How and air conditioners work together

dehumidifierThe weather can be unbearably hot during the Texas summer and when you factor in the humidity, it can get even hotter. The combination of the two makes having an AC unit imperative for anyone living in the Metroplex. Without the ac unit, you will be uncomfortable in your home and it can even be a health hazard. In order to keep your cool, a combination of a whole house dehumidifier and the ac unit can do the trick. Select Air can provide you with what you need in this regard.

Understanding Humidity

There is no doubt that the heat in the Texas summer can be unbearable but when you add moisture to it, that is when it truly gets uncomfortable. Because humidity is moisture, it holds on to the heat for a longer amount of time and the air around us feels warmer as a result.

Considering the Benefits of a Dehumidifier

Although the air-conditioning unit in your home may be able to keep up with the heat and humidity, you will find it much more convenient if you use a dehumidifier. It helps to remove the moisture from the air before it circulates through your AC system. In turn, this protects the air-conditioning system and it does so in multiple ways.

Longer Life - Since less effort is needed by the air-conditioning unit to keep the air at a comfortable temperature, it is going to last for a longer amount of time. If you try to handle both the humidity and heat with your AC unit, it can cause excessive stress.

Efficiency - Obviously, if your AC unit is working more to keep up with both the humidity and the heat, it is going to make it less efficient. This is going to make a difference in your monthly energy bill, so adding a whole home dehumidifier can make a difference in how much you are spending every month.

Allergens - Do you have a problem with allergies? If you do, a dehumidifier in the home can help to reduce the problems which include mildew, mold, fungus and dust mites.

Odor - A problem with mold and mildew is not only going to be a health hazard, it can also cause a difficulty with strong odors. A musty smell in the home will be a thing of the past when you have an entire home dehumidifier installed.

Protect Your Stuff - And additional problem that can occur with mold and mildew is for it to accumulate on your household belongings and to ruin them. This may include anything from photographs and books to furniture.

Cleaner System - Since humidity can cause debris to accumulate on the components of your AC system, it will be less of a difficulty when a dehumidifier is installed.

Of course, if you do decide to use your air conditioner, it will remove some of the humidity from the air but it does have limitations. When the humidity is high in the home, it is going to make you uncomfortable, regardless of how cool the air is. In addition, running the AC for long amounts of time can lead to the fast breakdown of the unit and expensive repair bills.
