How Do Dehumidifiers Work?
Unlike a humidifier, which adds moisture to dry air, a dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air. A dehumidifier works by drawing humid air over cold coils, which cause the humidity to condense into water droplets that collect in the unit. The droplets are then stored in a reservoir or drained with a hose. Portable dehumidifiers have to be manually emptied or drained to a sink or sump basin. Usually, whole-home dehumidifiers have a convenient permanent drainage connection that doesn’t require emptying.
Make excess humidity in your home a thing of the past with dehumidifier service by Metro Heating & Cooling. Call (314) 845-5900 or conveniently contact us online now.

Do I Need a Whole-Home or Portable Dehumidifier?
You should weigh the benefits of investing in multiple portable humidifiers versus a single whole-home dehumidifier for your humidity issues. In a humid environment like Fenton, a whole-house dehumidifier may be the most effective option and will increase the overall value of your home. If you are experiencing humidity-related issues in only some areas of your home, a whole-home dehumidifier may be unnecessary, and the problem could be solved with a portable unit. A professional can assist in determining which type of unit will work most effectively in your space.
What Size Dehumidifier Do I Need?
Dehumidifier sizing is calculated based on the size and relative humidity of the space where it will be used. Your technician will take humidity readings, and then, depending on the humidity levels and the square footage of your home, they will recommend the models that will best serve your needs.
Are dehumidifiers loud?
Noise is subjective, but for comparison’s sake, most dehumidifiers are less noisy than a portable air conditioning unit. A dehumidifier will produce noise while operating, so you may want it placed in a part of your home that does not require low sound levels.
