Features to Look For When Choosing a Dehumidifier

A humid indoor environment causes damage to your home, creates mold and mildew, and can wreak havoc on indoor allergies. When decreasing humidity levels inside a Northern Virginia home, homeowners often employ fixed or portal dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture from the indoor air. Dehumidifiers use built-in fans to pass humid air through a cooling device, which makes the water vapor condense and collect in a pan, which must be emptied periodically.

  • Safe and vigilant containment and removal following the highest safety procedures
  • Damage prevention for your home and furnishings and elimination of potential health issues by adequately controlling indoor air moisture and eliminating mold growth
  • Comprehensive environmental site analysis

When choosing a dehumidifier, consider the following features to allow for optimal functionality:

  • ENERGY STAR-certified models can save on energy costs in the long run.
  • Automatic shutoff options prevent overfilling when the storage tank is full.
  • Adjustable humidistats can control the relative humidity level.
  • Low-temperature dehumidifiers are best if your dehumidifier will operate in temperatures as 44 degrees.
  • Automatic reset features are useful after you've emptied the collection tank or if you lose power.
  • Reusable, washable air filters can be easily maintained.
  • Defrost features turn the dehumidifier off when it freezes up and turns it back on when the ice has melted.
  • Variable fan speeds allow for different levels of dehumidification.
  • Portable units with wheels are easy to maneuver and can be easily placed in any room.

Reducing sources of moisture in your Northern Virginia home can lead to lower humidity levels, and using a dehumidifier is often the easiest and most direct method for doing so.
