It’s been a while since I have taken the ASD training. Lately with the heat we have had a few jobs where while running our equipment in the home it made the house get up to 140 degrees. Am I supposed to run temp a/c as well? I know too much heat will cause damage. Please advise. Thanks, Kevin

I prefer high heat with plenty of dehumidification. I wouldn't run a/c unless its occupied.

Depending upon the specific model of dehumidifier you are operating, performance will begin to decline pretty quickly somewhere bewteen 100 F and 120 F.

Yes, for most efficient dehumidification, you should keep the temps down to around 100 by using the buildings built in AC and if necessary temporary air conditioning. Charge for the portable AC.

Phoenix makes a nice Arctic Max unit for this very purpose.

I know one of my PM's freaks when it gets above 85 degrees F, and then wonders why it's not drying fast enough...
