| Whole-House Dehumidifiers with JNJ Heat and Air
Humidity in Ft. Worth and surrounding areas can reach upwards of 80% in the summer months. Most AC units can’t keep up with the dehumidification needs of your home (especially if they’re improperly sized), so, without a proper dehumidification system in place, you’re likely to find your home quite uncomfortable in the summer months. It’s almost as if these systems are made for our climate!
At JNJ Heat and Air, Comfort is Our Business. We work hard to keep up with all the latest advancements in all things HVAC technology. Whole-home dehumidifiers are the next step to reaching new levels of comfort within your home, effortlessly. We love whole-house dehumidifiers, and so do our customers!
There are several different ways we install whole-house dehumidifiers. Many of our new units include dehumidifiers, but if you’re not in the market for a new unit, there are stand-alone options. Traditionally, we simply install a dehumidifier by tying the unit to your existing return ductwork.
Another option, a newer option, is to install a new return duct in your home, sending dry air to the supply plenum. This way, there’s a dedicated return supplying air to the unit, avoiding any issues like high static pressure, a wet evaporator coil dampening the air post-dehumidification, or unstable dew points.

| Why You Need a Whole-House Dehumidifier
While purchasing a stand-alone dehumidifier is absolutely an option, emptying the condensate tank or running a hose to a drain can be a major inconvenience and hassle. They also can’t possibly reduce humidity in the entire home. Investing in a whole-house dehumidification system means improved comfort, without the headache of maintaining a stand-alone humidifier.
If you’re worried about your home’s indoor air quality, a dehumidifier could be a first step for you! By decreasing your home’s relative humidity (RH), you’re making it significantly less hospitable to air-borne contaminants (to be specific, dust-mites!) and mold. Some dehumidifiers come with fresh-air supply controls, where it filters fresh air, removes humidity, and pumps it right into your home.
It’s important to note that a dehumidifier is not an energy efficiency upgrade; it’s a comfort upgrade. However, most of our customers don’t notice a major difference in their monthly utility bills after installation. With a higher humidity, there’s no way you’ll be comfortable setting the AC at 76 degrees during the summer. However, install a dehumidifier and 76 degrees will be much more comfortable!
