Dehumidifier Service

When people think of keeping comfortable indoors they often think of temperature. High quality air conditioners and heaters are certainly a big part of the home comfort equation, but indoor air quality should also be a concern if you’re looking to create and maintain the most comfortable environment possible in your home. A big factor in indoor air quality is the humidity in your home. Many people fail to realize that excessively moist air can promote germ growth and even lead to damages in your home in addition to feeling clammy and uncomfortable. If you’re home suffers from poor humidity balance, call air mechanical today. We can help you choose the right dehumidifier for your home, and we’ll even handle the installation, maintenance and repair service with the same high levels of quality, dependability and expertise that have made us a leading choice for indoor air quality service in the area.

How Whole–House Dehumidifiers Work

It is a common misconception that your air conditioner alone will provide adequate dehumidification power in your Andover home. The fact of the matter is that while your air conditioner does inherently perform some dehumidification service in its operation, this is not the function for which it is designed nor is it one that it performs efficiently or completely. If running a dehumidifier produced a byproduct of cool air it is doubtful that one would claim it to be an air conditioner.

Whole–house dehumidifiers are installed as part of your heating and cooling system, making use of those systems’ ductwork and registers. Air is pulled through the return ducts in the different rooms in your home and the moisture is removed. Then the dried air is redistributed throughout your house. One of the great perks of installing and operating a whole house dehumidifier is that it can work independently of your heating and cooling system, providing dehumidification service on mild days when heat and air conditioning are not necessary.
