Tighter energy-efficient homes: These homes actually trap moisture, odors, and VOC’s, creating an unhealthy, uncomfortable environment.

Homeowners today are more aware of indoor air quality: People are aware of the issues and the dangers of mold, allergens, etc.

People spend more time in their homes: Hence they breathe more, cook more, add more plants, pets, etc., all of which contribute to creating more moisture in a tighter home.

The Need for Dehumidification

Maintaining a proper humidity level is one of the most important steps in providing a comfortable and healthy home. Excess moisture in the home promotes harmful indoor air particles, including mold, bacteria, viruses, dust mites, allergic rhinitis and asthma. In addition, a home with excess moisture can be uncomfortable – regardless of the temperature.
