In the process of building. I have another post about what to do with new construction, but here is a question about dehumidification and fresh air intake.
House is two story 3400 sq ft with two story great room and foyer in central Georgia. Two heap pump systems (trane)I want to introduce fresh air into the home. Hvac installers suggested a fresh air kit from honeywell. Says it works well and does not cost very much. I asked about dehumidification as well and they suggested the honeywell 65 pint but said that could be added later once I live in the house and decide if it is needed. I also want to pull fresh air in when bath and stove fans come on.
What are the thoughts on this?
One of the things that was said to me was that when I run the AC, it will pull the humidity out; however, I tend to not want to run the AC when we are at work and also dont want to run it during shoulder seasons which can be much during sept to may. Is this proper or am I setting up for failure? As a side note, I do this with my current 1400 sq ft home and end up turning the AC on to get humidity down even though the indoor temp is ok since there are no IAQ devices on this one.
Im looking for the best bang for the buck since the budget for the new house is pretty much tapped.
