Affordable Dehumidifer Installation- HSXP
There are some things that are simply out of our control. The condition of the weather is one of them. Sometimes excess moisture in the air can lead to humidity, which Tennessee is no stranger to. Increased humidity can make a hot day feel hotter, as well as cause respiratory stressors in some individuals. Areas within your home that are closed off can sometimes trap in this moisture which can create a multitude of problems. Your home’s crawl space is especially susceptible to damage from moisture. Mold is sometimes a result of this trapped moisture, and everyone knows mold is not a good sign.
Do you know the signs your home will show that say you need a dehumidifier installed? Below are a couple of the telltale signs that your home could use a little extra protection.
- Increased mold growth is an obvious sign your home could benefit from the use of a dehumidifier. Mold requires oxygen and moisture to thrive, and excess humidity provides the perfect environment. Excess moisture inevitably means mold growth.
- Another obvious sign that your home should have a dehumidifier installed is condensation forming on your walls, floors and even windows. When the air is warm it contains moisture. Once this warm air hits a cool surface such as walls, floors, and windows it releases the moisture leaving water behind on the surface.
High humidity in your home can also cause stress on your home’s HVAC system. This can lead to a shortened lifespan and can make your system more prone to damages. Moisture in the air can also be damaging to your furniture and floors. Installing a home dehumidifier that protects your entire home is the best way to protect your home and the possessions within.
Installing a dehumidifier in your home will vary in cost depending on a couple factors. The size of your home, the type of dehumidifier, and labor will affect the cost of having a dehumidifier installed. Whole home dehumidifiers can be an upfront investment but can last anywhere from 5-10 years depending on how often you use it and how well it is maintained. The benefits you will receive though have no price tag. The comfort of your home will increase, you can save on energy costs, and your home will be protected against mold and moisture. Your HVAC system can only do so much. So consider investing in a whole home dehumidification system.
