Let’s talk about your air conditioning services here in Raleigh. Even if you’ve only lived here for one single summer, you know that our summers here are hot and you’re going to need an amazing air conditioner to put your home in the right place. But let’s say that your air conditioner is in tip-top shape and you’re still not getting the service that you need. What can you do?

We would suggest adopting a dehumidifier in your Raleigh, NC home. We know that this is a little off the beaten path when you’re thinking of ways to cool off your home, but trust us, it’s probably the difference that you’re looking for. We’ll walk you through everything that you need to know below, just keep reading.

What’s a Dehumidifier?

We like to start with the basics around here, so let’s start with defining what a dehumidifier is. A lot of people think they know what a dehumidifier is because they’ve experienced humidifiers on a small scale. Maybe you’ve popped a humidifier in your bedroom to help you get through a particularly nasty cold. You might think that a dehumidifier runs on the same principles, it just operates with the opposite purpose. This couldn’t be further from the case.

We recommend whole-house dehumidifiers for homes here in Raleigh because it’s hard to beat the humidity. Whole-house dehumidifiers are installed directly at the source of your HVAC system so that the dehumidification process becomes an engrained step in your home’s cooling process. Dehumidifiers collect the excess moisture and then drain it away—the process is pretty simple and actually pretty similar to an air conditioning problem. If you want to make sure that you’re getting the right dehumidifier work, make sure that you schedule an appointment with us.

“How Can One Help Me?”

So how can a dehumidifier help you? Maybe you’re thinking that the humidity in your home is only a problem for a few weeks or even a month throughout the summer and you can tough it out without adopting a system into your home. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider a dehumidifier:

  • They Keep You Cool: The weather feels so much hotter when it’s humid out because the excess moisture in the air makes it harder for your body to sweat and sweating is your body’s personal AC system. A dehumidifier removes that excess humidity from the air and alleviates this problem for you.
  • They Lower Your Bills: You’ll rely on your air conditioner less if you have a dehumidifier in your home. This means less energy expenditure and lower energy bills as a result.
  • They Help Out Your AC: We alluded this in the title of this blog, so we’re going to expand on it here, your dehumidifier helps you feel cool even when the temperatures are higher. This means that you’ll use your air conditioner less or just at milder temperatures which alleviates the strain and helps your AC last long into the future.
