Question about Heating & Cooling
Hello. Reading your description of the air flow patterns, it appears that you have good reason to be questioning this installation. All of the dehumidified air should circulate through the house. I recommend that you contact the company that installed this system and have a supervisor come out to inspect this job. If it is a one man operation, have the installer come back and go through the system with you to explain what he did and why. This will be the time to question him about your concerns. And of course, your back up is always the Better Business Bureau and your State Attorney General's Office if you need to file written, formal complaints. Regards, Joe

I think you are right and it is hooked up wrong. The air that is also coming out of "FROM" the dehumidifier should also go to the main duct suppling air to the house, not blowing back outside again... the dehumidifier is doing nothing but costing you money. At least if I have read you correctly.
My question is this? Do you live in the deep south where you have high humidity all of the time?
Please comment back to me as to where you live so that I can get a better idea of what the guy was trying to do there.
Then I can better help you get it right.
I will be in and out this afternoon, but I will get back to you..
