What is a Whole House Dehumidifier?
A dehumidifier is a great air treatment solution for removing excessive moisture around your home and protecting it from dangerous mold and mildew. Essentially, a dehumidifier sucks in the air from a room, removes the moisture out of it, and then blows it back into the room again.
Why Use a Dehumidifier?
Installing a whole house dehumidifier can benefit you in a number of ways:
- Health. Allergy symptoms become aggravated with excess moisture. Too much moisture in your home can also help mold, mildew and bacteria grow. Using a dehumidifier can create a healthier environment and curb allergy symptoms.
- Comfort. Excess humidity creates a hot, muggy environment that is very uncomfortable. Removing moisture from your home’s air can help to ease these uncomfortable symptoms.
- Preservation. Excess humidity can damage many things in your home, including wood floors, walls, ceilings, and even electronics. A whole house dehumidifier can help protect these and other items from the effects of excessively moist air.
- Energy efficiency. Humidity makes you feel hotter, causing you to lower the thermostat and, in turn, raising energy costs. A whole-house dehumidification system can help you feel cooler at higher temperatures.
If you have excess moisture in your home’s air, call the air quality experts at Pat Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning to ask about dehumidifiers. A member of our experienced staff will schedule an appointment that is convenient for you, show up on time, and listen to your specific air quality concerns. We’ll help you choose the right dehumidifier and install it in your home.
Signs Your Dehumidifier isn’t Working Properly
Is your whole house dehumidifier not working properly? The most common problems that are associated with dehumidifiers include:
- Dehumidifier making noise. If your dehumidifier is making noise, it may be caused by the vibration of loose, internal parts.
- Dehumidifier is overflowing or leaking. An overflowing dehumidifier can mean that the float switch needs to be replaced.
- Humidifier has odd smell. Dehumidifier odors are generally caused by dirty condenser coils or by stagnant water pooling in a hose.
- Humidifier does not start. If your dehumidifier isn’t turning on, the problem may be with the power source or the controls.
If you’re experiencing any of these or other issues with your dehumidifier, call the air quality experts at Pat Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning. We can fix any problem that you’re having with your device.
Why is it Important to Maintain Your Dehumidifier?
The lifespan of your dehumidifier is based on the amount of use and maintenance. Dehumidifiers are low-maintenance devices. Regular maintenance includes filter changes once or twice a year, removal of excess moisture, and cleanings to remove dust or debris. The air quality experts at Pat Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning can maintain your dehumidifier.
