What Is Passive Dehumidification and How It Benefits You

Published on: April 25, 2012

As a homeowner, you may feel uncomfortable due to high indoor humidity levels. While your air conditioner both cools and dehumidifies your home, you might find that the air conditioner alone does not remove a sufficient amount of the moisture from the air. One solution to indoor humidity problems is a passive dehumidification system. Passive dehumidification systems offer an environmentally friendly, affordable and reliable solution to increase the comfort of you and your family.


What Is Passive Dehumidification
Passive dehumidification is reducing the humidity level of your home without the use of moving parts, pumps or the use of a power source. Passive dehumidification is a separate system from your air conditioning system but enhances the performance of your air conditioner by reducing its workload. The passive dehumidification system consists of a set of pipes to recover heat and reduce humidity. The pipes are composed of copper and have internal dampers to prevent backwards airflow. The difference between the temperatures of the pipes dissipates humidity from your home. A new passive dehumidification system can be installed around your existing air conditioning system or adjacent to the air handler to prevent space constraints in your home.


Benefits of Passive Dehumidification
As a home or business owner, you will appreciate the many benefits of passive dehumidification. There is nothing in the passive dehumidification pipe system that can wear out and rarely require any sort of repairs. Due to the lack of mechanical parts in a passive dehumidification system, only minimal maintenance is required. Since the passive dehumidification system reduces the humidity level of your home, your air conditioner will not have to run as long or frequently to cool and dehumidify your home, resulting in energy savings and reduced wear and tear. You might even be able to downsize your air conditioner as a result of installing a passive dehumidification system. The passive dehumidification works as well during the summer months as the winter months, offering consistent comfort no matter what the season. Passive dehumidification systems require little space to install.
