Honeywell Whole-House Dehumidification Systems
Serving West Volusia County, FL
A serious problem facing homeowners today is poor indoor air quality, according to the American Lung Association. The roots of this problem can be traced directly to our need for energy-efficient homes to minimize the effects of high energy costs.
Unfortunately, making homes tighter and more energy-efficient also reduces the naturally occurring exchange of indoor and outdoor air. Fresh outside air stays out, while air pollutants and excessive humidity can stagnate the indoor air quality over time.
What Are the Top Signs of High Humidity?
You may have a humidity problem in your home if you spot these signs:
- Poor indoor air quality
- Feeling sticky or damp
- Stains on walls and ceilings
- Condensation on windows and other cold surfaces
- Cupped wood flooring
- Bacteria, mold, or mildew growth
- A musty odor in the crawl space or your entire home
Some sources of humidity in homes include:
- People consistently adding moisture into their environment through breathing and perspiration
- Bathing and showering
- Infiltration of outside air through cracks in flooring, electrical outlets, and windows
Many homeowners who are concerned with excess moisture in their homes purchase portable, single room dehumidifiers. However, portable units impact only a portion of the room or area in which they operate and can be difficult to maintain.
What Are the Cons of Portable Dehumidifiers?
When considering a whole-house dehumidifier, Honeywell manufactures top-of-the-line solutions to improve the comfort of your home. If you have struggled in Florida to keep your home cool and comfortable, a portable dehumidifier may not be enough to solve the issue.
Although portable humidifiers can help put off humidity problems, you may want to consider the following drawbacks of this dehumidification unit:
- Takes up valuable space
- Freezes up due to lack of airflow
- Requires a drain pan to be emptied
- Can be noisy or disruptive
If you are considering replacing your portable dehumidifier with a more reliable system, contact us today. Our HVAC contractors can conduct a walk-through of your home to determine what is causing high humidity in your house and provide you with a reliable solution.

Honeywell Whole-House Dehumidification
How To Dehumidify Your Home in West Volusia the Right Way
What homeowners don’t know is whole-house dehumidifiers are more effective and can be less expensive than installing multiple single-room units in a home.

Honeywell whole-house dehumidifiers are installed on central heating and cooling systems out of the living area so that treated air is distributed to all rooms. When combined with your current HVAC system, they help to improve your indoor air quality by removing unwanted moisture from the air.

How Whole-House Dehumidification Works
Honeywell’s whole-house dehumidifier, the DH90 can be installed in virtually any application: ducted with central heating and cooling equipment, standalone in a crawl space or basement, or ducted to remove moisture within a single room or zone.
Once installed, a whole-house dehumidifier automatically senses excess moisture and lowers humidity levels by removing moisture throughout the entire home.
Dehumidification Protects While Away
Whole-house dehumidifiers are the best way to protect vacation properties while the owners are away. When occupied, the thermostat may be set at a high temperature, keeping the AC from running and resulting in higher humidity. The whole-house dehumidifier operates independent from the temperature setting, keeping humidity levels under control even with high temperatures in the home.
Why Honeywell Dehumidification?

The secret is in the core: The heat recovery core of the DH90 acts much like heat recovery ventilation (HRV), moving the air temperatures from one air stream to another.
Cooler air removes more moisture: After the initial air stream is cooled by moving through the evaporator, it runs through the core and pre-cools the new incoming air. The air temperature of the new incoming air is much cooler before hitting the evaporator, removing more moisture with less energy.
