A dehumidifier reduces the humidity of your indoor air. Dehumidifiers produce an excess amount of water that has been completely removed from the conditioned air. The water that has been collected cannot be utilized for drinking, however. A number of designs such as ionic membrane dehumidifiers get rid of water in a vapor instead of liquid form. For more information on the benefits of installing this unit, we invite you to speak with one of our air quality specialists. We serve residential and commercial customers throughout Long Island and Five Boroughs.
Is a Dehumidifier Right for You?
Many people ask if a dehumidifier is right for them. Below are signs that it’s time to consider installing a dehumidifier.
Musty odors: The presence of these odors in crawl spaces, basements, garages, and entrances often signals the existence of mildew and mold. Possible causes range from improper door and window seals to construction sealing issues and high groundwater seepage.
Condensation: Are you experiencing door and window condensation? Water beading on the window, condensation on interior glass, or the presence of vapor or fog are typical signs that there is too much moisture in a room. This will even happen if the dehumidifier installed is too large for the room. We will help you solve this problem and prevent any woodwork from damage.
Also, keep in mind that this extra moisture will form an environment that is conducive to the growth of mildew and mold. Mold will often look like a dark or black grunge on the bottom of window trims or in the patio door track. The presence of a dehumidifier, however, will effectively remove the moisture while restoring proper indoor humidity levels.
What’s the Benefit?
Installing a dehumidifier will help make your indoor space more comfortable. These devices are used to draw out excess amounts of humidity from the air and keep a room’s general appearance clean and dry.
Health benefits: Dehumidifiers can also help alleviate some health issues. Mildew and mold are consistently linked to a number of respiratory problems such as asthma. A dehumidifier helps to reduce the chance of mildew and mold from developing.
Additional benefits: Certain areas, such as the laundry room, have a tendency to be humid. This means that if you use your laundry room to hang dry any clothing items, it may take longer than a day for moisture to be fully removed. Having a dehumidifier allows your laundry to dry faster while reducing the need for cleaning and additional dusting. This form of air filtration helps to remove dust, leaving you with less to clean.
