Built in dehumidifier: Any suggestions for a small space?
I have a 400sf workshop in Atlanta. It's not air conditioned and I'm interested in installing a built-in dehumidifier. Any suggestions for what type I should use?

If an ordinary residential unit won't work for you, then you should consider something such as a Santa Fe, Ultra Aire, or another unit made by Therma-Stor. These are the kind that can be ducted, have air filters, etc. You probably will need to purchase and install through a professional HVAC company.

What Abe said is correct. Professional installation of anything built is would be recommended. Depending on what type of proejcts you'll be doing in the workshop you may need special filters to keep the dehumidifier from getting clogged up.

When temperatures and humidity rise in hot weather, a dehumidifier is a good defense to keep mold and mildew at bay. But to be most effective, you first need to address the sources of the moisture in your home.

it is very important to maintain a correct temperature level to control humidity in a room. Mold and mildew grow in a humid environment and this will also affect your plants. Take care!
