Britain is notorious for having sporadic weather, and in most cases wet and miserable, but as well as causing a general feeling of melancholy, it can in fact having health implications due to dampness, mould and even dust mites. Investing in a dehumidifier can in fact significantly improve your health and reduce the risk of minor illnesses such as coughs and colds. According to the department of health, humidity density should be between approximately 30-50% for optimum health within the home. A dehumidifier can help to regulate the humidity and remove any excess moisture within the air.

Whether we’re drying clothes indoors, cooking, cleaning or showing; excess moisture can be the cause of many minor problems, from dampness and condensation to mould growth and dust mites. All of which can make you or your family more susceptible to coughs and colds and worsen any respiratory problems you may have. By having the right ventilation or controlling humidity levels, you can begin to see a huge difference with the overall freshness of the air within your home, and soon you will see a significant change in health within the family.

If you’re unsure as to the humidity levels within your home, you can purchase a device known as a hygrometer for only a few pounds which will measure the rate of humidity and temperature within rooms. This will help to regulate the humidity levels with your dehumidifier, and not only help revitalise the air and make it cleaner and fresher but also help your home and contents, as excess moisture can damage windows, furniture and even clothes as well as posing a problem to your health.

So enjoy fresher air and cleaner breathing with a dehumidifier! It will begin to filter the air and reduce humidity levels by collecting moisture from the air. This will then reduce the environment needed for mould or dust mites to grow, thus preventing any potential problems developing. You may also notice cleaner, fresher air in rooms within your home when you begin using a dehumidifier.

Say goodbye to pesky allergies too! Many people suffer with mild coughing or more colds than usual or in some cases use an inhaler at night for asthma. You may not realise it, but you could well be suffering from a mould or dust allergy as a direct result of increased humidity levels. The humid air can cause an increase in dust mites which can often trigger allergies and symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and itchy and dry eyes. A dehumidifier is proven to reduce the risk of allergies and help you get a good night’s sleep!

How many times have you woken up with a feeling of a blocked nose or tickly cough? Excess moisture in the air can lead to irritations blocking the nasal passage or cause more frequent colds. A dehumidifier can significantly help relieve this by controlling the humidity within your home. Larger ones can control the air throughout your entire home, but you can also get smaller ones from just a 500ml capacity – these are perfect for small rooms or bathrooms by removing the excess moisture caused by things such as showering, hanging wet clothes by radiators to dry or central heating. Overall feel the difference with the cleaner, fresher air within your home, by investing in a dehumidifier for you and your family.

We found on NPT when we did a search on the internet and decided to go with them because of their good reviews. We recommend them to somebody looking for a hassle-free sale. We dealt with Sam who was excellent.
I found you guys online via a search engine. I rang a couple of companies but the reason I went with you was the initial sales call. Jim came across friendly and knowledgeable without too much of a sales pitch, I felt he was honest. When I moved to the progression team after accepting the offer, you were both great. I’ve felt like I’ve had a personal service, not a stranger on the phone for a big company. I would recommend National Property Trade to anyone who wants a straight forward sale and especially a big thanks to both you and Oliver.
Completed within 10 days. Money direct to bank account. No change of price and stuck to their oringal price, which was fair. Paid all fees and I don't have anything negative to say. Fast acting and Dan was superb from the start.
