When your foundation is below ground level, your basement will typically stay at 55-65 degrees all year long. Condensation occurs when air from outside enters the home through either the basement’s windows or where the home meets the foundation. We install an April Air system which keeps your basement at 50% relative humidity–the balance your basement requires to prevent mold from forming.
The Products We Use
In order to properly dehumidify your basement and maintain good air quality, we install April Air dehumidifiers. We’ve hand-picked these units because, after a couple dozen years in the industry, we’ve found these products are some of the highest quality on the market. We believe in bringing the best service to our customers every day.
How It Works
Dehumidifiers help control moisture in your home by regulating humidity levels. Without a proper and efficient dehumidifier, your home is at great risk of mold and other harmful allergens.
Benefits of Dehumidifier Installation
A dehumidifier is a device that reduces the level of humidity in the air. This can have a number of benefits, especially for people who live in humid climates or who suffer from allergies or asthma. By reducing the level of humidity, a dehumidifier makes it easier for the basement to remain at a temperature that prevents the growth of mold and mildew. Additionally, it can help to reduce musty odors and make your home more comfortable overall. If you are considering purchasing a dehumidifier, be sure to do your research to find one that best suits your needs. installation is also important – be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to ensure optimum performance.
Improved Air Quality
As much as 50% of the air in your home comes from your basement and/or crawl space. Since these spaces typically maintain high moisture levels, they put your air at risk of harmful contaminants like mildew, bad bacteria, mold, and dust mites. Maintaining balanced humidity levels in these spaces is crucial for reduced health risks for you and your family.
The Dehumidification Installation Process
We install an April Air unit about the size of a dorm room mini-fridge. These units are self-standing. Our master technicians set the unit to the proper humidity level to maintain moisture balance. Installation of a dehumidifier is not difficult, but there are a few steps that must be followed to ensure proper function and prevent water damage. First, the dehumidifier must be placed on a level surface in an area with good air circulation. If the unit is going to be installed in a basement, it is important to make sure that the floor is clean and dry to prevent mold growth. Next, the drain hose must be connected to the unit and routed to a floor drain or sump pit. Once everything is properly positioned and connected, the unit can be plugged in and turned on. The final step is to set the desired humidity level using the control panel. With proper installation, a dehumidifier can help to improve indoor air quality and prevent water damage.
How the Units Work
Our units operate by circulating air in order to purify it. The dehumidifiers suck all the air in the basement through the top of the machine, filter out the dampness and debris (down to the size of a dust mite), then put clean air back into the basement.
Why You Should Trust Us
You can certainly go to your local appliance store and select your own unit to install. But the benefits of having us come out and do it means you get a proper and effective installation with the right amount of moisture control for good, clean air.
