Modern living has created a need for dehumidifiers. Homes today act like sealed boxes, with double-glazing and draft proofing prohibiting sufficient ventilation. This combined with normal everyday activities such as; washing, cooking, bathing and drying laundry, creates a big problem of excess moisture in the home.

In the past this excess moisture would 'escape' through doors and windows or collect on a window as condensation. Today excess moisture creates many problems - damp, mould, mildew, internal condensation - all of which are damaging to our homes if left untreated.
Such conditions have been proved to aggravate Arthritis and Asthma, and provide the perfect breeding ground for dust mites, which provoke an allergic reaction in over 4 million people in the UK alone.
A dehumidifier removes this excess moisture created on a daily basis, allowing us to protect our homes and maintain a healthy living environment.
