Responding to increasing consumer demand for whole-house solutions to challenges such as mold, mildew, dust mites, and bacteria, Lennox Industries introduced Humiditrol(R), the first fully integrated whole-house dehumidification system.
Designed to operate with the Lennox SignatureStat(TM) thermostat, and integrated with new Lennox(R)-brand cooling products using R-410A refrigerant and any variable-speed Lennox furnace or air handler, Humiditrol is said to effectively and efficiently control humidity levels throughout the home.
According to Lennox, the system significantly outperforms conventional dehumidifiers, and is capable of removing as much as three times more moisture while consuming less energy and without negatively impacting temperature.
"Consumer studies regarding indoor air quality, as well as recent news reports about the health dangers of mold, show humidity control is an increasingly higher priority issue with the general public," said Bob McDonough, president and COO, LII Heating and Cooling.
"Our development of the residential Humiditrol system is a significant step forward in maintaining optimum humidity levels in home environments, making the places where we live not only more comfortable, but healthier. It's an innovative whole-house solution to a common problem, and one that is widely viewed as a growing market."
