Dehumidifier

The apartment air, so saturated with the cold wet of the rainy wether is another reason why the chill in your bones seems never to go away. Perhaps the rattling little machine in the corner will be able to close the door on overwhelming humidity and dry your dripping bones once and for all. Just sit on the sofa and pray that the manager at the hardware store knew what he was talking about. A dehumidifier is typically a household appliance that reduces the level of humidity in the air, usually for health reasons. Humid air can cause mold and mildew to grow inside homes, which pose various health risks. Very humid climates or air make some people extremely uncomfortable, causing excessive sweating that can't evaporate in the already-moisture-saturated air. It can also cause condensation that can disrupt sleeping, and/or prevent laundry from drying thoroughly enough. Higher humidity is also preferred by most insects, including clothes moths, fleas, and cockroaches. Relative humidity in dwellings is preferably 30 to 50 percent. Dehumidifiers are also used in industrial climatic chambers, to fix relative humidity within certain rooms to stay at levels conducive to production. Electronic dehumidifiers use a peltier heat pump to generate a cool surface for condensing the water vapour from the air. The design is simpler as there are no moving parts, and has the benefit of being very quiet compared to a dehumidifier with a mechanical compressor. However, because of its relatively poor Coefficient of Performance, this design is mainly used for small dehumidifiers.
