How a Dehumidifer Works
Is your home struggling with damp? Is it climbing up your walls and driving you up the wall? Damp can definitely make a home quite unpleasant. Whether it’s a home or office and damp is affecting the walls or ceilings or if damp is being caused by cooking or drying washing indoors, it can result in ugly, smelly mould. The mould can grow on your walls as well as on your clothes and it can cause some rather nasty respiratory illnesses. Damp can take a while to get rid of but you need to do something in the meantime. A solution to your problem is a dehumidifier from Anstan Technologies. A dehumidifier is an electric piece of machinery that removes moisture from the air.
What is humidity?
Most of the time, we don’t even think about the atmosphere in our homes and why would we? We can’t see it and its usually safe to assume that its dry. The clouds above you are a clear indication that waters exists in the air in the form of water vapour. Water vapour is also inside your home. You may think that the air is dry because it feels dry but there is a huge amount of moisture around you. If you’re drying laundry inside your home or cook in a kitchen that isn’t well ventilated, the humidity levels can get pretty high. If you find condensation on your windows or water dripping down your walls, it’s a sure sign of too much humidity in your home. If you can relate to any one of these problems, it’s probably time to invest in a dehumidifier from Anstan Technologies.
Why does indoor humidity matter?
The human body is around 60% water on its own but that doesn’t mean we need to be surrounded by a moist environment. Excess moisture in the air can cause mould to grow on your clothing, it’s bad for electronics and computers and optical equipment. Excess moisture in the air can also be bad for your health. High levels if indoor humidity can encourage all sorts of bacteria, fungi, mites and viruses to flourish and breed. Having a dehumidifier can prevent this from happening.
What does a dehumidifier do?
A dehumidifier is kind of like a vacuum cleaner as it sucks air into it through one end, takes the moisture out of it and pumps it back into the room again. The moisture will turn into water and it will drip into a collection tank which you will have to empty every now and then.
