Whole-House Dehumidifiers in Columbia SC
Maximize Your Home Comfort & Indoor Air Quality
Muggy, humid, damp summers are no stranger to South Carolina. Residents know all too well that even with the air conditioning running, moisture still hangs around that does not seem to go away. At All American Heating and Air, we want to help solve your humidity problems by helping you install a whole-house dehumidifier. These dehumidifiers can keep you cool and comfortable and potentially reduce the cost of your utility bills by helping to remove the moisture from the air.
How Does a Dehumidifier Work?
When you work with All American Heating and Air to install a whole-house dehumidifier, you will begin to see and feel an immediate advantage. Not only will the dehumidifier remove stagnant moisture from your home, but it can help reduce the cost of your energy bill. When it is not warm enough for the air conditioner in the spring and fall, your dehumidifier can remove the warm, muggy air without having to run the AC. Even during the warm summer months, the dehumidifier can reduce the stuffy air, allowing your AC to work more efficiently.
Do whole-house dehumidifiers work?
Whole-house humidifiers have numerous benefits and can help keep you and your family comfortable and even healthy. Some of the benefits include a lower risk of mold, fewer allergy triggers, drier air that can make your AC feel cooler, and even fewer dust mites. Below we expound more on the benefits of a whole-house dehumidifier.
Benefits of a Whole House Dehumidifier
Reduces the risk of mold and mildew by drying out damp areas
According to the U.S. EPA, by reducing your home's humidity, you decrease the possibility of dangerous molds and mildew growing inside your household.
Reduces Dust Mites and Allergens
With a whole-house dehumidifier, dust mites don't have the ability to thrive. If your household has someone who suffers from allergies or asthma, the benefit of a dehumidifier will lower the humidity levels in your home and reduce dust mites.
Having drier air can help you run your thermostat 1 to 3 degrees higher than normal and help you save money on AC costs.
A portable dehumidifier is great for small rooms, but you have to move it from room to room if you want the same results. With a whole-home dehumidifier, it's connected to your ductwork and will dehumidify your entire home. All you need to do is set it and forget it.
The dehumidifiers can be set to turn on when the relative humidity outside reaches a predetermined capacity. Once the sensors recognize the air's moisture, the dehumidifier reduces the moisture and drying out the inside of the home.
