Whole-House Dehumidifiers -- 3 Worthwhile Benefits

April 24, 2012 | Blog

Homes in Southeast and Gulf Coast climates require humidity control throughout the year for optimum comfort. In many climates, the dehumidifying function of the air conditioner is sufficient to keep humidity levels under control. In South Texas, however, the high humidity makes it feel even hotter outside. It also may prevent your air conditioner from keeping up with dehumidification. That’s why your home probably could use a whole-house dehumidifier.

With a whole-house unit installed, you can rest assured that humidity will be pulled evenly out of every room in your home. Here are the top three benefits of whole-house dehumidifiers:

  1. Comfort: Working in conjunction with the air conditioner, a whole-house dehumidifier works to lower the humidity to a more comfortable level. You can even run your whole-house dehumidifier independent of the air conditioner to remove humidity and feel more comfortable without over-cooling your home. This is beneficial on days when the temperature is pleasant but the humidity levels are still high. You’ll never resort to over-cooling your home to prevent that sticky, sweaty feeling again.
  2. Prevent Condensation Problems: When you run your air conditioner below 74 degrees to stay comfortable you run the risk of condensation build up.  Not only on the ductwork, equipment, and supply grilles, but also inside your exterior walls.  Getting the inside surface of the walls exceptionally cold like that in the summer time can cause condensation to form inside the walls.  And once the condensation forms it can cause mold and fungal growth.
  3. Protection: Mold problems are most common in the summer when humidity levels are high. Also, wood furniture, flooring, cabinetry and musical instruments can be damaged by high humidity. Protect your investments by guarding against excess moisture.

You know you can benefit from a whole-house dehumidifier if you have to turn down the thermostat to 74 degrees or lower because you do not feel comfortable in your home. There’s a better way to get comfortable, and you can enjoy all the benefits of a whole-house dehumidifier this summer. Contact CCAC, Inc. in Corpus Christi today to learn more.
