Is it good from an environmental point of view to use a dehumidifier?

– Yes, it is. In addition to keeping the house free of moisture and counteracting problems (mould), a dehumidifier is an energy-efficient alternative to drying laundry – which also provides 780W of heat energy for every litre of water vapour that is condensed.

Wood’s LD dehumidifiers are manufactured in Sweden. They contain the modern refrigerant R290, proven to have a low environmental impact, does not damage/contaminate water and contains neither fluorine nor chlorine.

Which dehumidifier is the most energy efficient?

– To answer this, you have to look at the room size relevant for the dehumidifier and how it will be used. Is it to keep the humidity at a certain level or to dry laundry?

It would help if you also looked at how much energy is used to evaporate each litre of water. However, getting a machine with the highest 24-hour capacity is not always the best option. The most powerful dehumidifiers are developed to dry out a space quickly. For example, with water damage or flooding, energy efficiency is not the highest priority in these cases. A suitable dehumidifier for keeping the air humidity at a good level and drying the laundry is developed to be as energy efficient as possible. It has many smart settings, such as a timer function and humidity meter, making it energy smart and efficient when used correctly.

What is a dehumidifier called in Spanish?

– In Spanish, a dehumidifier is called a dehumidificador. A dehumidifier is a good investment in, for example, houses and apartments in Spain, where the climate during autumn and winter can be humid, with significant temperature differences between day and night. Temperature differences between indoors and outdoors create condensation and moisture inside, it can be difficult to dry the laundry, and there can also be problems with moisture and mould.

A dehumidifier from Wood’s LD series is an energy-efficient, smart way to eliminate unwanted moisture indoors. With a drying room dehumidifier, dry, warm air is also blown out and provides a nicer indoor climate. For every litre of water vapour that evaporates, you get back 780W in heat energy.

With the help of a smart timer function and setting for the desired air humidity, the dehumidifier can work even when the house or apartment is empty, reducing the total heating cost and keeping the house healthy. There is also the possibility of easily connecting a hose for draining water.

When should I use my humidifier?

Especially in winter, when the air in our homes and our workspaces can be extra dry. A humidifier simply makes the air more humid. A person who feels dry mucous membranes has asthma, allergies, or a respiratory infection can use a humidifier. Many also experience that their mucous membranes are not as dry when they add moisture to the indoor air during the winter. If the humidity is below 40-50% RH for a long period.

When should I use my humidifier?

When the relative humidity is below 50% RH, it is recommended to use a humidifier. Normally the relative humidity is 15-30% during late autumn and winter, so it is mainly during autumn and winter that a humidifier should be used.
