Garage dehumidifiers have an auto-restart function, a continuous drain off feature, and dries the air to prevent corrosion. They are usually Desiccant dehumidifiers that can work at low temperatures and do not freeze.

High humidity doesn’t allow the sweat to evaporate because there is already too much moisture in the air. It leaves one feeling sticky and uncomfortable.

Dehumidifiers help in reducing the moisture level in the air and allow one to sweat more freely. With less humidity, the sweat drops on your body have a chance to evaporate and leave you feeling cooler.

Some dehumidifiers come with a drain hose option for continuous drainage. A drain port on dehumidifiers can be linked to a regular garden hose. This permits collected water to drain to a floor drain continuously. Because the unit drains by gravity, the hose must be laid on the ground and trimmed to the minimum possible length.

Excess humidity can make you feel hot because the heat builds up in the body having no way to escape through sweat. It obstructs your body’s natural cooling mechanism.

Dehumidifiers will bring down the humidity levels to make living comfortable and when the heat leaves your body through evaporation of sweat, you will feel cooler.

To safeguard the dehumidifier and allow it to extract more water from the air, the ice on the evaporator coil must be allowed to melt. This is referred to as “auto-defrost,” and the presence of a defrost light on the dehumidifier indicates that the defrosting cycle has begun.

High humidity indoors invites mold growth and mildew. When the walls and floors are constantly damp, they develop a layer of mildew and mold. These continue to grow if not removed. If the house remains damp, removing mold will not be enough. Temporarily letting the mold dry will also not be enough. Preventing further mold growth will be essential.

Dehumidifying your home and bringing the humidity levels to below 50% would be ideal to prevent mold growth.

Having flakes of paint falling on the floor also makes the home hard to live in. If you have used wallpaper, you will find that they are peeling off the wall because of the humidity.

Dehumidifiers present excess mixture and help in keeping the air dry and cool. They keep the walls safe from moisture absorption as the lower humidity levels prevent moisture accumulation.
