How You Could Benefit from AC Dehumidifier Installation
Excessive humidity in your home will adversely affect your indoor air quality, creating an uncomfortable environment and potentially damaging your property. Installing an air conditioner dehumidifier will help you avoid the following by regulating your home’s moisture levels:
- Clammy skin and thick air that is difficult to breathe
- Indoor mold and mildew growth
- Rotting wood
- Allergy symptoms
- Wet spots on walls, floors, and ceilings
While indoor air conditioners can remove some humidity, they don’t work well enough on a large scale. Lower humidity will also put less strain on your central air conditioner and heating system, reducing monthly utility bills.
Problems Requiring Professional AC Dehumidifier Repair
If your air conditioner dehumidifier stops working, sometimes it can help to try some basic troubleshooting before calling for repairs. Dehumidifier systems may not turn on because the reservoir is full or because of improper settings.
Another common problem is finding ice on the evaporator coils of whole-house units, which is usually not a serious issue. However, if these problems persist and can’t be solved by regular troubleshooting, you should call us for professional repairs.
A system that consistently fails to turn on may have blown electrical circuits or other internal problems, while evaporators that stay frozen for extended periods indicate temperatures too low for that specific model. You should also call our experts if you notice more severe problems such as refrigerant leaks.
Make sure your dehumidified air stays clean and fresh with our whole-house filtration system installation services.
Whole-Home vs. Single-Room Dehumidifiers
When you decide that you need to install a dehumidifier, you can choose between smaller units that work in a small area or whole-house systems that connect to your heating and cooling systems.
Single-room humidifiers are less expensive and easily operate just by plugging them into the wall. However, if you want humidity control for your entire house, you may need to install multiple dehumidifiers.
Whole-home dehumidifiers require a larger initial investment but will be more energy efficient in the long run. They use your existing HVAC ductwork to reduce humidity in your entire property with one system rather than operating with multiple appliances. They also work automatically and require much less maintenance and fewer repairs than single-room dehumidifiers.
