Dehumidifier Learning Center
Dehumidifiers help protect your home and health against the harmful effects of moisture and mold. A home or building with sustained water damage can be toxic to your health due to unseen mold growth. Dehumidifiers along with an air purifier are a recommended solution to mold and humidity problems that threaten the health of your home and family.
What is a dehumidifier?
A dehumidifier combines a fan with cool coils to collect condensation and remove moisture from the air. Remove moisture from the air can improve the overall indoor air quality and reduce the growth of allergens such as mold and dust mites in your basement or bathroom.
How does a dehumidifer work?
A dehumidifier fan collects air from your polluted environment and pulls it into the dehumidifier. As the air passes through the dehumidifier, it comes into contact with the dehumidifier's cooled coils. These dehumidifier coils use condensation to pull moisture from the heavy air. The collected moisture remains on the coils and drips into the dehumidifier's reservoir. Then the dehumidifier reheats the air and exhausts it back into the room.
Who needs a dehumidifer?
An average home should ideally be between 30 and 50 percent relative humidity. If you're struggling to reach that range, a dehumidifier may be the perfect solution for you.
