Dehumidifying your home may seem like an impossible task in a place where we are known for our humid climate. Here at AC Masters we believe that you should take the extra precaution in investing in a Whole House Dehumidifier. There are so many great benefits as to why you should have one. Here are just a few:
- Mold Prevention
Mold is a fungus that causes natural materials to breakdown. Mold can be extremely dangerous in large quantities, putting your health at risk. Symptoms of mold allergies can include: skin rashes, sneezing, eye and throat irritation, itchy throat and coughing. Mold can also trigger asthma attacks. A dehumidifier can remove the moisture in the air that is helping the mold thrive in the environment. If you suffer from asthma or allergies AC Masters strongly suggests investing in a dehumidifier for your home.
- Helps Eliminate Dust Mites
Household dust mites are a common cause for allergies and asthma symptoms. They thrive in humid, warm climates (that is the entire state of Florida!) Having a dehumidifier in your home will help keep the humidity in your home at a optimal level and eliminating the environment that the mites thrive in.
- Protects Your Home
Living in sunny Florida can be beautiful, especially being in the coastal town of Jacksonville. What is not beautiful is that over time moisture can affect the wood in your home. Causing them to warp, crack, or even split. Mold can start to grow in the crevices. Metal fittings may start to rust. All of these are a result of having too much moisture in your home. Having a home dehumidifier in your home can prevent your home from having these structural issues as well as creating a healthy environment for your family.

- Moist or Wet Stains present on Walls or Ceiling
