Dehumidifier During Winter Months?


Hi, I live in a Franklin, WI condo with a finished basement (rec room). During the summer we run a dehumidifier. Is it necessary to run it during the winter months? We have no moisture problems. Thanks.



DehumidifierSorry, but there is no simple answer to this. It depends on the moisture balance in your home and if the lower, finished level is connected to the central heating system.

I would anticipate that with a newer condo and a finished basement, you don’t need to operate a dehumidifier. I assume the space is connected to the forced-air furnace, so basically the moisture level in the lower level will be the same as the upper level. Moisture will move quickly through the forced-air heating system.
