The new Aprilaire Ventilating Dehumidifier (Models E100V + 8190FF) features our newest, most energy-efficient dehumidifier with a damper plenum designed for effective, efficient delivery of fresh air. Dehumidify indoor air and incoming fresh air for conditions that:
– Minimize virus survival rates
– Prevent mold and mildew growth
– Create a comfortable, humidity-controlled living space
– Protect wood furnishings and floors
When ventilating in challenging climate zones, such as the hot, humid southeast, managing latent load (moisture) is essential to a healthy home. A ventilating dehumidifier is specifically designed to remove moisture from the air. While air conditioners remove some humidity, their core function is to remove heat – and humidity can be high even in the absence of heat.
The Aprilaire E100V + 8190FF not only manages humidity that is introduced from outside the home via fresh air ventilation, but includes an integrated damper to also dehumidify indoor air if humidity rises outside of a ventilation call.
The patent pending design of the ventilation plenum reduces installation time while delivering superior airflow – for more efficient and effective delivery of fresh air.
Don’t let high humidity ruin your build’s energy and health goals.
Humidity control in the house is important to maintaining Healthy Air. The effects of humidity can have a major impact on the way you feel. ASHRAE recommends keeping your home’s relative humidity between 40-60 percent. Outside of this range, your air and your body are more susceptible to airborne pollutants, allergens, mold, mildew, and viruses.
Balancing the humidity in your home with professional-grade solutions can affect the “real feel” temperature in your home, which can prevent your air conditioner from working overtime. Air that’s too damp can cause wood to warp leading damaging repairs even in new homes. Homeowner can protect their investments with proper moisture control.
Aprilaire’s ventilation systems help create healthy air in the home. By bringing in fresh air from the outside, we can dilute trapped airborne contaminants like allergens, chemicals, viruses and bacteria, and radon. Contaminants that can make you and your family ill. Ventilation systems also help push out trapped humid air outside to help improve indoor comfort and health.
Beyond comfort and health, our ventilation systems are also energy-efficient. Each ventilation system has temperature and humidity sensors to determine the best time to bring in fresh air from the outside reducing energy usage
Builder and Contractor Benefits:
Want to deliver Healthy Air to your home buyers? In humid climate zones that means meeting ventilation requirements without introducing too much moisture to the living space.
-Additionally, your ventilation solution should be capable of managing the latent load of both ventilated air and air in the living space. The Aprilaire Ventilating Dehumidifier is the best way to effectively and efficiently achieve this.
-Relying on an air conditioner or an ERV to handle high latent loads is not the solution. That is not either’s core function and neither can reduce humidity without performing their core function first.
-A Ventilating Dehumidifier reduces the amount of water vapor (absolute humidity) regardless of temperature by using a condensing coil that operates below dew point.
-While air conditioners are great for heat removal (sensible change) they can’t remove water vapor (latent change) without lowering the temperature of the conditioned space they are in at the same time (over-cooling).
In short, the E100V ensures you can properly ventilate the home while avoiding issues related to increased moisture – such as mold, rot and decreased homeowner comfort and health.
