Dehumidifier Services in Birmingham, AL

When the heat of summer is at its zenith, it can be pretty tough to live comfortably in this part of the country. At some point, you've certainly heard the proclamation that it's not actually the heat, but the humidity, that leads to such intense discomfort. It's true that a dry heat is more bearable, as the lower moisture level allows your body to evaporate sweat more successfully, which acts as a natural cooling factor. With that in mind, it's fairly obvious to see how having very high humidity levels in your home can lead to undesirable circumstances therein.

Signs That You Need a Whole–House Dehumidifier

It’s safe to say that you’ll be using an air conditioning system in your home during the Alabama summers. Dehumidification is a natural part of the air conditioning process, and some homes may not require additional dehumidification in order to balance humidity appropriately. Many will, though, and it is important to remember that dehumidification is not the primary function of an air conditioner. There are many signs that indicate the need for a whole–house dehumidifier in one’s home.

Keep an eye out for excessive condensation on your windows or plumbing fixtures during the summer season. This may indicate that the air in your home is overly saturated. Wood rot, the smell of mildew, and even the development of mold in your home can also indicate that additional dehumidification is necessary. While portable dehumidifiers can be useful in single rooms, a whole–house dehumidifier is much better for dealing with pervasive issues with high humidity levels.

We Install and Replace Dehumidifiers

Unlike portable dehumidifiers, which may be carried or wheeled throughout the home and can simply be emptied by hand, a whole–house dehumidifier is integrated directly into the HVAC system in one’s residence. Because of this, it is necessary to schedule a professional dehumidifier installation or replacement. Only then can you be sure that your device is appropriately sized for your needs, and that it is draining successfully. You don’t want to have undetected leaks in your system, after all. If you need a new dehumidifier installed, or if the time has come for a dehumidifier replacement, just let us know.

Call for Whole–House Dehumidifier Repairs and Maintenance

Generally speaking, a whole–house dehumidifier is not going to require very extensive maintenance. It should certainly be assessed for proper functionality when your HVAC is maintained each year, though. Should you encounter any problems with your dehumidifier, you can count on our staff to complete your dehumidifier repairs with the skill and expertise that the job demands. If it seems like your dehumidifier is not operating effectively, if it won’t come on when you call for it, or if any other issues develop, dial our number to have the problem resolved promptly by skilled, trained professionals.
