Small dehumidifiers are just as good as the big ones!

Dehumidifiers are essential to lower the relative humidity of our homes. Too much humidity results in damp walls which cause wallpaper to start lifting, clothes will gather mold and mildew and perhaps you are sneezing or coughing more than normal. To resolve these problems you should remove the excess moisture from your home or perhaps just certain rooms in the house by buying a dehumidifier.

Large dehumidifiers are only required for massive warehouses and industries. If you have a room which is 100 square feet a small dehumidifier is adequate to solve your problem. Mini and portable dehumidifiers are easy to use and small enough to be carried around the house to whatever room they are needed for. If it is a very small area you need to dry out say less than 30 square feet I would recommend buying the mini dehumidifier which contains a dessicant such as silica gel to help dry out your room. They hold less than 20 ounces of water and when they are full they will either alarm or a colour indicator will let you know. Portable dehumidifers are capable of holding much more water but they use more energy so your electricity bill will be higher. However if you have 100 square feet to dry out these will be much more useful.

You can buy a mini dehumidifier from as little as $10 from maplin and a portable dehumidifier from around $80 such as the one by Windchaser which removes 0.8 pints of water per day and is suitable for office use as well as in the home.

Remember before you buy a small dehumidifier to shop around as there are many discounted deals.

Four things you should consider when buying a dehumidifier

There are many different brands of dehumidifier with various different features. There are four key features you should investigate before making your mind up which dehumidifier to buy.

1)How quick does the dehumidifier remove moisture

Dehumidifiers vary on their capacity to remove water. Some can remove tens of gallons daily, for example Ebac industrial dehumidifiers, and other small compact instruments can only remove ounces per day. The Ebac dehumidifiers are much more expensive and are not really suited for home use.

2) How noisy is it

It is best to ask for a demonstration or a trial period with a dehumidifier to see how loud it is. You dont really want one in your bedroom if it squeaks alot and keeps you awake all night. Luckily there are some instruments that operate silently, such as the Air Dryr Portable dehumidifier.

3) How easy is it to use

Does it have automatic features

4) Does it use much energy

Some dehumidifiers use 200 watts and could cost you a fortune.

The best dehumidifiers to buy!!

There are many types of dehumidifier which you must consider before buying the best one for your situation.

Heat pump dehumidifiers - as a the name suggests remove the moisture from the air by using a heat pump and are considered the most useful of the dehumidifiers. The air is sucked into the dehumidifier and when it condenses the moisture is collected in a drip trip or container.

Chemical pump dehumidifiers are more suitable for warmer countries such as Africa, and southern Europe. Their mode of action involves the use of a chemical to dry the moisture from the surrounding air. Due to the vast amount of electricity used by this type of dehumidifier it is not advisable to purchase one for your own home.

Dehumidifying ventilators are not as commonly used and should not be used in very humid environments as they may actually draw air from outdoors into your home.

Remember to look around at all the available dehumidifiers before you buy dehumidifiers as there are often good bargains on these products.

What is a dehumidifier

A dehumidifier is a piece of equipment used to reduce the level of humidity in the air by removing moisture from the air. Dehumidifiers are essential to dry out the air in your home as moist air can cause dampness which leads to mold to develop on household stuffs and is also associated with a variety of health conditions such as asthma.

How does a dehumidifier work? The air passes in through the vents at the front and after the moisture is removed it is passed through the vents at the back of the instrument back into the room. For many people dehumidifers are a life saver when it comes to drying out rooms and removing the dampness and wetness that walls and concrete floors absorb.

I would recommend you consider a few crucial things before you buy dehumidifiers. The larger the tank the less you will have to empty it. Some instruments also had an automatic switch which turns them off when the water tank is full. This is an important feature to ensure no water leakage or spillage from the instrument. Another beneficial feature is a dehumidifier which has the potential to remove 20 litres or more moisture per day. The more water that can be removed the quicker you will remove the dampness and dry out an area.

Remember before you buy dehumidifiers it is best to read around and search for the best deal.
