Installing a Dehumidifier Can Help You Beat Ohio’s Humidity
The climate in Columbus, Ohio, features hot summers with high humidity. Humidity makes warm air feel hotter, which can make it more difficult to feel comfortable. It affects your home, as well. Excess moisture in the air can collect on surfaces, leading to the growth of mold or mildew. HVAC dehumidifier installation can help you control the moisture and comfort in your home.
Dehumidifiers operate by removing moisture from your indoor air. Your air conditioning unit works to control humidity, but sometimes it struggles to stay ahead of the moisture accumulation. Whole home dehumidifier installation can work with other HVAC products, so that you get better moisture control that leads to greater comfort.
If you’re tired of the effects of humidity on your health and happiness, Columbus Worthington Air has the solution. Contact us to learn how a dehumidifier could make your life easier and more comfortable, especially in the summer.
Reasons to Call CWA for Professional Dehumidifier Installation
When you’re thinking about how best to improve your HVAC system, remember that you need to call the professionals at CWA to handle the installation. Dehumidifier service is not a DIY project, and there are a number of benefits to calling our technicians:
- Experience: Installing a dehumidifier requires knowledge and expertise. Our technicians know how to choose the right size for your home, and we handle everything related to the installation process. We’re happy to help you get the most from your purchase.
- Proper Installation: Your dehumidifier needs to be installed correctly to ensure good operation and efficiency over time. Improper installation can decrease the output of the equipment or increase the likelihood of a breakdown.
- Overall Cost: Although professional installation takes more of an investment at first, it pays off in the long term. DIY installation is more likely to cause damage or unseen problems, requiring more money to fix or replace.
- Warranty Protection: Warranties can help to protect you in the event of equipment failure due to a manufacturer defect. To ensure that warranty claims relate to equipment defects and not improper use or installation, they usually require professional service to honor the warranty.
How does a dehumidifier work?
A dehumidifier works similar to your air conditioner. The system draws air across a coil that extracts moisture and collects it for draining. The system then allows the air to go through additional steps of the process, which might include heat extraction as part of your home’s air conditioning. Dehumidifiers can be installed to work directly with your HVAC system or operate as a standalone unit.
When should I consider installing a dehumidifier?
In areas with high humidity in the summer, it’s generally a good idea to think about using a dehumidifier. You’re more likely to need it if you suffer from frequent allergies or asthma symptoms at home, you struggle with mold or mildew problems or you notice that your home smells musty. If you’re not sure whether you could benefit from installing a dehumidifier, you might consider purchasing a sensor to track your indoor humidity. Our technicians are delighted to help you evaluate your options.
What are common signs of excess moisture in the home?
It’s common to feel like the humid summer is uncomfortable, but you should be able to get away from it inside your home. If it feels like your bathroom never fully dries after taking a shower or you notice condensation collecting on your walls and windows, you may have high humidity inside the house. You may observe more problems in certain parts of the home, such as the basement, bathroom or kitchen.
Can I DIY dehumidifier installation?
As a rule, you should plan to hire our technicians to install your dehumidifier. Standalone units can be easy to purchase, bring home and plug in for use. Without our professional input, however, you may not know how to choose the correct size or maintain the unit, so it continues to work well. For a whole home dehumidifier, you need to book an appointment for installation, so you can ensure it works with your HVAC system.
How do I choose the right size for the dehumidifier?
The right size for your dehumidifier depends on your home, location, square footage, health concerns and other factors. It’s best to ask our technicians to assess your home and determine which models are best to meet your expectations. That way, you get the benefits you expect without causing other problems for your HVAC system.
Can a dehumidifier provide health benefits?
Installing and using a dehumidifier provides a number of health benefits. High humidity in the home can lead to mold growth and an increase in dust mites, which can make dust allergy symptoms worse. If you can get your home’s humidity to a manageable level, you can improve your indoor air quality and decrease effects of respiratory conditions.
When do I need to maintain a dehumidifier?
The way to maintain a dehumidifier depends on the type, size and other factors. A standalone unit usually has a reservoir that you need to empty regularly, sometimes more than once a day. You should check the filter and replace it when it gets dirty. A whole home dehumidifier is designed to fit seamlessly with your HVAC equipment. That way, you can book an appointment for routine maintenance for the equipment once a year along with your air conditioning system.
What is the cost of dehumidifier installation?
The cost to install a dehumidifier depends on a few factors, such as the condition of your HVAC system, your current needs for moisture control and the size of your home. When you call Columbus Worthington Air for a consultation on dehumidifier installation, we can evaluate your home and provide a written estimate for the total price.
How long does dehumidifier installation take?
The time needed to install your dehumidifier varies from a few hours to a full day. If you have an existing dehumidifier that you are looking to replace, our technicians need time to remove the old equipment, so that we can make room for the new unit. Installation involves inspecting your system for general function to identify any problems that may prevent the dehumidifier from operating correctly. Finally, we test the installed equipment to confirm that everything works according to specification.
