Using a Dehumidifier Properly Is Key - Here Is Our Advice

Follow these dehumidifier rules for success

A dehumidifier is a great economical, space saving option to safely remove the excess moisture in the air within your home. They eradicate any problems you may be having with dampness, mould or condensation and do so in a way that does not disturb your day-to-day life.

There are some key rules we think you should know when using your dehumidifier, so you can make the most out of having a moisture-free home.

1. Prevention is better than cure
Don’t wait until you have a problem. Every household creates moisture – every day. In Summer it’s not a problem as the moisture can escape. However in winter the moisture is trapped in your home and can create problems. By using the dehumidifier before you see any condensation or damp – you are preventing the issues occurring.

2. Don’t switch it on and off
Constantly switching your dehumidifier on and off does not provide you with the most effective outcome. Ebac’s Smart Control is a new way of controlling your dehumidifier. Smart Control optimizes the performance of the dehumidifier to ensure condensation, damp and mould are eliminated in the most efficient and cost-effective way. By monitoring excess humidity in your home and only switching on when it needs to, Smart Control dehumidifiers operate more efficiently than any other dehumidifier. Ebac’s patented Smart Control ensures your home is always protected and saves you money on running costs. No more fiddling with a manual humidistat. No more taking out too much water. No more taking out too little moisture.

3. Check and empty water container daily
To make sure that your dehumidifier is performing to the highest of its ability, you must remember to check and empty the water container daily, especially in damp weather. This makes sure that the water capacity of the dehumidifier is not at its maximum and can therefore take out the right amount of moisture in the air in your home.

4. Keep all doors slightly ajar
Keeping the doors in your home slightly open makes sure that the moisture in the air can make its way to the dehumidifier without anything blocking its way. This makes sure that your dehumidifier is extracting the water in the air from all around your home rather than from just one room or space.

5. Easterly facing walls are the most susceptible to damp
It is a proven fact that any Easterly-facing walls in your home are more likely to retain any moisture in the air and develop dampness or mould. This is due to the fact that these walls get less sunlight every day than any other in your home. Therefore, it will be highly beneficial to place your dehumidifier in any room with an easterly-facing wall as this will eliminate the moisture in the air before it gets the chance to make its way into wall cavities or produce mould.

6. Dry laundry with an Ebac dehumidifier in the room
Drying clothes indoors can release on average up to 5 litres (9 pints) of water. If you currently dry your clothes on a radiator or a clothes airer, then as the clothes dry, the moisture contained within them is transferred to the surrounding air, creating more moisture in your home. The excess moisture in the air has nowhere to escape. It will condense on cold surfaces such as windows, walls and other surfaces throughout your home. That’s why placing an Ebac dehumidifier in a room where you dry any laundry will benefit you as this will eliminate the excess moisture that the laundry is producing and prevents it from entering the rest of your home.
