What is a Dehumidifier?

Dehumidifiers reduce the level of humidity in the air. A dehumidifier can provide comfort to people living in humid areas. However, dehumidifiers can also be necessary for health and safety reasons. High humidity tends to lead to the growth of mold and mildew as well as an increase in dust mites. Each of these can make you sick and may even cause serious respiratory problems. Preexisting conditions such as asthma or allergies can also be agitated in such environments. At Mountain Air Heating and Cooling, we can install a whole-house dehumidifier with ease by connecting it to your home’s heating and cooling system.

Dehumidifier Installation

A dehumidifier works by sucking in your home’s air and removing any water from it. The collected water condensates and is disposed of. A portable dehumidifier can adjust the moisture levels of a single room. However, whole-house dehumidifiers are far more effective and efficient. They also allow you to easily control your home’s humidity level with your thermostat. There are many different types of dehumidifiers. With over 40 years of experience, we can access your home and help you decide which model is best for you.

Dehumidifier Servicing and Maintenance

For the most part, dehumidifiers require little maintenance. The water tank needs to be emptied periodically and regular cleaning can help decrease the likelihood of bacteria growth. Other maintenance tasks- such as vacuuming the coils, making sure the fan is working properly, and confirming that the house’s air ducts are clear- are best performed by a certified technician. We provide discounted deals on annual maintenance plans that save you from the hassle of remembering to schedule an appointment. In addition, regular check-ups can save you from more expensive repairs down the road and keep your dehumidifier unit working for years.
