Dehumidifiers vs Air Ventilation Systems
Category : Uncategorized
Being greeted with a musty odor or thick, moist air when you walk into the basement is never a pleasant experience. If you experience any of these issues at any point during the year, this should be a cause for concern: You may have a basement mold problem!
Your first gut decision may be to run to the nearest home improvement store and purchase a dehumidifier, but at BGS Environmental Services, Inc. we strongly encourage homeowners to consider another option for the best indoor air quality.
Why Air Ventilation Systems Work Best
Our Quincy MA-based professional mold remediation company will recommend an air ventilation system over a traditional dehumidifier for many reasons. First, an air ventilation system will give homeowners a better return on investment. Dehumidifiers are energy guzzlers, whereas ventilation systems such as the one Humidex offers will only cost an averages of $2 a month.
Dehumidifiers may claim that they have a long lifetime, but when it comes to improving your indoor air quality, you’ll want to run the dehumidifier often, but this can result in a shorter product lifespan. With an air ventilation system, the products work efficiently and are maintenance free — homeowners don’t even need to empty a water tray.
The major benefit of an air ventilation system over a dehumidifier is that the former can cover more square footage than the latter. It’s not worth it when you need to buy a dehumidifier for every room in your home; only one air ventilation system will cover up to 4,000 square feet depending on the model size purchased.
