Fresno, CA Dehumidifiers by Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning
Just because we have a pretty dry climate most of the time doesn’t mean you can’t experience excessive humidity inside your home. Are you seeing condensation on the inside of your windows, or feeling clammy when your air conditioner is running? These can be indications there is too much humidity in your home, and it may be time to consider the installation of a whole-home dehumidifier. Excess humidity can lead to a host of problems, such as mold development, dust mite growth, bubbling of paint and wallpaper, and rot on wood. While a small, independent room dehumidifier may help reduce excess moisture in a specific location of your home, a room dehumidifier cannot benefit your house the way a whole-home dehumidifier can. One of the reasons for this is that whole-home dehumidifiers remove the excess moisture from your indoor air before it circulates through your home; another reason is that a whole-home dehumidifier works with the cycling of your HVAC, but it can also work independently. How does your dehumidifier know when the humidity has gone over your set limit? The dehumidifier is connected directly to your thermostat, which is equipped with a humidistat that constantly monitors your home’s indoor humidity level. The seamless integration of a whole-home dehumidifier, when installed by our indoor air quality experts, ensures that your home will stay at the constant, comfortable humidity level you want it to year-round.

Reasons to Consider a Whole–Home Dehumidifier
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, homeowners should try to maintain an indoor humidity level between 30%–50% at all times. The reason for this is that at humidity levels of 60% and higher, multiple contaminants can proliferate, including mold and mildew, dust mite populations and certain kinds of fungi. Keeping your home’s humidity level at a rate below 60% helps ensure that these kinds of growths don’t develop or, if they are already present, don’t have the moisture needed to survive. But excess humidity isn’t just hard on you and your home, it can also be hard on your HVAC system. Humidity holds heat and during the summer months, your HVAC will have to work harder to make your home feel cool. Extra work on behalf of your HVAC means extra stress and extra energy use – problems that can cost you money down the road. When you hire one of our experts to install a whole–home dehumidifier, you take this extra pressure off your HVAC system and bring a needed level of health and comfort to your home.
