High humidity is a drag—literally. It will slow you down and leave you covered in sweat. Your asthma and allergies are more likely to flare up in highly humid environments. Bacteria and mold thrive in warm, damp surroundings. None of these scenarios are good.
A whole-house dehumidifier integrates with your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to zap the humidity from your home on those hot summer days. Whole-house dehumidifiers on the market today can quickly and cleanly eliminate the excess indoor humidity with minimal impact on your air conditioning equipment and utility bills.
Trust our humidity experts at Basnett Plumbing, Heating, AC & Electrical to choose and install the best-suited dehumidifier system for your home. Our family-owned company has served families in Westford, MA, and the MetroWest Boston area since 1987. We offer quality products and practical solutions to keep you comfortable in your home.
The ideal humidity level in your home is around 45 percent. Low humidity levels cause dry skin, nasal passage problems, and create breeding grounds for viruses like the flu. High humidity can make it difficult to breathe, especially if you suffer from a respiratory condition. Dust mites, in particular, thrive in areas where the humidity level is 50 percent or higher.
You risk the likelihood of mold when your indoor humidity level tops 50 percent. Too much moisture in the air can damage your wood furniture, causing the joints and frames to swell. There is nothing positive about the high humidity inside your home.
Whole-House Dehumidifiers Options
First, you need to consider the size and capacity of the model that will best serve your needs. A whole-house dehumidifier integrates with your HVAC system and draws moisture from your entire Massachusetts home. If you prefer, you can instead go with a single-room model that can be moved around easily to target extremely humid areas.
Whole-house dehumidifiers usually go in the basement where they can draw moisture through your home comfort system. Beyond just maximizing your comfort, this reduces the risk of damage and illness throughout the house. On the other hand, smaller models are less expensive and easy to maintain yourself—perfect if your humidity problem only occurs for small periods each year.
Whole-House Dehumidifier Installation
A ducted dehumidifier system offers the best indoor air quality since it controls the humidity level throughout your entire home. Our professionals can install these systems within your existing HVAC system or in brand new standalone ducts designed solely for air filtration and ventilation.
Smaller models, on the other hand, are less expensive and easier to maintain. With such a wide variety of systems available on the market, it just makes sense to work with a trusted HVAC company like Basnett. We never oversell our customers or steer you into purchasing a product.
Our humidity experts value your comfort and will offer the right system for your needs.
