  • Product Overview

    The Williams Air Sponge Whole House Dehumidifier, also known as the Williams Air Dehumidifier DH-130A, is a great solution for eliminating excess moisture from your entire home. This energy-efficient dehumidifier extracts 130 pints of water per day under AHAM conditions (80 degrees F, 60% relative humidity) and 260 pints per day at saturation. It is one of few ducted dehumidifiers that can cover virtually any size home and operate in temperatures as low as 40 degrees F.

    Why Dehumidify Your Whole House?

    Excess humidity can pose many threats to your home and your health. In addition to causing uncomfortable stuffiness and musty smells, untreated humidity can also promote growth of mold and mildew, which can aggravate allergy and asthma conditions and lead to structural damage. With the Williams DH-130A high-capacity dehumidifier, you‘ll maintain a comfortable humidity level and reduce potential harm to your home and health.

    Key Features

    The Williams Air Sponge Dehumidifier is furnished with a variety of features that make installation, operation, and maintenance a breeze. Key highlights include:

    • Automatic Defrost: An automatic defrost function turns off the compressor when frost begins to build up on the interior coils and runs the fan until ice melts, preventing damage to the dehumidifier.
    • Washable Filter: Nylon mesh material makes the permanent air filter durable and reusable even after frequent cleaning.
    • Quiet Operation: High-density lining made of 1-inch-thick insulated material conceals sound, releasing minimal noise during the dehumidifier’s operation.
    • Overflow Protection: An internal float switch disables the dehumidifier’s compressor and stops water production if drain lines are clogged or restricted, keeping water from overflowing.
    • Safety Shut-Down: A built-in shut-off switch automatically turns the power off when the door is opened.
    • Secondary Drain Line: A secondary drain line connection releases water to a visible area, signaling problems with the primary drainage system. Both condensate drains must be trapped external to the dehumidifier and connected according to national and local plumbing codes.
    • Optional Wall-Mounted Control: An optional remote dehumidistat, resembling a thermostat, can be mounted in your home for easy access.

    How It Works

    The Williams Air Sponge Whole House Dehumidifier effectively lowers the humidity in your entire house. First, moist air is drawn into the dehumidifier through the inlet duct. Once air passes through the air filter, airborne contaminants are removed. Next, the air moves through the dehumidifier to the cold evaporator coils. Moisture is then condensed, collected in a stainless steel drain pan, and carried away through a drain hose. After the dehumidification process is complete, clean, moisture-free air is released back into your space, constantly providing a comfortable breathing environment for your home.

    Maintains Optimum Humidity Level

    This whole house dehumidifier consistently monitors the air in each space of your home and automatically adjusts the humidity until it reaches your ideal level. Every hour, the DH-130A’s fan runs for 15 minutes and draws in a sampling of air to evaluate and assess the humidity level. A built-in dehumidistat senses when the relative humidity exceeds the preset level. If excess moisture is detected in the air, the humidity sensor signals the compressor to activate. The fan and compressor will continue to operate until the air returns to your desired humidity level.

    Two Installation Methods

    The Williams Air Sponge Whole House Dehumidifier can run as a standalone appliance, covering a space of up to 3,000 square feet, or it can be connected to your current central heating and air conditioning system using insulated ducts to provide unlimited square foot coverage.

    Ducted Operation

    To install the Williams dehumidifier to an existing HVAC system, connect insulated flexible ducts from the DH-130A’s inlet collar to the return ducts on your air conditioner and the outlet collar to your AC outlet.

    Standalone Operation

    For easier setup and immediate use, the whole house dehumidifier can be placed on a flat surface in basements, attics, or crawl spaces to run as a standalone dehumidifier. To set up this configuration, you must have an electrician hardwire the unit into your electrical system and run a drain line. Rubber mounting feet allow you to properly level the dehumidifier without scratching the bottom or causing unnecessary vibration. You can also suspend the DH-130A dehumidifier above ceilings using an optional hanger kit (sold separately), which includes four brackets and four rubber isolators.

    Additional Features and Specifications

    • Low Maintenance – The whole house dehumidifier requires very little upkeep. Simply clean the filter whenever you replace your HVAC filter and flush the drain trap with water once a year.
    • Fits Any Size Home – The Williams Air dehumidifier effectively absorbs moisture in low temperatures, the most humid conditions, and spaces of any size when ducted into an existing HVAC system.
    • Energy-Efficient – With the DH-130A providing dry, cool air throughout your home, you can raise the temperature on your air conditioner and save on cooling costs, while using less energy.
    • Duct Connections – The system includes two 8-inch diameter round collars for duct connections.
    • Installation – Williams suggests that installation be performed by a qualified service technician and must comply with all national and local codes.
    • Drain Connections – The system features 0.75-inch primary and secondary drain outlets

                      Good substantial product. Bought for power, and ability to duct to get widespread air flow in large crawlspace. Easy to install, working lke a champ so far. Outlet pipes of flexible polyvinyl were compressed, so we had to cut off and use PVC, which the product should switch to using as the crushing is likely widespread result of placement of tubes and packing for shipment, and may not be notced by a less experienced homeowner or installer. Very good and flexible electrical controls which can allow for coordinating with HVAC, or for adding additional external fans.

                      I use this product in my 2000 square foot boarding kennels. Dogs (about 40 of them)put a lot of humidity in the air when they pant. It removes about 5 gallons of water in a 24 hr period. It keeps the humidity in check without issue. The only issue I had was a missing screw that allowed a bracket to move during shipping. A safety switch was not depressed enough to let the unit run. Once that was fixed it worked well. One last note, if you want to install a remote control, buy it here. You won't find one at a hardware or big box store.

                      Comments about Williams Air Sponge Whole House Dehumidifier (DH-130A):

                      I purchased the Williams Air Sponge to use in a drying room. Out of all the units I shopped around for this one had the highest water removal capacity and was also the lowest priced.

                      You can't find anything comparable to this unit in this price range.

                      Installation was easy especially in our case as we are running it separate from the heat source directly ducted in and out of the room. There is very little to hook up as it is all self contained in the unit. Another great feature of this unite is the condensate pump. Most other higher priced units do not have one and it can be a hundred dollars or so to add one plus the time to hook it up.

                      Shipping from Sylvane was fast. Too fast. I didn't even know it was on it's way. the day after I ordered it it arrived via UPS freight and I had left the business early so I was not there to receive it. My only complaint in the whole purchase is with UPS freight. Since I wasn't there to receive they called and I scheduled the next day to have it delivered. UPS did not show up the next day and claimed I never called them to schedule. The next day they brought it after I rearranged my whole schedule for them. Two weeks later UPS sends me a bill for a redelivery charge! Bogus!

                      I would buy again from Sylvane but I wouldn't let them use UPS freight for shipping ever!
