In Florida, a dehumidifier can do you a world of good. Humidity levels are often out of control here, and it makes the air inside and out feel a lot warmer than it actually is. Sweat has a hard time evaporating from your body, and most people describe feeling hot and sticky when relative humidity levels are above about 50%.
Get moisture out of the air with the right dehumidification equipment. Check out our guide below on how to choose the right dehumidifier for your home.
Don’t Choose a Portable Unit
A small, point-of-use dehumidifier system is not very helpful when you’re a homeowner with plenty of square footage that all needs to be kept comfortable. This only removes moisture from a small part of the home, which is why we recommend whole-home dehumidifiers. High levels of humidity could leave to water damage or mold growth, and that’s not something that’s worth risking.
Find One Properly Suited to Your Home
Whole-house dehumidifiers are installed within the entire HVAC system to work together with your air conditioner. And just like an air conditioner, you want to find one that is the right size for your home. If it is not properly sized, it could run into a lot of problems early on, like not draining properly or short cycling. Consult with skilled, experienced technicians for your dehumidifier installation and this is something you won’t have to worry about on your own.
Look for the Features You Need
Not all dehumidifiers are the same. Most likely, you’ll want one that integrates into your HVAC system controls so that you can control it independently or together with the AC. This may require a thermostat upgrade. Having a built-in hygrometer is helpful and convenient, and a drain connection kit means you don’t have to worry about it becoming full.
