What do you need?
You walk into a room, and something seems off. There’s a climate in your room. Something doesn’t taste, feel, smell, like what a normal room should smell like.
Is it the quality of the air or the humidity of the room? How can you tell and what is the best way to solve that problem? You either need a dehumidifier or an air purifier.
What does a Dehumidifier do?
Dehumidifiers are the most common addition to peoples rooms in Florida. Since we are surrounded by water; we tend to have some of the highest humidity rates in America. With that in mind, dehumidifiers counteract the climate of a humid bedroom and make it easier to breathe.
What does an Air Purifier do?
Air purifiers are good for filtering out the air around you and pumping clean air into the room. These are fitting for people who have temperamental allergies or are prone to getting sick and need to look out for pollutants in the air.
Which do you need?
In our experience, it depends on how fast you catch it. Often if you need an air purifier, you need a dehumidifier. But if you need a dehumidifier you may not require an air purifier.
Most of the problems that can be solved by having an air purifier, can be avoided if you use a dehumidifier sooner. A humid climate/room will lower the air quality in a room and permit foreign chemicals like pollen and allergens to enter the room.

There are plenty of good reasons to consider a dehumidifier for your home or commercial space. Humidity is as important a factor as temperature when it comes to comfort and the efficiency of your air conditioner, and it’s a good idea to know what your options are. Doubtless, you know what a dehumidifier is and you may have even used a portable one yourself in the home to cut down on the amount of moisture in the air, particularly during the summer. But we’re talking about whole house dehumidifiers that integrate directly within your HVAC system so that you don’t have to worry about moving it from room to room or constantly emptying out the accumulated water.
So, how do you know if you need a dehumidifier in your home? It can be difficult to tell, especially considering that humidity is a more subtle factor than temperature alone. Nevertheless, we’ve given you some signs below that may help you make an informed decision.
- Condensation build-up. If you find that you have moisture on the walls, ceilings, or floors of your living or work space, then you need to take action. While it could be the result of a serious lack of ventilation, a dehumidifier can go a long way towards balancing out your humidity. The presence of water in the home can have serious long-term effects to the materials that comprise your building’s structure, in addition to providing excellent conditions for mold, mildew and other biological contaminants.
- Discomfort due to ‘swamp’-like conditions. One of the greatest benefits of the whole house dehumidifier is that it can drastically improve your home’s comfort. If your home feels sweltering, then you may want to take action by installing a dehumidifier.
- Energy efficiency. By reducing the amount of moisture in the air, you lighten the load of dehumidification that your AC has to undertake. This can reduce your energy bills.
The key to a successful dehumidifier installation (or service) is hiring a professional for the job. We can make sure that your system is professionally installed and serviced at all times. Call Air Source America today.
