Even if you can’t see or smell the tell-tale signs of dampness, A dehumidifier has many benefits….

  1. Decreases high spring and summer humidity levels in the home by drying the air
  2. Improves the air quality throughout the entire home
  3. Can prevent mould and mildew build-up beneath a crawl space and within the basement foundation
  4. Draws out moisture that can be imbedded within very small cracks in the foundation

  6. Less instances of dust mites, which are an allergy and asthmatic trigger
