All Dehumidifiers10 Rules for Using a Dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers solve the condensation problem by removing excess moisture from the air. This deters it from sabotaging the structural integrity of your home. Follow these 10 rules to ensure you’re getting the most out of your dehumidifier.
It’s easy to assume your home doesn’t suffer from condensation. Especially if there’s none on your windows and no mould on your walls. But you create moisture every day, just through living, breathing, cooking and showering. And in winter, this moisture has nowhere to go but the cold surfaces.
Prevention is better than cure. Save yourself the money and stress, and get a dehumidifier.
We all wish for a moisture-free home, but dehumidifiers can be expensive to run. Ebac’s Smart Control system saves you time and money. It assesses the moisture in the air, turning your dehumidifier off when the moisture levels are low and switching it back on when they rise.
To get your manually-controlled dehumidifier up and running, set its humidity level. You want it set at 30 – 50%. If there’s too much moisture, you’ll get dampness and mould. If there’s too little moisture, your home will be too dry and attract bacteria.
When your dehumidifier sucks in the moisture-filled air, it turns it into condensation and stores it in a container. This needs to be emptied regularly. Emptying it daily ensures your dehumidifier is always working at its best.
On average, 5 litres of water evaporate from your laundry while it dries. Air-drying your laundry without your Ebac dehumidifier can lead to extreme condensation build-up.
So, switch it on, and save yourself the hassle of mould and dampness later!
While your dehumidifier’s on, keep your doors ajar. Dehumidifiers can’t attract the moist air with the doors closed! Opening your doors slightly allows sufficient airflow so your dehumidifier can do its job.
Easterly-facing walls get less sunlight, so they suffer most from condensation. Move your dehumidifier between rooms with easterly-facing walls to fully protect your house from damp and mould.
Dehumidifiers need to be cleaned. This is especially the case for the filter, which cleans the air. When your dehumidifier is dirty, its efficiency is reduced.
It’s easy to assume the best place to put your dehumidifier is against the wall. But it’s not! Dehumidifiers suck in and expel air using vents. Blocking any of these vents can reduce your dehumidifier’s effectiveness.
Remember, water and electricity don’t mix. Dehumidifiers work with both, so you have to take special care when around them! Check your dehumidifier’s safety precautions, and follow them!
