Most places across the United States endure varying fluctuations in humidity levels, particularly when the seasons change. During the winter months, humidity tends to be low. In the summer, it’s usually fairly high. As a resident of Warner Robins, Georgia, you undoubtedly know how hot and humid it can get during spring and summer. Fortunately, connecting a dehumidifier to your cooling system makes it simple to control humidity levels in your home. A dehumidifier can lower indoor humidity, increase the efficiency of your AC system and decrease your cooling bills.
Managing Indoor Humidity Levels
Lots of moisture in the air can make you feel warmer. A dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air. As a result, it helps you feel cooler even though the temperature is the same. This is especially of benefit during the summertime when humidity levels are high.
Instead of adding wear and tear to the AC system by making the temperature cooler, you can run your dehumidifier. Connecting a dehumidifier to your cooling system is one of the easiest ways to increase AC efficiency and decrease cooling expenses.
Decreasing Allergy and Asthma Symptoms
Along with high levels of moisture comes a breeding ground for different pathogens, including dust mites and bacteria. A dehumidifier reduces these pathogens as it removes excess moisture from the air. This provides great relief to those suffering from allergies or asthma. A notable way the dehumidifier improves allergy and asthma symptoms is by reducing nasal and respiratory passage irritation, which makes it easier to breathe.
Many homeowners pair a whole-home dehumidifier with an air purification system to further improve indoor air quality. A whole-home dehumidifier provides a streamlined approach to tackling both humidity and indoor allergens. It also increases indoor comfort by improving air quality while simultaneously helping the AC system operate with the utmost efficiency. As a result, it helps you breathe easier and sleep better.
