Summertime in Centre County, PA tends to be warm and can get to be rather humid. While your air conditioner removes some excess moisture from the air in your home, it might not be able to pull out enough to maintain an optimal level of indoor comfort. Read on to find out how a whole-home dehumidifier could improve your family’s summers.
Feel Cooler Without Lowering the Temperature
Your air conditioner already works hard during the warmest months of the year. If your home’s humidity level is higher than 50-60%, you more than likely won’t be very comfortable. That’s mainly because your sweat can’t evaporate when the humidity level is too high. By lowering your home’s humidity level to a comfortable range, dehumidifiers help you feel more comfortable without adjusting the thermostat.
Maximize Your Air Conditioner’s Efficiency
All over the planet, we’re continuing to see new record highs in terms of temperature year after year. Your air conditioner experiences a lot of wear and tear trying to keep your home comfortable. Using a whole-home dehumidifier can help to reduce the workload of your air conditioner.
Cooling systems are more efficient and effective when your home’s humidity is within the optimal range. Your system won’t have to work as hard to cool the air, so it may even last a little longer. This increase in efficiency and performance means you could save money on operating costs and boost your family’s comfort all at the same time.
Enhance Indoor Air Quality
According to Energy Star, some whole-house dehumidifiers can remove up to 170 pints of water every day. Getting all of this extra moisture out of the air helps to eliminate conditions that allow organic growth to thrive. With fewer allergens suspended in your home’s air, you’ll probably find that you can breathe more easily.
