In the tropical Southwest Florida environment too much humidity in the air causes discomfort and can damage home electronics, furniture, books and clothing. Excessive moisture also causes mold, sweating pipes, warping wood floors and peeling paint, not to mention musty odors. The answer to excess moisture in the home is a whole house dehumidifier.
Why Choose a Whole House Humidifier Over a Portable Unit?
Because your home's HVAC system works best as a unit, reducing humidity to just one part of the home with a plug-in dehumidifier is not the most effective way to control moisture. A whole house dehumidifier offers the following advantages:
- Automatic operation -works with your thermostat to monitor and control humidity levels.
- It's conveniently located away from your living space for quieter operation.
- Simple maintenance: no drain pans to empty, simply change the filter annually.
- Cleaner, healthier air - works with your air conditioner to automatically remove or dilute contaminates in the air.
