Facts about Dehumidifiers

4/4/2022 (Permalink)

Along with fans, dehumidifiers are one of the pieces of equipment that are used in your home for the dry out process after a water damage, but what is a dehumidifier?

A dehumidifier is a bit like a vacuum cleaner: it sucks in air from your room at one end, takes the moisture out of it, and then blows it back out into the room again.

The moisture drips through into a collection tank that you have to empty.

How is the moisture removed?  A dehumidifier is more like an air conditioning unit in this case, which, itself, works a bit like a refrigerator. 

Look inside a dehumidifier and find out what all the parts do.

May homeowners like to keep a small dehumidifier running in their basement.
