The Humiditrol dehumidification system for split systems improves humidity control and reduce the spread of allergens. High humidity levels, rather than room temperature, activate the dehumidification cycle to help improve indoor-air quality. If a room's or building's humidity level exceeds the dehumidification system's set point, the SignatureStat control activates the system, which works with the heating and cooling system to remove excess moisture by reheating cooled air. Humidity is removed at the evaporator coil. By reducing humidity, this reheat design helps control the growth of mold, mildew, and dust mites, which have been linked to allergies and asthma. Available as a field-installed accessory, the dehumidification system can be matched with three-phase S-Class and T-Class 3- to 5-ton R-410A commercial air-conditioning or heat-pump split systems.
Useful for small businesses, Payne heat pumps deliver cooling efficiency with a seasonal energy-efficiency ratio of 13 and heating efficiency with a heating seasonal performance factor of 7.7. Copper tubing and aluminum fin coils in the units result in quiet, energy-efficient comfort and provide heat transfer for heating and cooling.
