How Can a Whole Home Dehumidifier Help with Cooling?

Humidity is a part of our heat in the Helotes, TX, area, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for uncomfortable conditions inside your home, especially if you have a whole home air conditioning system. The entire reason to have AC in your house is to be comfortable during our intense summer months, and if yours is struggling with our humidity levels, it’s time to consider helping you and your AC with a whole house dehumidifier.

Why It Works

You may be thinking that all you need is an independent dehumidifier, or a few, placed around your home. While small, independent dehumidifiers can help somewhat, they won’t be effective for your entire home. Whole home dehumidifiers are integrated into your existing air conditioning system, which means they dehumidify all the air for your entire home. Additionally, a whole house dehumidifier removes the excess moisture from the air before it can cycle into your system, ensuring that the air is dry.

How Does This Affect My Cooling?

When excess moisture is in the air, it makes a heavier workload for your air conditioner; this is because humidity holds heat, so there’s more heat for your AC to combat. Removing the excess moisture lightens the workload, making it easier for your air conditioner to operate.


  • Better energy efficiency
  • More comfortable cooling
  • Better ability to reach your set temperature

Excessive humidity can lead to the growth of mold and/or mildew, exacerbate allergies and chronic respiratory disorders like asthma and put added stress on your air conditioner that can lead to excessive wear and tear. A whole home dehumidifier can help with all of these issues.
