Ultra-Aire 70H Whole-Home Dehumidifier
It’s been a long road leading up to spring, but summer will be here before you know it. Unfortunately, in the Harrisonburg area, this means lots of humid days. So although the idea of warmer weather might get you excited, feeling sticky and having difficulty breathing isn’t something anyone is looking forward to.
The Importance of Dehumidification
With the abundance of moisture in the air soon to be a constant, what can you do to save yourself, your family and your home from the havoc that high humidity can wreak?
Dehumidification removes the excess moisture from your home’s air so you can experience the benefits.
When it’s humid, no matter what temperature your home is, it’ll feel even hotter. Since high moisture content in the air prevents sweat from evaporating as quickly, your body’s own cooling mechanism is thrown out of whack. By using a dehumidifier, you’ll feel cooler and more comfortable, helping to ease the discomfort of summer.
Reduce Home Damage Risk
Moisture feeds mold, so if your home is too humid, you may soon experience problems with mold growth, particularly in dark, damp areas. Reducing moisture in your home can help to prevent the risk of structural damage caused by mold.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Mold spores and excess moisture can cause issues like allergic reactions, irritation and difficulty breathing. A dehumidifier can actually help to keep your home healthier, with improved indoor air quality, during the humid seasons.
Whole-Home Dehumidification with the Ultra-Aire 70H
Although portable dehumidifiers exist, if you truly want to reap the benefitsthat less moisture can bring, you should install a whole-home dehumidifier.
