With a dehumidifier, you can keep your family members from feeling stuffy in spring and summer. You can also prevent water damage from condensation on your windows or walls. Use a portable unit in one or two rooms at a time or have a whole-home model installed in your ductwork. Here are some of the best benefits of a dehumidifier for your River Oaks, Texas, home:

Better Comfort

Excess moisture encourages biological growth and pests, such as cockroaches, dust mites, silverfish and mice. It can lead to bad smells and asthma or allergy symptoms. A dehumidifier will help you avoid these problems and make your home more welcoming. It can prevent condensation and take the moisture that these organisms need to survive out of your indoor air. As a result, it keeps their populations from growing. Many whole-home dehumidifiers have humidity monitors. They can come on automatically if moisture levels rise too high.

Healthier Indoor Air Quality

Most dehumidifiers have their own air filter. They remove contaminants along with moisture from your home’s air. A dehumidifier can help your HVAC system’s filter catch biological growth, pollen, dirt and other pollutants in your home’s air. Better indoor air quality can improve airflow and extend your system’s life. Like the one for your HVAC system, you should change or wash your dehumidifier’s air filter once per month.

More Energy Savings

A lot of moisture in the air causes sweat to evaporate from your skin less quickly. This makes more humid homes feel warmer than houses with drier air. A dehumidifier makes higher temperatures more comfortable and lets you use your air conditioner less. As a result, it helps you save energy and lowers your utility bills.
