If your home struggles with excess humidity, you could benefit from a dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers extract humidity from the air by running air through a cold metal coil or grid. The water vapor in the air condenses when it touches the grid, eventually draining out through your HVAC system’s drain pipe. Dehumidifiers are a great option if you struggle with excessive humidity, you don’t run your air conditioner all the time, or your home is not equipped with a central cooling system. In most cases, they require very little maintenance and they use only a small amount of additional energy compared to what you would normally pay to run your cooling system as you do. Some even have the ability to seamlessly integrate with your central air conditioning system and be controlled by a modern smart thermostat!
Are you tired of constantly applying lotion during the winter months? Does it seem like your skin always feels dry and unhealthy when it’s cold out? This isn’t your imagination; it’s due to a lack of humidity in your air. A humidifier can greatly improve skin and hair health, reduce respiratory problems, and so many other issues that are common during winter.
