Mold spores under microscope | HVAC | KS Services

With the summer kicking into high gear, the humidity will start to rise and make you feel warmer than the mercury indicates. Removing excess humidity in your home will help cool you off without lowering the thermostat.

Your air conditioner already eliminates some humidity, and a whole-home dehumidifier will ensure every room in your house is at the ideal humidity level.

Excessive moisture in your home can produce a number of problems, such as mold and mildew growing inside your HVAC system and ductwork. Prevent microorganisms from spreading throughout your home by controlling the humidity with the right HVAC equipment and KS Services help.

Rid Your Home of Mold, Mildew and Allergens

Your HVAC unit is an essential part of your home’s comfort and utilizing the right indoor air quality products with it will keep moisture levels down. If you are unsure what products might be best for your home, examine them further to get a better idea of what you are looking for:

Whole-Home Dehumidifier:

Alabama residents battle humidity constantly, which is why a whole-home dehumidifier is the best weapon against excessive moisture indoors.

Portable dehumidifiers only tackle the humidity in one place, while a whole-home unit works directly with your HVAC system to control the moisture throughout your entire house.

You will notice fewer health issues, such as allergy, asthma and respiratory infections, when a dehumidifier is working alongside your HVAC system.

Ultraviolet Air Cleaner:

This indoor air quality product strips your air of pollutants before it’s circulated throughout your home. Dirt, dust, pollen, pet dander and mold are killed by ultraviolet rays during the filtration process, ensuring the air you breathe is pure.

UV air cleaners work with your current HVAC system and prevent condensation from accumulating inside your equipment.

ERV Systems:

Energy Recovery Ventilators increases the ventilation in your home. They allow stale, contaminated air to escape while bringing in fresh air.

Mold, mildew and dust mites gather in damp, moist areas of your home, and better ventilation will prevent moisture from accumulating throughout your home.

Media Air Cleaner:

Similar to an ultraviolet air cleaner, a media air cleaner traps and eliminates indoor pollutants from your air. They require less maintenance because the filter only needs to be replaced twice a year.

They work with almost any brand of ducted HVAC system and capture up to 95% of particles. KS Services offers several different media air cleaners with various features for you to choose from.

Another great way to reduce moisture and condensation inside your HVAC system is by scheduling service at least twice a year. Routine inspections of your heating and cooling unit will check for moisture accumulation.

KS Services offers service, maintenance, and tune-ups, which clean your HVAC system and our NATE-certified technicians will notify you if mold or mildew growing inside your unit.
