Signs You Need a Dehumidifier!

Foggy windows and doors aren’t the only way to tell you need to dehumidify your home. Indoor spaces with high humidity can pose a threat to your health and comfort in your home. Often times a dehumidifier can solve many of the problems you are having with humidity. Here are a few ways to tell when moisture isn’t leaving properly from the home, suggesting that you may need a dehumidifier.


  1. Mold growth. – Dark brown, black and green spots on walls and ceilings are evident cases of mold. With this kind of exposure to moisture, you are sure to see an increase and spread in mold growth that can become harmful to the health of family, friends and pets.
  2. Strange smells – If your home tends to smell muggy or musty, it may be time for a full on inspection. There’s a high chance that mildew and mold growth are the cause of this ongoing problem.
  3. Water staining – If your ceilings or floors have water stains, this is a sure sign of excessive moisture build up.
  4. Fog and condensation – Windows or doors that are dewy with moisture or water is a notification that your indoor area is too humid. This is the cause of blurred glass and a fog like presence over glass areas.

Even if your home temperature is comfortable, be sure to look for these major signs of severe moisture in your home. Contact a W.G. Speeks professional for information and installation of a dehumidifier in your home. Stay comfortable and live well.

Cut Back On Cooling Costs

Summer is approaching very quickly and the heat is already beginning to crank up. It is very important to make sure you’re keeping utility costs low and affordable. During warmer months, your AC can take a toll on your wallet, but it doesn’t have to. Here are a few tips for keeping your AC usage controlled.

1. Keep it Steady – Leave your AC set at one consistent temperature or make a gradual increase or decrease every few hours. A programmable thermostat is good for keeping temperatures consistent. Cutting your system off pushes your system work harder to get the inside temperature back down to a cool and comfortable degree.

2. Avoid heated appliances – We know people who stray away from frying foods, baking and blow drying their hair during the summer and they may be on to something. Cutting back on appliances that generate heat will keep from allowing temperatures to rise, in return, helping your house stay cool.

3. Place plants – Place plants in and around your home to help create shade and counter sunlight; thus creating a more cool temperature and less need to crank your AC.
4. Replace your AC unit – Replacing old worn out systems with newer, energy efficient systems can cut energy costs nearly in half. Keep the filter clean for proper air flow and you will be well on your way to a lighter bill.

If you are thinking of upgrading your AC unit or need an expert opinion call W.G. Speeks of Virginia today!
