The Importance of Balanced Humidity
On the hottest days of the year, balanced humidity—that is, relative humidity between 30%-50%—can make the air feel as much as 8-10°F cooler. This translates to a number of benefits, including the fact that it will cost you less to run your air conditioner since it won’t have to run for as long or as hard. Humidity control also helps prevent water damage to the materials of your home, including the growth of mold and mildew.
A whole-house dehumidifier is an appliance that can be integrated into your HVAC system in combination with your air conditioner. Your forced-air cooling system does have some dehumidifying properties, since the refrigerant coil draws moisture form the air at the same it draws heat. But this is not your cooling system’s intended purpose. A whole-house dehumidifier removes much more heat and moisture from the air in your HVAC system and your home. Plus, it does not interfere with the operation of your air conditioner.

Air that is too dry—that is, air that is less than 30% relative humidity—weakens your immune system and makes you more susceptible to getting sick. Also, dry air leads to cracking wood and peeling paint, as well as skin and throat irritation.
