DALLAS - Aprilaire noted that its Model 1700 Whole-Home
Dehumidifier is designed to enable contractors to address high humidity
problems in homes with an effective and affordable solution.
When a whole home dehumidifier is installed with an air
conditioning unit, a large range of temperature and rh conditions are available
within the comfort window. Homeowners have the ability to choose their own
comfort level at effective temperatures between 71 and 82.5°F.
The 90-pint/day Aprilaire dehumidifier is a whole-house unit
that features flexible installation options allowing it to be installed in
attics, closets, crawlspaces, etc. Built-in intelligence allows for automatic
control, as well as automatic fan cycling, which allows for improved humidity
and temperature balance throughout the house.

humidifier, the Model 550. The new unit has been renamed the Model 500 and
