Here’s Why You Need an Air Conditioner and Dehumidifier Combo


Wisconsin summers can go from sunny and fun to hot and sticky in a hurry. But how can an HVAC system adapt to keep things comfortable during big temperature and humidity swings? Doubling up home comfort systems, like a Bryant® air conditioner and a whole-home dehumidifier can keep levels normal and add seasonal comfort indoors.

Why Do You Need More Than Just an Air Conditioner?

Warm air naturally holds more moisture than cold air. The cool blast of an AC will remove some of that humidity, making the air feel colder than its actual temperature. But when humidity is high, an air conditioner alone can’t keep up with the excess moisture. The air will often feel damp and muggy instead of nice and cool.

Along with that clammy feeling comes an increase in allergy and asthma symptoms, too—microorganisms and germs thrive in higher humidity.

Take Control of Indoor Air Quality With a Dehumidifier

dehumidifier that works with your cooling system enables you to control the amount of air moisture, keeping it around that ideal 35 to 50 percent range. You’ll be surprised at the difference—most homeowners don’t realize how much improper humidity levels affect them until they experience the impact a dehumidifier and air conditioner combo can have.

Benefits of a Dehumidifier

Homes with high humidity levels often have one or more problems as a direct result from the poor indoor air quality, including musty odors, mold and mildew, warped wood furniture and floors, and condensation damage.

A whole-home dehumidifier can help solve those problems. Other benefits include:

  • Helping you feel better
  • Improving sleep
  • Lowering home energy consumption
  • Avoiding costly repairs due to excess moisture
