Controlling the humidity levels in your home during the winter months greatly influences the comfort of your entire house. Basements are often a problem area during the colder months of the year, due to decreased exposure to heat and sunlight from outside. This can cause basements to trap unwanted moisture inside, becoming a breeding ground for mold and mildew. For many parts of the country, using a dehumidifier is a great solution to balance your indoor humidity levels to create a healthy and comfortable environment within your home. When you run a dehumidifier during the winter months, here are a few things you need to know:
- If you are using a dehumidifier that has an electric motor in rooms that are below 60 degrees (like a basement), use caution. Since a dehumidifier attracts moisture, the coils can possibly freeze if the weather gets too cold. Keep an eye on your device when the temperatures start plummeting to avoid this.
- If you suffer from allergies during the winter months a dehumidifier will help with your indoor allergy symptoms. Many of the most common allergens thrive in humid environments. A dehumidifier can regulate humidity throughout the home, helping to eliminate many indoor allergy triggers.
- Do you know what the humidity levels are in your home” The easiest way to do so is to use a hygrometer. A hygrometer will let you know the relative humidity of any area at a glance. Keep in mind, your home will feel most comfortable at humidity levels between 45 and 55%.
