VHDA recently proposed changes to the 2015 Low Income Housing Tax Credit Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) including a $1500 upward adjustment of cost limits per unit if all apartments are equipped with electrical and plumbing hook-ups for a hard-wired dehumidification system.
This is exciting news for Virginia tax credit developers. The expectation is several states will soon follow Virginia’s example. Many property owners and managers nationwide are struggling with excessive internal humidity and moisture as the unintended consequences of building tighter apartments and meeting building performance design standards.
Our AWARD WINNING in-wall dehumidifier, the IW-25-1, is currently the only solution available that was engineered and designed specifically for apartments. This makes the IW-25-1 ideal for developers who intend to take advantage of the additional $1500 allocation.
Prior to the introduction of the IW-25-1 by Innovative Dehumidifier Systems, owners trying to solve indoor air issues and prevent mold were forced to choose between ineffective portable units or expensive ducted systems.
