Blog » Dry Out Summer Humidity with an Efficient Whole-House Dehumidifier

July 1, 2024

If there’s one thing that can be said about western New York, it’s that we get plenty of precipitation. Between lake-effect snow and summer showers, it can be difficult at best to stay on top of the humidity and excess moisture in your home. One option you may want to consider is a whole-house dehumidifier for your Rochester home that operates efficiently and effectively out of sight.

Dry Out Summer Humidity with an Efficient Whole-House Dehumidifier

Humidity can wreak havoc on your health and make you feel uncomfortable in many situations. Excess moisture can cause mold and mildew to grow, which is especially harmful to those with allergies, asthma, emphysema, and other respiratory conditions. A high-quality, efficient whole-house dehumidifier prevents the development of these microorganisms, making your home much more comfortable and healthier.

However, that doesn’t mean that you should simply choose any dehumidifier off the shelf and hope for the best. A whole-house dehumidifier needs to be sized to your home and its specific needs. This includes handling large quantities of water per hour while using a minimal amount of power in the process. It should also include effective filtration to remove the most harmful spores from your breathing air. This type of system is built to last and includes a full written warranty.

The whole-house dehumidifier will be installed in your basement or crawlspace. Why? As heat rises in your home, it draws cool air from the lower levels up, so over 40% of your first-floor air comes from the basement in a cycle called the stack effect. For this reason, we start dehumidifying your air at its source, in the lowest level of your home. This allows all the air above it to be dry and comfortable for you and your family.

Installing a whole-house dehumidifier in your Rochester home provides you with a more comfortable home environment, while improving air quality and ensuring that you can avoid potential pathogens like mold, bacteria, and similar microorganisms. If you need help figuring out whether a whole-house dehumidifier is right for you and your family, the experienced professionals at Storm Basement Waterproofing in Rochester specialize in summer humidity mitigation systems and are happy to help.
