Will one Aprilaire Dehumidifier cover my whole home? If humid air rises why install in downstairs? Wouldn't it be better to install upstairs.

Will one Aprilaire Dehumidifier cover my whole home?  If humid air rises why install in downstairs? Wouldn't it be better to install upstairs.


Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for contacting us about your dehumidifier questions. Your logic does make sense in wanting to add a dehumidifier upstairs. However, humidity starts in areas that are darker and with less air movement which are usually basements. If the unit is put upstairs than we are simply containing the humidity level upstairs and not at the root source down stairs. If you can keep the humidity contained downstairs than the upstairs levels will not "see" this humidity.
