Stay comfortable with a built in dehumidifier system for your Atlanta home.
An in-home dehumidification system helps you stay dry and cool, no matter the outdoor conditions.
Here in the South, it's not just the heat that gets you. It's the humidity.
Even many air conditioners are no match for the sultry summers we have here in Metro Atlanta.
But a whole home dehumidifier changes all of that. For good.
At PV, our expert team installs and services whole house dehumidification systems using effective, proven installation techniques.
Reasons to consider whole house dehumidification
Here's when it may make sense to consider adding a dehumidifier to HVAC infrastructure in your home:
- You feel sweaty or clammy even when you have your AC set to a comfortable temperature
- Your allergies flare up when you're inside your home on hot days
- Your existing AC struggles to bring humidity to a comfortable level.
- Humidity spikes inside your home during spring, fall, or other times when you're not running your HVAC system
The reasons for considering a central home dehumidifier are numerous, but most come down to health and comfort:
- Desire to reduce dust mite populations and/or mold, which thrive in high humidity environments
- Need to improve overall comfort, so you don't feel hot all the time inside your home
- Ability to bring in fresh air via the dehumidification system, you you get lower indoor humidity and better overall air quality

How does a whole home dehumidifier work?
It's like an air conditioner, except it doesn't cool. It just removes moisture.
When air enters a whole house dehumidifier, humidity condenses inside the unit and drains into a pipe. Eventually, it flows out of the pipe and onto the ground outside — almost exactly how your AC works, right?
The built in dehumidification system interfaces with your air conditioner and thermostat. Basically, you set the desired relative humidity (usually around 50 to 50%) and the air conditioner runs like normal. The dehumidifier kicks in afterward to remove any additional humidity in the air until the level reaches your setting.
In the end, you're dry and comfortable no matter the conditions outdoors!
Dehumidifier for house? Our installations are the best in Atlanta.
When it comes to whole house dehumidification, installation quality matters a whole lot.
Most companies install dehumidifiers so that they blow dry air back across your wet AC coil. This method might work ok in some homes, but we've found that it's best to route the dehumidified air so that it doesn't blow back across that coil.
That way, we avoid reintroducing moisture into the home while we're trying to dehumidify it! The dehumidifier will operate more efficiently and you'll feel more comfortable.

That's why our technicians receive special training in the realm of indoor air quality, humidity management, and home performance.
