When summers get as hot as they can get in Huntington, WV, air conditioning is sometimes not enough. Often, dehumidifier installation is needed to keep a home as comfortable as it can be. Pulling the excess humidity out of the air helps it to stay cool, as cooler air can’t hold as much humidity as warmer air. Dehumidification has a host of other benefits as well. Our professionals at Variable Comfort Solutions are skilled in both installing dehumidifiers and dehumidifier repair and maintenance.
"Everyone was so nice and they were able to come the same day we called. Heath was professional and made it easy to understand what was wrong. Would definitely use them again!"
Dehumidifiers come in three main types. One is the desiccant type, which uses silica gel or other water-drawing materials to pull the humidity out of the air. Another type of dehumidifier is based on the heat pump, and the third is a ventilator usually installed in your basement or attic. This system vents humid air outside your home through the use of a fan. Our technicians install whole-house dehumidifiers that they connect to the ductwork of your HVAC system. Because of this, it’s important to have at least one fan to help the air circulate and allow the dehumidifier to work more efficiently. If your home is very clammy, your AC system and a dehumidifier can work very well together to take that excess moisture out of the rooms.
The benefits of a whole-house dehumidifier are many and include:
Lower energy bills
Protection from water damage
Removal of bad smells
Protection from mold and mildew
When your home is very humid, your air conditioner must work much harder to cool down the air. This adds to your energy bills. As for comfort, you know that hot and humid air makes your skin feel clammy and just makes you hot and uncomfortable overall. A dehumidifier removes this uncomfortable level of humidity.
A home that is very humid can also cause water damage in the form of warped wood for floors and furniture, water-stained walls, and bubbled paint. High humidity also encourages the growth of molds and mildews. These organisms contribute to bad smells in the home as well as just being unhealthy overall.
