It doesn’t matter what time of year it is – central North Carolina is a humid climate.

    And when that humidity gets into your home it tends to not only make the air uncomfortable but spurs the growth of mold, mildew, and other types of bacteria. Although air conditioners work to control humidity, they are not as effective as a dedicated dehumidifier.

    A dehumidifier’s sole purpose is to remove damp air in your house. It is highly effective at curbing the proliferation of mold and mildew growth and can be a great tool to help keep your environment clean and healthy.

    Types of Humidifiers:
    • Basement dehumidifiers are stationed in a basement and designed to prevent mold and mildew in that area of the home.
    • Whole-home dehumidifiers are professionally installed systems that dehumidify the entire home – not just a single room.
    • Heat pump dehumidifiers collect indoor air, pass it through a heat exchanger and expel it back into a home as warm, dry air.
    • Chemical absorbent dehumidifiers use a silica gel to expel damp air through an exterior vent, effectively removing the damp air from the home.
