Deciding On The Dehumidifier That Meets Your Needs

June 15, 2011 | Blog

Dehumidifiers help prevent humidity from reaching unhealthy levels in the home. In an area like the Texas Gulf Coast, where humidity levels are high most of the year, excess moisture in the home can create the perfect environment for mold and bacteria to grow. This mold and bacteria can cause uncomfortable conditions for people who suffer from asthma and allergies. High levels of humidity can also affect the structural integrity of a home when moisture is absorbed into the wood and drywall of the home.  Not to mention the fact that it is just plain uncomfortable when the humidity level is high.

Determine if your home has an above-average level of moisture. We can perform testing to determine the temperature and relative humidity over time.  We can then determine what needs to be done to help reduce the moisture level in the home.  Depending on the humidity level you may need a whole-house dehumidifier to control the moisture year-round.  In many cases installing The AC-Enhancer on your air conditioning system can get the additional moisture removal out of your air conditioning system to take care of the excess moisture most of the time.

Many people can benefit from having a portable dehumidifier to use just certain times of the year when needed.  The problem with portables is they are noisy and have to be emptied a couple of times a day.  They also are not very energy efficient.  A Whole House Dehumidifier is installed to work with the air conditioning system and control the humidity in the entire home.  It is drained into the sewer system and has a control that brings it on any time the relative humidity gets above the set point.  This system is more expensive than the portable units, but is much more efficient and much more convenient.

If you would like to have your home tested for humidity or are considering the purchase of a dehumidifier, contact us at  Mathews CCAC Air Conditioning for more information. We’ll be glad to offer our expert advice.

Great Company

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
