1. Measure the size of the room or house. When choosing a home dehumidifier, you need to consider the size of the space to be dehumidified. In most buildings, the ideal relative humidity (RHL) to keep the space comfortable and prevent the growth of bacteria and mold is about 30-50%. Most dehumidifiers have built-in humidity regulators that allow you to set the device to the optimal humidity level.
2. Choose a dry home dehumidifier to maintain a cool environment. There are two basic types of dehumidifiers: desiccant and refrigerant. Although the rated capacity of desiccant humidifiers is often lower than that of refrigerant models, they operate more efficiently at lower temperatures. Generally, if the temperature in your space will drop below 65 ° F (18 ° C), it is best to use a desiccant dehumidifier. Desiccant dehumidifiers also have the advantage of being quieter than refrigerant models.
Look for signs of moisture in your room to determine how wet it is. Although using a hygrometer can accurately know the humidity of the room, when selecting a dehumidifier, accurate measurement is not required. We only need to get a general idea of how the room becomes wet, such as condensation on the windows or wet spots on the walls.
The level of humidity is divided into four levels:
1. Moderately humid. If you smell a musty smell in your room, your room is moderately humid.
2. Very wet, if there are wet spots on the walls or floor of your room, your room is very wet.
3. Wet, if there are drops of water on the wall or floor of your room, your room is wet.
4. Extremely wet, if there is water on the floor of your room, your room is extremely wet.
Choose the right home dehumidifier according to the humidity
1.If your space is only a little damp, then you will not need a home dehumidifier with a large capacity. The total capacity you need will depend on the size of your space. For example: (1) If your space is 93 square meters (1,000 square feet), please purchase a 14 cents (6.6 liters) dehumidifier. (2) For a 1,500 square foot (140 square meter) space, use an 18 US pound (8.5 liter) dehumidifier. (3) For 2,500 square feet (230 square meters) of space, use a 26 US pound (12 liter) dehumidifier.
2. For very humid spaces, choose a home dehumidifier of 12–32 US pt (5.7–15.1 L). If your space is very humid, please choose a dehumidifier with a larger capacity. You need to consider the size of the space and the degree of humidity. For example, choose the following dehumidifier: (1) 14 American pints (6.6 liters) for 93 square meters (1,000 square feet) of space. (2) 22 pints (10 L) is used for 1,500 square feet (140 square meters). (3) 26 pints (12 L) is used for 2,500 square feet (230 square meters).
3. For damp spaces, you will need a more powerful unit. Choose the capacity of the dehumidifier according to the size of your space. (1) 17 American pints (8.0 liters) for 93 square meters (1,000 square feet) of space. (2) 27 pints (13 L) is used for 1,500 square feet (140 square meters). (3) 32 pints (15 L) is used for 2,500 square feet (230 m2).
4.For extremely wet spaces, you need a more powerful unit. Choose the capacity of the home dehumidifier according to the size of your space. For example, choose the following dehumidifier: (1) 20 US pints (9.5 L), covering 1,000 square feet (93 square meters). (2) 32 American pints (15 L), covering 2,000 square feet (190 square meters). (3) 38 US pints (18 L), covering 2,500 square feet (230 square meters).
Although larger dehumidifiers are initially more expensive to purchase, dehumidifiers with larger capacities do not have to work hard to keep the space dry, saving a lot of electricity.
