Air always contains a certain amount of water in the form of vapour. This is commonly
known as humidity. This determines the level of humidity in an atmosphere.
The capacity of the air to hold water vapour increases with temperature.
This is why in our homes, as soon as the temperature decreases, the vapour contained in the
air condenses, as is evident on the colder surfaces in the room, such as the windows, walls
The purpose of a dehumidifier is to remove the excess moisture from the air, avoiding the
damage caused by condensation. Experts have established that the optimum environmental
conditions for our well being and for the home are obtained between 40% and 60% relative
humidity. Below these levels tha air can feel too dry an may cause skin complaints and even
static electric shocks
With temperatures lower than 5°C, you are recommended to heat the room even minimally.
With heating, the condensation formed by the water vapour on windows and other cold sur-
faces evaporates into the air to be collected by the dehumidifier.
Air leaving the dehumidifier is usually about 1°C warmer than room temperature.
