What is a dehumidifier?
A dehumidifier is characteristically a domestic appliance, which lowers the levels of moisture in the air, generally for some health reasons. For those of you who don’t quite know this fact, moist air can result in production of mildew and mold within homes that may lead to many health risks.
Extremely humid air or climatic conditions make people uncomfortable – sweat doesn’t evaporate, people with lung and respiratory conditions tend to have breathing trouble, clothes don’t dry and a musty smell lingers, making one’s home less fit to live in.
Another downside to higher humidity levels is that most vermin thrive in humid conditions, moths, fleas, woodlice, roaches, and dust mites – they all like the heavy air.
Ideally, the relative humidity in houses should be in the range of 30 – 50% so if you are near the sea, a large water body, or experience a lot of wet weather, a dehumidifier is a must have to keep you healthy and your house in ship shape.
Dehumidifiers suck out the excess humidity – but they differ in the manner in which they eject this excess humidity. Most portable dehumidifiers remove from the ambient moisture and collect them as a ‘condensate’, that needs regular emptying.
Other dehumidifier designs however, eject the excess humidity as vapor and not liquid. While requiring lower human involvement, their energy efficiency however, is not necessarily comparable with the former.
At an industrial level, dehumidifiers play a very important role in the food processing and semiconductor industries, while most others have also adopted humidity control as a measure for a better work environment if not greater quality assurance.
What makes the Frigidaire 70 pint dehumidifier so special?
The Frigidaire dehumidifier is a portable humidifier, which is very efficient to use even at low-speeds. It has the ability to reduce the total humidity of any particular room, which is in excess of 1500-square feet to 20 percent in just under 3 hours. It helps in improving home environment by promising and preserving the freshness of home temperature.
The main attraction of this dehumidifier is that it comes equipped with a full-function ready to select controls, which has auto shut off function and 24-hour timer.
It is also one of the best options for cost and energy savings since it can operate well at very low fan speeds too. In addition to all this, it has been chosen as the lowest-priced portable humidifier in comparison to other retailers marketing identical products of similar sizes.
The only downside perhaps to the new Frigidaire dehumidifier is that the condensate bucket is somewhat difficult to remove – an arguable point though. While some consumers complain that the bucket is packed so high that it is difficult to empty it without spilling and is also awkward to carry around, the way it is shaped, others find the folding handle and the caster wheels easy to use when they need to empty the condensate bucket.
