Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night with a serious case of night sweats? One cause might be from over-indulging in libations. But if you’re sure an overworked liver isn’t the cause to your clammy skin, it’s probably because you need a whole house dehumidifier. When the air is cold in your home, but the humidity is high, it will cause sticky skin, making for an uncomfortable situation day or night. In this blog I want to educate you on why your air conditioner isn’t enough to keep the air dry in your home.
Air conditioners do remove some humidity from the air in your home. However, it’s just a byproduct of the A/C system and isn’t as effective as it needs to be. I’ve seen a lot of success from installing whole house dehumidifiers from Aprilaire. Whole house dehumidifiers from Aprilaire address the following indoor air quality concerns:
- Stuffy air
- Sticky or sweaty floors or other surfaces in your home
- Mold and mildew growth
- Musty odors
- Condensation on water pipes
- Wet stains on walls or ceilings
Whole home dehumidifiers are also helpful at keeping your home comfortable when temperatures start to drop outside, but the air inside is still moist. During the spring and fall, you may not be running your air conditioner yet, but moisture is in the air, making your home uncomfortable. You may also experience savings from installing a dehumidifier, as you’ll not be compelled to run your cooling system just to get rid of the dampness in the air.
