Dehumidification

Here in Missouri, we’re all too familiar with humidity. And while it may be impossible to avoid outdoor humidity during the hot summer months, your home should provide a cool escape. If it feels like the outdoor humidity is following you inside, call the pros at SmartHouse Heating and Cooling. We install Aprilaire whole-home dehumidifiers that automatically remove excess moisture from your indoor air.  

What Does Dehumidification Mean? 

Unlike humidifiers, which add moisture to the air, dehumidification is the process of removing excess moisture from the air. There are several dehumidification methods, but whole-home dehumidification is the most effective. Whole-home dehumidifiers are connected to your ductwork and can easily treat the air in every room in your home.

Aprilaire whole-home dehumidifiers installed by SmartHouse Heating and Cooling are high-capacity systems that offer exceptional humidity control. They feature intuitive, digital controls, so you can easily adjust the settings, and a sturdy, leak-proof design. Aprilaire dehumidifiers are designed and manufactured in the United States and are backed by a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty. 

What Are the Benefits of a Whole-Home Dehumidifier?

Whole-home dehumidifiers are a better solution to high indoor humidity than the dehumidification your AC provides,  and are superior to portable dehumidifiers. Whole-home dehumidifiers automatically regulate humidity levels throughout your entire home, without the need to empty messy water trays.  Whole-home dehumidifiers provided many benefits, including:

  • A More Comfortable Home
    A whole-home dehumidifier will remove excess moisture from your indoor air and help you avoid that hot, sticky feeling.
  • Better Indoor Air QualityMold, mildew, and bacteria thrive in hot, humid environments. Installing a dehumidifier will keep these indoor air pollutants under control, helping your family stay healthy and preventing musty smells throughout your home.
  • Lower Energy Bills
    Because dry air feels cooler than humid air, you may be able to run your AC less often when you have a whole-home dehumidifier installed, leading to lower energy costs.
  • Protection for Your Home & Belongings
    When warm, moisture-heavy air settles on cool surfaces in your home, it condenses into water, which can then cause damage to your home’s building materials, your furniture, artwork, and more. A dehumidification system will prevent this condensation from happening, keeping your home and belongings safe from water damage.
