Designed for mid-sized homes humid climates, the Aprilaire 1850/1850W dehumidifier is the newer, more-environmentally friendly version of the 1750A. This version runs earth-friendly R-410A refrigerant and has a MERV 8 rating.
This unit has a capacity of 95 pints (~12 gallons) per day! It also works perfectly for crawlspace applications.
The Aprilaire 1850 is a refrigerant dehumidifier. A powerful blower inside the unit draws air into the cabinet, filters and removes moisture from the air, and then discharges the dry air to the home.
Inside the cabinet, a sealed refrigeration system (R-410A) removed moisture by moving the air through a series of tubes and fins that are kept colder than the dew point of the incoming air. The condensed moisture drips into the drain pan, and then to a drain tube routed to the nearest floor drain.
After the moisture is removed, the air moves through a second coil where it is reheated before being sent back into the home.
