Our house is too well insulated, the AC hardly runs and it’s about 60% humidity in the house. Which Aprilaire dehumidifier unit would you recommend?

Question submitted to Aprilaire:

We have a new home almost 10,000 sq ft of living space. The house is too well insulated, the AC hardly runs and it’s about 60% humidity in the house. Which unit would you recommend and how much electricity do they use? Will we need a dedicated electric line?

Aprilaires’ response:

Thank you for contacting us with regards to our Model 1770A Dehumidifier. Based on the size of your home, you will likely need more than one unit. The 1770A requires a dedicated 20-amp circuit at 120v. It’s capable of handling up to 7400 sq ft assuming a standard 8′ ceiling height. Taller rooms will need to be recalculated to determine an equivalent square footage. Please review this document for more information.
