Innovative Dehumidifier Systems recently released an ENERGY STAR-certified version of its IW25-1 dehumidifier for multifamily housing. IW25 ENERGY STAR consumes 23 percent less power and uses 35 percent less maximum absorbed current than IW25-1 for approximately one-third-lower energy costs.
IW25 ENERGY STAR can be installed quickly—usually in less than an hour—between existing studs or surface-mounted to an interior wall. Once installed, it operates independently of the HVAC system to quietly and efficiently remove excess moisture from apartments.
IW25 ENERGY STAR has a tamper-proof cover that can be removed only with a special tool. Epoxy-coated coils extend the life of the equipment by preventing corrosion and improving indoor-air quality. A protective shroud around the main circuit board is designed to add protection. Auxiliary pump safety contacts were added to the unit control, allowing the unit to be shut off in the event of condensate pump failure. A revised grille provides for smoother and more efficient airflow. Lastly, a new compressor and the addition of a row to the condenser coil increase efficiency.
