Trusted HVAC Specialist Since 1981

Jackson's Dehumidifier Experts

Dehumidifiers, as their name suggests, work to decrease the humidity levels in a designated area, whether it’s a commercial space, an attic, a bedroom, or a basement. By minimizing the moisture content in the air, these systems alleviate that uncomfortable, “sticky” feeling and help to eliminate musty odors. Additionally, they lessen the strain on your air conditioning unit, particularly during damp weather conditions. While portable dehumidifiers are an option, many homeowners prefer the long-lasting and comprehensive impact of a whole-house dehumidifier.

Home Comfort Tips

Home dehumidifiers are essential appliances designed to reduce excess moisture levels in indoor environments. They work by drawing in humid air, extracting moisture, and then releasing drier air back into the room. These devices are particularly useful in regions with high humidity levels or during humid seasons, helping to prevent mold growth, musty odors, and discomfort. Portable dehumidifiers are versatile options for single rooms or smaller spaces, while whole-house dehumidifiers integrate with existing HVAC systems to regulate humidity throughout the entire home. By maintaining optimal humidity levels, dehumidifiers contribute to improved indoor air quality and a more comfortable living environment.

Identifying air quality issues isn’t always as straightforward as noticing when your AC or furnace stops working. Often, these problems linger unnoticed until they escalate. Here are some signs that your home may require moisture reduction:

  1. Persistent musty or mildew odor.
  2. Presence of mold spots in corners or on ceilings.
  3. Creaking cabinets, floors, or doors.
  4. Condensation forming on walls or interior windows.
  5. Peeling wallpaper or paint.
  6. Excessive runoff during springtime.

A whole-house dehumidifier operates by drawing in air from all areas of your home, extracting moisture from it, and then redistributing it through your ductwork. The collected water is either stored in a reservoir or drained outside, minimizing maintenance needs and the risk of overflow. This straightforward process offers several significant household advantages:

  1. Reduction in mildew and mold growth.
  2. Elimination of musty odors and smells.
  3. Preservation of wood furniture, reducing the likelihood of warping.
  4. Ability to maintain comfort at higher thermostat settings.
  5. Reduction of allergy-triggering particles in your living environment.
  6. Improvement in asthma or respiratory symptoms.
  7. Decreased strain on your air conditioner during the summer months.

With such wide-ranging benefits, installing a dehumidifier can enhance the living conditions of nearly every home in Jackson.

Here’s a concise breakdown of what to expect when installing a whole-house dehumidifier in Jackson:

  1. Assessment: Our HVAC technician thoroughly inspects your current HVAC system to identify any potential issues that could affect the dehumidifier’s performance.

  2. Preparation: Once your HVAC system is cleared for installation, the technician brings in the dehumidifier. Typically, it’s positioned near the air handler of your AC unit.

  3. Installation: The dehumidifier is connected to either your existing return duct or newly installed ductwork, depending on your home’s HVAC setup.

  4. Testing: After installation, the system is activated and tested for efficiency. Any adjustments needed for optimal performance are addressed promptly.

  5. Guidance: Our technician provides detailed instructions on operating the dehumidifier and offers valuable usage tips to maximize its effectiveness.

  6. Satisfaction Guarantee: With your new dehumidifier in operation, you can enjoy drier air and peace of mind, backed by our hassle-free satisfaction guarantee.

Home Maintenance Plans To Keep Your HVAC Equipment Running Strong

Frequently Asked Questions

Would you ask this question about oil changes? Probably not… As complex pieces of machinery, your air conditioner and furnace are not that different from your car. They need regular maintenance to function efficiently and routine inspections can ensure your equipment stays running strong and issue free year round. Annual maintenance inspections will catch small problems before they become major issues and will give you the peace of mind that you have done all you can to protect your investment on your home heating and cooling systems.

You’ll typically pay $80 to $200 for an A/C or furnace tune-up in Jackson. The amount depends on a variety of items including the number and size of your air conditioning units. Accessibility can also be a factor. While this may seem like a decent chunk of change, it’s a lot cheaper than paying for AC repair or replacement in Jackson. For savings opportunities, we suggest checking out our Comfort Club.

You hear your air conditioner buzzing along, but the number on the thermostat keeps climbing. When you check a nearby vent, you find the air from it is temperate at best. The lack of cold air has three likely causes:

  • Condenser Issues: Condensers in Jackson are typically located outside the home. They can sometimes get blocked by plants and other debris. Seasonal tree shedding is notorious. Clean it off. Your equipment should also be kept at least three feet from other objects.
  • Dirty Filters: You’re meant to change your furnace filter on a monthly basis. This is true even during AC season. Have you been doing that? If not, go check your filter. For anything darker than light grey, replace it with a new one. After changing the filter, give the unit time to adjust.
  • Evaporator Coil Issues: Filled with refrigerant, your evaporator coil is responsible for pulling the heat out of the air. If you see ice on it, the coil is likely the cause of your HVAC problems.

If these changes don’t help, give us a call at (517) 879-2049.

A lot of clients ask us this question. They want to know how much a new system or repair will cost before we evaluate your situation. Because of the numerous factors involved in heating and cooling systems, it’s nearly impossible to accurately provide estimates until we are on site and able to diagnose the problem. Once our technicians have been able to properly diagnose your issue, they will provide you with an itemized list of what needs to be repaired and will provide you with a final price to repair your HVAC issue.

With your typical HVAC system counting for roughly half of your energy consumption, you should always be looking for ways to cut down on energy consumption. If your electric or heating bills are giving you the blues, consider:

  • Upgrading Your System: Though this may seem like a counterintuitive way to save money, this move often pays for itself. Newer units not only cost less to run but also tend to be more environmentally friendly.
  • Opt for an Energy Efficient Cooling System: Going for an ENERGY STAR unit can save you hundreds of dollars each year according to data from the US Department of Energy. Rebates are often available to make new installations more affordable.
  • Landscape Around Your Unit: Make sure that the area around your air conditioner is clear of brush and debris. Plants should be kept two to three feet away from the equipment. You should also turn off the unit every so often to hose down the sides. These obstacles can make it more difficult for your unit to perform at an acceptable level.
  • Keep Your Curtains Closed: To limit summer cooling costs in Jackson, make sure to keep your curtains and windows closed. The less heat introduced into your rooms, the more efficiently your air conditioner can do its job.

Below are a few quick tips to help you navigate no heat issues at your home before calling a technician to diagnose your issue:

  • Is power getting to your furnace or heater? Is a fuse or circuit breaker tripped? Make sure your power switch is in the ON position.
  • When was the last time you swapped out your filter? If it’s been a while, try installing a new filter first. This can solve a lot of heating problems.
  • Verify your thermostat is set to “heat” and not “cool”. If you notice the display is dim, try swapping out the batteries on the back of the unit.
  • Is there snow or other debris blocking your outdoor vent? If so, remove the obstruction. This will allow your system to work more effectively.

If you still don’t have heat, give us a call right away at (517) 879-2049 and we will get a technician to your home ASAP to diagnose and repair your heating issue.
