What’s the right size dehumidifier for me?
You may have heard that picking the right dehumidifier can depend on the size of your home. That’s not entirely accurate, for example, 2 people in a 5 bedroom house will need to remove less moisture than 2 people in a 2 bedroom house, because the bigger house has more capacity to hold the moisture.
Dehumidifiers have different extraction capacities and as a general guide, the more people in the home, the more excess moisture that needs to be removed. However a unit with a larger capacity will cost less to run than a smaller unit, providing it has a good control system. An “oversized” unit will run less than a smaller unit to extract the same amount of moisture. They usually extract more moisture per unit of electricity and by running less frequently they last longer. Our dehumidifiers are labelled with suitability, based on occupants, in order to help you decide which dehumidifier is right for you. We’d recommend watching our how to choose a dehumidifier video at https://www.ebac.com/dehumidifiers/ for more information on dehumidifier suitability.
What does the extraction rate mean?
The extraction rate is the amount of water that can be extracted in 24 hours.
What is the difference between the extraction rate and the water container size?
The extraction rate on a dehumidifier is the amount of water your dehumidifier will extract per day and the water container size is the amount of water your dehumidifier can hold at any one time.
Will I need to replace any parts on my dehumidifier?
The only thing you should need to replace on your dehumidifier is the filters as and when required.
How long will it take for my condensation to clear?
You should start to notice an improvement in your condensation after just 1 day; however, it could take up to a month to get excess moisture in your home under control.
We are so confident that an Ebac dehumidifier will resolve your condensation problem that we are offering a 30 day condensation cure guarantee. This is a no quibble money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with your Ebac dehumidifier, we will refund your purchase price.
Where does the water come from?
The list is virtually endless; running a shower or bath, boiling a kettle, cooking a meal, doing the dishes and drying laundry all increase the level of moisture in your home.
Even something as simple as breathing, the weather and climate can add to the problem, creating condensation and damp.
How quickly will the water container fill up?
This depends on how much excess moisture is in the air. At first you will probably find your dehumidifier collects as much as 2 containers of water per day, but after it removes the initial moisture from the air it will slow down and you will probably find yourself emptying the water container every 1-2 days.
How much moisture will I generate in a day?
Two people will generate 24 pints of moisture at home in one single day and up to two pints of this moisture cannot be absorbed by your home.
What warranty do I get with a dehumidifier?
We are so proud and sure of the quality of our products that when you buy a dehumidifier from us you will receive a standard warranty which varies by model type; please see our website for confirmation of standard warranty terms.
Will damp in my home affect my health?
Yes! Excess moisture can cause damp and mould, which produces allergens (something that causes allergies). These can be harmful to everyone but especially to babies, children, elderly people and people that suffer from asthma and have skin problems.
What is intelligent defrost?
In order to continue to operate effectively, a dehumidifier needs to defrost, just like your freezer. A dehumidifier in defrost mode is not removing moisture, so defrosting should be minimised. Ebac’s Patented Intelligent Defrost optimises the defrost frequency and duration, keeping the dehumidifier running more frequently and more efficiently. Ebac dehumidifiers are the only dehumidifiers that do this.
Will I need to service my dehumidifier?
The only thing you should need to replace on your dehumidifier is the filters; this should be done every 3 months.
Where should I put my dehumidifier?
For tackling problems like condensation we would recommend placing your dehumidifier in a central place, such as a hallway, keeping all doors slightly a jar. If you have certain problem areas that you would like the dehumidifier to fix then simply place it in that room/area until the problem is under control, then move the dehumidifier to a central place.
Can I clean my filters?
We suggest you vacuum your filters monthly to ensure optimum performance. Alternatively you can purchase replacement filters from the accessories section on our website.
How do I permanently drain my dehumidifier?
All Ebac dehumidifiers offer permanent drainage functionality. In order to take advantage of such functionality you can purchase a permanent drainage kit direct from Ebac – they’re simple to use and offer a simple solution.
How do I dry my clothes with my dehumidifier?
Using a dehumidifier to dry your clothes is one of the great advantages of owning a dehumidifier. A dehumidifier is a cheaper alternative to a tumble dryer with no shrinking and a lot less creasing of your garments. It is also great for any clothes which cannot be tumble dried. All you need to do is to put your clothes on a clothes airer in a room with the door left ajar and make sure that your dehumidifier is switched on. If your dehumidifier has a dedicated laundry mode, use this, if not make sure the fan speed is switched to full. It takes on average around 8 hours to dry laundry with a dehumidifier.
Will my dehumidifier extract the water from my toilet or fish tank?
No, your dehumidifier is only extracting excess moisture so your fish are completely safe.
Can I drink the water from the container?
No. Although the water has been filtered it is not clean enough for drinking. However it can be used for watering plants, in a steam iron etc.
What if the dehumidifier dries the air too much?
Your dehumidifier will only remove excess moisture from the air, if there is no more moisture in the air the dehumidifier can’t collect it this will not dry the air out.
Would I need to run a dehumidifier all the year round?
Running a dehumidifier from early October until the spring is generally sufficient, as more moisture is generated during the winter months.. It’s also better to start using your Dehumidifier before the winter starts; this reduces the risk of moisture soaking into your walls. If you do start your dehumidifier part way through the winter, it is advisable to run it continuously for around 2 weeks to ensure your home is properly dried out.
How much water can I expect to take out?
90% of homes can produce 3- 5 pints per day, but every home is different. For example, it’s not unusual to find next door neighbours in almost identical homes with the same family size producing different amounts of moisture. There’s no hard and fast rule about how much moisture to take out, but you will soon know if your dehumidifier is working effectively as condensation will start to disappear and your home will feel much drier and healthier.
How does a Dehumidifier work?
The way a Dehumidifier works is similar to the way condensation forms on a cold window. A Dehumidifier contains a compact refrigeration system which makes it the coldest place in the house. Air is drawn into the Dehumidifier where any moisture in the air condenses on the hydrophilic coils and is then collected into the easy pour water container.
Why do I need a Dehumidifier?
If you regularly see condensation on your windows, or damp and mould spots in the corners of cold or rarely used rooms, the air in your home probably contains excess moisture. If you don’t do anything about it, this moisture can damage your carpets, curtains, furniture and even your walls. You need a Dehumidifier to remove this excess moisture before it becomes a serious problem.
