How To Choose The Size Of A Dehumidifier

Dehumidifiers are designed to regulate the moisture content of the air in a given space. These machines can be portable or permanently installed in your home and can be used to reduce relative humidity in your home, reduce allergies or other respiratory health problems, and make your entire home more comfortable.


Choose the right dehumidifier as needed:

1 Choose a dehumidifier that fits your room size. The optimal size to purchase a dehumidifier depends on the size of the room you want to dehumidify. Measure the square feet of the main room where the dehumidifier will be used. Match it to the size of the dehumidifier.

2 Choose the right capacity for the dehumidifier. In addition to the size of the room, the dehumidifier is also classified according to the humidity level in a given room. It is measured by the amount of water extracted from the environment within 24 hours. The result will be a room with an ideal humidity level.
For example, a 500 square foot room smells musty and feels damp, requiring a 40-45 pint dehumidifier. Please consult the purchase guide to determine the size that suits your needs.

The dehumidifier can hold up to 44 pints (20.8197 liters) of space per 24 hours and covers an area of 2,500 square feet (232.257 square meters).

Consider which features you need on your machine. Modern dehumidifiers have multiple features and settings, and the more expensive the machine is, the more options it will have. Some of the potential features include:

• Adjustable Humidistat: This feature allows you to control the level of moisture in the room. Set the humidistat to your ideal relative humidity level. Once it reaches this level, the machine will automatically shut off.

• Built-in Hygrometer: This instrument reads the humidity level in the room, which helps you accurately set the dehumidifier to maximize water extraction.

• Automatic Shut Off: Many dehumidifiers will automatically shut off when they reach the set humidity level, or when the water reservoir is full.

• Automatic Defrost: If a dehumidifier is overly used, frost can easily build up on the machine’s coils. This can damage the components of the dehumidifier. An automatic defrost option will keep the machine’s fan running to melt the frost.
