifier in your home can offer a variety of benefits, including:
- Lowers energy costs by helping your air conditioner run more efficiently
- Reduces dust in your home by increasing air circulation
- Helps your clothes dry faster
- Breads and other food items will stay fresh longer
- Prevents mold from developing on your clothes, furniture and linens
- Reduces odors in your home caused by mold and mildew
Dehumidifiers even offer potential health benefits for you and your family. By creating a less humid environment, they help you breathe better and reduce irritation to the skin. Lower humidity levels also help people with allergies or asthma by preventing the buildup of mold, mildew and dust mites.
How do dehumidifiers cut down on energy costs?
Many people turn their air conditioners up when high humidity makes their homes feel muggy. However, the temperatures aren’t always hot enough to run the AC during spring and fall.
House dehumidifiers provide a more effective alternative by affecting the “real feel” temperature in your home. Humidity can cancel out the cooling effects of air conditioning, making your home feel warmer than it truly is. This means you will be keeping your air conditioning system running longer without getting as many benefits from it as you should.
Dehumidifiers counteract this issue, removing moisture from the air in order to keep your air conditioner from working overtime. This can help you significantly cut down the costs of heating and cooling your home.
Are dehumidifiers noisy?
While some brands can be loud, part of what makes the AprilAire the best whole house dehumidifier is how quietly they work. They bring down the moisture level in your home without increasing the noise level. AprilAire dehumidifiers can help you balance your home’s humidity quietly without disrupting your sleep or productivity.
Can I install a dehumidifier in my home’s crawl space?
If you have crawl spaces in your home, a dehumidifier can help keep them dry and clean and prevent musty odors. Before you’re ready for an AprilAire whole house dehumidifier installation, however, you need to seal off the crawl space from all outside air.
If you install an in duct dehumidifier without sealing the crawl space vents, then you will be trying to remove moisture from all air inside and outside of the crawl space.
