Molds grow in almost every home and flourishes due to high humidity level, excessive amount of moisture and abundant rainfall. When the molds grow in any surface it may result in:
Damaged music equipment
Musty smell in books & collectibles

How dehumidifier works?
Step-1- The Dehumidifier absorb the excess moisture presented in the air and cools it. Step-2- Then the moisture laden air is converted into water droplets. Step-3- After that the condensed water droplets are collected in the water tanks or drained away via provided drainage facility. Step-4- All this helps in gaining desired humidity level as well as clean the air.
How to choose a dehumidifier?
Get the correct size
In order to get the correctly sized Dehumidifier, one should match the extraction capacity & coverage of Dehumidifier against their application requirements.
Identify the ideal humidity level
The in-built hygrostat help the users in maintaining desired level of humidity and also saves cost on power. It is done by adjusting to different humidity levels and with the automatic on/off feature of Dehumidifier.
Know the drainage options
The collected water stored in the water tank can be emptied manually or can be easily drained by fitting a pipe or hose for consistent drainage to a desired area.
Manage the operating cost
While choosing a Dehumidifier consider both the de-humidifying capacity and energy consumption level. It should be kept in mind that a larger well spread unit dehumidifies more area in a shorter time duration and do not require high cost for maintenance.
Consider the applicability
Dehumidifier carrying handles or attached with castors are easy to move from one place to the other where the requirement of de-humidifying arises.
