Choosing the Right Dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers create a more balanced environment in a home, reducing moisture in the air in the summer and winter and can:
- Prevent mold growth
- increase room temperatures
- Stop cold drafts
- Dry washing faster
- Eliminate condensation
- Eliminates musty smells
- Helps maintain a healthier home environment
A dehumidifier works by pulling warm air in and collecting its moisture. When the warm air being pulled in touches the cold coil in the dehumidifier the water in the air condenses, forms on the coils and then falls in to the collection bucket at the bottom of the appliance. Then the air runs over a hot coil which brings the air back up to room temperature before blowing it back into the room.
What kind of humidifier should you use?
Brands like Meaco offer a wide range of home dehumidifiers.
Mini Rechargeable Dehumidifiers
For use in small spaces where larger units are not practical, like in cupboards, wardrobes, storage boxes, or in a boat or a motorhome.
Small Home Dehumidifiers
For drying just one room
For medium to large properties and the cheapest way to extract moisture in a warm house.
For damp problems caused by floods like a burst pipe or faulty washing machine. Also good for very large houses.
Use a special humidity-absorbing material which is charged to drive off humidity by heating the material and attaching it to a moving belt during the cycling operation.
Also called Peltier heat pump and condenses water vapor from the air to generate cool surfaces.
Can be used as an ionic pump to move humidity in or out of an sealed enclosure where maintenance is difficult.
