Dehumidifiers in Clearwater, FL and the Surrounding Areas
Everyone who lives in Florida knows the extent to which high humidity affects comfort and your indoor air quality. There’s a reason the phrase “at least it’s a dry heat” tends to provoke eye-rolling and dirty looks when uttered aloud. High humidity is an issue for more than comfort, though. Chronically high humidity in a home can cause serious problems if allowed to continue unchecked.
For that reason, Balanced Air, Inc. offers comprehensive dehumidifier services throughout Clearwater, FL. If you need dehumidifier services of any kind, contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our technicians. We can find the best dehumidifier system to meet your needs.
Why Is a Dehumidifier Necessary?
As we said above, chronically high humidity is much more than just an inconvenience. It makes it harder for your body to cool itself by raising the evaporation point of liquids, including sweat. It also provides one of the necessary environmental factors for rampant mold growth. In the darker areas of your home, like in the walls and under the sinks, mold growth can occur extremely quickly when combined with humid air. Many kinds of mold are detrimental to your health when inhaled, and some of them can even be life–threatening.
Also, most furniture and other wooden objects don’t do well with chronic humidity. If your air is humid often, it can start to warp these parts of your home. Even the walls can be weakened by this condition. That’s why it’s important to have a dehumidifier installed.
Dehumidifier Installation and Replacement
Regardless of which dehumidifier you choose to install in your home, installing it properly can be a bit tricky. The system needs to be positioned properly so as to treat as much of the home’s air as possible, usually at a specific junction in the ducts. You need to make sure that you find the best contractors available to handle your dehumidifier installation for you, or it may not end up being as effective as you need it to be. We provide excellent dehumidifier installation and replacement services in Clearwater, FL and the surrounding areas.
Dehumidifier Repair and Maintenance
It’s a good idea to call for maintenance for your dehumidifier every year or two, just to make sure any potential problems developing are dealt with and that the system is operating properly. Even with regular maintenance, though, you will likely have to have the system repaired at some point.
Take notice if your dehumidifier doesn’t seem to be working very well, or is otherwise exhibiting strange behavior that it doesn’t normally. Those symptoms are often a sign that the system needs professional help in some way. The faster you can react to those signs, the more damage you can likely prevent.
