Anyone who spends the summer here in the Midwest knows all about the high humidity here, which can make hot days feel even more unpleasant. To help prevent mold and mildew in the home and avoid dampness, many of us already have a dehumidifier running full time in the basement (or do you have more than one?). These workhorses often run 24/7 from early spring until well into the fall.
But if the humidity level in your entire home seems excessive, there may be a solution to your problem. Imagine how much relief you could feel with a dehumidifier that draws excess moisture out of the air in every room in your home, not just the basement.
Installing a Performance whole home dehumidifier from Carrier helps keep the indoor relative humidity at a constant level throughout the summer to increase your family’s comfort. You may even find you won’t have to keep adjusting the temperature on your thermostat to feel comfortable, so your air conditioning bills can stay under control.
High humidity in the home is not just a comfort issue. Excessive moisture in the air provides a breeding ground for not just mold and mildew, but for dust mites as well. Dust mites are known to create allergens that can make seasonal allergies even more unpleasant.
If you feel that controlling the humidity level in your basement is all that is needed in your home, there’s also a Carrier installed dehumidifier that works only in the lower level. Both sizes of the whole-home and the basement models have permanent, reusable filters for convenience and economy. And both can be incorporated into your existing units — even ones with zoning systems. Or, if space is an issue around your HVAC system, the Carrier Performance whole-home humidifier is self-contained so it can work independently of the rest of the system.
The 1095 model can remove nearly 12 gallons of water per day from the air, while the more compact 1070 model can remove up to 8.75 gallons per day. These durable and hard-working dehumidifiers have user-friendly controls, almost silent operation, and are backed by a five year parts limited warranty. Give Star Heating and Cooling a call if you live in the Marion County or Hamilton County area in Indiana, and we would be happy to price the whole home dehumidifier that is best suited to your needs.
