An Overview On Small Dehumidifiers
Dehumidifiers offer several benefits including creating a healthy atmosphere for you to breathe in and reducing the level of moisture in a room to prevent mold and mildew growth. If you don’t need to reduce the moisture in your entire home, you have the option of purchasing a small dehumidifier for certain areas of your home that excess moisture, such as a bathroom, basement or closet.
Determine which type of small dehumidifier would work best in your home. The most common model remains plugged into an electrical outlet and collects water in a water reservoir that you must empty fairly frequently. Another option is a unit like the Eva-Dry Renewable Mini Dehumidifier, 6-Ounce, which traps moisture in silica gel beads. It’s great for homes with kids and pets, as it is non-toxic, doesn’t need to be plugged in to operate and doesn’t have a water tank that can spill.
Of course, if you have toddlers or babies in the home, you also need a small dehumidifier that runs quietly. That’s exactly what you’ll get with the Pro Breeze Mini Dehumidifier with Auto Shut Off, 16-Ounce, which utilizes thermoelectric cooling technology to get the job done without a noisy compressor.
Next, make sure the machine is easy to use. The hOmeLabs Small Dehumidifier with Auto Shut-Off, 16-Ounce, for example, has a simple power button and an automatic shut-off that kicks in when the water tank is full.
Don’t forget to check that the small dehumidifier is able to cover the space you intend on using it in. If the space is too big, the unit won’t be able to keep up. The SEAVON Electric Mini Dehumidifier, 16-Ounce covers 156 square feet, which is slightly more than other comparable models on the market.
DWYM Fun Fact
Did you know that common allergens, like dust mites, mold and mildew need moisture and humidity to grow? That’s why individuals who live in more humid climates tend to have more allergies than people who live in areas with cooler temperatures and drier air.
To combat this problem, American inventor William Haviland Carrier created the first dehumidifier. You may already know Carrier as the “father of air conditioning,” but he actually came up with the dehumidifier first. Carrier was a brilliant man with a mind for engineering, who held as many as 80 patents for his inventions over the course of his lifetime.
The Small Dehumidifier Buying Guide
- Do not place a small dehumidifier in a room that is larger than the recommended square feet on the product label. It will not be able to keep up.
- Some small dehumidifier models have water tanks that can spill or leak when overfilled.
- It is important to note that small dehumidifiers are not able to can’t keep up in conditions where moisture levels continue to increase.
- Small dehumidifiers work best in areas that have a temperature reading of 59 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit. If temperatures are below 41 degrees Fahrenheit, they will not work at all.
- Always unplug your small dehumidifier before you clean it. You’ll want to wipe down the outside of the unit, wash the water reservoir with a little dish soap and warm water and rinse out the air filter. Wait for the air filter to dry before reinstalling it.
- There isn’t a huge difference in price among small dehumidifiers, although the Eva-Dry Renewable Mini Dehumidifier, 6-Ounce costs less than the hOmeLabs Small Dehumidifier with Auto Shut-Off, 16-Ounce, SEAVON Electric Mini Dehumidifier, 16-Ounce and the Pro Breeze Mini Dehumidifier with Auto Shut Off, 16-Ounce due to its small size and ability to run without batteries or electricity.
