Dehumidifier Services in Salt Lake City, UT

Does your home feel muggy and damp during long stretches of the year? Do you find that you need to run the air conditioning system almost constantly in the summer in order to overcome humid air? Then you should consider installing a whole-house dehumidifier. These systems work in a way similar to air conditioners: they circulate refrigerant through a coil that attracts moisture through a process of evaporation and then removes the trapped moisture. This helps to improve your indoor air quality and keep you comfortable throughout the year.

A whole-house dehumidifier isn’t an appliance you can buy over the counter and install yourself. To achieve the balanced humidity your home requires, you must leave the job to indoor air quality professionals. Look to the experienced team at Scott Hale Plumbing, Heating & Air for installation and other services for dehumidifiers.

The technicians at Scott Hale offer dehumidifier installation, replacement, repair, and maintenance in and the surrounding areas. Contact us today for an appointment.

Some of the Benefits of Whole–House Dehumidifiers

Why is humidity such a major hassle during hot weather? The reason is that the excess moisture in the air makes it harder for the human body to release heat through perspiration. This traps more heat in the body, and this subsequently makes hot temperatures feel even hotter—often by 8–10° F. When relative humidity is balanced (between 30% and 60%), it takes the edge off the heat and makes it easier to keep cool. This is the main reason to have a whole–house dehumidifier installed.

There are other benefits to having a whole–house dehumidifier installed aside from helping with comfort:

  • Energy savings: That 8–10° improvement in comfort can often mean the difference in weather your air conditioning system needs to come on during a summer day. You can expect to run the AC much less when humidity is properly balanced, and will consequently see a significant drop in your electrical bills each month.
  • Water damage reduction: High humidity will create moisture along surfaces in a house, and this will lead to water damage. Wood rot and destruction from mildew are common in houses that suffer from high humidity. A dehumidifier will eliminate this issue at the source.
  • Mold growth: Excess humidity in a home can also be unhealthy because it encourages the growth of molds that release toxic spores into the air. Mold is especially prone to grow inside the HVAC system, out of sight along the coils and ducts. People in your home with asthma and allergies will benefit immensely with a dehumidifier to stop mold development.

You need to exercise caution when it comes to a dehumidifier for a home since one that is too powerful and unsuited to the conditions in the house will make the air too dry, and that’s a serious situation that comes with its own set of problems. This is why you must always turn to an indoor air quality professional to pick and install a whole-house dehumidifier. Our team at Scott Hale Plumbing, Drains, Heating & Air will take into account the workings of the air conditioner (which has some minor dehumidifying properties) so that you will end up with the right balance of moisture levels in your home for comfort.
