How High Humidity Affects You
Humidity levels are measured as a percentage called relative humidity. The higher the percentage, the more ambient moisture is in the air. When relative humidity rises above 50%, there’s too much moisture in the air to let the sweat evaporate off of your skin: your body’s primary natural means of cooling off. Your body temperature doesn’t go down and you feel hotter than you actually are. That forces your air conditioner to work harder than it should to help you feel comfortable. Furthermore, all that moisture means that mold and bacteria will grow more readily in your home, and can even damage your furnishing at high enough levels.
How a Dehumidifier Works
Dehumidifiers act in a manner similar to air conditioners, and indeed your air conditioner serves as a sort of dehumidifier by default, though it’s not built for such a purpose and high humidity levels can place it under undue strain. If you recall your high school science class, ambient moisture shifts into liquid form when the temperature drops. That why you get dew in the morning when temperatures are lowest. A dehumidifier simply lowers the temperature of the air, then collects the droplets of moisture in a pan for later removal. As a result, the air becomes drier, you feel more comfortable, and your air conditioner can do its job without undue strain. Not only does it improve your indoor air quality, but it lowers your monthly bills as well, and can help extend the life of your air conditioner to boot.
