Indoor Air Quality
Whole-Home Dehumidifier Installation
Too much moisture in the air can affect your home and your health in many ways. Excess moisture can lead to mold growth which can be highly toxic to you and your family. That’s why it’s important to address humidity levels in your home before it becomes a real problem. We can help you achieve the right balance with a whole-home dehumidifier that works in tandem with your existing HVAC system.
Do I Need a Whole-House Dehumidifier?
It's not always easy to tell. In many parts of the country, cold and damp or warm and humid climates can cause potentially damaging excess humidity. While some homeowners choose to run their AC to control dampness, that's not your AC's primary purpose—and there are more effective options available to you. In fact, extracting excess moisture from the air inside your home with an HVAC dehumidifier means your air conditioner can function more efficiently because you won’t need to use it as much.
Applied to your home's HVAC system and ductwork, a whole-home dehumidifier system effectively pulls water vapor out of the air before the air is recycled back into your conditioned living space. It may be a good option for your home if you have any of the following warning signs even when your AC is running:
- Sticky or sweaty floors
- Mold or mildew anywhere in your home
- Musty odors
- Condensation on water pipes
- Clammy feeling on your skin
In addition to helping keep you and your family comfortable and protect your HVAC equipment, having a home dehumidifier system can preserve some of your possessions. Any furniture, books or other items made from wood or paper can be damaged if the humidity in your home is too high. Because these materials absorb moisture, they can warp or begin to rot under humid conditions. Installing a dehumidifier can give you peace of mind knowing that the environment inside your house will be kept at optimal levels.
