Buying and Using a Dehumidifier - What You Should Look For

​​If you have decided you would like to purchase a dehumidifier to help with your moisture and humidity problems, you may find yourself overwhelmed with questions. The reality is, buying a dehumidifier does not need to be an intimidating process.

There are several factors to consider when buying and using a dehumidifier. Below is a list of some of the most common questions many have when selecting a dehumidifier:

  • What size do I need? One of the first questions you need to ask yourself is, what size is the area/room you want to dehumidify? You will want to find out the square footage of the room. Once you have this number, you can find an appropriate sized dehumidifier to fit the space where it will operate. Ensuring you have the right size dehumidifier will make certain that the unit will be able to efficiently remove enough moisture from the air.
  • What's my indoor temperature? Did you know that the indoor temperature of a space can affect the performance of a dehumidifier? Depending on the area you wish to use your dehumidifier in, you need to ensure the temperature is not below 60 degree Fahrenheit. Since a dehumidifier attracts moisture, the coils can possibly freeze if the weather gets too cold. Keep a close eye on your device when the temperatures start dropping to avoid this.
  • What safety features should I look for? For an electric motor-powered dehumidifier, you need to make sure there is an automatic shut-off feature. This will allow you to turn the unit on or off without having to unplug it, while also preventing overfilling when the storage tank is full.
  • What brand should I purchase? There are several dehumidifier brands on the market, but it is important to research them prior to purchasing to ensure there are no recalls or safety concerns. Eva-Dry, a leading manufacturer of compact dehumidification systems, undergo strict production standards to ensure only safe, high quality products enter the market and into your home. Other brands do not undertake the same quality control and should be researched thoroughly prior to purchasing.
