For the more than 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies each year and the 25 million Americans who are afflicted with asthma, elevated levels of humidity are more than just a nuisance. When indoor moisture levels exceed the recommended range of 30 to 50 percent, problems like discomfort and property damage can quickly escalate to serious health risks.
It’s common knowledge that excess moisture can be unpleasant. The phrase “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity” rings true in many Maryland homes, especially during hot and muggy days in the summer. The air can become thick and sticky, with water-related damage to wood furnishings or musty smells making themselves known. If you’re seeking relief from the humidity and a way to boost the indoor air quality (IAQ) of your home, an easy and relatively inexpensive way to accomplish this is to install a dehumidifier.
Besides the inconvenience and discomfort of the moisture itself, mold and dust mites thrive in environments with high humidity. These organisms can present particularly difficult respiratory challenges for allergy and asthma sufferers. If the air in your home is especially humid, or if you have noticed you have trouble breathing or functioning when humidity levels are elevated, a dehumidifier may be the solution you need for your IAQ issues.

Because summers in Crofton, Maryland can be extremely humid, we recommend the installation of a home dehumidifier system to your home’s HVAC system. Some of the benefits include:
Let’s face it, nobody is comfortable when the humidity levels spike. You feel sticky and clammy, and your body’s natural cooling process is disrupted. A whole-home dehumidifier will keep humidity levels at a comfortable range for you and your family.
Excess humidity can also damage walls, floors and furniture and even cause paint to bubble and peel off. Running a dehumidifier can limit the condensation that causes this damage.
When humidity levels soar, so do your electric bills. Your air conditioner must work harder to properly cool your home, which means it runs for longer and endures more wear and tear.
Humidity levels in the recommended range of 30-50% create a healthier indoor environment. A dehumidifier can remove pollution, musty smells and prevent mold growth. High humidity creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew growth, which can damage your home and cause negative health effects, especially for those with allergies, asthma or other respiratory illnesses.
