How Do Dehumidifiers Work?
A dehumidifier has a fan that draws warm, moist air into the system, where it passes through condensing refrigerant coils. The moist air is converted to water droplets and then collected in a drip pan or removable bucket. The warm motor slightly reheats the now moisture-free air before it is released back into your spaces, and the cycle is repeated.
What are the Benefits of Dehumidifiers?
The perks of having a dehumidifier in your commercial office or home include:
Too much humidity can destroy beautiful art paintings, wood furniture, clothing, books, electronics, and certain types of foods. A dehumidifier will help keep the moisture at acceptable levels, which don’t pose any risk to your valuables.
By reducing the humidity levels in your office or home, you’ll gain better control over the different types of allergens and allergy triggers. Mold, mildew, bacteria, dust mites, and other harmful pests often thrive when the humidity level is more than 50%.
People who have asthma and other respiratory system issues, for example, will enjoy improved air quality. Less irritation on their system means they’ll breathe a lot easier.
High humidity levels pose a significant risk to the wood part of a building, including the support beams. Prolonged exposure can lead to cracking, warping, or splitting.
The damage may extend to your walls and metal fittings, which are susceptible to mold and rust, respectively. Fortunately, you can prevent that using a dehumidifier.
The appliances can help eliminate the musty smells associated with mold and mildew growth as a result of excessive moisture and dampness. Your spaces will feel fresh and more comfortable.
Dehumidifiers offer energy-saving benefits. They reduce the workload on your air conditioning unit. Otherwise, the AC system will have to perform the cooling and moisture removal functions when excess levels are detected in your living spaces. This can make your unit work really harder, which translates to more energy use.
How Long Do Dehumidifiers Last?
Dehumidifiers can last anywhere between 3 to 8 years. The lifespan is, to a more significant extent, based on the maintenance level, size, and the frequency and duration of use.
Generally, this type of appliance requires low-level maintenance, which entails replacing filters and performing cleanups regularly. The size factor matters because when a dehumidifier is small for your space, it will be overworked to control the moisture level. This can shorten its life. The same goes for dehumidifiers that run continuously, year-round.
Dehumidifiers can make a great addition to your home depending on your needs. However, some people need humidifiers. If you’re confused about the difference between the two, check out our humidifier vs dehumidifier post where we break down everything you need to know!
