Can a Dehumidifier Help You This Summer?

Monday, April 8th, 2019

We’ve heard it 1000 times: “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”. And as cliché as this phrase is, it’s true. Humidity levels during the summer can make it feel as though the temperature outside is much hotter than it actually is. This is because high moisture content in the air makes it much harder for our bodies to sweat, thus making it difficult to cool off. So when this happens, of course, the first thing we want to do is seek relief in the comfort of our homes. So what do you do if the inside of your home is humid as well?
