Dri-Eaz LGR 3500i Dehumidifier Customer Q & A

Dri-Eaz LGR 3500i Dehumidifier Product Details
Q1: Will the LGR 3500i Dehumidifier be able to control the humidity in a gymnasium of approximately 180,000 cubic feet? If not, what do you recommend as a solution?

A: You would likely need 4-5 LGR 3500i units placed inside the gym to control that large of a space. Typically, the 3500i dehumidifier will handle about 34,000 cu. ft., and at 80° F and 60% rH, it will extract about 170 pints of water per day a little over 21 gallons. Your alternative would be to tie a dehumidification system into the HVAC. We have 2 AprilAire models that tie directly into the HVAC. For this sitation, an Ebac CD425 might be a more ideal solution. This unit can cover areas as large as 53,000 cu. ft. You could likely cover the area you described with 2-3 units and maintain healthy humidity levels throughout. At 80° F and 60% rH, it will extract about 35.5 gallons of water per day, up to 50 gallons per day under more extreme conditions. With decent air circulation throughout the space, you increase the effective range of any dehumidifier model.
