What is a dehumidifier, and how does it work?
An air dehumidifier, or “dehumidifier” as it is commonly called, removes moisture from the water vapour in the air and turns it into water. The water is either collected in a container or led via a hose to a drain. Some models of dehumidifiers also convert the energy contained in the water vapour into heat, which the dehumidifier blows out as hot air, providing both increased air circulation and a better drying effect. Here you can read more about. Wood’s various dehumidifiers.
With the right dehumidifier, laundry dries at record speed – even in the basement
Getting your laundry to dry quickly, without moisture remaining in the room no longer has to be a dream. With a dehumidifier, your clothes and textiles will dry faster, smell good and last a long time. On top of that, you will get better air quality throughout the house, or the entire basement if that is where your laundry room is. If you also choose an air dehumidifier with maximum heating effect which converts the water vapour’s energy into heat, then by blowing it out as hot air, your laundry will dry as quickly and easily indoors in the middle of winter as outdoors on a sunny summer day.
Dehumidifier or dryer – what is the best choice?
To dry laundry and keep the laundry room/drying room free of moisture, a dehumidifier is truly the best option for drying speed, textiles, energy consumption, and your wallet. A dehumidifier will dry your clothes and textiles gently, and without wear, at least as fast as a dryer. In addition, you can save as much as 75% of energy if you use a dehumidifier to dry your laundry; and while the laundry dries, your indoor environment becomes healthier!
Avoid harmful moisture indoors with the right dehumidifier
Drying laundry indoors gives rise to a lot of moisture which, if not removed or ventilated away, can cause allergic symptoms, aggravate asthma, and cause mould growth. Bacteria and mites thrive best in humid environments and if the ventilation is not adequate, damp rooms become a greenhouse for them. It is both the moisture itself that can cause problems in the form of asthma and allergies, as well as mould spores that are often formed in a humid indoor environment, causing health issues in the form of both respiratory infections and allergic reactions.
A dehumidifier for your laundry room, your basement, or your bathroom
If you dry your laundry in the basement, you have multiple challenges – you need to protect your house from moisture while you want to quickly dry your clothes and textiles, which gives off moisture. It is always better to use a dehumidifier than a fan. A dehumidifier removes moisture from the air, while a fan just blows it around and spreads it throughout the house. Even if you do not have a drying room or laundry room in the basement, moisture is always formed there and that moisture needs to be removed to avoid damage, foul odours, and humid indoor climate. Here you can read more about the right dehumidifier for laundry rooms, basements, and bathrooms.
Basements, crawl spaces, laundry rooms, drying rooms – energy-efficient air purifiers for all needs
In many countries, where there can be a significant temperature difference between day and night, and between different seasons, extra moisture is sometimes formed indoors. The moisture in the air becomes condensation when it ends up on a surface, similar to when you see fog on a bathroom mirror. To avoid moisture damage, mould growth, mites, and other moisture-related problems, you must somehow take care of the moisture in the house or home. The most efficient and best way is to use a dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers are energy-efficient, cost-effective, quiet, and also make the air circulate better.
