Whole-House Dehumidifier Installation in Elk Grove Village

Are you looking to purchase a dehumidifier for your home? If you already have a central air conditioning system, chances are your HVAC system will help remove humidity from your home’s indoor air. However, your central AC might not be enough on excessively humid days or nights. If you are feeling damp and warm indoors, even with your AC running, you may need to purchase a whole-house dehumidifier.

Whole-house dehumidifiers improve home comfort by removing excess humidity from the indoor air. They also improve home air quality and help decrease electric bills.

If you’re interested in Midwest Comfort’s dehumidifier services, call us at 847-338-2777.

Signs Your Home Needs a Dehumidifier

Many homeowners assume that their air conditioning system removes humidity in the air, so there isn’t a need for a dehumidifier. However, the humidity in Elk Grove Village, can be too much for the average air conditioner to handle, so adding a whole-home dehumidifier can help remove humidity when your air conditioner can’t. If you’re not sure you need a dehumidifier, below are some signs you may need to install one in your home.

Multiple factors can determine if your home could benefit from installing a whole-house dehumidifier.

This includes:

  • If the indoor air in your home has a stagnant and musty smell.
  • Even with the AC on, you feel hot and sticky and have not been physically active.
  • If there is warping in wooden furniture, floors, or décor and/or you see mold.
  • If you have noticed condensation on your windows, mirrors, and cold drinks while the AC is in operation.
  • Insect infestations inside the home are also a telltale sign that indoor humidity levels are too high.
  • Ignoring the signs that your home may need a dehumidifier can lead to mold growth and health problems for you and your family.

Is Too Much Humidity Bad for Your Health?

Some humidity in your home is not bad; however, when the humidity is too high, you and your loved ones may be at risk of developing health problems. Excessive humidity levels in your home can lead to mold and mildew growth. It can also cause the spread of bacteria and dust mites. Mold, mildew, and dust mites can trigger allergies and harm asthma sufferers. Bacteria can and will make your family sick and in some cases, severely. If you have noticed any of these problems in your home, check into installing a whole-house dehumidifier.

When a dehumidifying system is installed in your home, it can be conveniently installed with your existing central heating and air system. The system will work with your HVAC and help reduce the humidity inside your home.

There are also other positive marks of having a dehumidifying system in your home, including:

  • Some dehumidifying system models also offer automatic fresh air ventilation. These models help reduce air irritants and pollutants within the home, increasing indoor air quality.
  • A whole-house dehumidifier requires virtually no maintenance, save for the air filter, which only needs to be cleaned once a year.
  • Dehumidifying systems use an automatic sensor to monitor your home’s indoor humidity levels. When humidity levels exceed the point of your comfort levels, it will run until humidity levels stabilize.
  • Typically, ideal humidity levels range from 30% to 50%. However, some people may require different levels to feel comfortable.

Humidifiers vs. Dehumidifiers

We’ve already explained what a dehumidifier is and how it can benefit your home. Too much humidity can damage the interior and furniture and cause health problems due to mold growth and other bacteria. But what about homes with insufficient humidity? That’s where a whole-home humidifier can help.

Illinois state residents already deal with a lot of humidity, so it seems crazy to install a system that adds humidity to your home. Dry air isn’t a problem in the summer, but it can become one during winter. In the winter, the air becomes drier as moisture leaves the air. This can cause your home to lack humidity, creating a poor air quality environment.

Dry air can make your home feel stuffy and stale. It can also lead to respiratory problems like nose bleeds, bronchitis, sinusitis, and asthma. Dry air can also make you feel like your home is colder than it is, which can increase your thermostat temperature. This only causes your home to feel twice as stuffy. Low humidity can also damage your wood flooring and furniture by causing it to dry out.

Below are some signs that you need to install a whole-home humidifier:

  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Dehydration
  • High levels of static electricity
  • Wood furniture and flooring that appears dried out and warped
  • Worsening allergy and asthma symptoms
