A whole-house or basement dehumidifier can enable you to combat Ontario’s high-humidity levels at home. Here’s how a dehumidifier can improve your indoor air quality and help create a healthier home environment for you and your family this summer:

Reduce Moisture 

Excess indoor humidity increases the moisture in the air, which can encourage bacteria growth, mould and dust mites. In summer, dehumidifiers can effectively reduce moisture levels and improve air quality, which has many benefits for your household and home. 

Benefits of Using a Dehumidifier in Summer

A high-quality whole-home or portable dehumidifier can: 

  • Reduce the spread of airborne particles, pollen and pollutants that can trigger allergies and asthma. 
  • Minimize mould growth 
  • Prevent unpleasant musty indoor odour 
  • Encourage better sleep
  • Decrease the chance of water damage, rust and corrosion.

Manage the Level of Humidity 

High humidity may tempt you to set your air conditioner at a lower temperature than necessary. With a dehumidifier, you can easily control the moisture in your home so you can save money on summer utility bills and enjoy a healthier, more comfortable indoor environment.
