How Does A Dehumidifier Work?




The Damp Defender dehumidifier uses mild heat to warm, dry, and circulate air in enclosed spaces, making them inhospitable for moisture, mold, mildew, and allergens.

Once installed, the Damp Defender dehumidifier works to heat the air within the enclosed area, causing that air to expand. The expanded air causes pressure inside the enclosure, which is slightly higher than the air outside of the enclosed space. This difference in pressure pushes the musty air out of the enclosed space and draws fresh air in.

To get the most out of the unit, the area around the Damp Defender needs to be clear, so that the air is free to move around the unit.

The Damp Defender dehumidifier has a three step process to remove mold and mildew

Why Might You Need a Dehumidifier?

There are several reasons why you might need a dehumidifier in your home or office. Some of the most common reasons include:

High Humidity – If you live in an area with high humidity levels, a dehumidifier can help to reduce moisture in the air and prevent mold and mildew growth.

Musty Odors – If you notice musty odors in your home or office, a dehumidifier can help to remove excess moisture from the air and reduce the likelihood of mold and mildew growth.

Allergies and Respiratory Problems – If you or someone in your household suffers from allergies or respiratory problems, a dehumidifier can help to improve air quality by removing allergens and other particles from the air.

Dampness and Condensation – If you notice dampness or condensation on your walls, windows, or ceilings, a dehumidifier can be used to help remove moisture

Preservation of Belongings – If you have valuable belongings such as antiques, books, picture albums, and other important documents that are susceptible to damage from high humidity levels, a dehumidifier can help to protect them by reducing moisture in the air.

Where Can I Use a Dehumidifier?

The Damp Defender dehumidifier can work in many spaces, not just in your home. Some of its top uses include:

Garage Dehumidifier: Garages are often used to store belongings that are not used daily, such as tools, sporting equipment, and furniture. Because of the damp, humid environment in a garage, these belongings are more likely to be damaged by moisture than in other areas of your home. Placing the Damp Defender dehumidifier in storage lockers or enclosed shelving units below the lowest shelf will protect them from mold, mildew, and dust.

Closet Dehumidifier: Looking for a convenient way to safeguard and prolong the lifespan of your clothing and shoes? Our compact dehumidifier is an ideal solution that can be easily mounted in your closet. Not only does it effectively reduce humidity levels, but it can also help your clothes feel softer and more comfortable in a less humid environment.

Bathroom Dehumidifier: Bathrooms are often plagued by humidity and unpleasant musty odors, but with the Damp Defender in your bathroom vanity or linen closet, you can easily eliminate these issues. By using this effective solution, you can ensure that your towels and linens smell fresh and inviting.

Kitchen Dehumidifier: If you’re looking to extend the shelf life of your food and prevent it from becoming stale or moldy, consider adding a dehumidifier to your pantry space. This simple addition can effectively reduce humidity levels and keep your food fresher for longer periods.

RV Dehumidifier: If you’re an RV owner, you’re probably familiar with the fact that your vehicle often sits unused for long periods. During these periods, the Damp Defender proves to be an excellent solution for combating musty odors and keeping your RV fresh and clean.

The size of the closet or area you need to dehumidify will determine the size and capacity of the dehumidifier you need. Generally, a spacious walk-in closet or area larger than 300 cubic ft. will require several dehumidifiers, while a smaller space like a cabinet or pantry will only require one.
