"As many as 10 percent of the general population and 90 percent of people with allergic asthma are sensitive to dust mites. Recent studies in the United States suggest that at least 45 percent of young people with asthma are allergic to dust mites."

A Whole-Home Dehumidifier Can Help
Daily activities, such as cooking, cleaning and showering can add as much as 25 pounds of moisture to your home.
Your air conditioner is designed to control temperature, not humidity. You need humidity control to maintain comfortable, healthy conditions in your home.
A whole-home dehumidifier is installed as part of your home's heating and cooling system. It works in conjunction with your air conditioner, or independently as needed, to remove the ideal amount of moisture to solve the above problems. But not so much that your home becomes too dry.
This is done throughout your entire home, using a single, out-of-the-way source—unlike a portable dehumidifier.
Other advantages of a whole-home dehumidifier include:
- Automatic humidity sensing: allows for better monitoring and control of humidity
- Convenient, quiet operation: away from your living space
- Low maintenance dehumidifier: simple annual filter cleaning
- Fresh air ventilation: automatically removes or dilutes polluted air
