Humidity control other than plug in De/humidifier
I was wondering if there are any methods for controlling extreme humidity in the summer and extremely dry conditions in the winter that could be automatically implemented (other than just plugging in a humidifier or a dehumidifier).
I have a ground source heat pump in my 180 yr old stone house (uninsulated, because stone), and the humidity levels are extremely high in central Ontario in the summer (like, slippery floor level humidity) and extremely dry in the winter (furniture crackingly dry).
Is my problem as simple as ‘just go talk to a HVAC guy and get him to install a full humidification system’, and if so what sorts of things do i need to be aware of? Are there things i should be steering clear of or will a standard system just plug and play? What is this going to set me back and are there alternate ways of doing it? I’ve tried plug in dehumidifiers and humidifiers and they do pretty much nothing.
