Home is supposed to be relaxing and comfortable — but it’s not so easy when you’re trying to battle southern humidity without the right system. Since 1978, Tiger Services has been providing San Antonio homeowners with reliable whole-house dehumidification systems.
Moisture circulating around your home allows bacteria, mold spores and other pollutants to flourish. For instance, dust mites can thrive in damp corners, and the waste they produce ends up floating around, creating new ecosystems for more bacteria to live in. (Not a cycle you want to encourage!) As a result, the air inside your home can become a source of allergens and trigger respiratory issues including asthma.
By drying out the air to a comfortable level, many of these issues become more manageable. Plus, drier and purified air is healthier to breathe in.
To meet energy efficiency requirements, many newer San Antonio homes feature foam insulation that makes them practically air-tight. In order to promote better circulation, they’ll have fresh air dampers designed to bring air from the outside in. But we find many fresh air damper issues on new homes.
What happens when it’s hot and sticky outside? All that moist air comes rushing in and makes your indoor air humid and unbearable. If your home’s ventilation system isn’t set up properly, or it’s missing altogether, your air quality and comfort can suffer.
Tiger Services can inspect your home’s ventilation system to see if this might be causing excess humidity and countless other problems.
After living with moist, humid air in your San Antonio home, you’ll immediately start noticing the difference a dehumidification system can make. There are many advantages of adding a whole-house dehumidifier system to your heating and cooling system, including:
All in all, you can eliminate the humidity and experience amazing comfort!
Unlike portable dehumidifiers, a whole-house dehumidification system is installed in your home’s central heating and cooling system. The most obvious benefit is how much more comfortable you’ll feel — but there is even more to love about a whole-house dehumidifier.
Dehumidifiers from our brands — Aprilaire and Ultra-aire — can remove up to three times as much moisture as the leading portable dehumidifier. Maintaining lower humidity levels reduces the strain on your air conditioner. You’ll feel cooler and more comfortable without the stickiness, so you can set your thermostat a little higher and enjoy the energy savings.
Whole-house dehumidifiers drain automatically and will only need an air filter changed once per year. Plus, there are no messy water tanks homeowners have to clean or empty.
Your dehumidification system will automatically sense the amount of moisture in your home to maintain steady and optimum humidity levels. It can remove moisture evenly throughout your home or you can have it focus on specific problem areas.
Unlike portable dehumidification units, whole-house dehumidifiers are unobtrusive. They are typically installed where your furnace and AC units are located so they are quiet and out of sight. Their low maintenance requirements also keep them out of mind.
It’s not always easy to choose the right dehumidifier for your home. Our experienced technicians can help you understand your choices so you can make an informed decision that will keep your home comfortable for years to come. At Tiger Services, we are an Authorized Service Center for Aprilaire and we carry the following dehumidifier models:
