Household Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers in Riverside, CA

When discussing indoor air quality, the topic will always lead to discussion of airborne pollutants: dust, dirt, and other allergens that can get swept up in the air that you breathe in your home. However, that is definitely not where the conversation should end. Removing these pollutants from the air is definitely important, but so too is balancing humidity levels throughout your house. There are a couple of ways for you to do so. One option far outweighs the other, though.

We are an indoor air quality-certified contractor employing indoor air quality-certified technicians. If you want our expert opinion, skipping portable humidifiers and dehumidifiers and choosing a whole-house system instead is definitely the way to go. Stand-alone units simply cannot contend with their effectiveness and convenience. When you need humidifier or dehumidifier installation, repairs, maintenance, or replacement services in Riverside, CA, contact the team here at RKM Heating and Air Conditioning. We’ll help you to enjoy air of a high quality in your residence.

Signs of High Humidity

Just because the weather outside happens to be dry at any given time of the year does not mean that the air in your home may not still be too humid. There are a lot of factors that can affect humidity, including the overall performance of your home and the amount of people living therein. Here are a few signs that may indicate the need for a whole–house dehumidifier in Riverside, CA. We’ll make sure that you get the best dehumidifier for your individual needs.

  • Heavy, muggy air.
  • A mildew odor.
  • Signs of water damage.
  • Signs of wood rot.
  • The development of mold.

Remember, high humidity is not just problematic for your comfort. Damp conditions can create the perfect breeding ground for biological pollutants, including not just mold but viruses and bacteria as well. Sufficiently dehumidifying the air in your home is a must if you want to avoid such problems.

Signs of Low Humidity

There is no such thing as a single "best" humidifier, but there is one that is the best humidifier for your home, existing systems, and personal needs. We’ll help you to find it. Dry air can cause a lot of issues in a home, and you deserve better than the conditions that can create them. Stay on the lookout for any of the following signs of dry air.

  • Cracked, dry skin.
  • Frequent sore throats or bloody noses.
  • Splitting wood.
  • Increased occurrence of static shocks.
  • Chipping paint.
