Choosing a Mini Dehumidifier

If you have small areas of your home such as closets, wardrobes or even a small bedroom, a mini dehumidifier could be just what you need to keep these areas from getting damp and musty. These smaller dehumidifiers are also useful in places such as under the sink where moisture tends to accumulate and cause damage. There are a number of different types of mini dehumidifiers, and they do not all work in the same way. While some work on the principle of “drying crystals” such as crystallized silica gel and require no electricity, batteries or moving parts to operate, other types include small tanks and fans, and work similar to how a larger dehumidifier operates. However, since they are smaller and designed for close spaces, they use much less electricity than larger dehumidifiers.

The Eva Dry mini dehumidifier is a good example of a model that uses the “moisture meter crystals” method of keeping the air dry. This style of mini dehumidifier does not require any batteries or electricity to remove humidity, and instead you monitor the dehumidifier by watching the crystals change colors. When the crystals turn from blue to pink, you simply plug the dehumidifier into a power outlet to dry it back out and renew it, so that you can use it again.

The Amcor mini dehumidifier, on the other hand, works in a different fashion. This mini dehumidifier includes a 1 pint tank, and includes a motor and 12V DC adaptor. It is simply a small sized dehumidifier which is perfectly suited for small spaces. It works quietly without the need for compression or refrigeration.

The Windchaser mini dehumidifier is another model of dehumidifier. It utilizes a thermoelectric peltier, which causes the moisture in the air to condense into water. It includes a 2.11 pint water tank, and uses very little electricity, making it economical to operate. As is the case with other mini dehumidifiers, its small size makes it perfect for small areas.

When choosing a mini dehumidifier, you will want to take several things into consideration. If you need a dehumidifier for an area where electricity is not an option, or in a location where you would prefer a non-mechanical dehumidifier, you might want to consider one that uses the drying silica crystals. On the other hand, if you would prefer a dehumidifier with a tank, you will need to make sure that you are able to empty the tank on a regular basis, so that it can continue to dehumidify the air. Whichever style you choose, you will be helping to prevent dampness from forming in small areas within your home.
