Consider a Dehumidifier This Summer!

We’ve all heard the saying — “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity!” And truly the humidity can make things pretty bad. See, summers around here can get awfully muggy, sticky, and sweaty, making for some pretty uncomfortable conditions. Fortunately, though, there is something we can do about it. That’s right: we’re talking about dehumidifiers!

There are plenty of reasons to consider installing a whole-house dehumidifier in your home, and below, we have outlined some of them for you. All you need to do is keep reading to find out more, and of course, remember to call our team when you need Statesville HVAC services.

Let’s get started!

How a Dehumidifier Can Help You

Humidity levels paired with heat make you feel much warmer because your body cannot evaporate sweat like it’s supposed to. But a humidifier helps you to …

  • Get comfortable – Removing moisture from the air helps you to feel as though the room has cooled down.
  • Save money – You won’t have to turn down the temperature on the thermostat so much if you have a good dehumidifier in place.
  • Avoid mold – Mold and mildew thrive in moist environments, but a dehumidifier may help to reduce their growth and spread.
  • Protect your home – You can protect your home from water damage that sometimes occurs over time in a particularly humid environment.

You Need a Whole-House Solution

A whole-house dehumidifier system is simply the better choice if you are trying to save money, stay comfortable, and help your home. Whole-home dehumidifiers are installed in the ductwork in order to treat the entirety of your indoor air.

Sure, there are plenty of portable dehumidifiers that you can find at your local pharmacy or home goods store, but these systems simply cannot achieve the same results as a whole-house system. Whole-house systems work much like a standard air conditioning system, removing moisture from your indoor air as they operate. However, these systems get the job done much more efficiently and effectively, keeping you cool and comfortable all summer long!

Call in a Professional

Of course, if you are interested in having a dehumidifier installed in your home, your best bet is to call in a professional HVAC technician sooner than later. Only a professional has the training, tools, and experience to match you with an appropriate system and ensure that it is installed correctly. Professional installation is an absolute must if you are looking to get the most bang for your buck!

Remember, there are going to be plenty of amateurs out there willing to provide these services, but sometimes an attempt to save money can end up costing you much more in the long run. That’s why it is best to call in a professional and get the job done right the first time around. Trust us, when it comes to your comfort, you don’t want to take any risks!
