How Do Dehumidifiers Work?

Dehumidifiers are straightforward yet ingenious devices designed to maintain the relative humidity within your living spaces by removing excess moisture from the air. These units draw warm, humid air into their coils via a fan. The air then condenses into water droplets as it cools on contact with the refrigerated coils. This water is collected in a tank or drained away while the dry air is cooled and recirculated back into the room. This continuous cycle significantly reduces the humidity levels, making your environment more comfortable and less conducive to allergens like mold and dust mites.

Whole-Home Dehumidifiers vs. Portable Models

Choosing a whole-house dehumidifier over a portable one brings several benefits. Firstly, whole-house dehumidifiers are seamlessly integrated into your existing HVAC system, providing consistent moisture control throughout the house without needing individual unit management. This is far more convenient and maintains uniformity in humidity levels throughout your space that portable dehumidifiers can’t achieve.

Additionally, whole-house dehumidifiers are much more eco-friendly, as they utilize the existing ductwork to remove moisture from the air, rather than using a standalone unit that requires its own power source. A whole-home dehumidifier is also more robust in performance. It is designed to handle larger volumes of air and offer better control over humidity levels since they are connected directly to your thermostat.

While a portable unit might seem more cost-effective, a whole-house option will save you more money in the long run by reducing your energy consumption and preventing pricey repairs caused by excess moisture. Plus, with our affordable dehumidifier services, transparent quotes, and flexible financing, you can reap the benefits of a new dehumidifier without breaking the bank.

Dehumidifier Installation

Installing a dehumidifier is not just about plugging it in and turning it on. It involves thoroughly assessing your home’s layout, existing HVAC unit, and specific moisture control needs. At SGI Heating and Cooling, we ensure each installation is tailored to combat your home’s humidity challenges effectively. Our experts are trained to integrate the dehumidifier seamlessly with your heating and cooling systems, providing pristine comfort and air quality for your family.

Our Dehumidifier Installation Process

Our installation process is meticulous and designed to cater to the unique needs of each household. It begins with a detailed evaluation of your home’s interior climate and a discussion of your specific needs. Following this, we design a system configuration that best fits your space and budget. Installation is executed by our certified professionals, who guarantee that every component functions harmoniously. Post-installation, we test the system comprehensively to confirm its controlling humidity like a charm.

Dehumidifiers Demand Professional Installation

While tackling a DIY dehumidifier installation might be tempting, professional help is crucial for several reasons. Firstly, improper installation can lead to significant issues such as inadequate moisture removal, increased energy consumption, and even premature system failure. Our certified crew sizes the unit correctly and places it in a prime spot for best performance and longevity.

Common Dehumidifier Dilemmas

Dehumidifiers, like any household appliance, can encounter problems. Some can be obvious, while others are more hard to spot. These challenges often stem from units being improperly sized for the area or poorly maintained. Keep an eye and ear out for the following signs your dehumidifier has gone kaput:

  • No Collected Water: This could be due to the room temperature being too low, the humidity level being set too high, or performance issues.
  • Overly Noisy Operation: Rattling or buzzing noises might indicate a loose part inside the unit or an issue with the compressor.
  • Frost Buildup on Coils: Typically occurs when the room temperature is too cold for the dehumidifier to work as it should.
  • Leaking Water: This can be caused by a cracked water bucket, improper seating of the water bucket, or clogs in the hose connection of units with direct drain features.
  • Foul Odors: Sometimes, mold or mildew may develop inside the dehumidifier, causing unpleasant smells.
  • Runs Constantly Without Cycling Off: This issue may arise if the humidistat is faulty or if the dehumidifier’s capacity is too low for the size of the space.
  • Failure to Start: This could be due to electrical issues, a tripped circuit breaker, or the use of an extension cord that is not suited for the unit’s power needs.
  • Automatic Shut-off Malfunction: If the dehumidifier doesn’t shut off when the water bucket is full, it might indicate sensor or switch issues.
  • Poor Airflow: A dirty or clogged air filter can restrict airflow, significantly reducing the effectiveness of the dehumidifier.
