Dehumidifier Services in Lexington, Kentucky
Does your home feel muggy for months on end? Does it seem like you’re never dry, even after toweling off? Even though the air conditioner is probably running constantly to keep up with the summer heat, often, it can’t quite keep up with the seemingly endless humidity of summer.
To assist your AC in combating high humidity levels, consider installing a whole-home dehumidifier. These systems work similarly to an AC. Refrigerant is circulated through a coil that attracts moisture through evaporation and then removes the trapped moisture.
With a focus on removing moisture from the air rather than just cooling the air, dehumidifiers are more efficient at removing water from the air than standard AC units. Reduced humidity levels improve indoor air quality and keep you comfortable throughout th

Benefits of Whole-Home Dehumidifiers
Why is humidity so uncomfortable in hot weather? The reason is that the excess moisture in the air can hold more heat, making it difficult for us to cool off with sweat.
With sub-optimal perspiration, even more heat is trapped in the body, making temperatures feel even hotter by up to eight to ten degrees Fahrenheit. When the relative humidity is balanced between 30 to 60 percent, the edge of the heat is taken off, and it’s easier to cool down.
Additionally, when humidity soars, moisture gathers on various surfaces and can cause damage. When wood swells with moisture, it can suffer wood rot or move out of place. This can lead to water damage, wood rot, mildew, mold, and more.
Mold prefers hot, moist environments and thrives in these conditions. They release toxic spores in the air to spread through the house, which is dangerous to breathe. Mold is especially prone to growing in your HVAC system, just out of sight along the coils and ducts.
Installing a dehumidifier will bring the humidity back into line and cut mildew and mold spores off at the source. You also protect your home from water damage and swelling.
