looking for contact of whole house dehumidifier installer

Asked by Marc M., 22101 Fri May 27, 2011

Would you know someone that would install a whole house dehumidifier? I contacted 2 HVAC installer and either they are over charging or don't want to come if they are not changing the whole AC system.

i suggest you contact other HAVC companies to determine a solution to your problem. We use KRAFFT and have for 18 years. My neighbors use ARC. Humidity in a home can come from a series of issues and while I can sell real estate, am not qualified to provide you HVAC solutions. That takes a qualified, liscensed and insured vendor.

As a follow-up you might consider investigating the problem. Is your home on a crawl space, is the mositure entering through a basement wall, or is your HVAC system not properly sized for your home. I have seen many small homes with a HVAC system that cools too quickly thus not allowing the air to be properly conditioned.

Try M.R. Stride, 445 Nelson St., in Vienna. They are top-rated by Consumers' Checkbook for both quality of work and value for money. Their number is: 703-893-5161.

That being said, I'm going to make a no-cost suggestion. If you are running your fan all the time, put the fan on automatic ( on only when the AC is working ) during the day. This allows the condenser coil to do its job (dehumidify) much more effectively. I did this in my own home and saw dramatic change in humidity-much lower and more comfortable. If you try this, please E-mail me and let me know if this works for you, too. Thanks!

I am still running the fan all the time from 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM to move the cold air to the upper ( bedroom ) level.

I would suggest Argent Heating and Cooling in Vienna. They have decent prices and do a great job.

I've been happy with Adco. I installed a Carrier Infinity Series with a de-humidification function.
They do great work. George Rennolds 703-368-8106.
