Dehumidifier – What Is It and Is It For You?

Humidity can be a real nuisance, particularly when it’s really humid outside – which is a common weather condition during our GTA summers. Dehumidification is essential to control moisture and keep your home in a healthy and comfortable state.

If your answer is ‘yes’ to any of the following questions, your home may require dehumidification:

  1. Do you often find yourself sweating inside the house, even when temperatures are average?
  2. Does your skin feel sticky in the summer or clammy in the winter?
  3. Does your home or specific rooms have moldy odor?
  4. Have you noticed wood floors, trims and furniture suffering from distortion or rotting?
  5. Are you having problems with bug infestation in your home?
  6. Do you see condensation on windows and mirrors?

Left uncontrolled, extra moisture in your home can lead to mold and mildew growth, dust mite spread, and health issues such as allergies and asthma.

Regulating Humidity in Your Home

Moisture is added to your home on a daily basis by regular daily activities, and even your body itself. Although your air conditioner provides some dehumidification while performing its main purpose of regulating the temperature, some additional dehumidification may be necessary to achieve the most comfortable and healthy environment in your house during the extra hot and humid summers we’ve been having in the recent years.
