It’s getting cooler and as a result, you may get some condensation on your conservatories glass windows. The easiest way to fix this problem is with a dehumidifier, but what is the best dehumidifier for a conservatory?
What is a dehumidifier?
Dehumidifiers are appliances often electrical that draw moisture from the air. The are primarily used in homes with high humidity and particularly popular in colder months when the warm air in a property mixes with the cooler air outside.
How do dehumidifiers work?
Dehumidifiers work by drawing the humid air in. This air is pushed through a number of cold coils condensing it inside the dehumidifier which collects the water in a tank or is drained through a hose. Cooler, drier air is then pumped back into the room.
Benefits of a dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers have lots of benefits. These include reducing the levels of damp, mould and mildew within the home, which helps to keep your home a drier and more comfortable place to live. Some dehumidifiers also have the ability to remove impurities from the air that can often trigger allergies.
Different Types of dehumidifiers
There are two main types of dehumidifiers, refrigerant or desiccant. Refrigerant models remove moisture through cooling and condensing the air. Desiccant dehumidifiers, remove water from the air using chemicals like silica gel which absorbs moisture from the air until they reach their capacity.
Humidity in the home can lead to some big problems, especially in small confined spaces such as a wardrobe or closet. The excess humidity is not only damaging to the clothes but can be damaging to the wardrobe itself.
