High Relative Humidity Indoors? Mold Problems? Time To Consider Dehumidification Options

November 8, 2011 | Blog

High humidity inside your house can lead to a variety of problems, including mold, mildew, bad odors, and damage to the structure and furnishings. Humidity control is an important factor in maintaining indoor comfort and in keeping moisture-related issues from occurring. This is especially true in a Southern climate such as that in the Coastal Bend, where dehumidification is needed year-round. Air conditioning helps, but it won’t take care of all the humidity problems in your home.

Whole-house dehumidifiers are a sensible solution to humidity problems in your home. Working in conjunction with your air conditioner, these appliances balance indoor humidity levels.

Whole-house dehumidifiers work by taking in air from every room in the house through your cooling system’s return ductwork. The dehumidifier removes the moisture from this air, then sends the dry air back into the cooling system and to areas around your home. Even on days when you don’t need cooling from the air conditioner, your whole house dehumidifier can work to keep your household air dry and comfortable.

How do you know if a whole-house dehumidifier will be right for you? Consider some of the following home comfort and individual health situations. Large-scale dehumidification may be the best way to eliminate such troubles.

  • Clammy or stuffy feeling in the air
  • Sticky or sweaty floors
  • Musty odors or unusual smells
  • Condensation on water pipes
  • Wet spots or stains on walls or ceilings
  • Noticeable mold or mildew growth
  • Trouble sleeping because of the condition of the air
  • Aggravation of allergies

With a reliable dehumidification system, you can experience greater indoor comfort and improved physical health. Damage to floors, walls and cabinets will be reduced.

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.
