Shop now for room dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture from your home! At P.C. Richard & Son, we have countless air dehumidifier models available from top brands like Friedrich and Frigidaire. Not sure if your home can use a dehumidifier? Even if you have home air conditioning, a dehumidifier can greatly improve your home's air quality. Damp rooms like basements, laundry rooms, and bathrooms can cause musty odors and promote the spread of allergens in your home. Mold, mildew, dustmites, and seasonal allergens all thrive in humid environments.
When you own a dehumidifier for basement use or general use, the unit works to maintain an ideal relative humidity level (RH level) inside the room it's placed in.
Home dehumidifiers work by forcing air over coolant-filled coils to remove excess moisture. From there, depending on the type of dehumidifier you have, moisture will drip from the coils into a basin, or it'll be pumped out of the dehumidifier from a drainage port if you've attached a hose. The drier air is then recirculated into the room. A portable dehumidifier is one of the best ways to reduce the humidity in your home.
Selection of Small & Large Dehumidifiers are Available
A small dehumidifier doesn't vary much from a large dehumidifier other than its moisture removal rate, and by extension, their intended use. Dehumidifiers are rated by pint removal capacity per 24 hour period. The greater the ambient moisture and the greater the square footage of the room it's being placed in; the higher the rating you want for your dehumidifier.
A 70 pint dehumidifier will remove more moisture than a 50 pint dehumidifier, but the higher rated unit will typically require more energy to run. For an energy efficient dehumidifier, be sure to seek out models which are Energy Star rated like the ones offered at P.C. Richard & Son!
