There are certain times of the year in the fall, winter, and spring, when your air conditioning system does not need to cool your home. While idle, your system is not performing its other job … dehumidification.
Above 55% indoor humidity, your pillows will feel damp, the air in your home will begin to smell musty, moisture will condense on the inside of windows, and dust mites begin to proliferate. Mold and mildew begins to take hold of your home and allergies and negative reactions to mold begin to affect you and your loved ones. Some homeowners attempt to reduce their indoor humidity by lowering the temperature setting on their thermostat but find the setting makes it too cold with minimal humidity reduction. If this sounds familiar, there is a better and more effective solution to this problem: Ventilating Dehumidifiers.
Ventilating dehumidifiers serve two purposes. They dehumidify your entire home, and they ventilate by bringing in fresh outdoor air. As your air conditioner is controlled by a thermostat, a ventilating dehumidifier is controlled by a centrally located dehumidistat. Connected to your duct system, these dehumidifiers provide a controlled amount dry air to each room of your home until it is dehumidified the dehumidistat cycles it off.
These dehumidifiers are quiet, and operate independently of your air conditioning and heating system. You will no longer need to fight your thermostat and make your air conditioner operate when it is not needed.
