Dehumidifiers are designed to reduce humidity levels, making your living or work space less hospitable to allergens such as mold, mildew and dust mites. Whether you live in a humid environment or a small space, moisture can build up and provide allergens with fertile conditions for growth. A dehumidifier runs quietly and efficiently in the background to eradicate the possibility for allergen growth and associated ‘musty’ or ‘rotting’ odors.
Dehumidifiers work by sucking in the air from one end, taking the moisture out of it, and blowing the cleansed air back into the room. Moisture is removed using the same process as an air conditioner then collected in a water reservoir which is drained manually or automatically when full. There are two key measurements you can use to compare dehumidifiers; water removed per day and efficiency. If you experience high levels of humidity you’ll require a bigger machine whilst a persistently humid space, like a damp basement, will require a more efficient machine.
