New 5 Bro. Policy, good or bad?

Attn: All Five Brothers Contractors
RE: Bidding Dehumidifiers
Attention Valued Five Brothers Vendors,
As you are all aware, humidity is one of the most common causes of mold
growth within vacant dwellings. Due to this steadily increasing issue, Five
Brothers has implemented a procedural change. We anticipate that these
changes will reduce the level of humidity/moisture in order to prevent mold
growth.
Please note that one dehumidifier is no longer being considered sufficient
enough to eliminate mold growth. Going forward, if humidity is found to be the
cause of mold at a property you are required to submit a bid to install four (4)
dehumidifiers on each floor of the property to remove excess moisture and
humidity. This procedural change is effective immediately and will apply to all
account types.
Please contact your state representative with any questions you may have.

This is hilarious! Get ready to have your dehumidifiers stolen out of any property accessible with HUD keys.

How stupid. For what they are paying, none of us are installing an LGR dehu. The refrigerant ones start freezing up in these un heated shacks and are so inefficient at low temperature, the answer is "Lets put in more"? Genius. Why don't they just require a 120 pint instead of the cheapo 30 pints? Nevermind, dumb question.

Holy crap, did I read that right? 4 PER FLOOR?

I actually agree with them. 1 or 4 not plugged in does the same. I'd put one 40pt in each room. They expect you to use cheap dehu's that aren't monitored.

4 Per Floor!!!??? that can't be right. 2 story home with a basement they want 12 of them in it? Running 24 7 that is going to suck up some watts! Not to mention almost kiln drying all the wood idiots. Where are you going to drain them all or what are they going to pay you to empty them when they are full.
Carpeted wall logic at its finest!
