How do I know if I have high levels of moisture in my home or basement?

Abnormal levels of moisture in your home or basement are typically pretty easy to spot. Some telltale signs of moisture accumulation are as follows:

  1. Visible condensation on windows, mirrors, flooring, plumbing fixtures, or in the basement. This happens because these objects are often cooler than the air around them.
  2. Ceiling discoloration or crumbly. Make sure that you are using adequate lighting to properly assess all areas.
  3. Paint peeling. This is most often seen in areas such as bathrooms or laundry rooms where proper ventilation may not be present.
  4. A different smell. You may notice your home start to smell musty, moldy, or like mildew. If you smell this initially, but feel as though it has faded, go outside for a few minutes and then return to see if its still there.
  5. Surfaces in your home or basement start looking discolored or feel moist to the touch.

If you notice any of these, it is likely that you have high levels of moisture and need to dehumidify your space. To do so, call EcoSpect and we will use our expertise to help you!

What is the first step to dehumidifying my space?

Sealing any air leaks in your basement or crawl space should be the first thing you do when attempting to dehumidify the space. After you have dried out the area, it is essential that you do this step to ensure that moisture and chilly air will not enter the space again. This can include caulking windows and door frames, inspecting vents to the outside, etc.

Why do I need to dehumidify my basement?

In order to avoid issues like mold or mildew growth, property damage, and the attraction of water-based insects, dehumidifying your basement or crawl area is imperative. You will also be avoiding rotted wood in your home’s framework as another benefit. Additionally, if your basement is moist, cold air will rise and force your furnace to work harder, driving up your energy costs. Keeping your basement cleared of moisture ensures that you are providing a safe and healthy space for your family to live.

What is a dehumidification system?

A dehumidification system is a system put in place in homes to reduce the amount of humidity in the air by removing moisture. It is most typically found in basements or crawl spaces to help prevent mold growth and other moisture-related problems, keep areas dry and the items stored there dry, and to keep your home healthy.

Where does the moisture that a dehumidifier absorbs end up?

At EcoSpect, our dehumidifiers and dehumidifying systems are self-draining directly into the sump pump system of your home. Any moisture that is absorbed from the air will be dumped into the sump pump and pumped to outside your home. We will go over this in detail with you during the installation of your dehumidification system.

Can a dehumidification system help with allergies?

Yes! Drying out the air in your home with a dehumidification system certainly helps to deplete your allergy symptoms as it helps to prevent mold growth, mildew, and other build ups such as dust

How often do I need to run my dehumidification system?

You can run your dehumidification system as often as you like in order to maintain your healthy home. This may be based on your personal preference on levels of dryness, the size of the space that you are working with, the season, and more. When we come to assess your space for a system, we will certainly give you our professional recommendation and help you to navigate your new system!

Will a dehumidification system save me money on my energy bills?

Yes, oftentimes, a dehumidification does help you to save money on your energy bills as these systems reduce the work that needs to be done by your air conditioner or furnace. We find this because dry air is easier to heat or cool than air that holds moisture.

How often do I need to replace the filter in my dehumidifying system?

Depending on your space, this is something that we will discuss with you upon installation. Most times this falls anywhere between three to six months.

Do your dehumidifying systems come with a warranty?

Yes. Following each dehumidification system installation, you’ll also receive a full written warranty from our installer
