Ultra-Aire, a leading manufacturer of dehumidifiers, has received Green Certification for its MD33 In-Wall Dehumidifier by Home Innovation Research Labs. Green certified products can be used by builders to earn points toward achieving National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS) Certification for single-family homes and multi-family buildings.

The Ultra-Aire MD33 In-Wall Dehumidifier earned the Green Certification designation for the following practice guideline:

  • 903.7    In climate zones 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A and 5A, equipment must be installed and programmed to maintain relative humidity (RH) at or below 60 percent (7 points)

The Ultra-Aire MD33 is the industry’s first true in-wall dehumidifier that provides dedicated moisture control in multi-family dwellings, adaptive reuse buildings, hotels, and senior and student housing. The unit features a slim-profile of only 5 ¾” deep, allowing it to easily fit inside 2” x 6” or through 2″ x 4″ interior stud walls and provide a solution in environmental control technology that the industry has sought for years.

“We are very excited to receive this certification for the MD33 In-Wall Dehumidifier,” said Nikki Krueger, Industry Manager for Ultra-Aire. “There are currently 32 states that recognize the NGBS for their Qualified Allocation Plans for affordable multi-family housing construction. By having the MD33 Green Certified, builders can now receive points for including a dedicated in-wall dehumidifier as an integral part of the mechanical system. This unit not only protects the physical investment of the building, but also against other issues such as poor indoor air quality, property damage, comfort complaints, and reputational risk and liability.”

The Ultra-Aire MD33 is Energy Star® Certified and runs independent of the HVAC system to ensure that the space is protected from high humidity levels. The unit removes up to 33 pints of water a day and features a digital RH controller behind a tamper-proof cover. Sized for up to 1,200 square feet, the MD33 is the perfect solution for all multi-family applications. The unit can be hardwired into existing electrical or directly plugged into a 110v-outlet with the provided cord. It is designed to drain directly into a hub-drain or plumbing line for a truly hands-off dehumidification system.
