A Whole-Home-Dehumidifier Makes Summertime More Enjoyable

Summertime in Peachtree Corners, GA, isn’t just hot. It’s also humid, and the humidity has a big impact on your comfort. A whole-home dehumidifier may be just what you need to make summertime more enjoyable. Keep reading to find out how a whole-home dehumidifier benefits your comfort, well-being, and budget.

Reduce Allergy Symptoms

When the indoor humidity level exceeds 50%, your home may have an increase in the concentration of allergens. In particular, organic growth and dust mites thrive in a warm, humid environment. These particles decrease your home’s indoor air quality. If you’ve noticed an increase in nasal and sinus congestion, sneezing or itchy eyes, nose, throat, or skin, a whole-home dehumidifier may reduce your symptoms and help you breathe easier.

Lower Utility Bills Without Sacrificing Comfort

Most air conditioners use a lot of electricity. When your air conditioner isn’t able to remove enough humidity from your home’s air, a whole-home dehumidifier is a good addition to your home comfort system. The dehumidifier will use less electricity than your cooling system. When the dehumidifier gets rid of the excess moisture, you may be able to set the thermostat to fan-only for the air conditioner on mild days and nights. This will lower your home’s total electricity usage and optimize your comfort.

Sleep Better at Night

High humidity levels make it difficult for your body to cool itself. Your skin isn’t able to perspire, and the moisture will stay on its surface. This makes you feel sticky and clammy. The heat can’t dissipate away from your body, so you’ll feel warm even if the air temperature is at an ideal level. According to the Sleep Foundation, you’ll sleep better when the humidity in your home is within the 30% to 50% range.
