When do you know if you need a dehumidifier for your home?

Here’s some great easy tips from ENERGY STAR on clear signs when you need a dehumidifier.

A dehumidifier is used to remove excess moisture from the air. Some of the most common indications that you may need a dehumidifier are:

  • Wet stains on walls and ceilings.
  • Stuffy feeling in a room.
  • Rotting wood.
  • Condensation on windows.
  • Musty smells.
  • Allergies. Iif the air in your home is too moist, it will encourage the growth of bacteria and mold, which are common allergens.
