Eliminate Excess Moisture for Better Indoor Air Quality
Excess moisture in your home can be noticeable, and you may smell musty odors, see mold growing, or feel clammy. High humidity can also negatively impact your health. Christian Heating and Air Conditioning can install an Aprilaire® or Ultra-Aire home dehumidifier so you can achieve better indoor air quality and healthy home comfort.
Dehumidifiers installed in your HVAC system keep the humidity in your home under control by automatically adjusting the humidity levels accordingly. It will pull moisture from the air before the air conditioner circulates it through your air ducts. When you pair a dehumidifier with an air conditioning system, you can easily adjust your home’s temperature and humidity level.

Why Install a Home Dehumidifier
There are many reasons why installing a home dehumidifier is beneficial for any home. Your home is a place where you should feel comfortable, while also not having to worry about indoor air contaminants that can trigger allergies and asthma symptoms. As a homeowner, you want to make the right decisions about installations and additions, and a home dehumidifier possesses numerous benefits well worth noting.
Comfort Your Home
When excess humidity is removed from indoor air, you’ll feel cooler! A humid home can become sticky, muggy, and uncomfortable to live in. A dehumidifier can make the air you’ve living in much cooler.
Keep You and Your Family Healthy
Excess humidity in the home creates conditions that are perfect for mold and insects like dust mites. These issues can affect people with allergies, asthma, and other lung-related conditions. A dehumidifier will help by effectively reducing dust in your home. When moisture is reduced from the air, bacteria and dust mites can no longer spread.
Protect Your Property
High humidity and excess moisture in your home can damage personal belongings such as wood floors, musical instruments, photos, electronics, and books! A dehumidifier can help to preserve your prized possessions.
Commit to Energy Efficiency
Overcooling your home to combat the humidity can cause an increase in energy and utility bills. Running a dehumidifier will reduce the humidity in the air, thus allowing you to not need to run the AC as much. This will save you money since not as much energy will need to be consumed.
Improve Indoor Air Quality Using Other Methods
High humidity is not the only factor that can affect your indoor air quality. Various issues that arise with poor filtration and dry air include bloody noses, chapped lips, cold and flu-like symptoms, cracking wood and furniture, and so on. For this reason, the professional HVAC technicians at Christian also install air purifiers, humidifiers, and provide duct cleaning.
Active air purification is an alternative that is superior to air filtration. Christian knows this, and our experts recommend this method to effectively utilize ultraviolet light to reduce indoor air pollution. This air purification process involves the use of UV rays and is often employed in hospitals for disinfection. The Series3 model that we install can integrate with your current HVAC system, and it will kill bacteria, viruses, mold, dust mites, and many other harmful contaminants.
Dry indoor air is a common byproduct of heating a home. That dry air can lead to eye and respiratory irritation, nosebleeds, dry skin, sore throat, and other potentially serious health issues. Having a humidifier integrated into your home’s heating system will add the perfect amount of moisture into the air you’re breathing, which will completely change the comfort of your living space.
Originally designed for the International Space Station, air scrubbers are a more recent innovation to become adapted for residential use. The air scrubber is a device that utilizes ultraviolet light as a scrubbing process, which removes allergens, air pollutants, mold, and other contaminants from the air. An air scrubber installation will result in a cleaner, healthier, more efficient home.
It is very important for homeowners to take good care of their HVAC system. A good habit to get into is replacing your air filter on a regular basis. This not only will keep everything working as it should but will also help to keep your energy bills down. Homeowners should replace old HVAC air filters at least once every three months and ideally whenever they are visually dirty.

The warmer seasons not only bring hot air but also humid air. An air conditioner does remove moisture but often cannot keep up when the humidity is high. By installing a dehumidifier, you will breathe easier and be more comfortable. Your home will feel cooler at a higher temperature, and your AC will not have to work nearly as hard, which will save you maintenance and repair costs in the future.
