The high humidity in St. Louis can really slow you down, as anyone who lives anywhere from Godfrey to Festus knows. Besides the discomfort, did you know that exposure to dampness in homes as much as doubles the risk of asthma development in children through mold and mildew spores? You can help your air conditioner work more efficiently – and keep your family more comfortable with a whole house dehumidifier that removes moisture from the air inside your home.
BTW, here’s a way to calculate the humidity index that is pretty simple to use:
Humidifiers that are installed in your new or existing heating and cooling system can provide three times the moisture removing capacity of leading portable dehumidifiers – up to 90 pints or 11.25 gallons of moisture per day. And of course, without the messy tanks to clean.
The folks at Ricotta like the Aprilaire Model 1710 Whole-House Dehumidifier because it removes 50% more water per kilowatt hour than leading portable dehumidifiers. Plus it automatically senses moisture levels and maintains optimum humidity levels, running only when needed. Aprilaire 1710 also features truly automatic control, so there’s never a need to manually control the dehumidifier—just set it once and forget it! It switches automatically between whole-house dehumidification when central air-conditioning system is running, and localized dehumidification when your air-conditioning isn’t.
Keep your life comfortable, dry and your family healthy is part of the good life in St. Louis! Something we all strive for!
