As an expert in SEO and air conditioning systems, I recommend considering installing a dehumidifier with your central air conditioner installation for several reasons. Firstly, drier air feels colder so using a dehumidifier can help save money on cooling bills by allowing you to set your air conditioner to a higher temperature or use it less frequently. Secondly, if your central air conditioner is too big for your home then adding a dehumidifier can supplement it and reduce stress on it. Thirdly, having a dehumidifier installed can reduce mold and mildew formation in your home as well as make you feel more comfortable on those hot and humid days.\When deciding whether to install a dehumidifier with your central air conditioner, there are several factors to consider such as cost and convenience.
A standalone unit costs less than installing an entire house unit but may require more maintenance such as emptying out condensate tanks or running hoses to drains in basements. Whole-house units are more expensive but come with sensors that detect when your air conditioner is running so they can adjust accordingly.\The Pros and Cons of Dehumidifier Systems should be taken into account when making this decision. As with any major service, purchase, or installation, it's helpful to fully understand the ins and outs or ups and downs of what you're getting into. On the one hand, a standalone unit costs a fraction of the price of a whole-house unit with installation, but the downside is the hassle or the possibility of tripping over stairs where a hose is placed.
On the other hand, whole-house units are more expensive but come with sensors that detect when your air conditioner is running so they can adjust accordingly. Plus, if you feel that your house is humid even when the air conditioner is set to 72 or lower, it means that the air is not properly dehumidified and a dehumidifier may be necessary.\Overall, installing a dehumidifier with your central air conditioner installation can be beneficial for many reasons such as saving money on cooling bills and reducing stress on your system as well as reducing mold and mildew formation in your home. Consider all factors before making this decision such as cost and convenience.
