Dehumidifier Services in Chapel Hill & Durham NC

Humidity can become a significant problem at certain times of the year in our area. Too much moisture in the air contributes to a feeling that the air is warmer than it actually is. It can be challenging to find relief even in an air conditioned room if the humidity is too high. Running your air conditioner may just drive up your energy bills unnecessarily since it’s not actually the heat that is bothering you—it’s the humidity.

Instead, consider a separate whole-house dehumidifier to upgrade your air conditioning system to make you feel comfortable on humid days. Reducing moisture helps you to stay cool, and it can have a positive impact on your health.


Adding on a dehumidifier to your home’s HVAC system can help you in many ways. Take a look at some of our favorite benefits of adding this system to your home.

  • More Comfort: High humidity makes it difficult for your body to evaporate sweat, which can make you feel uncomfortable on a hot day.
  • Increased Energy Efficiency: A dehumidifier uses less energy than an air conditioner, which means it can cut down your monthly costs if you use it over your air conditioner to stay comfortable.
  • Prevent Mold Growth: Mold grows in moist environments, and a dehumidifier can stop it from developing.


Selecting a dehumidifier can be a difficult task, but the first thing you should realize is that a whole–home model is so much more effective than a portable point–of–use unit. Whole–house dehumidifiers help reduce moisture levels throughout the entire home by working along with your HVAC system. Choosing the right whole–house dehumidifier, however, involves some expertise. You want to ensure that it is the proper size and model to work with your heating and air conditioning equipment and that it is correctly wired for use with your thermostats.


Our experts want to help you find the best dehumidifier for your needs. We can install a brand-new system that fits your HVAC system sizing requirements, and we will ensure that it is working correctly to moderate humidity levels before we go. We also offer dehumidifier repair, replacement, and maintenance services. Just call our team of skilled professionals today. Our technicians are at the top of their fields, and they will do everything they can to make sure that you are comfortable.
