    1) Sump pump... I don't have one, and don't need one. But the liner is sealed everywhere... up the walls (except for a 5" area under the joists for termite inspections), about 18" up all the piers,...

    Sealing my CS has proven to be one of the best things I've done to the house. I could kick myself for not doing it years sooner.

    What I've done:
    -Modified a hurricane-type entry door/frame for CS...

    Yes, i just got to thinking about a 3-1/2" plenum with just a thin plastic sheeting separating the cool dry air from the hot damp air... would this not cause sweating issues? Or maybe I just need to...

    Never mind the truss question. After I thought about it and what you guys are saying, I realize its a dumb idea. Thanks for the replies!

    I do need insulation, it's not so much the cost as it is the time to do it. Lots of obstacles to work around, but I'm going to try to tackle it when the weather cools down. Can I put a vapor barrier...

    TB, I was talking about maybe upgrading to a ductless mini split unit. If not that, then stay with my original plan of the window or wall unit. It sounds like a dehumidifier is a given, regardless of...

    Ok, thanks(?). Your reply is a bit confusing to me... I wasn't asking about a portable unit, I was asking about a mini split system (ductless) versus the window or wall unit. Am I missing something?

    Thanks. I put the Sante Fe in a month shy of four years ago... it has been absolutely trouble free and works exactly like it's supposed to. Very happy with it, and have recommended it to several...

    The dehumidifier... Are you talking about a cheaper unit from HD or Lowes? I have a Sante Fe under my house, but that was over $1K by itself.
  10. Thanks TB! That is the way I will go.

    Thanks TB! That is the way I will go.
  11. Advice for humidity control and comfort in detached building

    I'm looking to install a window or thru-wall type AC unit in my shop... the purpose is to knock down humidity levels (my mill table and vise, etc, will rust, it's a constant fight), and I want a...

    Thanks for the replies!

    TB: A very generous offer you made there! I appreciate this and may take you up on it when I have a solid action plan. I KNOW the house leaks, I just don't know if or how...
  14. Will fresh air/positive pressure be effective in my case?

    Like the subject line says, I need to know if introducing fresh (filtered) air to my return will be effective in my home. Here is what I have:

    -Home is a decent brick (~40 yr old) house, not...

    Thanks! I did use styrofoam...it worked, but only to certain extent. I feel better knowing that its normal.
  16. Question about the field charger (in Clean Effects)

    More precisely, the electrodes that are in the field charger...is it normal for the electrodes in these units to corrode with use? My CE has been in use for 7 months with 2 cleanings....taking it...

    Too bad you're so short on space. I can vouch for the Santa Fe (mine is an Advance). Right now it is actually pulling the RH down more than I had planned on....with where it is set at, my crawl is...
  18. Fresh air and crawl conditioning...is this feasible?

    My crawlspace (1100 ft sq) has been completely encapsulated with Clean-Space. The indoor unit is in the crawlspace. I want to get the crawl temperature close to what the indoor temp is during...

    Do I need an ERV?

    I'm getting thoroughly confused the more I try to learn about ventilation, ERV 's, and HRV's. In an ongoing effort to obtain the best IAQ I can, I've upgraded the whole heatpump/HVAC/duct system, and...

    Call All Dry of Carolinas and get a quote for an encapsulation. There are probably others that can do it too. Then buy a Santa Fe Advance dehumidifier. You won't have humidity problems in your CS...

    Ok, so it sounds like I DO need to stub off a duct from the supply side to the crawl. And it also sounds like I either need a return cut in, or cut a vent through the floor to connect the living...

    I suppose the thinking behind it are the claims that 30% of the air in your home circulates in from the crawlspace(?). If you improve the quality of the air in the crawlspace, you also improve the...

    I'm not doubting your results. But didn't you say the filter was compacted with dirt....or was that a different unit, or after cleaning, that you gave the result for? Also, how many CE units have you...

    I'm in upstate South Carolina. Not as bad as the coast, but it still gets really humid here. After I had the new (complete heatpump/duct system) installed last September, you could follow the...
