Desiccant Dehumidifiers vs. Common Dehumidifiers

8/23/2019 (Permalink)

Unlike common dehumidifiers, desiccant dehumidifiers can not only work efficiently in low temperatures, but they also can bring the humidity levels as low as 35%, sometimes 30%. Not to mention, desiccant dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air independent of the humidity level of the space, whereas the efficiency of common dehumidifiers depend on the humidity level, as well as the temperature of the space.

Most common dehumidifiers are bulky, weighing more than 25 pounds, noisy, and inefficient in low temperatures. Slim and light, weighing a little more than 15 pounds, desiccant rotor technology is a better solution, performing no matter the temperature and with no refrigerant required (Refrigerant is a greenhouse gas that traps heat in our atmosphere. Desiccant dehumidifiers are more environmentally friendly than their common dehumidifier counterparts).

Commercial Grade Dehumidifiers

The primary difference between commercial grade dehumidifiers and consumer grade is that the commercial units do not have a condenser. The desiccant rotor instead exhausts warm moist air out of the building via ductwork, allowing the commercial unit to dehumidify at a colder temperature and a lower humidity than the already efficient consumer units.

If your home suffered water damage, a contractor can use a commercial grade dehumidifier to rapidly and thoroughly remove the moisture from the air under any circumstances, returning your home to normal and healthy humidity levels.

SERVPRO of Westport/Fairfield uses desiccant humidifiers when we remediate commercial damage. If you have any water damage in your home or business, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO ofWestport/Fairfield.
