In the previous article, we analyzed the general types of dehumidification products (click HERE to review the comparison). By uncovering the working principles of compressor dehumidifier, semiconductor dehumidifier and desiccant packet, we can find out that for common rooms or parlors (150~500 square feet), semiconductor type could be an effective and economical option. Then, how to select a proper one for your home? Here we offer 4 aspects of choosing small dehumidifiers for home for your reference.
1. Dehumidifying Capability
There are usually 2 forms of dehumidifying capability - rated and nominate. The former one indicates the test outcome under the environment of 30°C and a relative humidity of 80%, and the unit is usually expressed in L/H. The nominate dehumidifying capability, which is more applicable to international standards, refers to the result tested under the environment of 27°C and a relative humidity of 60%, and the unit is usually expressed in kg/H. Before purchase, you are advised to check which type of dehumidifying capability is identified on the user manual or nameplate. Otherwise, you might fail to match the product to your need.
As for small dehumidifiers, the inner fan could be said as the main force to consume electricity. In addition to relevant energy-saving policies published by DOE, you can also make a choice based on your budget and assumed frequency of use. The more frequently you use, the less power-consuming product is recommended. Warm reminder: “Energy-saving” is a key selling point, which significantly affects the price. If you do not use dehumidifier so often, you can just ignore it because the price difference can almost cover the power consumption variance.
The noise produced by the dehumidifier mainly comes from the inner fan in operation and the crust resonance. There are generally three modes of dehumidifier - Strong, Auto and Sleep. Most users prefer the Strong Mode in order to lower the indoor humidity the soonest. While the fan rotates in its fastest speed, the noise comes out in its maximum level. You may now consider: whether this noise affects your daily work and life or not. Therefore, you had better feel the noise in person to judge if it is acceptable. More importantly, products with strong crust resonance tend to have shorter service life.
In extremely humid days, the dehumidifiers can usually achieve a better performance than average. Most small dehumidifiers have their own water tank instead of the connecting drain pipe. If the tank capacity fails to match the fast speed in which the condensate is produced, you need to pour out the water in tank frequently, otherwise the machine will automatically stop working. A proper tank capacity is suggested to be equal to or even more than 1/3 of the daily dehumidifying capability.
