Dehumidifiers for Improved Air Quality

When it comes to HVAC, temperature control tends to be the name of the game. Most homeowners want their system to be able to quickly and consistently bring the temperature in the house to the number that they set on the thermostat. That’s important, but it’s only part of the story. Humidity plays a huge role in how comfortable your home feels, and to cut down on it in the middle of a hot Carolina summer, having a dehumidifier included in your system is a big advantage. When you are ready to get started with a dehumidifier installation project, reach out to Berico.

What is a Whole-Home Dehumidifier?

The purpose and function of a whole-home dehumidifier can be found right there in the name. This is a device that is added to your HVAC system with the specific purpose of bringing down the humidity inside of your home.

Whole-home dehumidifiers are not particularly relevant for many people across the country, but here in the Greensboro area, they are a major upgrade. With the humidity that is often seen in this area in the summer months, having the ability to pull moisture out of the air inside your house is particularly valuable.

Whole-Home Dehumidifier Benefits

In exchange for the upfront investment that is required to purchase and install a whole-home dehumidifier, you are going to enjoy a number of notable benefits. Those include the following :

  • Improved comfort. High humidity levels are simply uncomfortable for humans. Even if you are used to the humid days that happen often in this part of the world, that doesn’t mean you enjoy them. With a quality dehumidifier working within your HVAC system, you can take moisture out of the air and enjoy your time more comfortably throughout the year.
  • Protect your home. It’s not only the people in your house that can benefit from a dehumidifier. When the air in your house is consistently moist, that moisture can take a toll on various components and pieces of equipment that work inside the house. Whether it’s mold and mildew developing on wood surfaces or a variety of other issues, the damage in the long run can be significant. A dehumidifier addresses this issue nicely and will help to keep your home and everything in it in better condition.
  • Better overall performance. Your air conditioner does work to dehumidify the air in the house, but it can only do so much. Also, if it is trying to cool particularly humid air, it is going to take longer and have to work harder to bring your house to the right temperature. Pairing a dehumidifier with your existing air conditioner is a plan that will lead to more comfort and efficiency.
