Energy efficiency has transformed the way we source and use energy, as cleaner, more affordable, and more productive housing becomes a priority. There are many ways to make your property more energy-efficient, from simple window coverings to purchasing new appliances. Energy efficient products are essential to help save energy, money and help protect the climate. The more ENERGY STAR® Certified home appliances you use, the lower your electricity bills will be while also helping to protect the environment from greenhouse gas emissions.
“In 2018, ENERGY STAR® Certified products helped consumers save 200 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, avoid $20 billion in energy costs, and achieve 150 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.”1
SMART ENERGY CHOICES
• Save Energy
• Save Money
• Help Protect the Climate
Just the Right Size
To effectively size a home dehumidifier, consider both the amount of moisture to be removed (in pints) daily, vs the size of the space, as well as the overall humidity (indoor and outdoor). Both indoor and outdoor humidity are important since the humidity levels outside will affect the humidity in your space.
You may be tempted to purchase a dehumidifier with more power than needed, but this is not to your advantage, as oversized units will use more power and produce more noise. A dehumidifier that is oversized for the space can lead to higher electric usage.
The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) standard for testing the energy saving factor of a dehumidifier is at average conditions, 80°/60% relative humidity (RH). The moisture removal capacity of a dehumidifier at saturated conditions, 90°/90%, almost doubles the amount of water that can be removed. The IW25-4 dehumidifier* can remove up to 29.5 pints per day at AHAM (80°/60% RH), the units’ ability to remove moisture nearly doubles at 58 ppd in saturated conditions (90°/90%). Since the average size family of four produces roughly 11 liters, or 25 pints of moisture daily, through common everyday tasks, such as showers, washing clothes, and cooking.2
Energy Saving Moisture Control
The tankless IW25-4 dehumidifier continuously collects moisture in the air, condensing into water over the unit’s all aluminum and microchannel condenser coils. Once the IW25-4 dehumidification system reaches desired set point it automatically switches into stand-by mode; in the event of a power outage the IW25-4 will restart back to previous settings, for reliable moisture control. Choosing an ENERGY STAR® dehumidifier can deliver savings on energy bills without sacrificing performance, features, and comfort, while protecting the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions..

*Layout and moisture conditions vary in every apartment and home; in typical conditions, the IW-25 can maintain the RH of 59% or less but is not guaranteed.
