Our carpet drying dehumidifiers help to reduce the humidity in enclosed structural environments by removing water vapor from the air. With proper use, dehumidifiers can help dry wet materials like carpets, carpets pads, floors, walls, building contents, and more. Using portable dehumidifiers may also prevent secondary damage caused by high humidity. Comes with a built-in air duct ring for easy attachment to expandable ducting. Depending on current electrical rates, machine can be run for a 24 hour period, and use approximately $1.50 worth of electricity for that entire 24 hour period.
You should operate your portable dehumidifier in an enclosed area, as this creates a drying chamber. Close all doors, windows or areas that open to the outside to maximize the unit's water removal efficiency. Keep all traffic through the drying chamber to a minimum. Place the unit in the middle of the room, away from walls and doors.
If you transport a dehumidifier in a horizontal position, set it upright for at least 30 minutes before you turn it on. This is necessary because when the machine is horizontal, the oil from the compressor flows into the refrigerant coils reducing the ability of the dehumidifier to function.
