Living in the tropics is an amazing experience, but there are some considerations the rest of the world isn’t familiar with. As part of the cooling process, your air conditioner extracts moisture from the air, but if you’re like many Caymanians, you may choose to supplement your air conditioner with a dehumidifier to enjoy a more comfortable relative humidity. In some cases, a dehumidifier can help you save money on your air conditioning costs by boosting the performance of your AC system.

5 Ways to Know You Need a Dehumidifier in the Cayman

- All of your towels are pre-moistened
- You stick to every surface you sit on
- You can’t remember what crisp, fresh sheets feel like
- You’ve considered framing the decorative mold spots on your walls
- You’re thinking of getting “wet floor” signs permanently installed

Breathe Better in the Cayman Islands

Breathe Better in the Cayman Islands If you suffer from allergies or respiratory challenges, you might find that an efficient dehumidifier is a good choice to help you breathe better at home. Improving the air quality in your home is a great way to avoid uncomfortable flare-ups of allergies, COPD, and asthma. The EPA and the American Lung Association recommend that indoor humidity should be reduced to 30-60% to decrease mold growth and prevent dust mites from propagating. By eliminating these allergen factors, you can breathe better and feel more comfortable in your home on this island paradise.

At EcoSmart Cooling, we can help you find the right-sized dehumidifier for your home to work with your current air conditioning system or as a separate, stand-alone option.
