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?
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.
