Most Anticipated Dehumidifiers of 2012
When it comes to comfort, The humidity level plays a very large role in determining how a person feels. Hot climates can quickly become oppressive if the humidity is too high, and cold temperatures, coupled with high humidity, can lead to electronic and mechanical malfunctions due to condensation and freezing. A good dehumidifier is important in maintaining the proper humidity level for an environment, and investing in one that will do the job and perform well over a long lifespan is important. With that, each year brings with it new technological improvements and advancements in the realm of dehumidifier technology. Let’s take a look at what 2012 will have in store for us.
Whynter RPD-651W Energy Star, Portable Dehumidifier
This dehumidifier sports a 65-pint holding tank, as well as a 21-pint removable bucket. This huge storage capacity will allow it to function for extended periods of time without maintenance, which means owners have more time to focus on other things. The automatic on/off feature also allows the operator to set his or her desired humidity level and let the unit run unattended, since it will cycle on and off as needed instead of running for a pre-determined amount of time and requiring a manual reset, as some dehumidifier units do. Furthermore, this unit is equipped with an automatic defroster, which means that it can be used in colder climates without worry that it will freeze up or become inoperative due to freezing.
Sunpentown SD-652Ti, UV Light and Ti02 Mini Dehumidifier
Many dehumidifiers are large, noisy, and conspicuous, which makes them difficult to place inside of smaller homes or cramped apartments. Spaces like closets and pantries may contain goods or possessions that cannot or should not be exposed to humidity for long periods of time, and typical dehumidifiers may be too large to fit in these spaces. The Sunpentown SD-652Ti is the perfect fit for these spaces, since it requires very little space and is almost completely self-sufficient. This little wonder uses a “thermo-electric” system to pull humidity out of the air while only using a fraction of the energy of a typical condenser-driven humidifier. It also has a UV light antibacterial system to keep itself clean, so you don’t have to worry about the unit building up harmful bacteria. Lastly, the unit features an automatic shut-off feature when the tank is full, which provides peace of mind and security for the owner.
GE 50 Pint ADER50LN Basement Dehumidifier
The last dehumidifier on the list is intended as a basement-exclusive unit, meaning that it is primarily intended to be stationary, a true “set-and-forget” model. It features an automatic restart capability in the case of power loss (a distinct possibility in the case of heavy storms), as well as the ability to set a specific humidity level. This unit is a true powerhouse, but requires that it be drained to a level below the unit itself (which shouldn’t be a problem in most basements)
Ultimately, it looks like 2012 is shaping up to be a great year for dehumidifiers.
