Indoor Air Quality
Schedule Service

Simply walking outside in south Florida can sometimes feel like entering a sauna due to the high humidity. Many homeowners assume that their air conditioner removes the humidity from the air—which it does, to a degree.

Removal of excess moisture in the air is a secondary function of the system as it conditions the air…a byproduct of its primary purpose, if you will. However, the primary function of a dehumidifier is to permanently remove excess moisture from the air and leave your home as comfortable as possible.

Advantages of Whole House Dehumidifier

  • Greater comfort at home. Generally speaking, people are most comfortable with relative humidity between 30% and 50%. If it’s too humid, our bodies have a harder time performing natural cooling processes, leaving us hot and uncomfortable.
  • Lower energy bills. Moisture-filled air is more difficult to treat and cool, so a home with less humidity requires a lot less energy to keep cool. This is especially true in humid climates, like south Florida.
  • Better health. Moisture provides a safe haven for mold and fungal growth, so by removing the moisture, the risk for mold growth is minimized, ensuring a healthier home and better air quality.

Disadvantages of Whole House Dehumidifier

  • Living where we do, the primary disadvantage of a whole house dehumidifier is the up-front cost. The purchase and installation of a whole house dehumidifier can add up quickly—but like any major purchase, it’s important to do a cost-benefit analysis and determine if it’s the best option for your home and budget.
