If you’ve never owned a dehumidifier you might not really know why you should have one, let alone what the benefits are. Essentially, a whole house dehumidifier is a low maintenance way to keep your home healthier, dry, and more comfortable to live in. High humidity in the Baltimore area can be problematic in areas of the home, such as crawl spaces, attics and basements.
Humidity also tends to rise upwards towards the living spaces of your home. In turn, you might feel hot or sticky inside. Humidity can even cause problems like bugs, mold, and mildew. In some cases, people also develop allergy and asthmatic symptoms as well.

In the most simplest terms, a dehumidifier is a lot like a vacuum. It sucks out air from one room at one part of the home and then blows it back out again. The moisture inside that room or inside the house is collected using a collection tank that drips through the unit. You will eventually need to empty it from time to time as it fills up with moisture droplets.
Dehumidifiers work one of two ways. One way is by refrigeration, or cooling the air in order to remove the humid moisture in the air. the second way is through absorption/adsorption. This is when moisture in the air is absorbed INTO or adsorbed ONTO a certain type of drying material in which then its removed.
When you count on All Seasons to install your dehumidifier, we will ensure you get the perfect unit for your needs.
When you have a house that is really humid, the air conditioner has to work extra hard in order to cool the house and remove the moisture. This can really raise your energy bills and it means you will have to replace or repair your AC unit much sooner than you probably anticipated!
Many people assume that since a dehumidifier is used for humidity, that in the winter you don’t need it because there isn’t any or much humidity in the air when its cold. However, this is not always the case. One of the biggest things to know about humidity is that, yes, its relative to heat. But, moisture is not. Any room can have moisture in it, your basement for example, is a playground for moisture. Moisture can then lead to ground water seeping through the walls and the flooring, which can lead to mildew and mold and all those bad smells and experiences that people have with these two growth pathogens.
