When I moved down south, I was prepared for the challenges of the heat, but i knew an efficient and powerful air conditioner would be a requirement, and I expected to run the cooling plan just about all year round. I failed to appreciate, however, the challenges caused by high humidity, and when there’s an excess of moisture in the air, lowering the control equipment doesn’t really help, then the air conditioner simply works harder and uses up way more energy. I pay higher electric bills and the beach house is overly chilly however not comfortable. That sticky feeling doesn’t go away. When I got fatigued of condensation running down the window panes and mold growing on the sills, I finally called a local Heating & Air Conditioning dealer to ask about dehumidifiers. I wanted something that wouldn’t need constant service. I hoped to avoid emptying a reservoir every morning. The Heating & Air Conditioning dealer proposed a whole-beach house dehumidifier which installed right into the air handler of the air conditioner. The dehumidifier extracts moisture as the air passes through. It operates quietly and requires only annual upkeepâ€¦ Since investing in the dehumidifier, I’ve been able to raise the temperature setting on the control unit. My energy costs are significantly lower and yet my beach house is far more comfortable. I sleep better at night and experience fewer headaches. I have more energy while in the morning and don’t need to disinfect as often, however plus, the smaller workload for the air conditioner should help to avoid malfunctions and extend service life. The dehumidifier has made a big difference in my budget, air quality, comfort and overall enjoyment of my home.
