Humidity Control by We Care Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Air:
Benefits of Dehumidification
If you suffer from asthma or allergies, you know that even the slightest stimuli can set off an attack. Dehumidifying your home can help reduce common allergens like mold, dust mites, mildew, etc. Not only can dehumidifying your home help with allergies and asthma but it can also make your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
When homes are humid, they tend to feel hotter than the thermostat would indicate. This causes homeowners to crank up the AC to eliminate the effects of the humidity, not heat. Dehumidifying your home can help avoid allergens while also reducing the propensity of your family members to run the air conditioner to combat the impact of humidity vs. heat.
Benefits of Humidification
In winter months it is common practice for homeowners to run their heaters on a daily basis, while this is great for temperature control it also sucks the moisture out of the air. Air that is devoid of the correct amounts of moisture can increase the spread of airborne germs. Proper air moisture can weigh down contaminants and cause them do fall out of the air’s circulation much faster than air without the correct amount of moisture.
Another aspect of winter that homeowners tend to look forward to less than finding parking during peak holiday shopping season is dry, cracked skin. Dry skin is exacerbated by indoor moisture being removed from homes and office buildings by the heat being run regularly. Adding a humidification system can help keep humidity levels at a comfortable range without having to forego the comfort of heat in the winter.
