As we approach hotter days and shorter nights, balanced humidity becomes the key to maximize comfort. Properly maintaining moisture indoors is the best way to ensure not only that your home is comfortable but also the integrity of your property and family’s health.
High humidity is often associated with summer, but humidity fluctuates and can be a problem regardless of the season – window condensation is clear sign of too much moisture that typically happens in the winter. To avoid the problems associated with excess moisture the indoor humidity level should be maintained between 30-50%, as recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Why you Need a Dehumidifier?
Moisture is produced in every type of indoor situation, from washing hands, making a cup of coffee, to the dog drinking from their water bowl, even breathing adds moisture to the air. Too much moisture in the air can lead to a range of problems that can cause property damage and health concerns.
Fortunately, there is a simple solution to help maintain healthy humidity levels and prevent problems associated with excess moisture. A tankless dehumidifier works to continuously collect and drain excess moisture in the air – automatic draining so you don’t have the burden of emptying a reservoir tank daily. Maintaining consistent indoor humidity levels between 30-50% is the key to mold prevention.
Controlling moisture can make your home more energy-efficient, more comfortable, and prevent mold growth.
You can gauge the relative humidity of your property with a hygrometer, which can typically be purchased at hardware or home improvement stores.
A hygrometer is a device that measures the amount of humidity, or moisture content, indoors. Hygrometers can vary in design from basic hand-held devices to more detailed instruments, such as cooled mirror dew point hygrometers, which measure humidity using condensation temperature.
Hygrometers helps monitor the amount of moisture in your apartment or home.
No need to purchase a hygrometer, there is a simple ICE CUBE TEST you can use to determine the level of humidity in your apartment, home, basement and more.
