How Can a Whole Home Dehumidifier or Humidifier Help Me?

We get a full range of weather in our part of the world, and with such a climate comes different problems. For instance, during the winter, your home may become very dry indoors, especially if you have a forced air heating system; conversely, other people may have more of an issue during the summer with excess humidity. While the problems are different in nature, one thing remains the same: at some point during the year, your indoor humidity levels are not balanced. The good news is, the experts at Bartels Heating & Cooling can help you with the installation or service of a whole home humidifier or dehumidifier, depending on what your needs are.

When Would I Need a Dehumidifier?

Dehumidifiers remove the excess moisture from your indoor air. Signs that you may benefit from the use of a whole house dehumidifier include feeling clammy all the time, development of mold or mildew growth, or the consistent presence of fog on the inside of your windows. Excess moisture in your home can cause a range of problems, including the destruction of your property and even structural issues, if left long enough. A dehumidifier removes the excess moisture from your air before it can enter your HVAC’s air flow, making the air dryer and more comfortable.

What Does a Humidifier Do?

Homes can suffer from a lack of humidity just as easily as from too much humidity, particularly during the dry winter months. Just as a whole house dehumidifier removes the excess moisture, a humidifier adds much-needed moisture to your air ahead of the HVAC cycle. This extra moisture may be in the form of mist or steam. Why would anyone need extra moisture? Extremely dry conditions inside your home can lead to personal health issues and the splintering and damage of your home’s wood products, as well as temperature discomfort.
