Problems Caused by High Humidity

kids-with-dogWe all want to live comfortably, right? Much as you may love the heat of the summer season, there is no denying that sometimes the heat just gets to be too much, and it makes it impossible to live in that comfort that you desire. Of course, the heat of the air outside is not the only thing that you are going to have to contend with this summer season.

You will also have to deal with high humidity levels, and very high humidity can cause big problems for both your comfort and for your property in general. That is why you may need to use a whole-house dehumidifier in Fresno, CA.

High Humidity? So What?

If you think that high humidity levels are not really going to affect your overall quality of life, think again. It can and will do so in a number of ways. We don’t like to make sweeping statements without backing them up with examples, so consider the following issues that high humidity can lead to.

  • Warped wooden floorboards and fixtures.
  • The development of mold and increase in other biological pollutants.
  • Musty odors.
  • Staining on carpets and wallpaper.
  • Excessive strain on your air conditioner.
  • Respiratory issues.

Why Choose a Whole-House Dehumidifier?

You may have had some experience with portable dehumidifiers at some point. These units can be helpful for drying out a single room or a studio apartment, but they are not that well suited to use in homes requiring substantial dehumidification throughout. You’ll either wind up having to use multiple units to do the job effectively, or you’ll have to move a single unit around the house throughout the day. This is not cost effective or convenient.

Instead, let us install a whole-house dehumidifier in your home that will work in conjunction with your existing HVAC system. That way, you don’t even have to worry about draining the bucket! The water removed from the air will simply be drained out of your home.
