If you want to start an argument with people, ask them what the perfect temperature is for their home during the summer! No matter where your preference lies, if you have to keep your thermostat set low to be comfortable, chances are your air conditioner is doing double duty.
Moisture makes air feel warmer. When humid air creeps into your home, your air conditioner has to do double to work to cool the air AND remove the humidity. This means your cooling system is working hard and using more energy than it needs to just to keep you comfortable. Here are some signs you may need a dehumidifier in your home.
1. Inside of Your Windows Are Wet
If you notice condensation on the inside of your windows and doors, you probably have too much moistier in your home. A whole-home dehumidifier will eliminate that excess moisture in every area of the home preventing condensation buildup.
2. You Have Mold
Mold is something nobody wants to find in their home. You want to trust that the air you breathe in your home is clean but even small amounts of mold can leave you feeling uneasy. Finding mold in your home is a sure indicator of excess moisture. Keeping your humidity down with a dehumidifier prevents mold from returning.
