Dehumidifier in Winter?
I have a second home in Vermont (North East) that I recently resided adding 2" of EPS foam as well. I can already feel how much "tighter" (cool during those hot summer months and keeping the daytime heat at night) the house feels so now I'm on to trying to make sure the air is OK in the house for us and the wall system.
I keep the setpoints on my thermastats (1st and second floor) at between 45 - 50 degrees when not there. I can monitor the temperature and humidity both in and outside
Ideally, should I try to keep the inside of the house at some humidity level in relation to the outside temperature? And if so where should I place the humidifier?
Any ideas would be appreciated.
