The Advantages of a Dehumidifier
Excessive moisture in your home can lead to high levels of mold and dust mites. This can cause serious health related problems, including aggravating allergies and causing respiratory problems to become worse. For those with compromised immune systems, asthma, allergies, etc., a DEHUMIDIFIER is an excellent addition to the home.
When the air becomes cold it can no longer retain the moisture and it will pool. This is the process of the dehumidifier. The air circulates through, is cooled, and the moisture is siphoned out through the back.
When choosing a dehumidifier it is important to determine not only how large a unit is, but also how much water the unit will hold and remove. Since you will need to empty the water, you will need to choose a unit that has a removal method that works best for you. If you need to manually empty the tank, be sure it won’t be too heavy to carry. Another option is to choose a dehumidifier that can be connected to a drain with a hose.
No matter what you choose, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations which may include changing filters and cleaning coils to prevent them from freezing.
