A dehumidifier can help homeowners lower the relative humidity in their homes and thereby control the both mold and dust mites. It is a simple fact that when humidity levels rise, an uncomfortable condition is the result.
High humidity in closed spaces, such as homes, can also raise health concerns because it creates the perfect environment for mold to grow and is the kind of habitat in which dust mists love to breed. Purchasing a dehumidifier is the perfect solution.
A dehumidifier removes extra moisture in the air by employing fans that pull the humid air into the unit. The air is then passed over a refrigeration system that consists of both warm and cold coils. This creates condensation and the condensed water droplets drip into a collection pan or bucket.
You should select a dehumidifier for the home according to the total area of air that needs dehumidifying and according to what the overall conditions are in the space, as well as the usual humidity levels in the area. There are many models, yet the most common will have a holding capacity from 30 to 50 pints. Also available is a 65 pint dehumidifier.
It is advisable to do some research by reading reviews of various models and also comparing the energy rating of each unit you are considering before making a decision.
