If it's over-sized, however, its dehumidifying abilities will be compromised, and a dedicated dehumidifier may be needed to provide relief. Also, on moderate days when the A/C isn't operating but relative humidity inside your house is 50 percent or higher, you'll need a dehumidifier to bring it down to a comfortable level.

"Great first impression with the receptionist who answered my call after the first ring! She was friendly, professional, and genuine... The service repair technician was professional and took time to explain the repair that he recommended to the A/C unit. He fixed the unit on the spot. Not only great service, but great people too. Thank you, Hartman Brothers!"
