Choosing a Portable Dehumidifier

Many homeowners, when choosing a dehumidifier for their home, prefer to select a portable dehumidifier. Portable dehumidifiers are convenient in that they can easily be moved to any room of the home, wherever dehumidification is needed. This can save the expense of purchasing several dehumidifiers. These dehumidifiers are perfect for any room in your home, and are easily moved by means of wheels and a carrying handle, which makes it simple to transport them from room to room, or even up and down stairs. If you need a closet dehumidifier because your closet is damp, a portable dehumidifier will work well in this space. This style of dehumidifier often has an optional drainage port, in addition to the built-in water tank. This feature allows you to direct the water automatically to a drain, eliminating the need to empty the water tank continuously. This can be exceptionally useful in situations where it would be inconvenient to empty the water often, and would allow the dehumidifier to operate without it shutting off continuously due to a full water tank. These dehumidifiers are generally designed to operate quietly, which makes them perfect even for rooms such as bedrooms or other living areas.

There are many different makes and models of portable dehumidifiers from which to choose, in a variety of sizes to suit every need. One example is the Soleus portable dehumidifier, which is a 40 pint dehumidifier. This unit is extremely quiet and quite portable. It weighs less than half of what a standard dehumidifier does, which makes it easy to transport from room to room. It is also extremely quiet, and can be used even at night in bedrooms. It includes built-in wheels, and has a carrying handle to make it easy to carry, and has an optional drainage port. It is able to remove 40 pints of moisture from the air on a daily basis, and has an 11.5 capacity water tank. Another excellent model would be the Amana D565E portable dehumidifier, which operates efficiently, is quite portable and easy to move, and includes a front access water tank and direct drain connection.

When choosing a portable dehumidifier, you might also wish to consider a portable air conditioner dehumidifier, such as the Soleus LX-120. This combination dehumidifier/air conditioner uses evaporative technology, and it can be used without being permanently installed. It comes with a window kit, which is compatible with sliding doors and windows, and can also operate as a heater or fan. Any of these portable dehumidifiers would make an excellent choice for your home.
