DEHUMIDIFIER SERVICES IN BURLINGTON, UNION, HEBRON, FLORENCE, KY, AND SURROUNDING AREAS
Anyone who lives in the Burlington, KY area knows that it can get extremely hot and humid in the summer months. The high heat can start in the summer and stretch to the late fall, giving you very little relief throughout the year. This relentless humidity can lead to moisture buildup in your home. If it seems like your home is constantly humid, even with the air conditioner running, call Poston Brothers right away. Excessive humidity can lead to moisture buildup. A whole-house dehumidifier can help prevent this accumulation and help make your home more comfortable in the summer.
HOW DOES A WHOLE HOUSE DEHUMIDIFIER WORK?
Whole house dehumidifiers work by reducing the moisture within the air of your home. A dehumidifier for your whole home will be installed within your HVAC system, usually at the return duct. Air will pass through this duct on its way back to the HVAC system, and airborne moisture will be condensed and collected. The excess moisture will then be drained out of your home through an attached drain.
SIGNS YOUR HOME NEEDS A WHOLE HOUSE DEHUMIDIFIER
If your house feels occasionally humid, you might not need a whole house dehumidifier. If you can’t sleep at night because it just feels constantly humid in your home, then you should consider a dehumidifier. Here are some other signs you might need a whole house dehumidifier:
MOISTURE AND CONDENSATION ON THE INSIDE OF YOUR WINDOWS
One of the telltale signs that you may need a whole house dehumidifier is the buildup of moisture and condensation inside your windows. Humidity simply builds up and collects in these areas. If your windows are “crying” from the inside, it may be time to dehumidify.
HARD TO GET COMFORTABLE
Have you ever heard someone say that it’s hot, but “it’s a dry heat”? Dry heat tends to be less uncomfortable than wet heat or humidity. Humidity is that weight from moisture in the air. While it might be a comfortable 80 degrees outside, the humidity makes the air feel much worse. Unfortunately, we get a lot of humidity in the summer months in Kentucky, and this means it can be extremely difficult to get comfortable. You should be able to seek relief from the humidity once you go inside, but if you can still feel the humidity inside your home, a whole house dehumidifier can help.
POOR VENTILATION IN BATHROOMS AND KITCHENS
Moisture tends to build up in rooms with sinks and showers, like bathrooms and kitchens. Ideally, these rooms would be adequately ventilated, and excess moisture can be sent outdoors. But this isn’t always the case. Kitchens and bathrooms often lack windows and proper ventilation. That’s why both kitchens and bathrooms have powerful exhaust fans. If your exhaust fan is working fine, but you’re still noticing a lot of moisture buildup, then you probably have poor ventilation in these rooms. A whole house dehumidifier can fix these problems and reduce the buildup of moisture, mold, mildew, and odors in both the bathroom and kitchen.
Do papers tend to get soggy in your basement? Have you tried to store clothes in your basement but they’ve grown mold and mildew? A damp basement is one of the worst effects of excess moisture in your home. Allow a dehumidifier to dry up your basement and make it a more comfortable space.
Mold is the biggest red flag that you have moisture problems in your home. Mold growth isn’t just unsightly, but it can also cause indoor air quality problems. Spores from mold can spread from room to room and can cause breathing problems and headaches. If you see mold growing, have it addressed immediately and then consider a whole house humidifier if it becomes a constant problem.
