Louisville Whole-House Dehumidifiers

We place a great deal of importance on finding the right temperature to create a comfortable and relaxing home atmosphere. Many people don’t realize it takes more than heating or cooling to maintain a cozy home – humidity levels also impact how comfortable you feel inside your house. The relative humidity inside a home fluctuates per day – when the level shifts outside of the balanced range, the home becomes uncomfortable and is vulnerable to moisture problems. Both high and low moisture affect comfort, well-being, and the integrity of your home.

Louisville homeowners must make balanced relative humidity a priority in their homes.  There will always be some amount of moisture in the air, and some humidity is necessary to maintain comfort, achieve energy-efficient HVAC system operation, and protect the home from damage. Between 35% and 50% is the ideal relative humidity range that is both comfortable and safe for most households.

During the summer months, when Louisville is hit with naturally high humidity levels, increased moisture in the outdoor atmosphere throws off balance inside the house. When a home’s relative humidity increases beyond the 50% mark, help is needed to remove moisture and bring humidity back down in the comfortable and safe range.

Whole home dehumidifiers are powerful indoor air quality solutions that make balancing humidity levels a breeze for heating and cooling systems! When buying a dehumidifier for your Louisville area home, Jarboe’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing provides the best dehumidifier for your home size and household needs. With the power to remove many pints of water vapor from your air per day, you won’t suffer through summer inside a muggy house when you have a dehumidifier. Keep moisture under control in every space, rooms large or small, to experience a more comfortable atmosphere as well as energy savings on heating and cooling!

Dehumidifier Installation Service

A dehumidifier is a specialized type of HVAC equipment that draws water vapor out of the air inside a home or building. Louisville area residents often use dehumidifiers through the summer months to combat naturally high humidity levels. Our summers are usually quite humid and outdoor conditions do cause changes inside the house. A dehumidifier helps the air conditioner extract moisture while the cooling system runs, or it can run independently for use as needed.

The dehumidifier is installed with your indoor heating and cooling equipment on the duct to address moisture levels of all indoor air. Buying a small Home Depot dehumidifier or dehumidifier at Walmart will not get you the substantial dehumidification capability available in whole-home dehumidifiers.

Air enters the return duct from a space inside the home and moves to the HVAC unit to be conditioned. When a dehumidifier is installed, air must move through the unit before reaching the furnace or air handler for heating or cooling. While passing through the dehumidifier, cooling causes water vapor to convert to liquid water.  When water changes states into a liquid instead of water vapor, it isn’t able to remain a part of the air. The water extracted by the dehumidifier drains back out of the unit through an attached drain line, so the system drains automatically – with a dehumidifier Walmart sells, the user must frequently empty the reservoir so the unit can operate and to avoid leaks as well as water damage.

A whole-home dehumidifier’s energy efficiency is much greater than a small-space dehumidifier can achieve. Whole house dehumidifiers are bigger units and do need more power for operation. Despite higher electrical consumption, the dehumidifier generates great energy savings because it has a much greater capacity for dehumidification – it effectively removes moisture in a shorter time than a room space unit and doesn’t have to cycle as frequently to get the job done right. ENERGY STAR® rated dehumidifiers increase your energy savings potential. These units have the power to extract multiple pints of water from a home’s air per day – this capacity just can’t be found in smaller dehumidifiers.
