Indoor Air Quality
- Advantage Program
Around here, one of the biggest complaints about summer weather is our high humidity. Lawrenceville, GA residents are probably very familiar with the phrase, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity,” which is a very true statement. Relative humidity levels should be between 30-50% and anything above that threshold is considered excessive.
Excessive humidity makes the already warm temperatures seem even warmer, and causes problems indoors, too. For instance, the increased moisture encourages the development of unhealthy mold and mildew, which threatens to make you and your family sick. Fortunately, there is something you can do about it! Reach out to Wall Heating and Air today for a quality whole house dehumidifier system installation.
We’re committed to our slogan of “When Your Comfort Needs to Be Just Right,” and this includes ensuring your indoor air quality is at its best.
How Do Dehumidifiers Work?
These indoor air quality systems function similarly to central air conditioners—in fact if you have a central, forced–air AC unit then it does have some dehumidification properties, but not enough to make a real difference to the comfort levels in your Lawrenceville, GA home.
A whole–house dehumidifier system installation is integrated directly into your HVAC system, and uses a refrigerant coil to absorb both heat and moisture. It removes the moisture down a drain, and then reheats the air so that it won’t interfere with the functionality of your air conditioner, bringing your indoor relative humidity down to a more acceptable level.
What Are the Benefits of a Dehumidifier?
There are a number of ways in which a whole home dehumidifier will benefit your living space.
- Increased Comfort: We mentioned this above—excessive humidity makes warm temperatures seem even hotter. The lower moisture levels that a dehumidifier brings enable our bodies to release heat faster through the skin, helping us to feel cooler.
- Better Air Conditioner Efficiency: Since drier air helps you cool off faster, you’ll be able to raise your air conditioner’s thermostat a bit, which will help it shut off sooner and not work as hard during our long summer days. This results in lower utility bills for you!
- Water Damage Prevention: The increased amount of moisture in your Lawrenceville, GA home during the summer means an increased risk of water damage, and that leads to the development of mold and mildew. A whole–home dehumidifier eliminates this risk, making your home and the people living in it healthier.
