Johnson Controls: Central Dehumidifiers
November 7, 2011
Joining the line of the company’s IAQ products are three Luxaire Acclimate central dehumidifiers. The 65-, 90-, and 135-pint models are designed to remove excess moisture from the air and improve comfort levels in homes, allowing homeowners to raise their thermostat by several degrees and reduce annual cooling costs by as much as 18 percent, says the company. The smallest model is specifically designed for condominium complexes and applications where space is limited. However, the versatile unit can also be used in homes as large as 3,600 square feet, depending on the geographic location and energy-efficient construction of the home. The 90-pint model, which can accommodate homes up to 5,000 square feet, incorporates built-in ventilation technology and fan-cycling features to provide better circulation and mixing of the dehumidified air throughout the home. According to the manufacturer, this unit lends itself to installations in basements, crawlspaces, or attics. The largest capacity model is designed for homes up to 7,400 square feet.
