If you have lived here for a more than a year, you are already accustomed to the moisture and humidity that characterize Texas summers. If you are new, get ready.
High humidity in your home can make staying indoors uncomfortable. However, maintaining ideal humidity levels is more than just a matter of comfort. Excessive humidity can harm your property and potentially have an impact on the health of your family if it is not addressed. Luckily, dehumidifiers can be useful and help mitigate the issues caused by high humidity. Dehumidifiers maintain an ideal interior humidity level of between 30 and 50% by removing extra moisture from the air. These practical devices are available in a variety of designs, from compact portable units to whole-house ones that integrate with your HVAC system.
