Living in Illinois, the weather can get quite humid causing musty smells, dust mites, mold, and mildew to form in your home. This type of atmosphere can be hazardous to your health especially allergy sufferers. If you suffer from stuffy nose, itchy watery eyes, skin rashes, or difficulty breathing a dehumidifier can help. Having a dehumidifier in your home are beneficial in the following ways:
Dehumidifiers are a good choice for small rooms with poor ventilation such as basement apartments, bathrooms and closets. Poor ventilation can cause black spots or frequent condensation on the walls or windows of your home to form. A dehumidification system pulls that humid air out of the room and decreases those health hazards from forming.
Our technicians can help you decide which dehumidification system best suites your needs. They are trained, qualified and familiar with all makes and models, to access your situation, and provide you with the best dehumidification system for your whole house. We will listen to your needs and give you your best options to make your home comfortable.

If your house isn't cooling, it can turn a dreamy summer day into a nightmare. Below are a few tips to check before calling for service. A quick check can save time and money.
If your thermostat is blank or has a blinking battery light or symbol on the thermostat, it indicates that the batteries need to be changed. Most thermostats require AA or AAA batteries.
Sometimes a high voltage breaker can trip and cause the unit to stop working. If that is the issue, flip it back and you should be back in business.
If the filter is dirty the unit will run continuously and the temperature in you house will have a difficult time keeping up. A simple change may be all you need to address the situation.
If ice covers your coil, or liquid that couldn't have come from another source surrounds the line, your line is likely leaking refrigerant and a professional inspection is warranted.
