How Does a Dehumidifier Work?

Tuesday, June 6th, 2023

If someone were to ask you if a dehumidifier and an air conditioner were different, you’d probably say a resounding “yes.” That’s correct, these two systems work differently, but how different are they? That’s a question that not many people know the answer to.

Dehumidifiers and air conditioners are very similar. They can both remove moisture from the air through condensation, but there’s a key difference in their functionality which makes them better at different jobs. A dehumidifier doesn’t do a very good job at cooling a house, whereas an air conditioner doesn’t do an efficient job of removing moisture. Both of these systems have a more specialized approach to their work.

So, if you notice that your air is cool but still humid, you might need to call our team for dehumidifier repair in Tallahassee, FL.

A Dehumidifier Definitely Helps!

Monday, May 8th, 2023

Dehumidifiers are tools, just like anything else we use in our daily lives. It’s not so much about what it does that makes it a hot topic of conversation, it’s how we use it that makes the difference.

As most of us know, a dehumidifier absorbs the moisture from the atmosphere and collects it so it can be dumped out. This is fairly straightforward, but it’s essential to several different things going on in your home.

For instance, without moisture in the atmosphere, it’s hard for temperatures to feel humid and muggy. Also, mold and fungus have a harder time growing in dry atmospheres meaning that dehumidifiers in Tallahassee, FL are essential for combatting an infestation.

Today, we’d like to give you a few reasons why a dehumidifier might be such an important addition to your home comfort systems. And luckily enough, we provide dehumidifier installations at an affordable rate if you’re ready to purchase one by the end of this blog.

The Problem With Leaking Ducts

Monday, March 13th, 2023

What if every time you tried to take a drink of water on a hot day, 30% of it leaked out of the glass before it hit your lips? Wouldn’t that make you angry? And then, if you tried to eat a delicious sandwich for lunch, 30% of it fell right into the trash before you got a taste. Again, another obnoxious thing that would make anyone livid.

Well, those might sound fantastical, but in the HVAC world they’re not so unrealistic. For instance, a set of air ducts in disrepair could be leaking up to 30% of the conditioned air that’s created by your air conditioner (or heater) and losing it before it reaches the rooms of your home. You might not be able to see it because it’s being leaked elsewhere and because it’s air, but it could be happening. It might be time to call a professional for duct sealant in Tallahassee, FL.
