Whole House Dehumidifiers
An Aprilaire Whole-Home Dehumidifier Can Help
Daily activities, such as cooking, cleaning and showering can add as much as 25 pounds of moisture to your home — every day.
Your air conditioner is designed to control temperature, not humidity. You need humidity control to maintain comfortable, healthy conditions in your home.
The Aprilaire Whole-Home Dehumidifier is installed as part of your home's heating and cooling system. It works in conjunction with your air conditioner, or independently as needed, to remove the ideal amount of moisture to solve the above problems. But not so much that your home becomes too dry.
This is done throughout your entire home, using a single, out-of-the-way source—unlike portables.
Other advantages of Aprilaire Dehumidifiers include:
Automatic humidity sensing: allows for better whole-home monitoring and control of humidity
Convenient, quiet operation: away from your living space
Low maintenance: simple annual filter cleaning
Fresh air ventilation: automatically removes or dilutes polluted air
A phrase that rings true in almost every home. When it's muggy outside, it's muggy inside. And excess humidity can make you miserable. You can literally see, feel and smell it:
Indoor condensation appears on windows, mirrors and cold drinks
Your house becomes a breeding ground for insects
Wood floors, trim and wood furniture warp or rot
You experience uncomfortable sweating at normal indoor temperatures
Skin feels sticky in summer/clammy in winter
Rooms smell musty
High Humidity Can Cause Health Problems
Left unchecked, excess moisture can cause:
Mold and mildew to grow
Dust mites to thrive
