Improved Indoor Air Quality with Humidity Control

High humidity makes a home less comfortable. It also sets the stage for mold, leads to mustiness and other odors, and can negatively affect your health in other ways. While your air conditioner does remove some moisture, it generally cannot keep up with the higher humidity levels that Delaware and Pennsylvania experience during summer. Gold Star recommends installing a whole home dehumidifier, and we offer both Aprilaire and Ultra-Aire models, which are the best products on the market.

These units are integrated into your existing central air conditioning system. You can then set your desired relative humidity level via your thermostat, and your dehumidifier will adjust the levels automatically. Your air conditioner will not have to work as hard, which will save you money, and you will experience improved indoor air quality and more comfortable living spaces.

Why Install a Whole Home Dehumidifier

Relative humidity is a measure of how much water vapor is in the air within the context of the current temperature. You are less comfortable at a given temperature when the humidity level is higher. Having a whole home dehumidifier allows you to operate your air conditioner at a higher temperature. Your AC also will not have to work as hard, which will reduce both your short- and long-term cooling costs. An ideal humidity level also makes it easier to breathe and maintain optimal indoor air quality.

Lasting Comfort

When a dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air, you will feel cooler. When an AC struggles to remove that moisture, your home will feel warmer, less comfortable, and even muggy and sticky.

Energy Savings

Although a whole home dehumidifier requires electricity to run, it will actually reduce the overall costs associated with cooling your home. Your AC will run more efficiently and not need to run as often.

Happy and Healthy Families

Excess moisture in a home fosters an environment that is ideal for mold and dust mites. Such contamination is particularly bothersome to people with allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions. A whole home dehumidifier makes it easier to control dust in a home and makes it much more difficult for bacteria, mold spores, dust mites, and so forth to spread.

Better for Your Home

Excess moisture is a consideration for your home as well. Over time, it can damage wood floors, furniture, musical instruments, electronics, photos, and books. A dehumidifier is an investment that protects the structure of your home and your possessions.

Other Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air pollution is a pressing concern that the EPA calls a top health risk for Americans, and a dehumidifier is not the only way to improve air quality in your home. Gold Star also installs whole home air purifiers and humidifiers and offers duct cleaning and seasonal HVAC maintenance services.

UVC Air Purification

Gold Star recommends active air purification over traditional air filtration. Air purification via ultraviolet light improves indoor air quality by eliminating bacteria, viruses, mold spores, dust mites, pollen, and much more. This is the reason hospitals use UV light for disinfection. The Series3 model that we offer can provide these benefits by integrating into your existing cooling and heating system.

Enhanced Air Filtration

A common mistake homeowners make is not replacing their air filter often enough. A dirty filter increases pressure in your system, which results in your AC working harder and your costs going up. At the very least, you should replace your filter every three months, but we recommend visually inspecting your filter each month and replacing it as soon as you can see the dust accumulation.

Whole Home Humidifiers

The air is drier in winter, and in order to heat your home, the system must continue to draw that drier air into the home, which lowers the indoor humidity level. This can lead to irritation of the eyes, nose, mouth, lungs, skin, and so forth and make your family more prone to illnesses. A whole home humidifier will help you avoid that irritation while also making your home more comfortable and cheaper to heat.

Air Scrubbers

Air scrubber technology was originally innovated for use aboard the International Space Station. Designed to mimic the molecular scrubbing that occurs in nature, this technology has since been adapted for residential applications. Integrated into your existing HVAC system, an air scrubber will be able to remove air pollution, volatile organic compounds, surface contaminants, and much more.

Discover the Benefits of a Whole Home Dehumidifier

During summer, you not only need to contend with high temperatures but high humidity levels. While your air conditioner can remove some of the moisture, it cannot remove enough and will work harder in the process. A whole home dehumidifier is an investment that will pay for itself over time and make your home a more comfortable and healthier living environment.
