“It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” This phrase rings true in many Cincinnati area homes during the summer months. The air can become thick and sticky, which makes it more difficult to function. If you’re seeking relief from the humidity and a way to boost the air quality in your home, one of the least expensive ways to accomplish this is by installing a dehumidifier.
The experts at Apollo Home will install the right dehumidifier to perfectly match your needs, lifestyle and home. The healthier and more efficient choice is to have a whole-home dehumidifier installed as part of your heating and cooling system.Schedule Today
A dehumidifier draws in air from the home. Inside the unit, this air flows over cooled coils and moisture from the air condenses upon these coils. The science behind this is similar to what happens to a glass of ice water in the summer, when water condenses on the outside of the glass. In the next step, the cool dry air is re-warmed and channeled back into the home.
Besides making your Cincinnati area home feel cooler, dehumidifiers improve indoor air quality by decreasing allergens. High humidity attracts mold growth and provides a happy environment for pests such as dust mites. Both mold and dust mites create allergic responses in many people. Even in the absence of allergies, some people find it harder to breathe in heavy, humid air but breathe easier when indoor air is dehumidified.
Moisture in the air also affects wood furnishings and wood features because wood swells in damp air. High indoor humidity is also to blame for stains and musty odors from mold and mildew throughout the home.Schedule Service
