3 Reasons to Add a Dehumidifier to Your HVAC System This Summer
Tuesday, July 28, 2015
HVAC Systems

Need a little boost to your heating and air conditioning system this summer?

We tend to take our heating and air conditioning systems for granted, but they work hard for us. How can you make their work a little easier and your house a little more comfortable? Have you ever thought about trying a dehumidifier? Here are 3 reasons you might want to consider adding one to your HVAC system this summer:

Reason #1: Use Less Energy

Humid air takes longer to cool than dryer air, which is why a dehumidifier will help your air conditioning system be more energy efficient. Humid air also feels more uncomfortable than drier air, so even air-conditioned air won’t feel as cool if the humidity level is high. With less humidity, you need less air conditioning to feel comfortable.

Reason #2: Reduce Mold and Mildew

Mold and mildew thrive in warm, moist environments. Even with air conditioning, your home can still be humid enough to create an ideal place for mold to take hold and grow. Mold is not only ugly and damaging; it can also pose very serious health risks to those exposed to it. Reducing the humidity with a dehumidifier can reduce the chances you’ll get mold.

Reason #3: Lower Rate of Allergies

Allergens thrive in humidity and can hold the allergens and pollutants longer than dry air. Reducing the humidity can reduce your allergy symptoms and help you breathe easier. A dehumidifier not only lowers the amount of moisture in your indoor air, but it helps filter out the pollutants at the same time, making you more comfortable.

If you’ve been looking for some good reasons to add a dehumidifier to your HVAC system this summer, you’ve come to the right place. There are a number of benefits to drying out your inside air this summer, and we’ve only listed 3 of them.

The technician was on time and prompt. Very professional and didn't try to upsell me. I would recommend him to others and would use him again in the future. He was forthright and straight up about my unit. I appreciated his honesty.
