Whole House Dehumidifier and Room Dehumidifiers

If you live in humid area, moisture can get inside your home and can worsen allergies and can cause mold to develop in certain areas of your home. Certain types of mold can cause more than just allergies; black mold can be very deadly to breathe for long periods of time. Therefore,  it is helpful to use a whole house dehumidifier help to reduce the moisture in the rooms of your home, which improve allergies and reduce the risk of molds growing in your home.

Maintenance Aspect to the Dehumidifiers

Both the whole house dehumidifier and room dehumidifier require very little maintenance. Typically, you just need to regularly clean the various parts and it will give you years of service. The inside coils of the dehumidifier should be cleaned annually, but if you live a super humid area, you may want to clean these twice a year. You can use an attachment to your vacuum cleaner to remove any loose dirt and then wash the coils with a spray brush, which will get rid of the rest of the buildup.

In addition, once or twice per year, you will want to take off the front grill and use soapy warm water to rinse the dirt off of it. There is also a filter in this area that will need washing or replacing every so often, so be sure to check it when you are doing your annual cleaning. The final step in cleaning your whole house dehumidifier is removing and cleaning out the reservoir where the excess moisture is expelled into. Keeping these clean cuts down on the amount of minerals that can be deposited over long periods of time.

Before you begin your room dehumidifier maintenance, make sure you unplug it from the wall to prevent any chance of electric shock. Keep in mind that your whole house dehumidifier is running 24 hours a day, so just check on it every once in a while or mark the maintenance schedule on your calendar so that you remember to keep it cleaned annually.

When running your dehumidifier make sure it is not backed up against a wall or a window because this will block the airflow, and in order to get the most from your unit, you want the best airflow you can get. Many of the whole house dehumidifier units have an indicator to allow you to specify where you want the humidity set in your home; it should be set anywhere between 40 and 50 percent. Too much humidity can make it difficult to sleep because the air is too heavy, which can lead to allergy symptoms. On the other hand, if there is not enough humidity it can lead to dry skin and coughing, so make sure to monitor the humidity level in your home frequently.
