Drying clothes indoors can release up to 5 litres (9 pints) of water. If you currently dry your clothes on a radiator or a clothes airer, as the clothes dry the moisture is transferred to the surrounding air. Creating more moisture in your home. Placing an Ebac dehumidifier in a room where you dry laundry eliminates the excess moisture and speeds up drying. You can even use a drying tent to further speed up drying. Using a dehumidifier to dry laundry is significantly less expensive and kinder to your clothes.
Protecting your home from the outside elements and internal dangers
Moisture is all around us. A dehumidifier is like a shield. It collects the excess moisture we create internally from breathing, cooking, washing, and showering and safely removes it. Internally bugs and bacterial love high humidity environments. We want to avoid that. A dehumidifier also protects our home form the harsh external moisture from cold, snow, rain all through the winter. As an island nation – water and moisture are something we have to manage in winter to stop them from doing damage. A dehumidifier protects your home all winter long.
Allergies – Dust Mites hate dehumidifiers
Dust mites, mould and allergens are in every home. They thrive in higher humidity conditions and need moisture to survive. Keeping the humidity in your home below 50% is a proven way to reduce dust mites, allergens and mould. These are all microscopic organisms – you cannot see them with the naked eye. A dehumidifier controls them all through winter. Giving you a healthier home for your family.
Back when we all had single glazed windows, we would regularly see condensation in the mornings. As we all got doubled glazed windows, the condensation was less visible but it is still being produced. If you have condensation on your windows it means there is too much moisture in your home. Even if you cannot see the condensation the excess moisture is still there. Moisture is a completely normal part of living in a home. We create it every day. The excess moisture in your home hides in walls, furniture, clothes – in fact, any absorbent material. When you try a dehumidifier you see an amazing difference in 48 hours.
Mould spores are in the air pretty much all the time. They come from plants, trees and organisms outside. However, it’s only when they come into contact with moisture in the home that they become problematic. Mould spores need moisture to establish and grow. A dehumidifier removes the excess moisture that mould spores need to survive. Dehumidifiers prevent and kill mould growth. Mould is not only unsightly it has a detrimental impact on your health, especially respiratory health.
When excess moisture is untreated over a longer period of time – normally years – it can start to create major problems in your home. Damp problems from excess humidity are easily solved with a dehumidifier. Within a few days, you will see and feel a significant improvement if you have a damp issue. All homes need to control their moisture, if you have a damp problem then urgent action is required to stop and reverse the damp issue.
Antiques, classic cars, caravans, summer houses and art are just some of the valuable assets that can be damaged by excess moisture. Excess moisture can impact the value of these assets very slowly but with devastating effect. A dehumidifier controls the moisture levels, preventing moisture from doing damage to these assets. Take the trial. You’ll be amazed at how much moisture is around us every day.
