Dehumidifiers in Aurora, IL and Surrounding Areas
Humidity is usually a big problem when temperatures are high in the summer. You will notice your windows getting foggy and your house will have a musty odor. Furthermore, your skin will feel clammy or sticky, which is an incredibly unpleasant feeling. With time, water damage may occur on the walls and ceiling of the house due to condensation. This damage may come in form of bubbling of paint and staining of the ceiling among other signs. That said, cooling the indoor space will be incredibly difficult, because most of the cooling power will be lost to condensing water vapor instead of cooling air effectively.
To ensure optimal home comfort during the hot months of the year, therefore, property owners need to install dehumidifiers to regulate humidity levels in their property.
Ideal Humidity Levels
The recommended relative humidity level is 40 to 50%. During the summer, however, the relative humidity of air can rise to as high as 70%. By installing dehumidifiers, property owners are able to bring the humidity level back to the preferred level. A dehumidifier is a device that has the same working principle as refrigeration or air conditioning systems.
The device draws air from the room and passes it through a series of evaporator coils for cooling. As the temperature reduces, the moisture-carrying capacity of air also reduces and condensation occurs. As air comes out the other end, it will have a much-lower relative humidity. Once the preferred humidity level has been achieved, the dehumidifier will turn off.
