Did you know humidity levels over 60% encourage corrosion or decay in expensive wood and metals, encourage an increase in dust mites, termites, and other insect infestations, and support the growth of mold and mildew? This is especially concerning for allergy and asthma sufferers because excess humidity levels in carpets, fabrics, and the home can increase allergy and asthma triggers. High humidity helps ‘feed' mold spores and contributes to musty, stale odors. For these reasons, whole home dehumidifiers benefit the health of your home and family.
You might think that having a portable dehumidifier in one or two rooms is the way to go for your entire home. However, residential whole house dehumidifiers have many benefits that work to make not just one room healthier, but your entire home.
Benefits of a Whole-House Dehumidifier
Benefits of whole-house dehumidifier provide your home with a strong defense against common problems, reducing or eliminating:
- Mold and mildew growth
- Musty odors
- Allergy and asthma triggers
- Excess humidity throughout the entire home; not just one room
- Frequent maintenance of a room dehumidifier
- Energy costs associated with an air conditioner
- That moist, clammy feeling that comes with excess moisture
- Damp fabrics of bedding and clothing
- Pests attracted to moisture, such as dust mites, spiders, and silverfish
How Do Whole-House Dehumidifiers Work?
Dehumidifiers work when warm air is brought into HVAC systems and is passed over refrigerated coils, causing condensation that goes down the drain. Through this method, moisture is gradually removed. Once the humidity set point is reached, the dehumidifier automatically shuts off. In addition, since the excess moisture automatically empties into your home’s drain, you don’t have to repeatedly empty heavy buckets of water.
Wi-Fi & Touch Screen
Our Wi-Fi and touch screen control models remove up to 100 pints of moisture per day. Wi-Fi control means that you can check the status of your unit or change the settings from wherever there is a Wi-Fi signal, even while out of town. Imagine not having to get up from your favorite recliner or leave the beach to change settings.
With intuitive digital controls, you can also easily set and control humidity levels inside your living space to reduce harmful airborne contaminants that impact your home's health and comfort.
Each dehumidifier model includes duct collars for incorporation with your HVAC system. Also included is a five-year warranty.
