Dehumidifiers

Dehumidifiers Australia: Your Solution to Mould, Excess Moisture, and Humidity Issues

Dehumidifiers are an appliance designed to regulate humidity levels by removing excess moisture from the air in your home or workplace. These devices work efficiently to create a drier, more comfortable environment, which is crucial for preventing the growth of mould, mildew, and dust mites.

Battling mould, excess moisture, or humidity issues can be a daunting task. However, dehumidifiers can help you tackle these problems with ease. At Healthy Habitats, we specialise in providing the best dehumidifiers in the country to suit your needs.

How Dehumidifiers Function

  • Drawing in damp air: Dehumidifiers are equipped with powerful fans that pull in the moisture-laden air from your living space.
  • Extracting moisture: As the wet air passes through the dehumidifier, the device separates the moisture from the air using either a refrigeration or desiccant process.
  • Collecting water: The extracted moisture is then drained into a removable water tank, which can be easily emptied when full.
  • Releasing dry air: Finally, the dehumidifier releases the now-dry air back into the room, contributing to a more pleasant and healthier living space.

Why are they popular in Australia

With climate changes leading to increased flooding, heavier rainfalls, and higher humidity levels across the country, dehumidifiers in Australia have become a necessity for maintaining a healthy and comfortable living environment. Here are some key reasons why you should consider purchasing a dehumidifier:

Health Improvement: High humidity levels can contribute to respiratory issues, allergies, and other health problems. Dehumidifiers help reduce excess moisture, creating a healthier environment for you and your family.

Property Protection: Excess humidity can damage your property by causing wood rot and promoting mould and mildew growth on walls, ceilings, carpets, and furnishings. Dehumidifiers help prevent these issues by maintaining optimal humidity levels.

Versatility: Our collection includes dehumidifiers of various sizes and styles to fit your specific requirements. From compact units for smaller spaces to heavy-duty models for large areas, we have the perfect model for you.

Understanding the different types

Dehumidifiers fall into two main categories: compressor dehumidifiers and desiccant dehumidifiers. The choice between the two depends on your climate as well as your room's temperature:

Compressor Dehumidifiers: Suitable for warmer climates and for rooms with an internal temperature of 20°C or above. Compressor dehumidifiers use a refrigeration system to cool the air drawn into the machine, condense and remove moisture from that air, and release dry air back into the room.

Desiccant Dehumidifiers: Ideal for cooler climates or for rooms with an internal temperature below 20°C. These dehumidifiers use a moisture-absorbing material to extract moisture from the air, followed by a heating process to remove that moisture from the desiccant and then release dry air back into the room.

Both types are effective at removing moisture, but it is crucial to select the one that best suits your climate and room's temperature to maximise efficiency.

Benefits for improving air quality and comfort

Investing in a dehumidifier comes with numerous benefits for your home or work place, including:

Mould Prevention: By reducing humidity levels, dehumidifiers help eliminate the conditions that promote mould growth, protecting your property and health.

Dust Mite Control: High humidity levels provide an ideal breeding ground for dust mites. Dehumidifiers help maintain a drier environment, reducing dust mite populations.

Respiratory and Allergy Relief: Lowering humidity levels can significantly improve respiratory and allergy symptoms by reducing mould spores, dust mites, and other allergens in the air.

Condensation Reduction: Dehumidifiers help prevent condensation build-up on windows, reducing the risk of mould and mite growth in these areas.

Faster Clothes Drying: Using a dehumidifier in the same room as your drying clothes can accelerate the drying process by extracting moisture more efficiently.

Enhanced A/C Performance: Dehumidifiers can improve the effectiveness of your refrigerant A/C by reducing the moisture content in the air, making it easier for the A/C to cool the space.

Choosing the right one: Factors to consider

Before selecting a dehumidifier, it's essential to consider several factors to ensure you pick the right model for your needs:

Room Size: Measure the square footage of the space where you plan to use the dehumidifier. Match the room size to the dehumidifier's capacity to ensure optimal performance.

Temperature: As mentioned earlier, choose between compressor and desiccant dehumidifiers based on your climate or room's temperature.

Portability: If you plan to move the dehumidifier between rooms frequently, consider a compact and lightweight model with casters or handles for easy transportation.

Additional Features: Some dehumidifiers come with extra features such as built-in hygrometers that display the rooms humidity and temperature, timers, and air filters. Consider whether these features are important for your specific needs.

Studies and resources  

Health Improvement: High humidity levels can contribute to respiratory issues, allergies, and other health problems. According to a study by Arundel et al. (1986), relative humidity levels between 40% and 60% are ideal for minimising adverse health effects. Maintaining optimal humidity levels helps reduce allergens and improve overall indoor air quality, leading to better health outcomes.

Mould Prevention: Reducing humidity levels helps eliminate the conditions that promote mould growth. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), controlling moisture levels and maintaining relative humidity below 60% can help prevent mould growth.

Dust Mite Control: High humidity levels provide an ideal breeding ground for dust mites. A study by Arlian et al. (2001) found that reducing humidity levels to below 50% can significantly decrease dust mite populations, thereby improving indoor air quality.

Respiratory and Allergy Relief: Lowering humidity levels can significantly improve respiratory and allergy symptoms. A review by Mendell et al. (2011) indicates that managing indoor moisture and humidity levels can help reduce the risk of asthma and allergies.
