We all know how uncomfortable excess humidity can be, but the problems from humidity don’t stop there. Too much moisture in the air can lead to the development of mold and mildew, rotted wood, and added stress for your air conditioning system. Individual room dehumidifiers can help somewhat, but to fully address a moisture problem, your best choice is to use a whole house dehumidifier. One of the reasons for this is that a whole home dehumidifier is installed as part of your HVAC system. This means that all the air in your home is dehumidified, not just some of it. Additionally, you can set the level of humidity you want throughout your home easily right on your thermostat, because it will be equipped with a humidistat.

You know when there’s too much humidity in the air because you can feel it. Humidity is measured in percentages, and according the to the EPA, healthy humidity ranges from 30%—55%; any less than 30% means there’s too little humidity in the air, and over 55% means there’s too much. When our experts install your whole house dehumidifier, you’ll be able to set your humidistat so that you can maintain a comfortable humidity range around the clock. We can also make sure your existing dehumidifier works as needed with annual maintenance or a repair appointment.
Whole house dehumidifiers remove your excess humidity by taking advantage of the principle of condensation. We’ve all seen condensation form on the outside of a cold bottle or can; a similar process happens inside your dehumidifier. The dehumidifier works by drawing the warm, moist air into it with a fan. Once inside the dehumidifier cabinet, this air is pulled over chilled coils; when the warm air meets the cool coils, condensation is formed. The condensation is captured in the dehumidifier and then drained from your dehumidifier and home via a condensate array. The more your home’s air passes through the dehumidifier, the dryer and more comfortable it becomes. Whole house dehumidifiers remove the excess moisture from your air before the air can circulate into your AC, lightening the workload for your air conditioner.
