Humidifier and Dehumidifier Services in Kansas City
We rightfully spend a great deal of time concerning ourselves with handling indoor temperature control here in Kansas City, MO, but it’s hardly the only comfort concern in our neck of the woods. Relative humidity levels can make our lives miserable, with sweltering mugginess in the summer and bone-dry air in the winter. Heaters and standard air conditioners can only deal with the problem crudely at best, even energy efficient HVAC systems.
The ideal solution for homeowners would be a whole-house humidifier for the winter and a similar whole-house dehumidifier for the summer. The friendly pros at Climate Control Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can perform quality installation, as well as humidifier and dehumidifier repair and servicing to boot. For the best whole home humidifiers and dehumidifiers in the Kansas City area, call on our team today! We can take care of nearly any air conditioning cooling systems, HVAC systems, indoor air quality systems and whole home humidifiers and dehumidifiers.

Why Are Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers Necessary?
Human beings are most comfortable when the relative humidity levels sit somewhere between 30% and 50%. When it gets higher, our bodies won’t cool off and we feel manky and gross. (High humidity also fosters mold growth, mildew and bacteria in your home and ductwork, in addition to musty smells.) When humidity falls lower, causing dry air, your skin feels dry and itchy, static electricity increases and your body is more vulnerable to colds and illnesses.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers solve the problem in an elegant and effective way. In addition to keeping your humidity levels comfortable, they can lower the strain on your air conditioner and heater: helping them do their job more effectively and reduce the risk of a breakdown instead. Call our team for the best humidifier and dehumidifier repair service in the Kansas City, MO area.
Dehumidifiers Help Your Air Conditioner
The best way to reduce humidity in the air is to lower the temperature, which causes the ambient moisture to coalesce into droplets. (This is one of the reasons why you get dew on the ground in the cool hours of the early morning.) That means that air conditioners work as dehumidifiers by default, simply by running the way they do.
The trouble is that they do the job crudely at best, and they waste energy in the process, as no air conditioning cooling system can provide the same level of humidity reduction, regardless of where you set the thermostat. Furthermore, while air conditioners have a drip pan and other devices designed to remove the condensate, they can’t always handle the excess moisture. The best dehumidifier is the one that specifically does the job, allowing you to tailor the indoor humidity levels to suit, and remove excess humidity in your Kansas City home. And our team can cover dehumidifier installation and repairs. Call us today.
Turn on a Humidifier in the Winter
You might be familiar with smaller humidifiers designed to help people when they’re sick, or perhaps to keep certain indoor plants healthy in the winter. The best humidifiers are whole–house humidifiers, however, which extend those benefits to the entire home, helping to avoid dry skin, allergens, and more.
Not only can a humidifier help your heater do its job more easily, but it can prevent colds by ensuring that your sinuses don’t dry out, as well as cutting down on static electricity and other nuisances. If you think your home could benefit from a whole home humidifier installation, or you have an existing model that needs repairs, contact us today to schedule service.
