It’s quite likely humid or hot or both in Houston, Texas. As a builder/buyer of high performance homes who naturally wants to deliver/buy a comfortable healthy home, just how do you most efficiently and cost-effectively cool and dehumidify inside air while maintaining sufficient introduction of outside air for ventilation? And perhaps most importantly, how do you condition for humidity when the season calls for neither heating nor cooling? These are two knotty, nasty questions with a bunch of potential answers, none of which have ever been systematically explored or compared….until now.
