Did you know….dehumidification is a natural byproduct of air conditioning. However, 90% of what your air conditioner does is remove heat from the air and only 10% is moisture removal. Not only that, but your air conditioner is controlled by a thermostat, which measures temperature, not relative humidity. The result is a home that hits its temperature target, but can leave the home saturated with excess moisture, resulting in a home with a clammy, damp feeling.
A dehumidifier, on the other hand, is designed for moisture removal. Its only purpose is to remove the excess moisture in your home; moisture that can lead to mildew, mold, unpleasant odors, and their resulting health implications.
Unlike a portable dehumidifier, a whole-house dehumidifier removes this moisture from your entire home, not just a single room. And it’s simple to operate and maintain. It is controlled by a dehumidistat, which measures the amount of moisture in the air and controls that level to your desired setting. There are no tanks to continually empty and sanitize. It operates quietly in your equipment room, out of sight and out of mind.
All of this comfort and protection is easy to obtain. Simply contact your nearest Aprilaire dealer and ask how you, too, can enjoy the comfort and benefits of whole-house dehumidification.
