At Harriman Heating & Air Conditioning, we install, repair, and maintain whole-house dehumidifiers, helping keep your Livonia area home’s humidity regulated, thereby contributing to your and your home’s good health. Excess humidity has a way of wreaking havoc in your home. With a whole-house dehumidifier, you can control the moisture level, keeping your comfort level right where you want it.
Our newer homes here in Michigan tend to be built more airtight than ever. This is good news for preventing energy from leaking out of our homes, but not so great news when it comes to controlling the humidity levels inside. With things locked down so tightly, fresh air cannot sneak in and help dissipate any growing humidity.
Why You Want a Whole-House Dehumidifier
It is critical you control your home’s indoor humidity levels. When levels reach high percentages, such as over 50 percent, problems ensue. This moist environment is conducive to mold and mildew growth, especially in prone areas, such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements, and attics. Allowing high humidity invites mold and mildew to thrive, and critters such as cockroaches, dust mites, centipedes, and termites move in being attracted to moist environments.
On top of the health problems you may experience from the moisture, like respiratory issues, your home will suffer as well. High levels of moisture can cause damage to the structure of your home, as well as your home’s contents. Wood, carpeting, upholstery, bedding, and metal are all negatively affected by humidity.
A whole-house dehumidifier handles your home’s moist air by working with your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. The dehumidifier draws the water from the air, sending the now-dry air through your HVAC system and distributing it throughout your home. The extracted moisture is transferred through your plumbing system.
This process manages your home’s dust, mold, and microorganism growth, giving you cleaner air to breathe. Any allergy or asthma suffers in your home will certainly notice a marked positive difference, tendering your living environment healthier for everyone.
