Whole House Dehumidifiers
Air conditioners do provide some level of dehumidification in order to keep you cool. However, your AC may not be enough to keep excessive humidity levels under control during our hot, sticky summers here in Texas. Adding a dehumidifier is a simple way to keep moisture levels inside your home within a comfortable range.
Having too much moisture in the air can cause the following problems:
- Mold growth
- Odors of mildew or rotting wood
- Damage to personal belongings, such as wood furniture and books
- Allergies caused by mold spores and dust mites
- Added strain on your AC system
Dehumidifiers work by attracting excess moisture particles in the air and collecting the condensation into a tank, which can be emptied. You may be surprised by just how much water that turns out to be!
Whole House Humidifiers
You may experience the opposite problem in the winter when you run your heating system. Your heater can make your indoor air more dry, which can cause uncomfortable problems like nosebleeds, dry skin, and itchy throat and eyes. A level of humidity that is too low can also have a negative effect on the things inside your home, threatening things like wood floors, leather furniture, and musical instruments. Plus, indoor air that is too dry may even threaten your health, making it easier for bacteria and viruses to spread.
If your home feels like a desert in the middle of winter, a humidifier may be for you. Whole house humidifiers are installed into your ductwork and are connected directly to your home's water supply. As your heating system runs, moisture is allowed to evaporate into the air and is blown into your home. Maintenance on these systems is minimal and can be addressed during your yearly furnace maintenance appointment.
