Humidity plays an important role in our lives, as you may notice any of several problems in the home when there is not enough water vapor in the air. Too little moisture in the air you breathe every day can make you feel dry and uncomfortable, often leading to dried out nasal passages, dry skin, a scratchy throat, or chapped lips. But too much moisture is perhaps an even larger issue, making you feel hot and sticky, increasing moisture levels in the home, ruining the structure of the home, and creating an ideal condition for mold and mildew to thrive.
People generally say they feel most comfortable when humidity levels are around 30-50%. But in Florida, our climate often allows for levels that are well above this. That’s why many experts recommend dehumidifiers for homeowners in Deerfield Beach and the surrounding area, so that humidity levels are always right where they need to be in the home.
Can’t I Just Run My Air Conditioner Instead?
Air conditioners contain a similar system for dehumidification to a whole-home unit. As warm air blows over the cooling coil, condensation occurs and collects in an angled tray that leads to a drain pipe. However, using an air conditioner for dehumidification is an inefficient way to get the job done. You may feel uncomfortable when you cool your home to a level that allows for enough moisture control, and it’s pretty nonsensical to run the AC in the spring or fall. Besides, your bills are likely to suffer quite a bit if this is your only form of humidity regulation.
The Ultra-Aire dehumidifier line contains some extremely efficient units that provide exceptional dehumidification as well as some additional benefits. For example, you won’t have to worry about the feeling of stale indoor air from keeping your home sealed tight. Not only do these units remove moisture with consuming a ton of energy; they also protect your air quality with additional filtration and ventilation.
An Ultra-Aire Whole House Ventilating Dehumidifier offers precision moisture control with the added comfort of ventilation. Improperly ventilated homes contribute to stale air and an uncomfortable living space as well as allowing pollutants to recirculate through the air. With Ulta-Aire technology, you’ll also get fresh, filtered, conditioned air every time you run the unit.
