Symptoms of Excess Humidity
How much humidity is too much? As a homeowner, you should always be on the lookout for warning signs that your air conditioner isn’t working as it should. Some common symptoms of excess humidity include:
- Water stains on drywall, baseboards, and ceilings
- Respiratory issues like colds and asthma attacks
- Higher than usual energy costs
- Moisture buildup under the air conditioner
- Condensation on the windows
- Mold growth
The biggest concern when it comes to excess humidity is mold growth. In many cases, mold can grow unseen for long periods of time until it causes significant health concerns for you and your family. If you suspect humidity is a problem, be sure to talk with one of our AC contractors for help.
How Can a Dehumidifier Help?
As mentioned before, your air conditioner is naturally a dehumidifier, but when it’s in heavy use or poorly maintained, it may struggle to keep up. An air conditioner dehumidifier works in conjunction with your HVAC unit to regulate the humidity in your home. As air passes through your air conditioner, it also passes through the dehumidifier before entering the home.
This unit then pulls the excess moisture out of the air and converts it into water. Some units have draining lines that get rid of the excess water buildup, with other units requiring you to empty it routinely.
As part of our dehumidifier installation service, we’ll help you find the right unit that works for your air conditioner and budget. All our services are personalized to your needs, ensuring you get a quality solution with every call.
