Allergies Thrive in Humidity
Many allergy triggers such as mold, mildew, and dust mites thrive in humid areas. These can cause uncomfortable reactions such as a stuffy nose, itchy eyes, sneezing or difficulty breathing and skin rashes. Childhood asthma can be caused by mold which can become a serious issue. As many people struggle with allergies, this alone is reason enough to invest in a dehumidifier.
Benefits of a Dehumidifier
There are many benefits to having a dehumidifier installed in your home. Firstly, dehumidifiers reduce humidity levels allowing your home to be dryer and have less allergy triggers. Dehumidifiers can help reduce mold and mildew, along with the musty odors that come along with them. They allow you to breath easier and more comfortably, as well as reduce the dust in your home. On top of all of these benefits, a dehumidifier also lowers energy costs in your home. When your home is humid, the AC must work harder and let out more cool air, raising energy costs.
Signs You Need a Dehumidifier
If you notice any of the following things in your home, you should consider investing in a dehumidifier.
Water stains on the walls or ceilings
High humidity rooms with poor ventilation
Frequent condensation on windows
Small mold spots growing on the walls or ceiling
Must and mildew smells
It is also feasible to consider getting a dehumidifier if you live in an apartment building because it is common for mold to travel through ventilation systems and build up in the walls between apartments.
