Feeling muggy inside your home? Try installing a whole-house dehumidifier.
High humidity can be a drag, especially if you are stuck indoors all day. Installing a whole-house dehumidifier inside your Central Illinois home or business can help zap away some of that moisture to restore your indoor air quality (IAQ).
Our team at MB Heating and Cooling can install your whole-house dehumidifier so that it seamlessly integrates with the rest of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. We’re a trusted source in Lincoln, IL when it comes to delivering whole-house solutions that help you achieve unsurpassed comfort and substantial cost savings.
How Does a Dehumidifier Work?
A whole-house dehumidifier connects to your home’s return ductwork to treat air as it circulates from your living areas to the heating and cooling system. As air moves into the dehumidifier, it is cooled. Doing so allows moisture from the air to condense and form water droplets.
These droplets fall into the dehumidifier’s collection pan and are drained away through its dedicated drain lines while the dry air continues to your heating and cooling system for conditioning.
Why Should You Install a Home Dehumidifier System?
A home dehumidification system keeps airborne moisture levels in the appropriate range. Your ideal indoor humidity level is between 35 and 50 percent. Anything higher and your home can quickly become a breeding ground for dust mites and mold.
Here are some benefits you’ll enjoy from installing a dehumidifier in your Lincoln home:
- Does the job of moisture management, so your cooling system won’t have to work as hard
- Helps you cool off with less humidity inside the home
- Saves you money on energy bills because you can cool down at higher temperatures when the air is dry
- Prevents moisture damage inside your home
- Protects against damaging mold growth and harmful mold exposure
- Reduces the concentration of indoor allergens and pollutants
Excessive moisture attacks your home and your health. It can cause the paint to bubble up and furniture to warp. High humidity covers you like a wet blanket, making us hotter and a lot less comfortable. For anyone with a respiratory issue, the high humidity levels impact their ability to breathe easily.
