Enjoy the Comfort of a Whole Home Dehumidifier
Excess moisture indoors is bad for your health and can cause damage to furniture, hardwood floors, and the structure of the house or building itself. If you’re experiencing high humidity levels, Horn recommends reducing and controlling that moisture by installing a whole-home dehumidification system, and we have provided dehumidifier installation for residential and commercial customers throughout Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties in Pennsylvania for more than 40 years.

What Is a Whole-Home Dehumidifier and How Does It Work?
A whole-house dehumidifier integrates with your central HVAC system in order to reduce moisture levels throughout the residence or business as opposed to just particular indoor locations. You set the relative humidity target via a thermostat, and a hygrometer measures RH and enables and disables the dehumidification process as needed. Like an air conditioner, a dehumidifier uses refrigerant and has condenser and evaporator coils. As the moist air comes into contact with the cooled coils, condensation occurs, which removes the moisture from the air. That condensation is collected in a tray, and it drains to the outside often using the same condensation line installed for the air conditioning system.
The Benefits of a Whole-Home Dehumidifier
There are many great reasons to have Horn perform dehumidifier installation for your home or business. It’s important to understand that RH shapes the way you perceive temperature. In other words, air conditioning will be more comfortable for you at an optimal RH. While air conditioning does remove moisture from the air to a degree, this is a byproduct, and it’s not particularly good at it. With a dehumidifier, you’ll be comfortable at a higher temperature. Your cooling costs will be lower, and you’ll reduce wear on your air conditioner thus lowering your long-term costs. An optimal RH also makes an indoor environment less prone to mold and bacteria and even inhospitable to dust mites.

Portable vs. Whole-Home Dehumidifiers
The main advantage of a portable dehumidifier is the lower initial cost. If you don’t have a moisture problem and have a small household, then a portable unit may be a practical option. Typically, however, whole-home systems are superior. You can’t deal with a fundamental moisture problem with a dehumidifier that only affects a room or two. If you have a family, having a portable unit in each room being used generally isn’t practical. Portable units require more maintenance, and while whole-house systems are more expensive up front, they are often more cost-effective over the life of the equipment.
