  I Can Breathe Now
Reviewed by: Zipora Johns from KeyWest, FL

If you're looking for a whole house dehumidifier then look no further the Aprilaire. It installed right into our heating and cooling system. It takes a TON of water out of the air and there aren't any messy tanks for my husband to empty and clean. Living where I am power outages are common but the unit has a auto restart so I never have to worry reseting it. The whole house feels now feels cooler and I feel better knowing mold shouldn't be a problem for me to worry about anymore!

Customer Q & A

Q1: I'm building a home in Hilo on the ocean. I won't need a central heater or air conditioning unit. I understand with the Whole house Aprilaire system you need ductwork to pull the moisture out of the home. Does it matter if we don't have central air?

A: The AprilAire 1770 is built to tie into lines that supply air to the home heating or cooling ductwork. If you have no central heating or cooling, then I am seem to be missing something. Generally if the home does not have central heating or cooling it will not have the ductwork run throughout. I live in an older style home here in GA that lacks an HVAC unit and consequently lacks ductwork. However, if you will have ductwork installed during the build, you can certainly tie the 1770 into it. You may want to install a modular style blower. Depending on the size of this home, the Aprilaire will likely not be able to sufficiently circulate air throughout each room. A blower will push 4x or more the volume of air of the fan unit inside of the AprilAire 1770. So the blower would do the heavy lifting of circulating the air through your home while an integrated AprilAire 1770 dehumidifier would take care of the humidity. This type of blower can typically be purchased for around $300-$500 depending on what exactly you want.

The Aprilaire 1750A and 1770A models differ only in capacity the 1770A has a total removal capacity of up to 150 pints per day. The 1770A also features truly automatic control, so there is never a need to manually control the dehumidifier.  Just set it once and forget it. The best choice for healthy, comfortable air is the 1770A Whole House Dehumidifier installed in your new or existing heating and cooling system. The benefits and results speak for themselves.

What I like about the Aprilaire 1170A

The Aprilaire 1770A is a ductable dehumidifier that has all the same features as the popular 1750A model. What sets it apart, is an impressive AHAM removal capacity of 150 pints per day. The color has been changed from beige to light blue, and it has an LED status indicator that lets you know when the unit is running, sampling, defrosting or in need of service. This dehumidifier is built to integrate into your homes HVAC system and requires some installation with ducting work. The dehumidifier comes with built-in duct collars to easily attach to your HVAC system.

It has a built in air cycling feature which will trigger the blower in your HVAC system to turn on. This feature is helpful to help balance the humidity of the air throughout the entire home. Lastly, this unit has something I have never seen on any other dehumidifier, it has the ability to pull in air from the outside using its patented built in ventilation feature. The dehumidifier will dehumidify the incoming air from outside as it enters.

Aprilaire offers an accessory called the Living Space Control which can be used with this dehumidifier to monitor and control moisture in a specific location. This accessory looks like a thermostat on a normal HVAC.

What I do not like about the Aprilaire 1770A

As with all Aprilaire dehumidifiers, I wish it had a hygrometer on board rather than just a 15 position turn knob. This model does not come with wheels. It can be converted into a free standing unit in the event you need to dehumidify an isolated area.

In summary, if I was going to attach a dehumidifier to my HVAC system, I would definitely consider this model. The features and performance make it an ideal unit to keep relative humidity in check throughout your home. Could I do the installation myself? Probably, but I would give serious thought to having an HVAC professional come out and hook it up for me.

The Ebac CD35 has a no nonsense durable design, and is very quiet, free of rattles. Achoo Allergy expedited the order and we received the unit in a very timely manner. I would recommend this unit for anyone needing a smaller capacity, well built dehumidifier.
