General Dehumidifier Questions & Answers
Is there a dehumidifier that takes care of an entire home?
In order for a dehumidifier to work for an entire house in an effective way for years to come, it needs to be a whole-house dehumidifier and it needs to be installed by an HVAC expert. At Madeira Heating & Air we sell and install dehumidification systems that are able to work for large homes and we have smaller units for smaller homes with a wide range of options and special discounts we are more than happy to discuss when you call.
How long is a whole-house dehumidifier operational?
If maintained properly, most whole-home dehumidifiers are good for anywhere from 5 to 10 years provided they are used properly. To maintain your dehumidifier properly and get the max service lifespan out of it, you should replace its air filters regularly. You also need to clean the condensing coils and exhaust grilles and follow any other suggestions you were given when you purchased it. Dehumidifiers are simple devices that effectively reduce the moisture content of any atmosphere it is placed in. For more information on dehumidification systems, call Madeira Heating & Air today!
How big does my dehumidifier need to be?
If you are using one unit for your entire house, as we noted above, you need a whole-house dehumidifier. Otherwise, a dehumidifier’s capacity is rated by the amount of moisture it removes in a single 24-hour period. Therefore, a 35-pint humidifier is rated to remove 35 pints of moisture or water in a day. You can use a 30-pint dehumidifier (or a dehumidifier between 24- and 39-pint capacity) for rooms that are especially damp and between 500 and 1,500 square feet in size.

Mark from Madeira HVAC deserves 5 stars!! This is a great company to call and my experience with Mark was everything you want from a diagnostic service call. Honest, professional, communicative, and took the necessary time and then some to ensure he gave me the most accurate info available. Will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Would call them back in a heartbeat.

A very honest and professional company that did NOT try and sell me a new furnace like so many others have. They diagnosed the problem quickly and suggested a repair, other than replacement as the competetion did. I highly recommend calling them first!
