I attended a great building science seminar yesterday where the speaker talked about “HVAC + D”. He was referring to the need for supplemental dehumidification in high performing houses in our hot/humid Texas climate, and I thought the catch phrase “HVAC + D” was pretty cool!
If you read my blog often you’ll know I’ve become a raving fan of UltraAire whole house venting dehumidifiers. These units make a world of difference in the houses I built, but I’ve only been recommending them to my clients the last 2 years. In this video I’ll show you how we retrofitted an UltraAire 90H unit in a house I remodeled 3 years ago. This house is a perfect candidate for adding a Dehumidifier, and the conditioned attic had a great spot to mount the unit. If you are considering adding a Dehum to your house this 90H model works very well for retrofit and I highly recommend it.
For information on maintaining one of these units see this other video I made. -Matt Risinger
