How do I go about adding a dehumidifier to PHPP? Working in a hot and humid climate now, and PHPP is showing excessively high humidity (to be expected), but I'm not sure how to model a dehumidifier into the program. Thank you!

Where am I?

Hi Justin,

The PHPP input is on the 'Cooling Units' tab.  There's a checkbox for 'Additional Dehumidification' and a couple of additional inputs there, one of which is the seasonal efficiency of the unit, which you should be able to find or calculate from the manufacturer's data sheet.  If not, I'd recommend using a low number (maybe 0.5-0.7) as a placeholder so your PER numbers are realistic.
