Living in Southern Florida means dealing with a lot of hot, humid weather. The high humidity can have several effects on your home and environment as well as your comfort and health. Thankfully, whole-house dehumidifiers are a great way to moderate the overall humidity inside your home.
Installed to work in conjunction with your home’s heating and cooling system, the whole-house dehumidifier draws air from your home through the return ductwork. The warm, moist air is then pulled into the unit and cooled, which causes the moisture in the air to condense into water droplets. The drips of water fall into a collection pan or are drained directly down the drain, while the dry air is then passed over warm coils to bring it back to the desired room temperature.
Whole-house dehumidifiers can be installed in new or existing homes. They offer a more comprehensive solution to overall moisture control in your home when compared to portable units that only control the humidity in one room.
For Sarasota residents looking for additional comfort control, whole-house dehumidifiers are a healthy, energy efficient solution to indoor moisture control.
