3 TIPS AFTER installing a Whole Home Dehumidifier
1. Whole Home Dehumidifiers produce small amounts of heat
The supplied air from a dehumidifier compared to the air coming in will be 15-25 degrees warmer depending on the load given. The quantity of air will not be that large compared your central air system. There is however a way to mitigate the heat produced by a dehumidifier through design and installation setup. One way to setup a whole home dehumidifier is to set its own return air duct then put the supply side into the return of your central air system. This way the warmed and dehumidified air is then cooled before entering your home.
2. Set your dehumidifier to 45% Relative Humidity at 77 Degrees
AHSRAE recommends 77 degree setting on your normal air conditioning system with 45% Relative Humidity. Average human comfort is 50% relative humidity at 75 degrees. With lowered humidity you'll be comfortable at a higher set temperature which will allow for less utility usage..... saving you money.
Some customer when they first receive a whole home dehumidifier have the temptation to run the humidity as low as possible. This can be a mistake because you do ACTUALLY want some humidity in the air. If the humidity is too low this will not be as good for your skin, will increase static electricity in the house etc. Need to set your whole home dehumidifier like goldilocks would...... Not too high and not too low but JUST RIGHT.
3. Remember to change your Dehumidifier's Filter
Whole Home dehumifiers that come from major manufacturers like Honeywell, and Ultra-Aire (clean comfort), have filters built in. These are typically smaller 1" filters that should be changed every 1-3 months depending on how impacted they get and home much your dehumidifier runs.
