Dehumidifiers have a wide variety of functions and uses for the home. Controlling humidity levels is crucial to improving your IAQ (indoor air quality) and keeping your family healthy. You don’t necessarily need a full air conditioning replacement to install a dehumidifier/humidifier system, as there are models that can easily be retrofitted to an existing HVAC installation. The challenge is in choosing the right type to meet your home’s needs.
Let our HVAC technicians at Air Products & Services walk you through some important pointers to keep in mind when selecting a dehumidifier.
Your choice of a dehumidifier depends on the amount of moisture you want to remove from your room or space. Small-capacity units can typically handle 40 pints of moisture in the air, while larger models can remove up to 90. Consult with your AC repair and installation specialist to determine the correct size for your home. There are also whole-home systems available that can control humidity levels in homes up to 3,000 square feet in size.
Alternatively, you could also select your dehumidifier based on where you intend to use it.
Crawl space dehumidifiers specialize in removing excess humidity from attics, crawl spaces and other small areas in your home.
Indoor pool dehumidifiers can help protect your home from structural damage caused by the massive amounts of moisture that come with an indoor pool.
Water damage restoration units are typically used by AC troubleshooting system professionals to temporarily control relative humidity during storm restoration, repairs or remodeling projects.
Industrial dehumidifiers are typically used to meet the strict moisture control requirements of factories, laboratories and medical facilities.
