Combat Missouri Humidity with a Whole Home Dehumidifier from SmartHouse

interior condensation can be solved with a dehumidifier
July 19, 2017

If the air in your home feels thick, or musty, or just not crisp, there is a good chance that you are dealing with excessive humidity.  Water content in the air – or humidity –  is not just a comfort issue but can also be a health issue as high levels create an ideal condition for the growth of mold and mildew as well as viruses, bacteria, and dust mites.

The good thing is, SmartHouse offers solutions for you to have your home be the exception to the rule. Installing a dehumidifier can help regain crisp air in any season inside your house. At SmartHouse, we work hard to offer the products and services you need to combat moisture in our air.

What is a dehumidifier?

Dehumidifiers function by circulating air through a machine that removes moisture from the air and collects it. The water is then sent down a drain and the dry air is returned to your home.  Air can become humid from natural geography, seasonal changes, and rapid changes in weather temperature as well as from homeowner activities like breathing, cooking, showering and bathing.

The brands we use at SmartHouse vary depending on the size constraints and demand of your home. We carry several brands that are sure to meet your needs and help increase the comfort of your home.

Whole Home Dehumidifiers

Dehumidifiers are not just small appliances from your average home improvement store. Whole-home dehumidifiers can protect and improve your air quality from floor to ceiling. Standalone dehumidifiers, while affordable and easy to maneuver, are meant for small spaces and are generally not sufficient to take care of the humidity for an entire home.  A whole home dehumidifier functions through the ducting system of your home and eliminates the need to empty the water reservoir once it is at capacity.

Signs you need a Dehumidifier

Do you find yourself feeling that you need to turn the temperature very low to be comfortable? Perhaps your air is already the right temperature but still feels “muggy”. Cooling or circulating the air may not be enough to relieve these symptoms. Here are a few others signs you may consider the investment of a whole home dehumidifier:

  • Condensation in the windows, interior glass, and mirrors
  • Wooden floors, wall trim, or furniture is moldy, warping, or rotting
  • Clammy feel to indoor air
  • Musty smell
  • Visible mold growth

Benefits of a Dehumidifier

There are many positive side effects to installing a whole home dehumidifier. Make the most of the feeling of crisp air and decreasing the effects of humid air on the quality and comfort of your home. Some of the benefits of a dehumidifier include:

  • Eliminate the moist environment bugs and insects prefer
  • Eliminate opportunities for mold, mildew, and dust mites
  • Eliminate health risks and improve symptoms from asthma and allergies
