The importance of good night sleep is never too far from our thoughts. But, one of the most neglected tenets of ensuring a peaceful night is making sure that the air in our bedrooms is clean.
As discussed in Health and Moisture in Buildings, excessive moisture in our homes has a significant impact on our health; not to mention the number of allergens found in our home. The research shows that there can be negative impacts of clinical significance, which are bad for our health and can lead to both acute and chronic illnesses and, in extreme cases, fatalities.
In 2015 to 2017, The Government reported that 4 per cent of the estimated 23 million households in England had a moisture problem in their home. However, to help keep moisture levels in check and ensure a good nights sleep, we recommend following the increasing number of people who have opted for a dehumidifier.
A dehumidifier is a machine that extracts and removes moisture from the air to help control and maintain the condition of air in the home; or this case, the bedroom.
The fundamentals of how a dehumidifier works are simple to understand. A fan pulls air from our home into the dehumidifier at one end, takes moisture out of the air as it passes through the dehumidifier and blows it back out into the room again.
Most dehumidifiers also have a removable water container where the moisture extracted is collected for safe disposal. It's also common for dehumidifiers to have a place to connect a hose or pipe so the moisture removed can drain straight into a floor drain or sink. Perfect for those who want to run a dehumidifier in an unoccupied environment or over a prolonged time, using a hose frees the user from having to remember to dispose of the extracted moisture.
However, this should not be too much of a concern. Most dehumidifiers have an automatic shut off, which means the dehumidifier will turn off until the water container is emptied.
When it comes to looking for a bedroom dehumidifier, there are several features to look for. From the size of a dehumidifier to whether it's quiet or not, we answer the common questions associated with what makes the best bedroom dehumidifier.
First and foremost, understanding what size dehumidifier to get it an essential. You need to make sure that it's big enough.
A dehumidifier's application is rated by the number of litres they're able to extract every day. To put it as simple as can be, the bigger the bedroom, the bigger the extraction needed.
Ebac has a range of dehumidifiers from 15 litres to 21 litres perfect for a number of applications, houses and sizes.
It's common sense that a bedroom dehumidifier needs to be as quiet as possible to ensure the best night sleep. After all, there's no point in improving a bedrooms air quality if it's going to be too noisy to sleep. But, how quiet a dehumidifier is, is all down to how it is used. But, how quiet a dehumidifier is, is all down to how it is used.
There is a range of dehumidifiers available that offer different settings for this exact reason, but it's more a question of what the user can do to make it quieter.
Something that is forgotten about when it comes to a dehumidifier is the maintenance requirements and ease of use. But, don't panic; there are just two simple tips to remember.
