How much will a dehumidifier cost to run?

Over the past decade, we at BaseAire have identified that most people will hesitate to buy a dehumidifier because that are worried about their energy bill increases. It is, for this reason, we have invested in state of the art manufacturing plant and hired highly qualified engineers, to create the best energy efficient BaseAire dehumidifier.

A BaseAire dehumidifier will save you over $700 annually in energy cost when compared with conventional dehumidifiers.

  1. New innovative dehumidifier designs allow it to consume less electricity while extracting more moisture from the house.
  2. Our dehumidifier warms the air once it has been processed which reduces the amount of energy consumed by the air conditioner when warming the house.

We at BaseAire, recommend that you should avoid buying two small capacity dehumidifiers, instead buy one large capacity dehumidifier. It might be cheaper to buy two dehumidifiers but the cost to operate the two dehumidifiers will be greater. Plus two dehumidifiers will produce twice the noise, which can make the very uncomfortable.

What is the recommended relative humidity level?

The levels of humidity change throughout the year outside as the weather changes. There is nothing you can do to control outside humidity levels, however, your indoor humidity levels should range from 30% to 50% as recommended by the environmental protection agency and American medical association.

Conditions above 60% relative humidity level allow growth of mold, bacteria, and mildew.

Conditions below than 25% relative humidity cause skin and eye irritation.

A BaseAire dehumidifier will ensure the relative humidity in your house is maintained at 45 -50% percent to maintain indoor comfort.

ii. Increased humidity will make your home the perfect environment for mold, mildew, and dust mite growth! Known as some of the most common allergy triggers, this can cause health issues.
iii. Skin allergies.
iv. Wood warping – since wood can absorb some of the excess moisture, this makes the wood warp, causing wooden floors to feel uneven as well as wooden doors and windows not closing properly.
v. Appliance failure – in your home, if the excess moisture can condense inside the appliances, this can cause fluid damage to said appliances.
vi. Wallpaper and paint will peel within a space with excess humidity.

Repairing the appliances or replacing the rotting wood can be expensive for many homeowners, hence the importance of a BaseAire dehumidifier.

Common signs of high humidity in the house:

You can easily determine the humidity levels of your home using a hygrometer. But if you do not have access to one, here are some of the signs that show the presence of high humidity in your home:

- Constant reoccurring condensation on window planes and glass doors, especially in the morning.
- Water spots on the walls and ceiling.
- Black mold growth on the walls or ceiling.

In heavily moisturized spaces, like the basement, you will see condensed water on the walls or floor.

How does a dehumidifier work?

Dehumidifiers are electric appliances that extract excess humidity from the air.
We designed our dehumidifiers to pull the air from the house into the unit where it then passes over a series of coolant coils that condense the excess moisture. This removes odor, mold spores, and other impurities from the air. The unit then collects condensed water in a collection tray or pumped out of the unit depending on the model of BaseAire dehumidifier you buy.
The air is then warmed up and pumped out of the dehumidifier back into the room. This process repeats until the relative humidity level of the space lowers below the set level.
