Top Reasons to Buy a Dehumidifier

Dehumidifiers are not a luxurious expense or an item that someone enjoys purchasing. However, it may be a necessary expense depending on your home, to ensure the health and well-being of you and your home. Here are several reasons investing in a quality, high capacity dehumidifier is worth the expense.

1. Mold/Mildew in Your Home

It is quite common if you have a basement in your home, that it can be humid and may have a smell of mold or mildew. In addition, mold can cause substantial damage to the structure or foundation of your home. Mold growth can occur when humidity levels are above 45% and there is a food source such as drywall or wood. Mold can begin breaking down walls and floors of your home and ruin your belongings. If you purchase a high capacity dehumidifier it will help prevent mold from growing by keeping the humidity levels down.

2. Your Health and Allergies

Regardless of if you have allergies or not, drier air is better for breathing and circulation. If you are allergic to mold, then the humidity will make this worse and other allergens flourish in humid air. Dust mites are one example, that enjoy humidity. Therefore, by keeping humidity levels down it can help improve your allergies and breathing overall.

As you probably have experienced firsthand, humid weather makes it feel warmer, which would make you crank up the air conditioning. This will lead to a higher electricity bill and make your air conditioning unit to work more.
