What determines comfort sense of self in a room? Apart from such factors as the mood and company of friends, in fact, there are only four main factors:
– air temperature;
– air humidity;
– air velocity;
– temperature environment (walls).
We all know a lot about excessively low moisture content and its negative effects on humans and the environment. And if the humidity is too high? Under conditions of high indoor temperature, high humidity can lead to overheating of the human body.
And it is not the only consequences of increased humidity: environment suffers, things, structural elements of buildings and premises. Your parquet can swell, it’s difficult to close the wooden doors, the spots of mold appear on the walls, things in cabinets and pantries can acquire an unpleasant smell, spoiled paintings, furniture, musical instruments, wooden structures of buildings affected by microorganisms, etc. The room is filled with invisible to the naked eye microspores mold, bacteria, unpleasant odors.
It is especially important to maintain a low humidity for allergy sufferers and asthmatics. When exceeding 50-60% RH, markedly enhanced the growth of mold, increases the population of house dust mites, repeatedly deteriorates allergenic background area.
The traditional way of dealing with high humidity as airing, though is certainly necessary, but often does not lead to a noticeable effect. There is often not less humid outside the room than the inside, and finally the outside can be too cold or, conversely, too hot!
To solve all these problems will help dehumidifiers. These devices based on different physical principles, will help reduce the humidity in the room, to automatically maintain a comfortable environment.
So, where can we use the best dehumidifier for basement or portable dehumidifier for living rooms?
Typical applications of dehumidifiers:
– In the apartments and country houses in the summer and autumn, when the humidity is especially high (in the first place – a bedroom);
– In bathrooms and toilets – the wettest areas of the house at any time of the year;
– In the kitchens (cooking typically is a strong evaporation);
– In the rooms with aquariums and pools;
– In greenhouses;
– In cabinets and pantries for storage of clothes (in containers for storing dirty clothes is advisable to use a small adsorption dryers – this will prevent soggy clothes and odor);
– In cellars and storage rooms for food storage (except for the room with negative temperatures – a dehumidifiers will not work there);
– In premises, where people drying their clothes (some devices even have a special feature greatly speeds up the process);
– In an athletic locker (in these areas typically increased humidity and, as a result, there is a characteristic unpleasant odor);
– In the luggage and passenger compartments (optimal use of small desiccant dryers);
– In attics, basements and garages.
