Dehumidify to Prevent Mold in Your Home

Did you know….Mold can have devastating affects on your home and your health.  In some extreme cases, entire houses have been condemned due to the grave health concerns that mold infestation can cause.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists moisture and mold prevention and control tips on their website.  One of the tips is "Keep indoor humidity low.  If possible, keep indoor humidity below 60 percent (ideally between 30 and 50 percent) relative humidity."
 

Actions that will help to reduce humidity
One of the actions the EPA suggests to reduce humidity in the home is the use of a dehumidifier.  Aprilaire would like to take this one step further – use a whole-house dehumidifier.  While a portable dehumidifier only removes moisture from the room it is in, an Aprilaire whole-house dehumidifier works in conjunction with your HVAC system to remove moisture from every room in your home. 

An Aprilaire dehumidifier is also easy to maintain with no tanks to lift and empty.  Simply clean the air filter every year and you’re good to go.  Call your Aprilaire dealer today and ask how you can benefit from having an Aprilaire dehumidifier installed in your home.

    We have an Aprilaire humidifier ( model # 600) on our furnace. We live in an area with very hard water so we change the filter at least twice a year. When we change the filter it is always light grey with black streaks. We had a technician tells us the black streaks are mold. Could this be possible? If so, what can we do to prevent mold?
