How to Choose a Dehumidifier

Humidity levels in a home which are too high can breed mildew and mold and affect allergies and asthma. A dehumidifier can alleviate these issues by pulling moisture from the air. Technologies like Smart Dry which compares the set and actual humidity and adjusts the fan automatically, to reminders to check your filter or a bucket full alarm make operation and maintenance of a Haier dehumidifier simple.

Before purchasing a dehumidifier there are some things to think about like where will the unit be placed. A wet area such as a basement will need a larger pint capacity such as a 65 pint. The pint capacity on dehumidifiers determines how many pints of water the unit will take out of the air in a 24 HOUR period. To dry an area faster, select the next largest sized unit. Selecting the correct dehumidifier will not resolve problems in the home that are caused by continuous moisture build up like leaks in the basement so be sure to address specific problems.

ENERGY STAR certified dehumidifiers have more efficient refrigeration coils, compressors, and fans than conventional models, which means they remove the same amount of moisture, but use 15 percent less energy. In fact, the annual energy saved by an ENERGY STAR certified dehumidifier could power your ENERGY STAR certified refrigerator for 3 months!
