Signs You Need a Dehumidifier

Monday, April 22, 2019
Signs You Need a Dehumidifier

As the weather gets warmer it's also going to start getting a little more humid outside. You don't want to bring in all that moisture with you though. Humidity doesn't just make a home uncomfortable. It can also do some damage to your house over time.

Fortunately, you have the experts here at Day & Nite Plumbing and Heating on your side. We'll let you know what kinds of signs to look out for and when you need to take the plunge and buy that dehumidifier.

Stuffy Feeling

If you enter a room and it feels hot and stuffy, that's generally a sign of higher humidity. If you want all of the rooms of your home to be comfortable again, you'll want to purchase a dehumidifier the next chance you get.

Damaged Wood

Humidity doesn't just make you uncomfortable. It can actually cause damage to your home over time. You might notice wood that's begun to rot or flooring that's begun to warp. You might even see wet stains on walls and ceilings. This can get expensive as time goes on, so fixing a humidity problem in your home should be a priority.

Musty Smell

A musty smell can also be a sign that you have a humidity issue in your home. If your house just doesn't smell right during the warmer months, a dehumidifier can help.

Allergies Are Acting Up

If there's more moisture in your home due to higher humidity levels, that could encourage the growth and spread of some common allergens. If you or a family member has noticed that their allergies are acting up more than usual, high humidity might be the culprit. And if you don't normally suffer from allergies but you're beginning to have sinus issues, that could be a sign of humidity problems and mold growth.

Try an Air Quality Kit

You can buy an air quality kit, or bring in a pro that has one already, to see if there are contaminants in your home's air. If there's mold, mildew, and other contaminants, it's time to get a dehumidifier and clean up your air.

You Recently Had a Flood

Even if you don't notice the normal signs of high humidity, a dehumidifier might still be needed. Did you have a flood recently? Whether it was a burst pipe or a flooded basement from a rainstorm, that's a lot of excess moisture. Even once it's been cleaned up you'll want to make sure that you're being thorough by putting a dehumidifier to work as well. It will dry up excess humidity and help prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

Condensation on Windows

If you see some condensation on the inside of your windows, that's a sign of excess humidity as well. Moisture can gather on the areas around your windows, which is where mold and mildew can end up growing. A dehumidifier can keep your windows looking clean.
