Re: [APD] Re: Excessive Humidity
Air exchangers, also known by the less technical term
"vents," can do a lot to affect the huidity in a room or
house. Venting the humid air vents the moisture. But when
you pump out the air, you pump out the heat in winter -- in
summer, you pump out the cooler inside air. Heat exchangers
help reduce the transfer of heat between inside and outside
the room or house. But there's added cost for those more
energy efficient units.
The simplest method of venting is to open a window. If you
have double hung windows, opening one at the top a bit and
one at the bottom is a slightly less simple way to do it.
Once you move up to forced air, which is also known by the
less technical terms "fan" and "blower," the costs start to
go up. But $300 seeems to me like a lot to pay for forced
air, especially if it doesn't include a heat exchanger.
