When to Consider Adding a Dehumidifier to Your Home

Does Your Home Have a Humidity Problem?High humidity levels are great when you are in a nice sauna working up a sweat. But things are different when you are at home, trying to keep cool! All the extra moisture in the air on a humid day makes it much harder to do so. And things are even worse when the inside of your home gets too humid!

If you are finding yourself battling humidity in your home just much as you are outdoors, then it may be a good idea to consider installing a whole-house dehumidifier in Fresno. We can tell you all about the signs that a dehumidifier installation is a good idea for your house.

Why Install a Whole-House Dehumidifier?

If you are noticing any of these issues in your home, we’d advise adding a dehumidifier to your home.

1. Condensation in your home on a hot day

Condensation is a sign that there is a lot of extra humidity in the air. While your AC does provide a small amount of dehumidification, it isn’t going to be able to battle humidity that is heavy enough to get your windows wet! If you are noticing heavier condensation on doors or windows in your home it may mean you should consider a dehumidifier.

2. Walls and other surfaces are damp to the touch

When you have a chance, run a hand along the walls or flat surfaces in your home. Are they damp to the touch? That isn’t good, especially because it makes a great environment for mildew growth! Damp surfaces in your home are a likely sign that you have a lot of extra moisture indoors which a dehumidifier would be able to combat.

3. You struggle with mold and mildew growth

Speaking of mold or mildew growth, how often are you discovering that you have to battle these unpleasant intruders? If you have areas that are increasingly and consistently prone to mold or mildew growth, it may be best to use a dehumidifier to reduce the excess moisture in the air. Keeping things a little drier helps to reduce the chances of mildew growth throughout the house.

4. It is harder than usual to cool things off

Water is great at holding onto heat. This is what makes hydronic radiant heaters so great at keeping homes warm. But in the summer, when you are trying to cool off, extra airborne moisture in your home will make it harder to reduce the temperature indoors. Using a dehumidifier to remove that extra humidity will make things easier on you and your AC this summer.
