Dehumidifier

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015 by Jessie Schoepflin


Following up on our discussion of relative humidity and the use of a dehumidifier, let us introduce our Dehumidifier.

Keep in mind the Relative Humidity (RH) of the air will increase by 2.2% for every degree the air is cooled. The goal is to keep RH at 55% or below to prevent mold growth. Dehumidifiers work by removing moisture from the surrounding air and blowing dry conditioned air back into the space. Our Dehumidifier can remove up to 110 pints of water from the air per day. That water can then drain to a sump pump or a condensation pump.

In addition to drying the air, the filter can remove particles from the air up to 2 microns which will help decrease odors in the air as well.
