What’s the Best Home Dehumidifier?

Indoor relative humidity is a major element of comfortable and healthy indoor air quality (IAQ) for central New Jersey homeowners. There’s nothing worse than being uncomfortable in your own home—especially when it’s due to high humidity. And high humidity also creates health concerns regarding poor IAQ. However, you don’t have to resign yourself to a sticky, humid summer! Explore the benefits of how a whole-house dehumidifier installation in Somerset can boost comfort, alleviate many allergies, and even curb energy consumption and cooling expenses.

If you’re interested in a whole-house dehumidifier installation in Somerset or the surrounding areas, call Arctic Air Conditioning today at 732-455-9110 or contact us online.

Whole-House Dehumidifier Installation in Central New Jersey

Whole-house dehumidifiers are attached to your existing duct system—and if you don’t already have a duct system, ductwork would need to be installed by an HVAC professional. Whole-house dehumidifiers may rely solely on the air handler or blower of the cooling and heating system, or you may opt to install a powered unit which allows you to operate the dehumidifier without using electricity (or fuel) to run the cooling and heating systems. A self-powered model pays dividends during the spring and fall seasons when you don’t really need to run the AC or heat, but you would still like to lower the humidity in your home.

How a Whole-House Dehumidifier Works

A whole-house dehumidifier removes moisture from indoor air as it circulates through the duct system. A humidistat monitors humidity levels and signals the dehumidifier to turn on or off, much the same as a thermostat monitors temperatures and signals the cooling or heating system to power on or off.

A whole-house dehumidifier is fully automatic, and there is very little maintenance involved. Water is drained to a floor drain or sump, so you don’t have the daily monitoring and maintenance that is required for portable units, such as cleaning, refilling, etc.

Dehumidification for Health, Comfort & Savings

High indoor humidity levels promote the growth and spread of allergens and contaminants, such as black mold, bacteria, fungi, and dust mites. According to the EPA, indoor humidity levels should be between 30 and 50 percent for optimal comfort, inhibiting the spread of contaminants, and to help prevent musty and stale odors.

Optimal humidity levels also prevent damage caused by excessive moisture to porous possessions, home structure and furnishings, including:

  • Wooden cabinetry and flooring
  • Door frames
  • Molding
  • Musical instruments
  • Paintings
  • Photographs
  • Files and documents
  • Leather clothing and accessories

And you can’t overlook the energy savings when it comes to installing a whole-house dehumidifier in central New Jersey. When indoor air is at optimal levels, it feels more comfortable and can seem cooler than air of the same temperature at higher humidity levels. This may prompt you to turn up the thermostat a few degrees to save cooling expenses during the summer. In fact, according to U.S. Department of Energy statistics, you could save up to 10 percent on cooling costs by adjusting the thermostat a few degrees for energy savings.

Whole-House or Portable Dehumidifiers?

While portable dehumidifiers are readily available at any home-improvement store, portable units are not as effective as whole-house dehumidifiers. It’s like comparing whole-house cooling or heating to a window AC or portable heater. Portable units are fine for confined spaces, such as a small basement or a small closet space, but to enjoy the full benefits of comfort, health, and lower cooling expenses, a whole-house dehumidifier installation in Somerset is unbeatable.
