Dehumidifiers, as the name suggests, are tasked with removing excess moisture from air circulating in an enclosed space, such as a home or office. Excess humidity can have a number of adverse effects on not only the occupants, but also the property and personal belongings of the occupants. For instance, the moisture may start condensing on cooler surfaces, such as windows and walls and cause discoloration. The moisture can also provide a conducive environment for mold growth. Furniture and paper documents will also be affected by the excess humidity. More importantly, however, high humidity can make it difficult for air conditioners to cool the room.
The Effects of High Humidity
When there is high humidity, it would be incredibly difficult for you to feel cool even when the AC is running. This is because humid air is dense, so it will not rise when heated by the body. This means a column of hot air will surround your body, making you feel incredibly uncomfortable. Dehumidifiers are designed to extract moisture from air with the aim of creating an optimal humidity level in the room. They work like refrigerators. They pass warm humid air over refrigerator tubing which are usually very cold. As a result, water droplets start forming around the cold surfaces. These droplets accumulate and flow into a condensate pipe. The air coming out of the other side is usually cooler and less humid. After a few cycles, the humidity level in the room will be much lower than it was before.
