One of the most common questions we hear from customers is whether their Dartmouth, NS home requires a humidifier or a dehumidifier. Most know that a whole-home system would benefit their homes, but they switch around which one they actually need. To make it a little easier, a humidifier adds moisture to the air and is, therefore, the best choice if your home is frequently dry and you feel the air is too crisp during the long, cold Nova Scotia winters. On the other hand, a dehumidifier removes moisture from the air and is generally a good choice if you feel that the air is too moist in your Dartmouth home and are worried about the growth of mold or mildew. Given the seasonal weather in Dartmouth, some people find a combination of humidifiers and dehumidifiers are good home solutions.
