Indications such as condensation on mirrors and windows, musty odors, increase in allergies and mold growth call for the installation of dehumidifiers to remove the household moisture accumulated in excess. Typically, there are two kinds of dehumidifiers, mechanical and passive. Mechanical humidifiers are best suited for smaller rooms, while on the other hand, passive ones are the best fit for larger rooms. Compressor, is common in all dehumidifiers, has a dark side to it as it may create noise that might disturb you if you seek the peace of mind while at home. However, dehumidifiers having thermoelectric compressors may be a better choice over the former as it creates less noise.
If you are planning to buy a dehumidifier, you need to bear in mind certain factors including safety features, size of the machine and dehumidification capacity, among others. Further, a portable humidifier is recommended for those living in rented or temporary accommodations. Even if you are living in your own house but have a shortfall of space, a portable one will suffice the need in that case. Lastly, the placement of the dehumidifier depends on whether it has an air vent atop or not. In case it doesn’t come embedded with an air vent, you will need to maintain its distance from household furniture as well as the wall.
