Features of dehumidifiers
The features often differ between dehumidifiers. However, they tend to have some common features between them. These include a simple on and off switch, as well as a frost sensor, which will turn off the unit if frost starts to form on the coils. This helps to keep the unit from wasting energy. Most of the time, the controls are very simple to use. They have settings for normal, dry, and very dry. Some of the units have digital controls that can allow for even finer control of the humidity levels. Some of the units also have timers on them, and some have wheels and casters, which make them easier to move around the place.
How dehumidifiers work
A dehumidifier is able to bring in air and remove the moisture from it. The unit will then blow the air back out into the room once it is dry. The moisture that it collects will then drip into a collection tank, which will need to be emptied occasionally. Once you turn on the unit, it starts to go to work. Small units will take longer to remove the moisture from a large room, so choose the right size dehumidifier.
A quality dehumidifier can help to keep the air from feeling too sticky, and they can provide some health benefits as well. They help to reduce mildew, mold, mites, and more, which can cause air quality problems, particularly for those who have allergies or who suffer from asthma. They are great for drying out areas that may have wet spots and for helping to remove the muggy and stuffy feelings from a space.
