How to Use a Dehumidifier
Select the correct capacity for your space.
The efficiency of a dehumidifier is based on the space you have as well as how moist that space is. The capacity is listed in measurements of the number of pints the dehumidifier collects per 24-hour period. Conditions can range from moderately damp to extremely damp. Dehumidifiers can accommodate up to 44 pints (20.8197 liters) per 24 hours in a space as large as 2,500 square feet (232.257 square meters).
Find a safe and appropriate location for your dehumidifier.
You can place the unit against a wall if your dehumidifier has a top-mounted air discharge. However, if this is not the case, you will need to keep the dehumidifier away from the walls and other obstructions to allow the air to circulate around the machine. It is also important to keep doors and windows closed while you are running the dehumidifier to help it run more efficiently. Keep. your dehumidifier away from sources of debris or other objects that can clog the machine.
Be aware of the temperature.
The air temperature in the room where you are running your dehumidifier may increase as the moisture is removed. This is perfectly normal and should not pose any problems. The time for concern may be, though, if the area in which you run your unit is consistently below 65 degrees Fahrenheit (18.3 Celsius). Frost may begin to appear on the coils of the dehumidifier, which could cause the unit to work improperly. In these cases, you should purchase a dehumidifier that has an anti frost sensor or one that is created specifically for cool spaces.
Allow the humidifier to run through several cycles.
The first time you use your dehumidifier will be the most productive. You will be removing the majority of the excess water in the air over the first few hours, days or sometimes even weeks. After the first round, though, you will be simply maintaining an appropriate level of humidity rather than trying to bring it down drastically. You will be able to set the amount of humidity that you desire on your dehumidifier when you plug it in.
Maintain your dehumidifier.
You will need to empty you dehumidifier on a regular basis in order to keep it running properly and efficiently. How often you do this will depend on the size of your space and the amount of humidity you are dealing with. Some areas may require the bucket of water to be emptied once a day, while others may only need to be drained once per week. Keep an eye on your dehumidifier to determine what it will take to keep it running.
