The level of humidity in your home increases every time you cook, bathe, shower, clean, or even breathe. Humidity is the concentration of water vapor present in the air. When there is high indoor humidity, there is too much moisture in the air. Excess moisture not only causes discomfort but can quickly lead to property damage and health hazards. The recommended relative humidity for indoor environments is from 30-60%.
What is a Dehumidifier?
Dehumidifiers are designed to remove moisture from the air. A dehumidification system works by pulling in humid, damp air and cooling the air to its dew point allowing the water vapor to condense, forming water. Using a dehumidifier to help control the moisture indoors will help prevent mold growth, protect buildings and furnishings.
A dehumidification system works to reduce humidity levels and create a healthier, more comfortable apartment.
Why Dew Point Matters
Dew point is the temperature that humidity in the air condenses to form water.
Measured in degrees dew point is an absolute measurement of the amount of moisture or humidity in the air. Our bodies use sweating as an internal cooling system, as we sweat heat is removed from the body. Typically, it’s not the heat that makes you hot, but the amount of moisture in the air. When temperatures are high enough to cause us to sweat but the air is close to the dew point, or fully saturated, the sweat we produce cannot evaporate fast enough to cool us down. Maintaining a consistent dewpoint indoors, no higher than 62° F will increase energy efficiency, prevent mold, protect property, and increase comfort.1
