According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “the key to mold control is moisture control. If mold is a problem in your house, clean up the mold and get rid of excess water or moisture. Maintaining the relative humidity between 30 – 60 percent will help control mold, dust mites, and cockroaches”.
Through the use of an Aprilaire whole house dehumidifier, homeowners can safely and effectively keep humidity between the EPA recommended levels of 30 – 60% throughout the whole house, without having to inefficiently overcool the space through the use of an air conditioner.
