More than ever before, lung health is at the forefront of people’s minds. There are many elements that go into protecting your lungs but few are as important as keeping good quality air in your indoor environments. One of the main elements of indoor air that contribute to its quality is the level of humidity it contains. Too much humidity can worsen respiratory conditions and contribute to mold and fungus growth inside your home. Too little humidity can dry out your skin and nasal passages making infections more likely and causing allergies. At Alliance Expert Services, we specialize in helping you improve the air quality in your home or business with dehumidifier insulations in Oklahoma City.
If too little humidity is the problem, we can also help with that. Humidifier installation can help add necessary moisture to your home, keeping you comfortable year-round.
How Do Dehumidifiers Work?
A dehumidifier uses a simple principle of science to remove excess moisture from the air just like your air conditioner does. Every time you have a cold drink on a hot day, you may notice the condensation that builds upon the cold surface of the cup. This is because warm, moist air that hits a cold surface causes the water to condense. A dehumidifier works the same way. A compressor chills a coil that moist air is blown across. The moisture condenses on the coil and is swept away down a drain.
An AC dehumidifier works automatically to keep humidity within a preset range much like a thermostat works to keep the temperature stable. The benefit of a whole-home dehumidifier is that you never have to worry about emptying a reservoir or adjusting the humidity sensor; it all happens automatically.
Common Issues With Dehumidifiers
Since dehumidifiers operate similarly to air conditioners, they share some of the same problems. This can include:
- Compressor Issues: Compressors can fail which prevents the dehumidifier from condensing water from the air.
- Overflowing Tank: When moisture is removed from the air, it needs a place to go. If the filing tank is damaged or overflowing, it can stop the unit from working.
- Filter Issues: Clogged filters can prevent good airflow. If the filter on your dehumidifier is an issue, it can prevent dehumidified air from making its way back into the home.
- Coil Issues: Either the coils are frozen or damaged, either way, it can prevent the unit from circulating air after moisture has been removed.
Luckily, Alliance Expert Services specializes in AC dehumidifier repair in Oklahoma City. Additionally, we can install a new whole-home dehumidifier and maintain it in top working order so you never have to worry about your dehumidifier needing service or high levels of humidity in your space.
