Humidity Problems Are Cause for Concern

Aug 1, 2022 | Indoor Air Quality

Excess moisture is a concern in any home. For one, it creates an environment in which allergens and potentially toxic substances thrive. From that, a variety of health problems can emerge. Common responses include irritation to the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs as well as asthma attacks.*

In addition to health issues, excess moisture and humidity may be present if you experience the following issues in your home:

  • cupping wood floors
  • condensation on windows and walls
  • dripping vents and air returns
  • damp crawl space
  • musty odors
  • high energy bills

By keeping indoor humidity below 60% – ideally between 40% – 50% – fungus will be kept at bay and you reduce the risk of allergens and toxic substances. Whole home dehumidifiers bring balance to your indoor air quality, protect your home and promote better health.
