Too Cool For A/C, But Too Humid for Comfort

Thursday, June 18, 2009 by Dennie Plomedahl

It is Thursday, June 18, 2009 in Madison, Wisconsin.  The temperature is 66°F.  No need to run the air conditioning with this temperature.  But are you comfortable?  Probably not.  Why?  The relative humidity (RH) is a whopping 88%! 

A whole-house dehumidifier is the solution
Dehumidification is a natural by-product of air conditioning.  However, only 10% of what an air conditioner does is dehumidify, and it is controlled by temperature, not RH.  The solution to maintaining your comfort on these very typical days is to have your Aprilaire dealer install a whole-house dehumidifier.  It works in conjunction with your home's HVAC system to remove excess moisture from your entire house, not just a single room like a portable dehumidifier.  And because it controls to RH, not temperature, you don't over cool your house to remove moisture.

Call your Aprilaire dealer and get your whole-house dehumidifier installed today!
