How to choose your dehumidifier

Dehumidifiers can be used in a large number of applications, but the dehumidifier has to have appropriate power to fulfill its purpose. Read about ways to select the right dehumidifier and use the efficiency calculator we developed for you.


APPLICATION The required capacity of the dehumidifier (l/24h) is equal to:
BASEMENT The volume of the room divided by 15 in standard conditions
RESTAURATION AFTER FLOOD The volume of the room divided by 6 in standard conditions
WAREHOUSE WITH FOOD:
CHEESE, FRUIT...
The volume of the room divided by 10 plus the loss of water from the food
SWIMMING POOL OR JACUZZI The volume of the room divided by 10 plus 0,4 litres of water per m2 of the swimming pool per day
ROOM WITH MANY PEOPLE The volume of the room divided by 15 plus 4,4 litres of water per person per 24h
ROOM WITH LARGE ANIMALS The volume of the room divided by 15 plus 6 litres of water per large animal per 24h





Example BASEMENT
Volume of the room V = 650 m3
Recommended dehumidifier's capacity: 650:15 = 41 l/24h
You can choose: DH 752 or DH 44



Example RESTAURATION AFTER FLOOD
Volume of the room V = 150 m3
Recommended dehumidifier's capacity: 150:6 = 25 l/24h
You can choose: DH 732 or DH 26



Example SWIMMING POOL
Area of the swimming pool A = 250 m2
Volume of the room V = 2800 m3
Recommended dehumidifier's capacity with closed windows:
2800:10 + 0,4*250 = 380 l/24h
You can choose: 4 units of DH 92, 4 units of DH 772 or 2 units of DH 7160
With a proper ventilation with the outside you can reduce
the number of dehumidifiers required




Example ROOM WITH MANY PEOPLE
Volume of the room V = 600 m3
People = 25
Recommended dehumidifier's capacity with closed windows:
600:15 + 4,4*25 = 150 l/24h
You can choose: 2 units of DH 92, 2 units of DH 772 or 1 unit DH 7160
With a proper ventilation with the outside you can reduce
the number of dehumidifiers required


How to improve the dehumidification process:

close windows and doors
place the dehumidifier in the middle of the room
keep the dehumidifier away from heat sources
increase the efficiency of the dehumidifier with an electric airflow or an infrared heater placed in the same room
increase the efficiency of the dehumidifier with a blower or a fan placed in the same room
