The most efficient use of a dehumidifier is to use it in a room where the doors and windows are closed. You can install it on a wall between two rooms, but this can reduce efficiency and cause the machine to work harder. Use a dehumidifier from Mental Itch to remove moisture and mold from your room.
Place a dehumidifier in the middle of the room. There are many dehumidifiers made for the wall models, but many are portable models. If possible, place a dehumidifier near the middle of the room. This will help the machine work more efficiently. Install a dehumidifier in a temperature control system. Some larger units such as the Santa Fe Dehumidifier are specifically designed to be installed into a temperature control system. This machine is installed using a channel kit and other installation accessories. You should call a handyman to install a dehumidifier on the temperature control system at home.
– Measure the humidity level with the hygrometer. A hygrometer is a measuring device for the amount of moisture in the air. The ideal relative humidity (RH) is around 45-50% RH. At the level above this, the fungus may begin to grow, and a level below 30% RH can cause housing structural damage such as cracked ceilings, broken wood floors and other problems.
– Plug the dehumidifier into a grounded outlet. Plug the machine into a grounded and polarized three-prong outlet. Do not use a connecting cable. If there is no proper plug, ask the electrician to install a grounded outlet. Always pull out the dehumidifier by pulling the cable on the plug. Don’t jerk the cord to pull it out. Do not let the cable bend or pinch.
– Turn on and adjust the settings. You can adjust the relative humidity level (RH) depend on the model of the dehumidifier, measure the hygrometer reading, and so on. Run a dehumidifier until the ideal RH level is reached.
