Goodbye excess humidity
We all know that humidity doesn’t just cause problems at home. It also affects our health. But we can avoid or at least significantly reduce its negative impact on both, with a simple device that can greatly improve our quality of life, quickly, easily and economically.
What is a dehumidifier?
Dehumidifiers collect excess moisture, maintaining normal humidity levels in closed spaces. They offer a pleasant and healthy atmosphere by removing natural and visible signs of moisture such as mold or condensation, while also helping to prevent or control physical issues that are aggravated by high humidity, such as asthma. Using a dehumidifier during the winter can also reduce heating costs, as it raises the average temperature of the house and creates better and more comfortable living conditions, for everyone.
Dehumidifiers have enjoyed increasing popularity over the last few years because:
- We all have an increased need to protect our health, strengthen our respiratory system and defend ourselves from harmful microorganisms.
- The average temperature on the planet has risen considerably, which has led to raised humidity levels around the world.
- Even if humidity has not caused an uncomfortable environment at home, these elevated humidity levels tend to destroy painted walls, wooden surfaces, floors, furniture, fabrics and more.
What should I look out for when choosing a dehumidifier?
There are many factors that can influence the choice of a dehumidifier. It is important to know exactly what your needs are beforehand, in order to choose a device that perfectly suits your everyday living requirements and conditions.
- The size and frequency of use of your space
There are dehumidifiers that are perfect for small and large rooms. Pay attention to the coverage specifications and the power rate per hour. Rooms that are used frequently and are well ventilated have less power needs than enclosed spaces with no ventilation.
- Ionization functionality
If you have small children or elderly people in your home, the use of a dehumidifier with ionization function is highly recommended. Ionizers ensure better air quality as they release ions which combat course and fine dust, mold bacteria and germs, very effectively.
- Noise levels
If you are planning on installing your dehumidifier in a bedroom, or are particularly sensitive to noise, make sure you choose a device with a relatively low noise level (37-42dB), or an option to activate a “silence” function during the evening.
- Air purifier
If your space is used by people with respiratory problems or allergies, think about choosing a high-quality air purifier that efficiently filters dust, pet hair and pollen as well as various bacteria and viruses.
- Special function for drying clothes
Many people use their dehumidifier to dry their clothes, especially during the winter months. However, if it does not have a specific drying function, the dehumidifier will dry out fabrics resulting in stiff clothes with less elasticity. If you want to enjoy this dual use of your dehumidifier, make sure you choose one with a special operating option for drying clothes, so you can enjoy fresh, fragrant and soft clothes, in no time at all.
Dehumidifiers are not a luxury, they are a daily need. Choose yours and enjoy an… air of cleanliness and comfort in your home.
