If you own or rent a house in South Jersey including Egg Harbor Township, Northfield, and surrounding areas of the NJ Shore region, humidity is an important concern. Humidity in your home can cause a great amount of discomfort during the scorching heat in the summer months. Even worse, humidity in your home can also cause serious health hazards because of the excessive moisture in the air.
Moisture allows mold and rot to grow and flourish, which poses significant health risks when you’re breathing in that air. Your air conditioning will work persistently to reduce your humidity to a more comfortable level, but there’s an additional step you can take to reduce the amount of humidity in the air: get a dehumidifier.
A dehumidifier removes the moisture from the air inside your home, eliminating the risk for mold to grow and increases indoor air quality. By dehumidifying the air, you make the conditions of your home feel cooler. Therefore, you can increase the temperature of your AC and save money.
Here are some additional benefits of installing a dehumidifier in your home:
- It will reduce odor, musty and rusty smells caused by mold and mildew.
- It helps you to breathe in clean air easier by eliminating the irritation of the respiratory system and skin.
- High humidity in a home makes your air conditioner work harder because it has the double function of cooling and removing moisture. This will increase your energy bill because the harder your air conditioner works the more energy it consumes.
