How High Humidity Affects Your Home
Why is high humidity such a problem? The main reason is that humidity restricts how well the human body can release heat through perspiration. With too much water vapor in the air, it’s hard for sweat to evaporate from your skin.
This means that more heat remains trapped in your body, making warm temperatures feel hotter and more stifling. With your home’s humidity lowered below 50%, you and everyone inside will feel more comfortable. You can also expect to save money, since you won’t need to run your air conditioning system as frequently.
High humidity can trigger other problems as well. It creates moisture damage for a house, leading to wood rot and mildew growth. It also promotes the development of mold, which can release harmful spores into the air. Balancing the humidity will help the health of your house and everyone who lives there.
Professional Whole–House Dehumidifier Installation
An air conditioning system has some dehumidifier properties: as it draws heat from the air along the evaporator coil, it also draws moisture. But an air conditioner isn’t specifically designed for dehumidifying a home; you’ll need to have a professional install a special whole–house dehumidifier into the HVAC system.
A whole–house dehumidifier works in a similar fashion to an air conditioner, with refrigerant in a coil drawing moisture from the air. It also draws heat, but to avoid interfering with the operation of the air conditioning system, the dehumidifier reheats the air to its regular temperature after lowering its moisture level. HVAC professionals will make certain your dehumidifier is properly sized and hooked up so that it doesn’t make your home too dry.
