Side Effects Of Indoor Humidity
Ideal Humidity Levels
Dehumidification Process (working)
Choosing depends on the square feet you plan to use it in and also the humidity to which you want the air to be.
- The hot, humid air goes in through a grill on one side of the machine. This is due to an electric fan inside pulling the air inward.
- The humid air passes through the cold pipes through which the coolant circulates. It is like passing the air through a little mini-fridge. This action brings down the air temperature. Some of the moisture air condenses into liquid water and drips down the pipes.
- The dryer air then goes through the hot condenser and warms up.
- Dry air goes back out into the room through another vent.
- The moisture that condenses back into water collects in a bucket or drains into a hose.
- A plastic float rises in the machine as the collecting tray fills up. Once it fills up and the float reaches a certain level, it causes the switch to cut off the power.
- The dehumidifier fan stops. A light comes on to show the bucket is full, and you can empty it. Units with a drain hose continue to operate.
Working of Adsorption Dehumidifiers
- Your appliance draws the moist air in through a vent opening. A whole house appliance draws in moist air into a duct in the ceiling or wall.
- The air moves past a giant rotating wheel. The wheel has a material that absorbs water, which removes the moisture.
- A fan operated by an electrical motor draws the air.
- Dry air blows back out into the room.
- The air duct underneath stays warm due to an element run by an electric motor
- The humidity-absorbing wheel rotates through the heated air and has hot air blown past it to dry it out.
- A fan powered by an electric motor sucks air past it.
- Hot, wet air blows outside through an exhaust duct.
