Dehumidifiers remove water from the air. Many homeowners can benefit from a dehumidifier because it can reduce the risk of a buildup of dangerous mould and dust mites. Drier home environments are not as hospitable to allergens and mildew; as a result when you run a dehumidifier you are keeping a lot of the irritants found in indoor air from thriving. As a bonus you also reduce dust, so your house cleaning becomes easier. 

While you might be worried that having yet another electrical appliance in your home will add to your energy bills, a dehumidifier actually helps energy costs because your AC will become more efficient. This is why many HVAC experts sell and install dehumidifiers. If you aren’t sure whether you actually need a dehumidifier here are common signs you do: 

  • Your basement feels damp or shows signs of moisture 
  • You notice condensation on your walls and windows 
  • You notice a musty smell in some rooms or in general 
  • You’ve spotted signs of mould or mildew growth 

If you notice any of these signs speak to the team at Arseneau Home Comfort to find out more about dehumidifier installation.

Humidifier Installation

Humidifiers do the opposite of dehumidifiers. They actually add moisture to the air. While you might be thinking, “but you just said excess moisture is bad” not enough moisture can cause different issues in your home including the following health issues:   
  • Dry skin 
  • Itchy eyes 
  • Irritated nasal passages 
  • Bloody nose 
  • Itchy throat 
  • Aggravated allergy symptoms 
With humidity, finding the right balance is key. If you or family members seem to constantly complain about these issues, there’s a very good chance your home is too dry. You might also notice static electricity on clothing, in your hair, or when you touch something. A humidifier installation from Arseneau Home Comfort can help monitor humidity so you can maintain ideal humidity levels in your home and manage your symptoms.

CO Alarms

Carbon monoxide CO is often called the “silent killer” because it has no smell. As a result, it can be deadly as you have no warning your home’s CO levels are rising. Having a carbon monoxide detector provides protection from CO poisoning and even death as it sets off an alarm when levels become life-threatening. We can visit your home and make recommendations on ideal placement for CO alarms so you know your family will be safe from potential CO poisoning. 

Dehumidifiers, humidifiers, and carbon monoxide detectors are important tools in keeping your family safe and healthy. Contact us today in Halton Hills, Caledon, Brampton and surrounding areas for information on CO alarms, dehumidifiers, and humidifier installation.
