Well, they're back – AprilAire whole house dehumidifiers. Powerful, these dehumidifiers can help reduce moisture throughout your home by using your existing ductwork. Locate them in your basement and duct them directly into your HVAC to dry air while you cool.
_Excess moisture and humidity during the summer months can lead to swelling of wood furniture and trim but more importantly, all that extra water in the air in your home can allow mold to grow. Mold can create harmful mycotoxins that can cause respiratory problems for anyone living in the home, particularly allergy or asthma sufferers. Sneezing, wheezing, congestion, and other cold like symptoms are common reactions from exposure to mold.
From bathrooms and laundry rooms to kitchens and even inside walls, mold can flourish in parts of your home that never you never even see. Removing moisture can not only reduce the risk of mold growth but also help keep dust mites under control and actually help to reduce your cooling bill. Moist air can retain more heat than dry air, so by driving the indoor relative humidity down, the air in your home can cool quicker while requiring less power to do so.
AprilAire dehumidifiers are made in the USA and feature a built-in humidistat, a MERV 8 air filter, auto restart and auto defrost, steel construction, and can be tied into your existing HVAC ducts and condensate line. We recommend that you consult a local HVAC contractor or professional for installation of the AprilAire 1750 or the powerful AprilAire 1770 dehumidifier. Take advantage now during this muggy, wet summer and save, as all AprilAire dehumidifiers are now on sale!
