Dehumidifiers are the single most important piece of equipment in our arsenal.  However, as with all things, there are different types for different situations…lets dissect….

The 4 most common dehumidifiers are desiccants, refrigerants dehumidifiers, low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers, and conventional refrigerant dehumidifiers.  

Desiccant dehumidifiers – This kind of dehumidifier creates the lowest humidity ratio, which means that it also creates the lowest vapor pressure.

Refrigerant dehumidifier – This kind of dehumidifier is the most energy-efficient type of dehumidifier. It performs efficiently down to 70°F. It is usually the most efficient dehumidifier to use in warm, wet environments.

LGR -Low-grain refrigerant dehumidifier – This kind of dehumidifier removes water vapor from the air using a process called condensation. LGR dehumidifiers continue to remove a significant amount of water vapor below 40 grains per pound.

Conventional refrigerant dehumidifier – This kind of dehumidifier loses efficiency as the air dries below 55 grains per pound. It removes water vapor from the air using a process called condensation

When considering a dehumidifier for your personal use in your residential property, the best option is a refrigerant dehumidifier.  Consider your home size to further narrow down your selections.  We hope this information has been beneficial, as we are always #heretohelp!
