When you live in Boca Raton, Florida, you expect high humidity all year round. That doesn’t mean you have to welcome the excess moisture inside your home, though. From installing a dehumidifier to improving ventilation, here’s how to moderate humidity in your home this fall.
Install a Whole-Home Dehumidifier
If the humidity levels in your home are off the charts, your HVAC system may need a little help keeping airborne moisture in check. Portable dehumidifiers only help in select areas of your home. But a Performance Whole-Home Dehumidifier DEHXX can moderate moisture levels throughout it.
A device like this also works seamlessly with your HVAC system. That means this HVAC add-on can improve the performance of your heating and cooling system while controlling humidity levels.
Check the Dryer Vents
Did you know that some of your daily chores and household tasks can contribute to high humidity levels? If your dryer or stove vents don’t effectively push the humid air outside, it can easily build up in your home every time you do a load of laundry or cook dinner. If you aren’t sure how effective your vents are, contact a professional for an inspection.
Laundry room and kitchen vents aren’t the only ventilation hotspots that you need to worry about. If stale, humid air tends to accumulate in certain parts of your home, you may need to improve the ventilation throughout it.
The most efficient way to do this is to talk with our team about installing a ventilator that works with your HVAC system. All models flush out old, damp air while drawing in fresh air around the clock. Some models have energy-recovery capabilities to keep the process as energy-efficient as possible.
