Why Many NJ Homeowners Install Dehumidifiers

Summer is around the corner, and we all know how humid it can get here in central New Jersey! Sometimes your air conditioner just doesn’t provide enough comfort. “Should I install a dehumidifier?” It’s a question many homeowners ask.

If you’ve been asking yourself that same question, now is the time to learn more information and determine whether a whole-house dehumidifier is the right solution for you.

Why Are People Installing Whole-House Dehumidifiers?

A dehumidifier can help you maximize your home’s energy efficiency and reduce your cooling bills! It saves energy in two ways:

  • First, when running alongside the air conditioner, it removes excess humidity effectively so you don’t find yourself continually turning the temperature down to get rid of that clammy feeling. By keeping your dehumidified home slightly warmer, you save on air conditioning bills without becoming uncomfortable.
  • Second, a dehumidifier can run without the air conditioner on mild days, promoting more moisture evaporation from your skin and helping you feel cooler without paying for air conditioning.

Signs You Need a Dehumidifier

Do you need a dehumidifier for your home? Some houses have more humid indoor air than others—it all depends several factors, including:

  • The number of people living in your home
  • Frequent showers
  • Frequent cooking
  • Better sealed home with airtight windows
  • And more

Additional signs you need a whole-house dehumidifier include:

Musty or Odd Odors

Excess humidity is one of the primary causes of indoor mold, mildew, and wood rot. These can produce odd odors that don’t just smell unpleasant; they can also degrade indoor air quality and cause respiratory problems. Clean up the mold or replace rotted wood and prevent the problem from happening again by installing a dehumidifier.

High Humidity

You can buy a hygrometer, an inexpensive humidity-reading device available at home improvement stores. Take the hygrometer into various rooms in your home and check out the readings. The EPA suggests that you maintain 30 to 50 percent relative humidity in your home for optimal comfort. If the hygrometer shows a reading higher than 50 percent, a dehumidifier might be necessary to achieve a more comfortable range.
