At What Point Should I Consider Whole-House Dehumidification?

With all that can go wrong with the quality of the air in one’s home, the pursuit of great indoor air quality  may seem rightly daunting. The good news is that, by working with the IAQ specialists on our staff, you can overcome the specific air quality issues which plague your comfort and put your health — and even the condition of your property — at risk. One of the most common problems that homeowners experience is the presence of excessive moisture in the air filling their homes.

In such events, the use of a whole-house dehumidifier is strongly encouraged. Determining if such a system is right for you can be tricky, though. Call Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning if you suspect that you may benefit from the use of a dehumidifier in Fresno, CA.

  • Sticky Surfaces and/or Water Staining: One of the most obvious signs of overly humid air in the home is surfaces which feel sticky to the touch. You may also notice that there are water stains at the base of your walls or on carpeting. Condensation on exposed pipes or window panes may also be present.
  • Aggravated Allergy/Asthma Symptoms: It is not uncommon for allergy and asthma sufferers to experience aggravated symptoms in very humid homes. The moisture in the air can cause greater pollutant adherence, leaving any such homeowners or residents to cough, sniffle and sneeze their way through the day.
  • Warped/Rotting Wood: Should the humidity level in your home be high enough, it is very possible that you will bear witness to some property damage as a result. Very humid air can cause wooden floorboards to warp or even to rot. By drying out the air in your home, you can prevent any such damage to wooden components in your home. A whole-house dehumidifier is far and away the most convenient and effective means by which to resolve problems with excessive humidity in your home.
