It’s not the heat, but the humidity making you uncomfortable. This may not be entirely true, but it is something that we’ve all heard from time to time, and the fact of the matter is that excess humidity can certainly add to one’s discomfort. How can one go about resolving this issue in his or her home, though? By having a whole-house dehumidifier installed therein, by the professional IAQ technicians on our staff. Don’t waste your time moving a small, ineffective, portable dehumidifier around the house from room to room. These appliances have their uses, but if you want to combat excessive humidity throughout your entire home, a whole-house dehumidifier in Hanford, CA is certainly the way to go.
What Kinds of Problems can Excess Humidity Cause?
Humid air really retains heat, so it can make the heat of a summer day feel even more oppressive than it already does. Of course, excess humidity in the air also makes it more difficult for the sweat on one’s body to evaporate. This evaporation of sweat is the body’s natural cooling process, so its hindrance is a serious issue and can lead to real discomfort. The effects of excess humidity don’t stop at simple discomfort, though.
Very humid air can also lead to a number of different problems with your property itself. You may notice wooden floorboards or furniture warping, for instance, and wood rot may even set in throughout your home. Do you smell the unpleasant odor of mildew throughout your home? High humidity levels can promote it, as well as the growth of biological pollutants, including viruses, mold, and bacteria. This not only puts your comfort at risk due to aggravated allergies, but may also lead to illness in your home. Dial our number to avoid the levels of humidity that can lead to such problems.
