A dehumidifier is a device used to reduce the humidity level in the air. Smaller-scale dehumidifiers which are commonly used in a domestic environment are commonly compact, discreet and can sometimes be portable. In a commercial setting, you may find larger appliances are installed for heavy-duty;air conditioning units.
How does a dehumidifier function?
A dehumidifier helps users to control and reduce air humidity and moisture by collecting all the water vapour in the air, the condensation from domestic activities such as cooking, doing the laundry or using the shower. A dehumidifier works by extracting the water vapour in the air and storing it in its container for later disposal. In larger scale commercial operations, a dehumidifier may be used to control areas with high temperatures from machinery.
Why would you need a dehumidifier?
There are many health benefits of reducing the humidity levels, they are used to be anti-bacterial and help fight off the growth of mould and bacteria through improving and conditioning the air-quality, which in turn can reduce the chance of respiratory problems which could occur due to continuous exposure. Damp air also causes damage to walls, ceilings and building materials therefore use of a dehumidifier can help fight against this."
