Efficiency of an LGR Dehumidifier

Shop our Online Catalog: LGR Dehumidifiers

As far as efficiency is concerned, the low-grain refrigerant or LGR dehumidifier is known to be top of its class. So efficient in fact that it’s the only choice when it comes to drying structures after a water damage. Due to the double cooling or enhanced step in the LGR dehumidifier to lower moisture laden air temperatures, it is able to operate and achieve results at a much faster rate compared to standard units.

Though conventional refrigerant dehumidifiers are effective in reducing high humidity to a normal level, they can not get air dry enough to where bound water will want to evaporate. LGR dehumidifiers, on the other hand, thrive in both drier and extremely high humidity conditions and continue to remove moisture whether in the air or in moisture laden materials. In addition, they don’t require extra energy to operate and allow removal of more water vapor and moisture in a broader range of conditions. This means that they can produce dryer air with less moisture than conventional refrigerant dehumidifiers can ever produce, and in some cases can do it while using less electricity.

An LGR dehumidifier is also capable of delivering dehumidified air down to 30-32 grains per pound (GPP).  A standard or commercial refrigerant dehumidifier will only be able to pull the gpp down to 50 – 55.  In a water damage situation this is not enough to be able to completely dry a structure without a lot of tear out of wet materials.   

Their ability to reach lower specific humidity gives them the advantage of ultimately getting the air environment dry enough to pull bound moisture out of the toughest-to-dry materials like wood and concrete. With these systems, structures dry faster and more thoroughly, making them the best choice for disaster restoration professionals.  There are even models that will work effectively in temperatures between 90 -120 degrees.   Since we know that hot air holds more moisture then cold air and that things dry faster when they are heated many restoration professionals need to dry in conditions above 90.  So the benefit of these high heat models is great to the restoration professional.  The high heat dehumidifiers will be some of the most efficient dehumidifiers that you can buy.

On top of the hard to beat efficiency of a LGR dehumidifer, they also come in the form of low weight-to-efficiency benefit. The overall weight of a LGR dehumidifier is as light as 92lbs to 175lbs for larger units. They deliver more dehumidification time per pound than other types of dehumidifiers. Their light weight gives them the portability and convenience that is needed when taking the equipment up and down flights of stairs, moving in and out of office buildings or homes.

Overall, LGR systems are built for maximum efficiency. In times of a water restoration emergency they are the most reliable and dependable dehumidifiers on the market today. Furthermore, their dying technology comes with portability, low energy cost, and some of the driest air possible.
