Dehumidifiers for Winter in the UK
wayne 40 Views
The UK is prone to the nasty effects of damp and rot in autumn and winter. The sudden decrease in temperature means moisture begins to affect property and belongings in adverse ways. Carpets begin to sprout mould, the air begins to smell musty and electrical items can even suffer from water damage. Buying a dehumidifier […]
A desiccant dehumidifier has less moving parts than a refrigerant dehumidifier, therefore it does not cost as much to run. It uses desiccant absorption technology which is a lot quieter, safer and environmentally friendly than all other types of dehumidifier. Desiccant dehumidifiers in particular are ideal for the colder months. The X-Dry desiccant dehumidifier is one of the most cost efficient desiccants on the market today. Ideal for households which like to keep their costs down during the colder months, an X Dry Home Dehumidifier is sure to keep your home dry and protect it from the onset of damp and rot. It can be found for just under 200 pounds. Make sure you check out a dehumidifier specialist such as Breathing Space, they tend to have the best prices and are more likely to cut you a deal.
Just because it is freezing cold outside in Autumn and Winter does not have to mean you have to suffer the cold inside too. Many people, if they can afford it, keep the house warm and toasty during the colder months of the year. Constantly heating the house using traditional fireplaces and radiators can cause high humidity which in turn causes condensation. Condensation is bad news for homeowners, too much of it will cause mould to grow, damp, and water damage to electrical items. The Forte Home Dehumidifier by Dimplex is a great piece of kit, its a Refrigerant dehumidifier which uses refrigeration coils to control the humidity level in the house. The Dimplex is a lot better than the X Dry in warmer more humid temperatures, so would be ideal for a house that is adversely affected by condensation.
Whether you choose a refrigerant or desiccant dehumidifier really depends on the condition of the atmosphere that the dehumidifier will be active in. For colder houses, garages and basements I would go with a desiccant dehumidifier to keep damp and rot at bay. For UK households that like to crank up the heating when it starts to get chilly, a refrigerant dehumidifier will work a lot more effectively.
