Unfortunately, when the weather is humid, moisture does not always stay outside. It can sneak into your home and make already damp spaces such as bathrooms and laundry rooms more humid. For most people, a home with a humidity of 30-50% is ideal (higher in summer and lower in winter). When the humidity exceeds 50%, the space may become a breeding ground for mold, mildew, dust mites, and other small animals.
The dehumidifier removes excess moisture from your environment and prevents mold, mildew and other problems that may harm your health or your home. Most dehumidifiers use internal compressors and fans to draw in moist air through the inlet. The air passes through the cooling coil, sucking out the excess water and condensing it into the reservoir. Then push the dry air back into the room.
The following three points are helpful to our understanding of dehumidifiers.
1.What kind of dehumidifier do I need？
Hose connection. If you will use a large-capacity dehumidifier for particularly humid work, finding a dehumidifier with a hose connection can save you from having to empty the machine manually. If you can't find one with a hose, look for a pump with a pump that can deliver water to the sink or window. Otherwise, you will have to physically (and often) dump the captured water.
2.What functions are important when buying a dehumidifier?
1. Remote control. The remote control is very convenient, so you don't need to be close to the device frequently to set up.
2. The automatic humidistat can sense the moisture in the air and automatically shut down when it reaches the required level.
If the dehumidifier is placed in a cool place, automatic defrosting can be very helpful, because it can ensure that the device operates normally at colder temperatures.
4.How to make the dehumidifier run effectively？
Ensure that the airflow at the outlet and inlet is not restricted.
Clean the air filter regularly. If it is very dirty, the dehumidifier will not work properly. Make sure you take care of it at least once a month.
