What is a Dehumidifier?

A dehumidifier is an Indoor Air Quality product we carry that extracts moisture from the air to lower humidity levels in a home. Both whole-house and portable dehumidifiers work by extracting the humid air over cold coils and forcing the humidity to condense into water droplets that accumulate in a basin attached to the device or system — or directed down a floor drain with a hose. Portable dehumidifiers must be emptied manually. However, most whole-home dehumidifiers have a pipe, drain, or hose connected to the unit for worry-free convenience.

Protects Belongings

A less humid home means clothing will dry faster, cereals, breads and other dry foods will remain fresh longer without going stale, and you won’t find signs of rust or corrosion on things like computer equipment, tools and electronics.

Better for Health

Reduce Bad Odors

Dehumidifiers help reduce odors in the home that can accompany mildew and mold — getting rid of that “musty” or “rotting” smell that’s pungent and can be offensive.

When to Use a Dehumidifier:

In general, dehumidifiers are essential during warm, rainy weather and during the humid months of summer.
If your home or any part of it has a humidity reading of more than 50%, we suggest having one installed or using an existing dehumidifier that’s functional. We can take a reading or multiple readings throughout your home, if necessary, to figure out the level of humidity. Most smart thermostats include sensors that can take this reading as well.

In any case, the following are signs it’s time to invest in a dehumidifier:

Mold and mildew growth

Rotting wood

Dark or wet spots on ceilings or other surfaces

Condensation on the inside of windows

4 Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality

Not sure if you need to improve the quality of your indoor air? Here's a few tips to determine if you have poor Indoor Air Quality:

Dust Buildup

If you have dust buildup around your home and the area around air vents, you might have an indoor air quality problem. At the very least, the buildup of pet dander, pollen, dust mites and other particles can be addressed with an air filter upgrade or HEPA filtration system.

Unusual Odors

Strange odors from chemicals, mold or mildew growth, pest infestation, or the decomposition of dust, dirt and debris on surfaces in the home all indicate indoor air quality problems.

Air Distribution Inconsistencies

Cold and warm spots are indicative of air distribution problems, which can also result in indoor air quality issues. If your HVAC system isn’t maintaining proper temperature and humidity levels, your indoor air quality is likely suffering the effects of this.

Mold & Mildew Growth

Mold and mildew growth often come with high relative humidity levels and poor air circulation in the home. A telltale musty smell is often apparent in homes with mold issues, alongside green and black (mold) spots on surfaces, particularly around sinks, tubs, and other areas that are frequently exposed to moisture/water.
