A dehumidifier is an appliance which reduces the amount of humidity in the air usually for health reasons, comfort or even to eliminate odours. Humidity levels can breed mildew and mould, triggering allergies or other health problems. Naturally, the damper your space, the more capacity you’ll need in a dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers vary according to how many litres of moisture it can remove in 24 hours. Typically, they range from 12 to 40 litres per day.
How a Dehumidifier Works
To remove moisture, dehumidifiers use a fan to move air over refrigerated coils, which pull moisture from the air and drip it into a tank.
What to Know before you buy a Dehumidifier
1. Noise Level
Noise is a concern in living spaces and therefore when purchasing, the recommended noise levels range between 55 to 67 decibels.
2. Power Saving
A dehumidifier should have a very good energy saving efficiency. This means a big saving in operational costs.
The large capacity models remove moisture quickly and efficiently in the toughest situations.
4. Fix Existing Problems
Even the best dehumidifier may not work effectively if too much outside moisture seeps into your home. Keep water from seeping into your home or office.
