Combatting Mold, Mildew & Dust Mites
Hot and humid climates create the perfect environment for mold, mildew, and dust mites to thrive. As such, these irritants are a considerable problem in the Charlotte area. Proper humidity control with a dehumidifier will help prevent mold, mildew, and dust mites from proliferating on surfaces, beneath flooring, and behind walls.
Our Dehumidifier Installation Services
Dehumidifiers can be installed anywhere in your home but are most commonly installed near the primary source of moisture. This means that most homeowners choose to install the system on ductwork located near the air conditioner, within the basement, or on an upper floor. Our technicians will help you determine the ideal placement location for your home. We offer systems manufactured by Lennox because we know they perform exceptionally well within our climate and will deliver safe, reliable, long-term performance. We will install the unit, test system operation, and show you how to achieve optimal performance. From start to finish, the process typically takes between four to six hours to complete the installation and testing of your new whole-home dehumidifier.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will a dehumidifier help with my allergy symptoms?
Yes, dehumidifiers have been found to reduce allergies associated with mold, mildew, and dust mites.
How do I know if I need a dehumidifier?
You may need a dehumidifier if you notice condensation frequently building up on your walls or windows, odors associated with mildew or mold, unexplained water stains on your walls or ceilings, or small black spots (mold spores) building up on surfaces in areas such as bathrooms where humidity levels are known to be high.
Should I run the dehumidifier throughout the year?
In North Carolina and South Carolina, our humidity levels are highest during the summer. For most homeowners, the winter is dry enough that they do not need to run their dehumidifiers. If your home has exceptionally high humidity, though, you can run your dehumidifier whenever it’s needed.
