Learning About Commercial HVAC Systems

Hello, my name is Jacob. I would like to talk about proper installation and repair of the HVAC system in your commercial building. Full scale HVAC systems for commercial buildings require ongoing maintenance and repairs to keep every floor and room at a comfortable temperature. These temperature control systems also control the air quality in the building by sending the airflow through filter elements. My site will cover all aspects of the upkeep needed for these systems. I will also talk about the benefits of keeping your air quality and temperatures at desirable levels. Thanks for coming to visit my website.

Muggy Air? A Whole-Home Dehumidifier Offers Many Benefits

Isaiah Chapman

Does the air in your home always feel moist and muggy? High humidity is very common, especially in the summer months, and though air conditioning units are designed to remove humidity, they can't always keep in the most humid of environments or in homes where the building structure makes it easy for humid air to get trapped in corners. If your air is humid and muggy, installing a whole-home dehumidifier, which integrates with your HVAC system and removes moisture from your air as it cycles through, is advised. Here's a look at some of the many benefits you'll experience with a whole-home dehumidifier.

Your AC unit won't have to work as hard.

If your home is very humid, your AC unit will be working overtime to try and remove the moisture from your air during its cooling process. This puts a lot of wear and tear on your AC unit and may lead to premature breakdowns. Install a dehumidifier, and some of the stress will be taken off of your AC unit, increasing its lifespan.

Your home will feel cooler.

Humidity tends to make a space feel warmer. A humid, 76-degree home will feel a lot hotter than a 76-degree home with dry air. Install a dehumidifier, and you may be able to comfortably set your thermostat a bit higher, keeping your energy bills in check.

Mold won't be such an issue.

If you've noticed a lot of mold in areas like your basement and bathroom, decreasing your humidity will help. Mold grows in moist areas, and it won't thrive once your home's air is dried out. Mold is not just an annoyance. It can lead to allergy symptoms and respiratory problems, so it's definitely a healthy choice to get rid of it.

Your building materials will stay in better shape.

Moisture is not good for most building materials. It can promote rot in wood, make drywall more prone to deterioration, and cause more decorative elements like wallpaper and paint to peel. With dryer air, you should have fewer issues with your building materials, and your home should stay in good shape for longer.

Installing a whole-home dehumidifier is a project best left to a professional HVAC technician, like one from Advanced Air Quality Services, since the unit will have to be integrated with your existing equipment. If your air is humid, the dehumidifier is certainly a worthwhile investment that will continue to benefit you for many years to come.
