Affordable Dehumidifier Solutions in Blue Ash, OH
For those especially muggy months of summer, investing in a dehumidifier is the most effective way to lower humidity levels beyond what our A/C can do. This helps sustain optimal health and/or comfort when the A/C doesn’t do enough or humidity causes breathing or other problems. Additionally, dehumidifiers can remove musty smells lingering in a home and prevent mildew and mold development by removing the excess moisture from the air.
Experts say the relative level of humidity of a home should be maintained between 30 and 50 percent. If it becomes higher than 50 percent, it can make a home feel uncomfortable and make the air unhealthy. Not to mention this can cause your AC system problems and aggravate asthma problems and allergies. In any case, investing in a whole-house dehumidifier improves a home’s Indoor Air Quality, especially during the summer.

Top 3 Benefits of a Dehumidifier
If your humidity level is too high, like during the summer, your home is at risk for problems like mildew and mold and microbes. When humidity is too low, like during the summer, you become susceptible to static electricity, wood damage in the home and health issues like dry skin, and bloody noses, etc.
Controls moisture levels
Moisture can build up, causing mildew and mold to form, as well as warping and deterioration. Even furniture can be damaged from long-term humidity and high moisture. Ironically, homes that are well-sealed for energy efficiency can have some of the worst problems because of decreased air circulation. If you notice paint or wallpaper peeling, unusual stains, or a musty or moldy odor, you may need a dehumidifier to help prevent additional damage.

Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
If you are trying to determine if you have an air quality problem in your home, keep in mind that you can usually get an idea of the quality of air in a dwelling by looking closely at the health of everyone who resides within, those who have to breathe the air day in and day out.
Here's a quick guide to help homeowners determine if they have poor Indoor Air Quality:
MILDEW GROWTH AND MOLD
When a dwelling has higher than normal levels of humidity over any period of time, watch out, as these conditions are ideal for the growth and development of mold and mildew, and the likes. If the home has high humidity and lacks proper air circulation and filtration, it worsens if these things pop up. Mold and mildew can lead to serious health problems.
UNEVEN TEMPERATURE LEVELS
If your residence has uneven temperature levels or areas that are often too warm or too cold, this is another sign of an indoor air quality problem. Anytime an HVAC system fails to properly maintain humidity or temperature levels evenly throughout a dwelling, the home’s indoor air quality is compromised as a result as well and it should be taken care of before it blossoms into other problems that can be more expensive.
STRANGE ODORS OR UNUSUAL SMELLS
Sometimes, these types of odors emanate from mildew or mold growth, in which case they need to be addressed immediately. Other smells could indicate some kind of pest or rodent infestation, which should be taken care of as soon as possible as well. Other odors are clear indications of chemicals in the air, or decomposing materials, dirt, dust, or some kind of debris on your surfaces somewhere inside.
Generally speaking, allergy symptoms are the body’s response to dust, dirt, pollen, and other pollutants in a home’s air supply. Usually, tese types of particles tend to be more concentrated in enclosed areas like residential settings, as opposed to outdoor settings where the air is fresh and cleaned by nature. Because residential dwellings are so tightly insulated to keep the warm and cool air from escaping, allergy symptoms often become worse inside. If you are struggling with allergy symptoms, you should call us to talk about ways to improve your Indoor Air Quality.
