Want to avoid that basement smell and other problems associated with high humidity?
50 percent of the air in your home comes up from your basement or crawl space. In the spring and summer when the relative humidity can be above 60% in these areas for extended periods of time, mildew, mold and bacteria can begin to grow. The air coming up from your basement and into your main living area can contain these various allergens and create a musty odor. If you are currently using a portable dehumidifier, you may want to consider investing in a high capacity, high efficiency dehumidifier that is a more efficient and cost effect way of getting rid of excessive humidity in your house.
Our dehumidifiers will remove up to 20 pints more water per day than a portable dehumidifier that is running all day. The leading portable dehumidifier will cycle 175.2 times per day, ours will cycle only 16.8 times a day.
How humidity affects your home:
- Musty odors caused by mold growth
- Humidity creates an environment for pests (including termites) and dust mites to grow
- Wood floors, joists, subfloors, insulation, and electrical systems can all be damaged by excess humidity
