We’re hitting the 90s already, and we know that in Wesley Chapel we don’t hit the 90s without the humidity coming with it! Humidity makes the air feel so much warmer than it is, and when you’re already at, or over, the 90 degree mark, that extra, moist heat can feel unbearable, both inside and out. Humidity makes our air conditioners work that much harder to achieve the coolness we want in our homes; one great way to help both you and your air conditioner during our hot, humid summers is to install a whole-house dehumidifier in your Wesley Chapel home.
Benefits of Whole-House Dehumidifiers
Since 1904, Ierna’s Heating & Cooling has been helping Florida residents in the greater Tampa Bay area achieve the comfort they want inside their homes, and as a result, we’ve seen first-hand how adding a whole-home dehumidifier helps. Here are a few benefits you can gain when you add a whole-house dehumidifier to your home:
Decrease Allergic Reactions to Dust
Dust mites thrive in moist settings; by removing extra moisture that may be contributing to their growth, you can help reduce the amount of dust allergens in your property.
Prevent Mold Growth
Mold, another serious allergen, grows in shaded, moist areas. Mold growth can damage property and cause serious reactions for those allergic to it. As with dust mites, removing the extra humidity from your home discourages mold growth, making it healthier.
Better Energy Efficiency
Your AC can do its job more effectively with a whole-home dehumidifier. Why? Humidity holds heat; by removing the excess humidity, you help to remove heat that your air conditioner would otherwise be battling. When your air conditioner isn’t using more power to accommodate for the excess moisture in the air, it uses less energy, which can result in lower energy bills for you.
Humidity clings to the skin, making the air feel sticky and uncomfortable. By removing the extra humidity in your home, you can experience a greater comfort level without having to lower the temperature on your thermostat.
Your Wesley Chapel dehumidifier can help provide comfort, energy savings and better health for allergy sufferers.
