What Are Dehumidifiers & What Do They Do?

A whole-home dehumidifier removes excess moisture from your home, creates a more comfortable environment, and helps improve indoor air quality. By maintaining a consistent humidity level within your home, it helps prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and other contaminants. Whole-home dehumidifiers can also enable your air conditioner to cool your home more efficiently.
