Desiccant or compressor dehumidifier--do you know which dehumidifier is better for your home? Before purchasing a dehumidifier, please read our guide to understand the pros and cons of each type.

Function of dehumidifier


The dehumidifier is an ideal antidote for humid, dusty or moldy indoor environments. The main function of the dehumidifier is to reduce the humidity in the indoor air. In addition, it has other benefits, such as removing dust mites from the atmosphere, reducing the amount of condensed water and improving indoor air quality overall.


If you are suffering from an allergic reaction, maybe you should consider buying a high quality dehumidifier. This is especially true if you live in a relatively humid climate such as a coastal area.


Desiccant or compressor dehumidifiers help eliminate some common triggering factors for allergic reactions (mould, mold and dust mites). This is beneficial for people with seasonal allergies. In small spaces with poor ventilation, such as kitchens or bathrooms, dehumidifiers are also of great benefit. Ideally, it should be considered to construct these devices under optimal ventilation conditions to expel warm humid air and introduce cool dry air through convection.


However, the situation is not always so optimistic. Because the efficiency of convection circulation is not effective in completely eliminating moisture or humid air in the space. It may be more cautious to use some artificial dehumidification mechanisms to support the natural convection process. This mechanism helps eliminate most of the water in the space and prevents water from accumulating.

The role of dehumidifier

The commercial dehumidifier can help quickly dry the clothes indoors, especially in the cold winter. The functions of the desiccant or compressor dehumidifier are as follows:


The industrial dehumidifier helps reduce the humidity of indoor spaces, making these spaces unfavorable to allergens such as mold, mold and dust mites.


Using a desiccant or compressor dehumidifier will help minimize the malodor associated with humid environments and allergens. They inhibit the growth of mold. They help improve indoor air quality and reduce skin or respiratory irritation associated with allergens and humid environments. They minimize the dust levels in indoor spaces. The second benefit of low indoor humidity. For example, clothes will dry out faster; mold is not likely to form on food; and corrosion of metal surfaces is less.


Determine whether a desiccant or compressor dehumidifier is required


If you are highly sensitive to some common allergy triggers, you may need a desiccant or compressor dehumidifier. If the humidity in the room is high, you may also need to purchase them to clear the backlog of products and ensure the integrity of the surface of the site.


The following conditions may cause high humidity in the indoor space:

Water stains on indoor surfaces, including ceilings, walls or on the house; musty smell in the room; small black spots on some parts of the wall or bathtub; moisture on the metal surface of the room, especially condensation on window glass; poor ventilation.

In view of the above situation, simply keeping the room clean is not enough. Because if there is insufficient ventilation, moisture will accumulate indoors, which may cause health hazards for you and your family.

How to choose a desiccant or compressor dehumidifier

You can use various types of dehumidifiers to extract moisture from the indoor air. Generally, there are two types of competitive dehumidifier technology: compressor dehumidifiers and desiccant dehumidifiers.

Compressor dehumidifier

Compressor dehumidifier is a traditional type of dehumidifier, many users also prefer this style. It uses the condensation mechanism to extract water from the atmosphere. The compressor dehumidifier draws in warm, humid air and passes it through the refrigeration coil. Condensation occurs when warm humid air comes in contact with cold surfaces. Therefore, in this case, the water is separated from the air in this way. The condensate is then directed into the water tank and then processed. The dry air is reheated to room temperature on the hot coil, and then released back into the room. Compressor dehumidifiers usually work best in environments with high ambient temperatures. The advantages of compressor dehumidifiers are that they work well in warm climates; help maintain room temperature; and lower energy consumption. The disadvantage of the compressor dehumidifier is that it is not suitable for cold climates; the volume is relatively bulky; the noise is large.

Desiccant dehumidifier


Desiccant dehumidifiers work like sponges or silica gel, but absorb moisture from humid air through a desiccant wheel. The grinding wheel is regenerated by the built-in internal heater, which can be continued. Desiccant dehumidifiers are generally quieter and more compact in design, and are therefore favored by many customers.


The advantages of desiccant dehumidifiers are: low noise; they work well in cold and warm climates; they can keep your house warm in winter. At the same time they are also the best energy consumption in cold weather; have low maintenance costs; are more durable and portable. The disadvantage of desiccant dehumidifiers is that they are more expensive.


In the case of higher temperatures, it is best to run the compressor dehumidifier, which not only runs at a lower cost, but also helps to maintain room temperature. Both types of dehumidifiers are widely used and have their advantages and disadvantages. Although desiccant dehumidifiers have advantages in many applications, compressor dehumidifiers are still the first choice in many environments. Finally, you should choose a dehumidifier that matches your preferences based on the above considerations and the price budget of the dehumidifier.
