What HVAC Products can Help Manage Humidity?
All homes need humidity control, especially in southern regions like Huntersville NC. Today, whole-house central dehumidifiers are one of the best HVAC products on the market to control levels of humidity. These HVAC products are available for all sizes of homes, including condos, townhomes and single-family homes. Air conditioning systems are engineered to control temperature and not for removing excessive moisture from the air. During the spring and fall seasons when the air conditioning is not running, the outdoor temperature may still be cool but feel very damp inside. Whole-house central dehumidifiers are the ideal HVAC products that can be used year-round.
How Do Dehumidifiers Work?
Dehumidifiers can be installed as part of a residential heating and cooling system. Specifically, a central dehumidifier will extract air from each room in the residence through the return ducts. The moisture is removed, and dry air is sent back throughout the house. Working along with an air conditioner, these products assist in balancing humidity levels in the residence. They can also work independently if you don’t need the air conditioner on. In addition to central dehumidifiers, there are also smaller units that can be used individually in specific areas of the home, such as a basement. Usually, the moisture is deposited in a pan in the room dehumidifier and needs to be emptied on a regular basis.
If you’re uncertain as to whether or not your home needs a dehumidifier, here’s a list of some indicators:
- Floors feel sweaty and sticky
- Difficulty sleeping due to stuffiness in the air
- Musty odors in areas of the home
- Mildew and mold growth in the home
- Water stains on ceilings or walls
- Condensation on water pipes
