How a Dehumidifier Helps You and Your Air Conditioner

Even though September brings thoughts of the fall, we can actually encounter some of our hottest temperatures during the first part of this month. Our heat is typically mixed with a good amount of humidity during this time of year, so much so that your air conditioning system may struggle with dehumidifying your home properly. A home with cool, moist air ends up feeling cool and clammy, not cool and dry, usurping the whole point of having a whole home AC system to begin with. But the indoor air quality experts at Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling have a great solution for you: a whole house dehumidifier.

Why It Helps

Dehumidification is part of the cooling process, but when we experience high humidity for several days or even a week, your AC can struggle. You can purchase individual room dehumidifiers, but these units only dehumidify the air immediately surrounding it; as such, you won’t really be drying your air as needed. When you add a whole house dehumidifier to your air conditioning system, the air is dehumidified before it can enter your AC. This action helps to:

  • Reduce the stress on your air conditioning system
  • Reduce the wear and tear on your air conditioning system
  • Dry the air more effectively
  • Make your home more comfortable
  • Allow you to set your thermostat a few degrees higher because the air is drier

Installation Isn’t a DIY Job

A whole home dehumidifier becomes a part of your air conditioning system. As such, installation and service should always be handled by trained experts like ours.
