Lennox Introduces Whole-Home Dehumidifier System
At the upcoming 2007 International Builders’ Show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Lennox® (Booth W1983) will be introducing a whole-home dehumidifier system that manages the moisture in the air to make the home more comfortable and to improve its air quality.
The Humiditrol® is installed in the home’s existing duct system, eliminating the need for substantial space. It is designed to be easily integrated with Lennox’s new R410A cooling products and any Lennox variable speed furnace or air handler.
The system uses an exclusive SignatureStat™ home comfort control to control humidity throughout the home. Humiditrol is optimized for use with the XC21 air conditioner and XP19 heat pump.
Humidity is an issue across North America and has been difficult to control. In the spring and fall, many areas experience high humidity levels and mild temperatures. Home owners often lower their thermostats to control the humidity, but this can be costly and make the home too cool.
The Humiditrol system removes moisture from the air without overcooling the space. Drier air feels cooler, so home owners can set their thermostats higher to help reduce their energy costs and feel more comfortable.
Lennox’s own indoor air quality experts and third-party national studies indicate that for the best comfort and health, the home’s relative humidity levels should range between 35% and 50%. By maintaining optimal humidity, Humiditrol helps create an environment that is less conducive to mold and mildew and minimizes the impact of many potential airborne pollutants.
