If you've lived in the Pikeville, KY area for at least one summer, you'll know that conditions can become extremely humid when the heat rises. High humidity makes warm temperatures much less comfortable, and although there isn't much you can do about this when you're outside, you have much more control inside your house. Lowering indoor humidity will significantly help you cut down on air conditioning bills and allow you and your family to relax in a more comfortable environment.
There are a number of other advantages that a whole-house dehumidifier can provide for your home. But to be able to enjoy these benefits, you must contact professionals to handle the installation of the dehumidifier, as well as any repair or maintenance services the system may require. American Heating & Cooling is the place to call when you are ready to have a great whole-house dehumidifier installed.
Call on the indoor air quality professionals at American Heating & Cooling when you're looking for dehumidifier services in Pikeville, KY or the surrounding areas.
High levels of moisture in the air of a home create a number of issues. The most noticeable is that high humidity makes warm temperatures feel substantially worse. The higher volume of moisture in the air slows down the body's ability to release heat through perspiration. The result is more heat remains trapped inside the body. If you have a dehumidifier in your house to balance the relative humidity between 30% and 50%, it will make everyone in the home feel cooler during summer temperatures. This also means you'll need to run the air conditioning system less, resulting in energy savings.
A dehumidifier is also a way to protect health inside a house. Humid conditions make it much more likely for mold and mildew to start growing indoor, especially within the ventilation system. Toxic mold spores can create illnesses in a home, especially for people who suffer from asthma and allergies.
Finally, using a whole-house dehumidifier will help defend it from water damage. Mildew will start to eat through drywall, and excess water will lead to wood rot through the home. You can eliminate these problems by attacking the source with a dehumidifier.
Our team of indoor air quality professionals do more than install whole-house dehumidifiers. We also handle the occasionally necessary job of repairing them.

Here's something important to know when it comes to dehumidifiers: if you have the wrong one installed, or it is improperly installed, you can end up with a system that dries out your air too much. Dry air in a home is as much a problem as humid air, so make sure that you rely on experienced indoor air quality experts to handle selecting a dehumidifier and integrating it into your HVAC system. In Pikeville, KY, you'll find the team you can trust at American Heating & Cooling. We provide complete dehumidifier (and humidifier) services so that you can enjoy balanced humidity throughout the year.
