What is a Dehumidifier?
A dehumidifier is a device designed to remove humidity from the air. It is kind of like a heater and air conditioner combined, and is installed in the ductwork of your home. As air enters the dehumidifier, it is cooled down to the dew point. This causes the moisture in the air to condense on the dehumidifier coil, where it is then drained out of the system. After the air rids itself of moisture, it is warmed back up to room temperature and released into the ductwork. In this way, the dehumidifier allows you to maintain the correct humidity level without compromising your climate control.
Why You Need a Dehumidifier
High humidity is not something you really want in your home, especially not for a long period of time. For one thing, it makes things very uncomfortable. The higher the moisture level in the air, the higher the evaporation point of liquids. This includes sweat, and the longer your sweat takes to evaporate the harder it is for your body to maintain a comfortable temperature. This is why humid days always seem warmer than non–humid ones.
High humidity also promotes mold growth on the surfaces of your home, including in the walls. Moisture and darkness are the two necessary factors for a mold colony. Many kinds of mold are harmless, if disgusting. However, there are a number of types that can actually be quite dangerous if you inhale them. This is part of the reason why we recommend dehumidifiers to homeowners so strongly. For your own health and comfort, it is a good idea to invest in a whole–house dehumidifier.
We Install and Service Dehumidifiers Throughout The Area
Installing a whole house dehumidifier is a process that should only be conducted by a professional. This is because it involves accessing both the ducts and the home’s electrical grid, neither of which should be touched by someone without specialized training. For that reason, you should trust us to install your dehumidifier for you. We also offer repair and maintenance services, for those times when your dehumidifier acts up. Keeping a working dehumidifier in your home is a key part of staying healthy and comfortable. Don’t go another day with your own home feeling like a swamp. Call Air Conditioning Experts today, and we’ll get started on dehumidifying your home.
