Benefits of De’Longhi dehumidifiers

If you have high levels of humidity inside your home, you may need the help of a dehumidifier. Ricel from De’Longhi explains the benefits of De’Longhi dehumidifiers, and how they can help you create a healthy home environment.

What does a dehumidifier do?

The ideal moisture level in your home is up to 60 percent. High humidity levels could result in health problems for your family, as well as having long-term negative effects on your home. The best way to reduce humidity levels is by using a dehumidifier. Ricel explains that a De’Longhi dehumidifier works “much like an air conditioner. It draws the moist air in with a fan and turns it into a dry, healthy air.”

Humidity effects on the home

One of the clearest signs of high humidity levels in your home is if you have excess moisture and condensation on your windows. Other signs are that you may have water damage on floors and your furnishings. Mould and mildew on your walls and ceilings can also be a sign that you have a humidity problem.

Humidity health effects on your family

Ricel points out that “high levels of humidity at home can cause breathing difficulties, especially for older and younger family members”. High humidity can also result in skin allergies and rashes. It also allows dust mites to flourish throughout your home, which can be a problem for people with allergies.
