Top 6 Reasons to Invest in a Dehumidifier

Did you know that normal activities that you do every day such as showering, cooking, and cleaning can add up to 25 pounds of moisture to your air?

You aren’t imagining things.  There’s a reason you feel heavy and like you’re dragging when the humidity is high.  This humidity is not only uncomfortable, but it can wreak havoc on our homes, allergies, utility bills, and of course…our hair.  Installing a dehumidifier is one of the best ways to fight the effects that high humidity has on our lives.d

Top 6 Reasons to Have a Dehumidifier

1. Protects your home’s furnishings. 

Too much humidity can lead to wood warping and rotting, and draperies and other furniture developing mold and mildew.

2. Helps to reduce allergy symptoms. 

One of the most common allergy triggers, the dust mite, thrives in high humidity areas. When humidity levels are decreased, your home will not be as welcoming for these pesky little bugs.  Mold, another prevalent allergy trigger, is also often found in high humidity areas.  A dehumidifier can help to lessen both of these agitators.

3. Improves your home’s comfort. 

Humid air makes you feel sticky, hot, and clammy.  When the air is muggy, it is even hard to sleep.

4. Makes your home smell better.

You know that damp basement smell?  That’s because that air is filled with moisture.  Use a dehumidifier to dry out the air and get rid of that musty basement-y smell.

5. Increases energy efficiency.

Humid air feels warmer, right?  So, when the air is filled with moisture the air conditioner is working extra hard to help you feel cool because it is fighting against humidity and temperature.  A dehumidifier will help to decrease your cooling costs during those summer months.

6. Keeps cereals and breads fresher for longer. 

When the humidity is high, your cereal and breads will not maintain that crunchy freshness for as long.  Keeping the humidity at bay will help to lengthen the shelf life of these popular foods.

Dehumidifiers can either be portable, plug into an outlet, and work to only remove moisture in single rooms, or they can be installed as part of your HVAC system to do the whole house.  Contact FLAME to learn about the right choice for you today.
