Although the saying “April showers bring May flowers” is known to all, it fails to mention that spring brings more than just blooms. With heightened levels of moisture and humidity in various regions due to April’s showery spells, your indoor air quality may be affected as well. It would thus be wise for you not to wait until conditions worsen. Yes, it’s only March, but preparing now for the madness early spring can bring is the best thing you can do before humidity levels may start becoming an issue.  

So, don’t wait until it’s too late! March is the perfect time to start planning for those April showers. Come along with Centerville Heating & Cooling and discover everything you need to know about whole-home dehumidifiers. This upcoming season, be prepared with knowledge from our experts! 


Wondering if a whole-home dehumidifier would be beneficial for your home? Look out for these telltale signs to help you make an informed decision: 

  1. An unpleasant, lingering odor fills the air. 
  1. Abnormal discoloration on your walls or ceilings could be mold or mildew.  
  1. Unappealing water spots have taken up residence on the walls, ceilings, or other sections of your home. 
  1. Condensation on walls, windows, and doors is a tell-tale sign of high humidity levels in your home. 
  1. If your basement is consistently damp, then this is a good indicator that the level of humidity is off balance.  


Let us first discuss its incredible health benefits. When moisture levels are too high inside our home, it provides an ideal environment for mold and mildew to thrive. A house dehumidifier is the perfect solution to protect your family from these pesky intruders! If your home is constantly struggling with high levels of humidity, then a whole-home humidifier should absolutely be at the top of your list. Not only does inadequate indoor air quality (IAQ) have detrimental effects on our physical health, but it also causes worsening respiratory issues for those who suffer from asthma and other related ailments. Fortunately, dehumidifiers can provide great relief to people in these situations by drastically reducing their symptoms. 

With a whole-home dehumidifier, you can also protect your home and treasured items from destruction. Uncontrolled air quality promotes the growth of damaging agents such as mold, mildew, and moisture damage which will cause a lot of harm to both your residence and possessions. Therefore, installing this simple device is not only an effective way to regulate humidity but also brings balance back into your house’s atmosphere for long-lasting peace! 

Ohio is not renowned for its humid climate. Nonetheless, your home’s indoor air quality can differ depending on several factors. For instance, if you own an older house that experiences high humidity in the warmer months, a whole-home dehumidifier could be the perfect solution! Your HVAC system mainly works to keep your living space cool; so, when a whole-home dehumidifier is installed and works in conjunction with your HVAC system, it will reduce additional strain from being placed on your HVAC system and potentially lead to lower energy bills – a win for both comfort and budget alike! 


Integrated into your HVAC system, whole-home dehumidifiers provide an effortless solution to air quality and humidity regulation. By doing all their work in the background, they make it possible for you to relax in a healthier environment with no extra maintenance from yourself! So, when it’s time for yearly safety checks on your HVAC system, these are easily checked off by the technician during regular inspections – again requiring zero additional effort from yourself.
