An Air Conditioner Plus a Dehumidifier Is a Cool Combo

When summer goes from sunny and fun to hot and sticky, keep your cool by doubling up on comfort systems—a high-efficiency Bryant® air conditioner plus a whole-home dehumidifier from S&R Heating, Cooling & Appliance Repair will help you breeze through any heat wave.

Why an Air Conditioner Isn’t Enough

Warm air naturally holds more moisture. Cooling it down with an air conditioner will remove some humidity, which makes the air feel cooler than its actual temperature. But when it’s really humid, an air conditioner alone can’t keep up with the excess moisture. Instead of being comfortable, the air will often feel damp and muggy. Besides that clammy feeling, you may also notice more allergy and asthma symptoms—or get a dreaded summer cold—because microorganisms and germs thrive in higher humidity. A dehumidifier that works with your cooling system allows you to control air moisture content to an exact, ideal percentage.

Take Control of Air Quality With a Dehumidifier

Being truly comfortable in your own home is about more than just air temperature—air quality matters, too. The experts at S&R Heating have helped thousands of families feel the difference. Many people don’t realize how much humidity affects them until we’ve installed the right unit—then they feel better, breathe easier, sleep sounder, and even save energy.

Dehumidifiers Bring Home More Benefits

Maintaining the proper humidity levels—between 35 and 50 percent—is good for people and for property. Homes with high humidity often have one or more problems as a direct result of poor air quality—musty odors, damaging mold and mildew, warped wood floors and furniture, and water damage from condensation. Considering that these can lead to costly repairs, investing in a dehumidifier sooner rather than later is good for you, your home, and your budget.
