What is a dehumidifier?
Maintaining the right amount of moisture in a home is all about balance, too much or too little can lead to unpleasant conditions, health problems and structural issues. A warm, comfortable environment is often what we think of when we refer to home, so the last thing we want is a condensation, dampness and mould problem because there is too much excess moisture in the air.
Dehumidifiers are designed to reduce the level of excess moisture in a home so the air feels more comfortable and you notice fewer signs of unhealthy air quality - helping combat condensation, reduce dampness and prevent mould growth and odours. Through operation, dehumidifiers extract moisture from the air; this collected water is then trapped into a water container to be disposed of.
If the humidity level in your home is high, you should consider a dehumidifier. Moist warm air that enters the dehumidifier passes over cooled coils, causing the moisture in the air to condense. Thus, the dehumidifier removes humidity, releasing dryer air back into your home.
See our top 5 reasons why you need a dehumidifier:
1. Condensation Cure Guarantee
Because we live in homes that are built to stop air leaving, we create high levels of moisture that condense on cold surfaces and create condensation. Through operation, a dehumidifier extracts excess moisture from the air.
2. Prevents Dampness and Mould
The most common cause of dampness and mould is having too much moisture in the air. A dehumidifier reduces this level of moisture by becoming the coldest point, causing it to condense within the machine.
3. Indoor Laundry Drying
In cold, wet weather we are often left with no other choice than to dry laundry indoors but with no tumble dryer, using a dehumidifier is a great alternative. A dehumidifier not only extracts the moisture from your laundry but saves time and has lower running costs compared to other methods.
4. Healthier Air Quality
Too much moisture in a home creates the perfect environment for dust, mould and pollen growth. A dehumidifier eliminates these toxins in the air - and keeps bacteria from growing by lowering humidity levels in the home.
5. Full Home Protection
A dehumidifier does not only help people living in your home, but your home itself. It protects everything from windows and walls to the quality of your indoor air - making your home a better place.
