I have an older(110+) home with very high humidity(my basement was at 90% before i turned on my dehumid...Its been humid here in north jersey, but i cant get a handle on it. The house is a small cottage(14oo sf excluding basemnt)with a stone basement(partial walkout). It smells musty throughout the house. A couple of questions: My basement is broken up in to 4 rooms with open door ways, whats the best aproach to lower the humid? Can anyone recomend an hvac contractor in north jersey that is helpful with these problems? I have called the few listed on april airs web site and cant get a call returned. I have also called 20 others out of the phone book, but no one is interested. My 14 month old daughter already has asthma and im thinking of selling the house. Sorry about the long post...any help is greatly appreciated.
