Dehumidifiers by Russell & Abbott
Maintaining comfortable environments in our homes is a common goal that homeowners share. It is also a lot tougher than some may first realize. You see, there is a lot more to comfort than simply running the air conditioner when it is hot outside, or turning the thermostat up a few degrees during a particularly chilly winter night. Indoor air quality plays a major factor, too, and issues such as poorly balanced humidity can not only put your comfort and health at risk, but can also make it tough for your HVAC systems to work effectively. That is why humidity control is such an important weapon to have in your arsenal.
If you suffer from excessive humidity in your home, then you are wise to consider the installation of a whole-house dehumidifier. We install and service dehumidifiers throughout Blount, Knox and Loudon Counties, and our staff is here to ensure that yours is in fine working condition. Call upon the pros at Russell & Abbott today if you suspect that a dehumidifier is needed in your home.

Signs That You Need a Dehumidifier
Tennessee can get quite hot during the summer season, and the humidity can really make the heat feel unbearable. There are a few signs that you may notice in your home which can indicate the need for a dehumidifier therein. The first and foremost, of course, is the type of discomfort that excessively humid air can lead to. You may find that the air feels thick and heavy, and your skin is sticky because sweat will not evaporate. This is far from the only sign that you need a dehumidifier in your home, though.
Very humid air can hold a lot of pollutants in it, so you may suffer from aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms. High humidity can negatively impact your property as well. Perhaps you notice water stains on your floors or walls, or even wood rot throughout your home. Wallpaper may peel away from the walls, and wooden floorboards can warp. Biological pollutants can also thrive in very humid areas, so you may be at increased risk of mold growth and other issues. To learn more about the signs that there is too much humidity in the air throughout your home, just call upon the pros on our staff.
We Install and Service Dehumidifiers
You may have seen or used a portable dehumidifier at some point, but know that this is not the ideal solution to such pervasive problems with excessive humidity. A whole–house dehumidifier is a much better way in which to resolve problems with excessive humidity. Of course, such systems must be directly integrated into your HVAC system, which means that they must be professionally installed. Should any problems develop with your dehumidifier, as evidenced by the fact that old problems start to redevelop, call us immediately. Russell & Abbott can repair your dehumidifier as needed.
