"It's not the heat-it's the humidity."
Today's homes require effective humidity control more than ever before. Equipped
with super efficient air-conditioning systems, near-impermeable vapor barriers
and improved insulation, many new homes suffer from excess moisture. For over 14
years, Swift Air Mechanical has defined the ultimate in home humidity control.
Don't just treat the symptoms, remove them with Swift Air Mechanical Whole-House
alone can not satisfy your home's humidity requirements. Your air conditioning
system is designed to control temperature, not humidity, and only removes
humidity as a byproduct of cooling. In the Spring and Fall seasons when it's
still cool outside but damp inside, your air conditioning isn't running and your
house is uncomfortable-you need a Swift Air Mechanical Whole-Home Dehumidifier.
are commonly found in outdoor air. However, any house can develop a mold problem
given the right conditions. You might not see it growing on the walls, but it
may still be present in your home. Molds require two factors to grow indoors:
(1) free moisture that can occur in the form of relative humidity above 50
percent, leakage from pipes or foundations, or any ongoing source of water, and
(2) something to grow on."
How Does It Work?
Swift Air Mechanical Whole-House Dehumidifier installs as part of your home's
central heating and cooling system, with a rated capacity of 90 pints per day.
The dehumidifier measures the condition of your home's air to decide when to
run. An integrated air cycling feature will activate the HVAC blower to cycle
air throughout the house to balance conditions. The dehumidifier has an optional
ventilation damper that can mix outside air into the process. Dehumidification
reduces the unwanted effects of high humidity such as stuffiness, sticky
surfaces, mold growth and more.
A Swift Air Mechanical Whole-House
Dehumidifier works equally well in new or existing homes, and is truly the
complete solution for your home's excess indoor humidity problems. "There
is no practical way to eliminate all molds indoors; the way to control indoor
mold growth is to control moisture."

products) are one of the most common triggers for allergies and asthma? The
Environmental Protection Agency advises keeping your home's relative humidity
between 30-50% to avoid dust mite infestation.
Whole-House vs. Portables
humidity doesn't just exist in one room of your house. Portables can only
operate in one area, not your entire home. Portables invade your living space
and often require buckets to collect water that must be emptied once or multiple
times a day. When choosing between a portable unit or whole-house
dehumidification system-the choice is simple.
