Air Dryers

There are many uses for air dryers or dehumidifiers in your home. You can buy several types of dehumidifiers such as the basement, whole home and portable units. Here are the various types and how they can help you.


The portable air dryer or dehumidifier is great if you need to move the unit from room to room to change the humidity in multiple locations in your home. Go with a unit that has a good set of casters as some units can weigh as much as 100 pounds or more which makes them difficult to move around without the casters. Get a unit that has a humidistat so you’ll know the level of humidity in the room or you can do this by hand with a hygrometer to measure the humidity. The portable unit can be a good option for you if you want to change the humidity in each room individually but it can be problematic because you have to move the unit all the time and it might not be the best option for you when it comes to a dehumidifier.

Whole Home Unit

This will cost you more but they will dehumidify your whole home. You will need to maintain the unit so it operates at peak performance levels, which should only entail changing a filter once a month. If you have a large structure that you need to dehumidify then this can be a good option for you. If you have a lot of furniture or expensive items in your home or old paintings then this unit can keep mold and mildew from accumulating and ruining these objects in your home over time.

Basement Dehumidifier

These units work in the area of your home wherе mildew and mold can start easily and that’s the basement. Most of these are just portable units but some are designed just for your basement area. You might want one of these units if your basement suffers from mold issues. Having a look at the structure of your home can also help you determine how to prevent some of the mold from occurring and you can use the dehumidifier as a preventative measure.

How to Use Them

To use any air dryer make sure you close all your doors and windows in the home. You need to make sure the airspace in the home is tight. If you do this your dehumidifier will work in the way it was designed. You don’t want to let any more air into the home as this will just increase the humidity in your home again. Make sure that the unit has nothing that will obstruct it as it works to dehumidify the room. You should have about 12 inches of space around your unit for the best results.

Great for Your Home

An air dryer can help keep humidity out of your home and reduce mold and mildew issues. If you have health issues these units can also help you to feel better. These units can remove issues with water in your home and make it more comfortable to live in.
