BodyHumidifier for Asthma: Good or Bad?Medically reviewed by Marc Meth, MD, FACAAI, FAAAI — Written by Corey Whelan on January 20, 2020If you have asthma, your home’s humidity level can affect your health. Too little humidity and your nose and throat can become dry and irritated, making colds worse and asthma harder to control. Too much humidity and allergens such as dust mites and mold may escalate, triggering allergic reactions or asthma attacks. Very humid air is also heavy, which may make it harder to breathe. In general, indoor humidity levels that range from 30 to 50 percent may be best for those with asthma. This humidity level is also usually comfortable for most people.Keeping the air at the right humidity level may help reduce asthma symptoms. A humidifier adds either warm or cool moisture into the air in the form of vapor mist. It can help you regulate the humidity in your home but must be regulated and well-maintained or it may make asthma symptoms worse. Humidifiers and asthma. The indoor humidity level is affected by both air temperature and weather conditions outdoors. During cold weather, the air in your home may be dry. Indoor heating can add to the dryness. If you live in a dry climate year-round, not enough moisture in the air may be a constant fact of life. In both instances, a humidifier can help you maintain just the right amount of indoor humidity.There’s no medical consensus about the ability of humidifiers to alleviate asthma symptoms. However, if your indoor air is dry enough to adversely affect your airways and respiratory system, a humidifier may be helpful.Cautions. If you do decide to use a humidifier, here are a few things to know first:Humidifiers can worsen asthma if they run nonstop or too high, making the air very humid. If you fill your humidifier with tap water, airborne minerals from water may also irritate your lungs. Humidifiers can also make asthma worse if they’re not cleaned regularly or properly. A dirty humidifier can harbor bacteria and fungi, which they release into the air. Cleaning your humidifier with products containing chemicals or bleach may also be irritating to the respiratory system.Dehumidifiers and asthma. Humidity and dampness can occur in any type of climate, from hot to cold. Breathing in overly humid air can cause respiratory distress and exacerbate asthma. Dehumidifiers are electrical appliances that remove water from air. Using a dehumidifier can help bring the humidity down in an overly humid home. They can also reduce the buildup of mold and dust mites. If you already have mold in your home, a dehumidifier won’t remove it. It can, however, reduce or eliminate additional mold growth. Which is better?There’s no definitive answer about which is better — a humidifier or a dehumidifier — for people with asthma. It often depends on the specific individual and their asthma triggers. It can be confusing trying to decide which, if any, you need. If your home becomes very dry at certain times of year, a humidifier can add humidity to the air, helping you breathe better. If the reverse is true and you live in a damp environment, a dehumidifier may help make the air more comfortable to breathe.Your current health needs should also be taken into account. Many people automatically reach for a humidifier when they have a cold or respiratory infection, assuming that breathing in moist air will help break up congestion. Some doctors recommend this as well. Using a humidifier may make it easier for you to breathe in some instances but may also make a respiratory infection worse if you have asthma or an allergy to mold or dust mites. If you or your child has asthma and you wish to use a humidifier:Make sure it’s cleaned every 1 to 3 days and is free of mineralized crusts.Change the filter weekly, or as often as is recommended by the manufacturer.Use demineralized or distilled water to fill it, rather than tap water.Wash it with natural cleansers such as white vinegar or mild dish soap, rather than bleach or chemical cleansers.Best products. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers range in price and in specifications. Humidifiers. Before buying a humidifier, decide whether you want a warm- or cool-mist model. Also, make sure to take the size of your room into account. Features to look for in a humidifier include:cost number of output settingseasy to cleantimer or automatic shut-off featurenoise level Dehumidifiers. Before buying a dehumidifier, consider the amount of dampness in your home and the size of the room where your dehumidifier will run. Dehumidifiers come in several sizes. Small units typically remove around 30 pints of water a day. Large units can remove up to 70 pints. Like humidifiers, dehumidifiers must be kept clean. Many need to have the water they capture manually removed. Features to look for in a dehumidifier include:costsizenoise leveleasy to lift and clean digital readout or other easy-to-access function so you can monitor your home’s humidity levelautomatic shutoff valve or other safety controls that help prevent overheating or water overflow Lifestyle tips for asthma. Keeping your home’s air at an appropriate humidity level may help, but it’s not enough to control asthma completely. If you have asthma, your doctor has probably prescribed controller and rescue medications for you. It’s important that you follow your doctor’s directions and continue to use any asthma prevention medications you are prescribed, even when your symptoms are under control. In addition to taking your prescriptions, these tips may help you to better manage asthma:Identify and avoid asthma triggers, such as pollen, animal dander, and dust mites.Do not smoke or vape. Avoid second- and thirdhand smoke.Get a flu shot annually.Avoid colds and viruses by washing your hands often and by avoiding people who are ill.Get enough sleep.Exercise regularly.When to see a doctor. Asthma can adversely affect your quality of life but medical interventions can help significantly. If you have early warning signs of asthma, see your doctor. These may include:shortness of breathcoughingwheezingexhaustiontightness in the chestMany people don’t know they have asthma until they have an asthma attack. If you experience an asthma attack, call 911 or your doctor immediately. Symptoms of an asthma attack include: pain or tightness in the chestsevere shortness of breath or trouble breathinguncontrollable coughing or wheezingThe bottom line. If your home has overly dry air, a humidifier may help make your environment more comfortable. For people with asthma, this can make the air less irritating and easier to breathe. However, a humidifier can also make asthma symptoms worse if it’s not cleaned and maintained properly or promotes the growth of organisms that the person is allergic to.

BodyDo I Need a Humidifier or Dehumidifier for Asthma and Allergy June 25, 2020 By Lidia Wassenhoven Asthma is a chronic disease condition that affects the airways of the lungs and the symptoms are similar to those caused by allergies. People living with asthma have inflamed airways that can become even worse if something triggers the symptoms. Asthma is incurable, but you can manage it. This article tells you all you need to know about asthma and if you need a humidifier or a dehumidifier for asthma and allergies. Asthma causes the inflammation and narrowing of the airways in the lungs. They also produce extra mucus, which makes it difficult for air to pass through. Symptoms of asthma present themselves as periodic attacks characterised by the tightness of the chest and difficulty in breathing. Now, asthma is characterised with difficulty in breathing. When something triggers your asthma symptoms, it makes it difficult for you to breathe correctly. You start coughing and wheezing, and you develop shortness of breath. An increase in physical activity sometimes causes this. Asthma affects 1 in 13 people worldwide. According to CDC, more than 25 million people in America have asthma. This means 7.7% of adults and 8.4% of children in America have asthma. That is how prevalent the disease is. Asthma attacks can be controlled by taking medication or by using a quick-relief inhaler. Allergies and Asthma: What you need to know. Having known a little about asthma, it is necessary to also know that allergies isn’t the same as allergens and asthma. Allergies occur when the body’s immune system reacts unfavourably to a foreign substance. This may be Food, drugs, etc can cause them. But the most common ones are caused by exposure to tiny airborne particles that can cause you to sneeze, cough and can make your eyes water. These materials that cause allergies are called allergens. Allergens include pollen, dust, pet dander, cockroach waste, etc. When these symptoms occur, you tend to have difficulty in breathing and a tightness in your chest. This has been liked to asthma. There is a type of asthma that is triggered by allergies. It has been found that over 70% of adults with asthma also have allergies. Also Read: Best Humidifier for sleep Apnea Different Types Of Asthma. This Asthma classification is based on the different kinds of causes. These are: Childhood asthma:. This type of asthma affects millions of kids worldwide. Most kids who have asthma develop it before they are five years old. Children are more likely to have asthma that occurs with frequent “attacks”. Sometimes the attacks occur daily and are severe; others only happen due to a heightened sensitivity to allergens, which is common in children. Mild asthma usually resolves itself without treatment, while severe cases can follow a child into adulthood. Adult-onset asthma: . This type is more critical than the one common in kids. It is more persistent, and the sufferers are more prone to attacks. They require daily management of breathing and prevention of the symptoms. This type is more common among obese people and can show up in women after the age of 20. This type of asthma is also more prevalent amongst smokers, older people and pregnant women. Occupational asthma: . This type of asthma presents itself among people that work in jobs that involve inhaling dust, fumes and other potentially dangerous materials that affect breathing. This is common among employment in industries, laboratories and bakeries. This type of asthma can trigger adult-onset asthma or bring back childhood asthma. The sufferers usually have red eyes and a runny nose. Severe asthma: . The sufferers of this asthma tend to have constant and persistent asthma symptoms and difficulty in breathing. These symptoms are typically controlled by medications and avoidance of likely triggers. Some, however, still find it difficult to control their symptoms with available asthma medications, so they use newer drugs. Seasonal/allergic asthma: . This type of asthma only occurs as a result of the allergens present in the sufferer’s environment. They are more severe during pollen season or in cold air and during winter. They still have asthma, but they only experience symptoms during those periods. Also Read: Best steam whole room humidifier Asthma and Humidity Level: Can a low or High humidity Triggers Asthma? The humidity levels in your home can play a big role in your breathing quality. Humidity is how much water vapour is present in the air. Humidity levels that are too high or too low can affect us in different ways. It has been found that a healthy level of indoor humidity is about 30% to 50%. Anything higher can cause faster growth of microorganisms like dust mites and mould, which are 2 of the most common allergens. If it is too low, it can cause dry skin, dry and cracked lips and throat and sinusitis. While very high humidity may cause nasal congestion and difficulty in breathing, especially for asthmatic patients, low humidity has its issues. When the air is too dry, it causes the mucous membranes in the sinus to dry up. This causes the sinus to become irritated and increases your chances of catching a cold or flu. Also, viruses are more likely to survive longer in dry air than in humid air. Very low humidity can increase feelings of congestion and make breathing harder, thereby triggering some asthma symptoms. To avoid this, during periods where the air is very dry, for example, winter, increase the humidity level in your home using a humidifier or vaporiser. Also Read: Best humidifier for desert climate What does a Humidifier do for Asthma? Humidifiers are devices that add water vapour to the air to increase the level of relative humidity in the environment. They can help alleviate symptoms of dry air, like dry skin, breathing problems and sinusitis. When humidifiers are appropriately used, they can be very useful. If they aren’t cleaned properly, they can spread germs and airborne allergens that can affect the health of your family. Also, if the humidity levels get too high, they can aid the growth of microorganisms and mould. If the air is very dry, especially in the winter, and it triggers your asthma conditions, a humidifier can help alleviate the symptoms. However, it shouldn’t be allowed to get too high because the air that has a high level of humidity can be too heavy to breathe for asthmatic patients. What does a Dehumidifier do for allergies and Asthma Attack? A dehumidifier is a machine that removes water vapour from the environment. They are used to reduce the humidity in your home. They are especially useful in areas and seasons with high humidity. A dehumidifier can help alleviate the discomfort faced by asthmatic patients breathing in denser air. It can also reduce the feeling of congestion caused by high humidity. A dehumidifier can also reduce the growth of microorganisms and mould in the home. Also Read: Best Dehumidifier for conservatory What is the best Humidity level for Asthma? High humidity is hard to breathe for people with asthma. Humid air activates nerves in the airways that make them get narrow. This makes it hard for asthma patients that already have narrow airways to breathe. It is stagnant enough to carry pollutants and allergens that can trigger your asthma symptoms. These allergens thrive when the humidity levels are very high, like 60% to 80%. To control the humidity levels, you can install a hygrometer or humidistat to regulate it. However, a low humidity level can also trigger asthmatic symptoms. The best humidity level for asthma and allergies is anyone from 30% to 50%. Anything lower or higher can affect you negatively. Also Read: Aprilaire 800 whole house humidifier review Bottom Line: Dehumidifier or Humidifier for Asthma and Allergies. Using a humidifier or dehumidifier for asthma and allergies largely depends on the current level of humidity in your home. It also depends on the season. During seasons of very high humidity, a dehumidifier might be your best bet. It reduces the humidity in your indoor air to an acceptable level. During periods of low humidity, a humidifier increases the humidity in your home and alleviates the symptoms of dry air. As long as it’s used correctly and cleaned regularly, there won’t be any danger of spreading allergens. The choice of humidifier or dehumidifier also depends on your region. If you live in an area with a temperate or arid climate, the best humidifier fir asthma and allergies is a better choice. Meanwhile, if your region has a high humidity level, the best humidifier for COPD, asthma and allergies is more useful. You can also use both. Use a humidifier during periods of low humidity and a dehumidifier during periods of high humidity. Whatever you do, the goal should be to keep the humidity level at a healthy level so as not to trigger your asthma and allergies.

BodyHow to Choose a Dehumidifier Using a dehumidifier can make a dramatic difference to your indoor environment. For anyone with allergies, eczema or asthma, controlling the relative humidity of the home or office has important health benefits. Anyone with arthritis or rheumatism can benefit from a drier home too. This is a guide to help you choose the right dehumidifier for your home or other premises. Types of dehumidifier. Compressor (refrigeration) dehumidifiers A Compressor Dehumidifier works by drawing in air that passes over a filter and then over cold coils, much like those on a refrigerator. As the coils cool, the water condenses and drips into a collection bucket within the unit. The air is then reheated to room temperature and blown back out of the dehumidifier. Compressor dehumidifiers have been around the longest and are still the most popular because they are reliable and energy efficient except at very low temperatures. They won’t work at all below 3˚C (38˚F) and perform poorly when the temperature is below 10˚C (50˚F) and humidity is also low. This only occurs in unheated properties. It is rare for a home, even one with only partial heating, to have a temperature as low as 10˚ C (50˚F). Desiccant dehumidifiers Desiccant Dehumidifiers tend to be smaller, lighter and can be quieter than compressor units. They are often used in premises where temperatures are less than 10˚C (50˚F ) or when a very low RH is required. Desiccants will extract moisture down to a humidity level as low as 10% whereas compressor dehumidifiers can’t get much below 40% RH, depending on temperature. In an occupied domestic environment Relative Humidity below 40% is not advisable for health reasons. Desiccant dehumidifiers use a desiccant material, typically Zeolite, which absorbs water vapour from the air in a similar way to silica gel. A fan draws air into the dehumidifier and passes it through a section of a slowly rotating wheel holding the desiccant which dries the air.The moisture is extracted from the desiccant by heating a section of the wheel not being used to dry the air. All desiccant units are rated in test conditions of 60% humidity (as opposed to 80% for compressor units) and 30 degrees centigrade temperature. They will extract the same amount of moisture irrespective of the temperature in which they are working and In a typical UK home a desiccant dehumidifier will use twice as much electricity to extract the same amount of water as a good compressor dehumidifier. Few desiccant dehumidifiers have humidistat settings, so they may take out more water than necessary and prove expensive. However there are no consumables on a desiccant unit - the desiccant material does not expire and will not need to be replaced / topped up. The lifespan of a desiccant unit will tend to be longer than a compressor unit as it is a simpler process with fewer moving parts, no compressor and no refrigerant gas held under high pressure that can potentially fail Thermo-electric and absorption Compact, thermo-electric Peltier effect dehumidifiers are ideal for small spaces and usually remove up to 500ml moisture a day. They are quiet and lightweight so easily portable as there is no compressor. They are often described as "Mini Dehumidifiers". Non-electric moisture absorbers are silent in use and work with a desiccant such as a layer of crystals that absorb the humidity through the top of the device and then filter it into a collection tub at the base. The right choice. If you have an unoccupied property, boat or caravan or your property has a below average level of heating at all times, then a desiccant dehumidifier would be the right choice. They are good for: Cellar drying Document storage / archiving Car / vehicle storage Boat Caravan Motorhome If you live in a home which has normal levels of heating throughout the day, then a compressor dehumidifier is by far the better choice. It will perform better, cost you significantly less to run and if you choose a large capacity model with automatic controls it will save you even more money and last much longer. They are good for: Mould / damp prevention at home Condensation reduction Laundry / clothes drying No moisture absorber or mini dehumidifier will ever be as powerful as an electric dehumidifier but they are popular and good in places where running a powered dehumidifier is impractical: small spaces cars cupboards wardrobes Low purchase price or low running cost? When choosing the best dehumidifier to protect your home from condensation and dampness you need to consider the total long term cost not just the purchase price. The cost of electricity consumed is an important consideration. Dehumidifiers with ordinary humidistats are inefficient and costly to run. A large capacity dehumidifier with an ordinary humidistat will need to adjusted several times a day or it will run unnecessarily wasting electricity. Dehumidifiers with intelligent control technology are up to 50% more efficient saving between £30 and £55 every year. The compressor Dehumidifiers from Ebac have this feature, known as ‘Smart Control’. Choosing a dehumidifier with a larger capacity than you need will also save money in the longer term because it will need to run less often than a lower capacity dehumidifier. This means it’ll last longer too. How warm and busy is your home? Another important factor is how you heat your home. For example if you heat every room in your home 24 hours every day, you probably won’t need a dehumidifier at all. However this is a very expensive solution and most people only heat their homes for part of the day and some rooms are never heated at all. Another factor is the amount of moisture you put in to the air. As we breathe, we add moisture to the air and very day activities such as having a bath/shower, boiling water for cooking, and even drying our laundry also adds moisture to the air. The humidity level in your home is also therefore affected by the number of people in it. For example, 2 people in a 5 bedroom house will need to remove less moisture than 2 people in a 2 bedroom house, because the bigger house has more capacity to hold the moisture. How much water do you need to remove? For many years, one of the key factors when comparing dehumidifiers has been published extraction rates - often ranging from 12 – 25 litres extraction per day. However these figures are misleading. The requirement for most homes in the UK is from 1 litre for a 1-person household to 2.5 litres of water extraction per day in a home of 5 or more people. In order to achieve 12+ litres extraction per day, a dehumidifier would need to be used in a tropical swamp. These tropical conditions - where the amount of water extracted is very high – are not found in the UK. The amount of water you need to remove is determined by several factors. How many people live in the house, your daily routines and the type of house you live in. Bungalows, for instance, are more prone to condensation and dampness than 2 storey houses. Homes where there are unheated rooms or the heating isn’t on for 24 hours each day are also more prone to condensation and dampness. Summary. Because it doesn't make economic sense to heat every room in your home for every hour of every day and because there are so many other variables, the best advice is to buy a dehumidifier with a high capacity and make sure it has an intelligent automatic control system such as Ebac’s patented Smart Control. For tackling damp and mould in cupboards and small spaces or for clearing condensation and musty smells from unoccupied and unheated boats, caravans and holiday homes, a desiccant dehumidifier or a granular adsorption block will do the trick. Mini dehumidifiers that use Peltier thermo-electric technology are particularly effective here too. See our recommended Dehumidifiers here

Asthma is a condition many people battle with daily that affects the airways in the lungs. Asthmatics breathing passages are more sensitive than a non-sufferer and can be triggered by many different things. Once asthma strikes, muscles around the airways contract. This makes the passages tighter and narrower, restricting the flow of oxygen to the lungs. Sometimes inflammation can also occur, resulting in a build-up of sputum and making the airways even narrower. Unfortunately, as a long-term disease, asthma cannot be cured with a short cycle of medication. Many people manage their ongoing issue with medication, lifestyle changes, and monitoring their environment. Symptoms of Asthma. Every different individual’s experience with asthma will vary. Sometimes symptoms can be severe for one, whereas they may only be mild for another. Possible signs of asthma include: Wheezing Coughing Shortening of breath Tightness in the chest All of the above can impact an asthmatics ability to breathe easily. However, when somebody is diagnosed and receives the correct medication, they can usually lead a very normal life. Many of us probably know a person living with asthma who can do just as much work and exercise as everybody else, if not even more. Asthma Attacks. Unfortunately, when the above symptoms suddenly worsen, it is referred to as an asthma attack. Another key indicator of an attack could be that a person’s blue reliever, also known as an inhaler, does not seem to be working. Children may even say they feel a pain in their chest or tummy. According to the NHS, asthma attacks happen every 10 seconds on average in the UK, and three people die every day. However, if a person is receiving the correct treatment, the chances of suffering from an attack are significantly lowered. Then, if an asthmatic is able to keep away from the things that kickstart their symptoms, the chances become even less likely. Asthma in Adults and Children. Both adults and children can suffer from asthma. Just like many other diseases, the condition can still be contracted later in life. Medical professionals believe the condition stems from either a genetic predisposition or a person’s general environment. For adults, it is an environment that plays a larger role in the likelihood of contracting the condition. If somebody works in a space where he or she repeatedly breathe in irritable chemicals or dust, asthma is more likely to become an issue. Workplaces such as bakeries, building sites, or car-spraying workshops often have air thick with alien substances. Employees are therefore likely to breathe this unclean air and cause a reaction inside the airways. Contracting asthma in this way is known as non-allergenic. Youngsters, on the other hand, are more likely to suffer from associated with allergic reaction. This is why it’s very common for asthma to run in the family as they say. For parents who have a history of the disease, it is important to create a safe environment for their children. Asthma Causes. Also, it is extremely advised parents take their children to be checked by a family GP. Triggers are not always the same for every person. One person may only suffer slight discomfort in cold weather or just after exercise. Yet, another individual may have very specific triggers that cause a severe reaction, such as animal fur or house dust. Common triggers include the likes of: Pollen, Fur, and Dust House Damp Common Cold Cold Weather Lung Irritants such as Tobacco Smoke and Aerosols Air Pollution Exercise Stress and Raised Emotions Asthmatics may not have to avoid these triggers entirely. For example, a person who suffers from exercise-induced asthma may still enjoy running in an evening or cycling to work. So long as they have their reliever on hand, symptoms can be well managed and keep the person safe from an attack. Diagnosing and Treating Asthma. Asthmatics can assess the effect asthma is having on their body quite easily with a machine known as a peak flow meter. Fortunately, this equipment is available to buy for asthmatics to use at home. A small hand-held plastic model can also be carried easily, so it can be used at any time. Alternatively, people can simply visit their local GP. Whilst there, a doctor may also be able to carry out an x-ray. This could detect and outline any other conditions affecting the lungs. Once a person is diagnosed with asthma they will typically be given a suitable treatment. As everybody’s experience with the disease is different, not everybody receives the same medication. The most common kind is known as an inhaler, also known as a puffer or reliever. Inhalers. Inhalers are small devices that dispense a measured dose of medication into the airways and lungs. Preventer inhalers control inflammation and are the most common kind prescribed by GPs. However, once symptoms start, a reliever inhaler may need to be used. Relievers contain short-acting beta agonists, also known as SABAs, that relax the muscles surrounding the airways. Once the medication begins to take effect, the airways widen and make it easier for the individual to breathe. Other treatments include the likes of tablets and an injection administered by a doctor. Both of these are designed to reduce inflammation but are not as common as inhalers. Controlling household environments. Plus, on top of prescribed medication, GPs may also advise lifestyle changes. Controlling the household environment and keeping it free from damp and dust can have a great impact. Regular cleaning, dusting and making the most of a dehumidifier are all easy ways of creating a safer low-risk home. Read: What to Consider When Buying Dehumidifiers? Read: Looking for the Best Dehumidifiers for Your House? Read On! Healthy Eating. Healthy eating with highly nutritious food can also have an effect on reducing the risk of raised symptoms. For asthmatics who are overweight, healthy eating can go a long way in improving their overall wellbeing. By losing weight over time through a nutritious diet, regular breathing may become much easier. Exercise. As long as you looking after your asthma, you can enjoy any type of exercise. Exercise is for those who have asthma, by providing lungs with a workout which will lower the risk of asthma symptoms. Regular exercise can help reduce asthma symptoms by: Boosting the immune system so asthma triggered by coughs and colds is reduced Improving lung capacity which can help build stamina Lifting the mood of the individual, studies by Asthma UK show that people who are less stressed are at a lower risk of asthma symptoms Helping hit weight loss targets, which helps to reduce the risk of symptoms of an asthma attack. Asthma Support. If you are concerned you or someone you may know is suffering from asthma seek professional help. Asthma affects people of all ages throughout Great Britain and if caught early can be managed easily. However, if left undetected or untreated, the results can be fatal. Every day people die of asthma attacks in the UK that could have otherwise been prevented. There are also many resources online available to help you learn more about asthma, as well as how to detect it’s symptoms.

BodyAre Dehumidifiers Good For Asthma?29th June 2018 Asthma is a common long-term condition that affects about 5 million people in the UK and requires ongoing management. Around 160,000 people are diagnosed with asthma every year. It affects people of all ages but often starts in childhood, although it can develop for the first time in adults. But, having asthma means different things to different people. Whatever its affect, it is useful to understand the toll it can have on people, physically and emotionally. This post will focus on triggers found inside the home and how to solve them as well as a comprehensive in depth review of the capabilities Ebac’s Air Putifying Dehumidifiers can have on an asthma sufferer. Know Your Indoor Triggers. Those who have been living with asthma for a while will understand what triggers their asthma and in turn will have learnt to live to avoid them. Sometimes it’s obvious. Sometimes it’s not. The most effective way to protect yourself from triggers in the home is to remove them all together. Some of the most common triggers are: Animals Dust and Dust Mites Mould Outdoot Air Pollution Pet Dander Tobacco Smoke However if removing the trigger is impractical or unwise, minimising exposure to the source is also known to have a considerable contribution to the health of  a person with asthma. Click here for more information about controlling and understanding indoor asthma triggers. When You Need A Dehumidifier. From condensation, damp and mould to asthma, dehumidifiers are used for three things – comfort, health and managing excess moisture. When it comes to health, living in a humid environment tends to create problems in those with asthma because humid air activates nerves in our lungs that narrow and tighten. Humid air makes the air stagnant enough to trap pollutants and allergens like dust and dust mites, mould, mildew, pollen and smoke, all of which can flare up asthma. Using a dehumidifier cleans the air and reduces the number of asthma triggers through removing excess moisture in the air that is warm and humid, protecting and minimising exposure to the growth of allergens, bacteria and pollutants in the home. How Do I Know If Humidity Is Triggering My Asthma? The easiest way to tell if humidity is triggering asthma is to see if symptoms worsen when the weather gets warmer. Some of the most common symptoms are: Breathlessness Coughing Tightness in Chest Wheezing Whatever triggers your asthma, the reality is that it is impossible to get rid of all allergens in the home. When it comes to coping and managing asthma triggers, the best thing you can do is stay on top of your asthma. If you manage your asthma well, your body is in a better position to manage when you come into contact with any asthma triggers. What A Ebac Customer Had To Say. 1.   What Benefits Were You Hoping The Product Would Offer? Moving into our first home we have had a few hurdles to stumble over, one of which was combating the damp in the house which didn’t start to appear for the first couple of months of living there. The second objective of the dehumidifier was to improve the health of Fearn who suffers from asthma and whose condition worsened due to the damp and mould and mildew that was starting to beome an issue. Both objectives of getting the dehumidifier seem to have been successful. Fearn has gone from needing to use her inhaler five times a day – on a good day – to using it just once a day. Breathing has become easier and because of this feels a lot healthier and more peaceful in her own home. The damp and mould growth has also stopped and problem areas have massively subsided, sadly a bit of damage has already been done, but we feel confident that with the Ebac dehumidifier and a bit of cleaning and re-painting we can get rid of the issue for good and any cosmetic work done would last as a result of living in the dry conditions the dehumidifier provides. 2.   Did You Notice An Improvement In Indoor Air Quality? Due to the issues Fearn had with her asthma and the suspected bacteria in the air as a result of the mould, we opted for the bacterial resistance air filter on the back of the machine. Together with the dehumidifier it dies seem to have ade a large difference, both with regards to the general feel of the atmosphere and smell in the house, and the noticable difference in how much healthier it feels. As noted previous, Fearn’s health improved after about six weeks of using the dehumidifier and there was also a noticeable difference in the smell and feel of the air in the house. To be honest, the smell wasn’t really noticeable and I would never have concerned myself with it, however, after using the dehumidifier and noticing the difference, it was obvious we did have a smell that must have come from a few different elements, such as the previous homeowners having dogs, the damp and mould on the walls and the bacteria in the air. 3.   Would You Reccomend The Dehumidifier? I would recommend this product to people who have issues with damp and mould problems, but also to people who find the air in their home could be cleaner. The product dires your home and greatly improves issues with damp and mould, but also serves to improve the ambience, helping with noticeable, or unnoticeable, lingering odours and a fresher feel in the air. Furthermore, if you struggle with respiratory issues it has proven its worth ten times over by helping an asthma sufferer feel more comfortable and improve breathing by removing damp and bacteria from the air.

BodyBest Dehumidifier for Allergies and Asthma ByeMould August 10, 2015 Blog No Comments Mould, damp and dust mites can make your life very difficult and may even result in respiratory problems, allergies and asthmatic symptoms. Mould is found in damp places and reproduces through tiny spores. If you are sensitive to mould you may suffer from the following symptoms: Sneezing / Wheezing Eye irritation Skin irritation Nasal problems Dust mites are also found in damp places such as beds, curtains, rugs and carpets. Though small, dust mites can easily trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. The Solution. A dehumidifier brings down the level of humidity in your house and eradicates problems such as mould and dust mites. In particular look for dehumidifiers with an anti-bacterial filter and ioniser. An anti-bacterial filter pulls bacteria and fungi towards it and kills them upon contact. This results in cleaner air in the house which is beneficial to allergy and asthma sufferers. The air around us contains positive and negative ions. In damp and moist conditions there are more positive ions which makes it harder for people to breathe as these positive ions attach themselves to water. If you suffer from hay fever, bronchial asthma or other respiratory problems you want to limit the amount of positive ions in the air. This can be done with an ioniser. The Dehumidifier. The EcoAir DD122 MK5 Dehumidifier features both an silver nano technology anti-bacterial filter as well as an ioniser which makes it an ideal purchase for allergy and asthma sufferers. Featuring Eco E7 technology the EcoAir DD122 MK5 ensures that running costs are kept at a minimum via a auto toggle function which selects the right dehumidifier setting for the amount of humidity in the air. Furthermore the EcoAir DD122 MK5 Dehumidifier runs at 34dBA at its lowest setting, features a 3D louvre to pinpint air dlow in a particular direction and operates an Overdry Protection system which ensures that the air won’t dry out too much and cause irritations such as cracked lips etc. Read The EcoAir DD122 MK5 Review Here Related posts:.

BodyA Complete Guide on Dehumidifiers Like anything else in this world, humidity is great in the right doses. As soon as moisture levels rise, it creates discomfort in our day-to-day lives, as well as cause various health issues.  Mould on the walls, stale cereals and grains, never dry laundry, asthma attacks – the list of complications goes on and on.  Excess amounts of humidity can also cause problems during construction work when you need the concrete, the glue and so on to dry fast, and they never do.  Here is where a dehumidifier comes in to save the day.  Regardless of the kind you decide to purchase, it will make your life that much easier and healthier.  Let’s discuss the best dehumidifiers UK market has to offer, examine their types, and understand how exactly they can be beneficial to you.  Dehumidifiers Overview. Let’s take a quick glance at dehumidifiers to understand the general idea.  What does a dehumidifier do, you may ask?  Well, a dehumidifier is a device that extracts excess amounts of humidity from the air in a particular area, turning it into condensate.  In other words, it dries the air, making it comfortable for everyone.  There are many different types of the best dehumidifiers with various ways of drying the air. We will discuss them at length further.   Some are meant for installation, while others can be placed in a room. Some have sophisticated features, while others are very basic models with minimal settings.  They also come in various sizes, and it’s up to you to understand whether or not you need one and, if you do, how extensive and elaborate the whole system needs to be.  In many cases, people are unaware that there is a solution. However, in most cases, people don’t even realise they have a problem.  Many of us take it as a give. Well, we do live on an island after all, and naturally, the climate here is very humid, and we need to adjust.  However, it’s not the case in the modern world. To make sure you recognise the problem you have, we have collected some clues to look for and make sure that your life is not affected much by where you live.  Signs You Need A Home Dehumidifier . Let’s see the red flags that point to the fact that you need a dehumidifier.  Mould. Mould is not just a very unpleasant thing to look at and gives the house a very old feel and look, but it can also be very dangerous, as it’s a form of fungus.  The way mould reproduces is through spores that are released in the air and then spread and attach to surfaces with moisture.  Bear in mind, that if you have mould in your house, this means you are breathing that fungus as well, which can be very dangerous for people with respiratory problems, as well as small children. And depending on the kind of mould you have, it could be poisonous and cause serious health issues.  The best home dehumidifier will alleviate these issues, letting you live healthy in a nice home.   Stale Grains And Cereals . How nice it is to wake up in the morning, pour yourself a nice bowl of cereal with milk, and enjoy that crunchy haven with a cup of coffee and the morning newspaper.  Now imagine how disappointing it is when your cereal is stale and becomes soggy right after pouring the milk (unless you are the weirdo that likes soggy cereal).   High humidity doesn’t do your grains any favour when it comes to their long-term storage. They will either go bad or become pretty much inedible.  It’s a real issue in our country, as sealing some food is possible, but mostly not practical.   Your problem can be easily solved even with a cheap dehumidifier, and you can enjoy your crunchy mornings as usual.  Unpleasant Smell. Unpleasant smells usually occur in places where there is moisture build-up. Bathrooms and laundry rooms are great examples of such places in every home. If you don’t have a great ventilation system in your bathroom, or sometimes even if you do, frequent showers and humid air, to begin with, will not let the moisture dry or evaporate quickly, leading to unpleasant smells.  Such smells of humidity can also come from mould.  As a rule, dry areas don’t smell, unless it’s something dirty. Bathrooms, on the other hand, retain moisture purely because of their design and the constant presence of water.  If you place a small dehumidifier here, you will always have dry towels that smell fresh and nice and only the pleasant smell of shampoos, body washes and other products.  Moist Clothes and Laundry . In a very humid climate, clothes can dry for days and still feel wet and moist. In case you don’t own a dryer and are forced to air dry your laundry, it can become a real nightmare.  However, even if you do have a dryer after you hang your clothes in the wardrobe, they can become moist, as the air in your house has a very high humidity level.  Fortunately, there are mini dehumidifiers that you can hang in your closet, as well as larger models that will make sure your clothes get dry fast to provide you with the level of comfort you deserve.  The History of Dehumidifiers. When it comes to the history of this very handy device, we have Americans to thank, as the forefather and inventor of dehumidifiers was an American engineer named Willis Carrier.  In 1902 the first dehumidifier was born to dry the air in one of Brooklyn’s printing houses. Carrier is also the person who invented air conditioning, for which we should thank him every day.  Dehumidifier Types. As with any modern technology, people approached it differently, and it has different processes at its core of the operation. Thus different types of dehumidifiers extract humidity from the air using various concepts and can be used in numerous cases and purposes.  But let’s first understand the process that these machines do – dehumidification.  What is Dehumidification? Dehumidification is a process in which moisture, humidity or water vapour is extracted from the air, simultaneously preserving the original temperature.  It’s important to note that dehumidification does not cool or heat the air but merely removes the excess moisture from it.   How does a dehumidifier work? . So how does the dehumidification process actually work?  Well, here is where we come to the most interesting part of having different technologies, extracting the humidity in various ways, and are designed for multiple uses.  In order to describe how dehumidifiers work, we need to present to you the categories of dehumidifiers and their types, as some consume electricity. In contrast, others need a simple charge and are considered non-electric, like the desiccant dehumidifiers.   Without further adieu, let’s dive right in and see which dehumidifiers work how and where are their best uses.  Categories of Dehumidifiers . Here we present you the four main categories of dehumidifiers and will explain how they work.  Electric or Refrigerant Dehumidifiers Electric or refrigerant dehumidifiers are probably the most popular ones on the market today.  The logic behind their operation is very similar to ACs, which sucks in the air by means of a fan, run the air through the cooling coils, and separate the condensate. Here is where it differs from an AC. A dehumidifier then runs the dry air through the second set of heating coils and only then blows the dry air back into the room. In comparison, the AC blows the cool air.  These kinds of refrigerant dehumidifiers have very high-performance markers in room temperatures; however, their efficiency slowly declines with the temperature decline. The major reason why this occurs is that the cooling coils may form ice on them, hindering the operation. This may happen at temperatures of 18°C and below.  The optimal temperature and relative humidity level that can provide the highest efficiency of the dehumidifier is 20°C and above and 45% humidity.  Any industrial grid and powerful house dehumidifier is a refrigerant one, as only they can provide enough power to effectively dry the air in moderate to big spaces. Also all the dehumidifiers that are meant to be installed in the ventilation systems, regardless of a house or a commercial building, are electric ones.   Desiccant Dehumidifiers  If you have ever bought a camera, computer, shoes and other products, you then have seen the small packs named “silica gel”. And surely, we have all wondered, what is that doing here?  Well, it’s a small pack of absorbent material that is meant to protect the product from any kind of moisture by absorbing it, keeping your camera safe, as moisture is especially dangerous for electronic products.  There are two types of desiccant dehumidifiers – electric and non-electric ones.  Electric ones blow the humid air through a wheel, which is filled with desiccant material. The wheel slowly rotates, absorbing the humidity. The humidity is either drained with a pipe or is collected in a special tank.  These dehumidifiers are best suited for cooler places and are often used in numerous industries to achieve levels of humidity below 35%. If you want to invest in one, it will be best suited for a garage, workshop or basement.  Electric desiccant dehumidifiers are a bit on the higher end when it comes to power consumption, with a marker of about 600-800 W/hour.  On the other hand, the non-electric desiccant dehumidifiers do not use any energy to ensure their operation. The air just passes through their desiccants freely. However, they need to be recharged to heat the gel and make it suitable for absorption again.   This type of small dehumidifier is great for small rooms, closets and other small spaces and perfect for long-term use, as they require minimal supervision and electricity consumption.  Thermoelectric Dehumidifiers These are not very popular home dehumidifiers, as the efficiency is on the lower end and may have problems with ice build-up. On the other hand, these ones are much quieter, as they don’t have a mechanical compressor but rather something that’s called a Peltier heat pump.  You may find this technology in some of the small dehumidifiers.  Ionic Membrane Dehumidifiers  This process uses an SPE or solid polymer electrolyte membrane system to move humidity from sealed spaces that operates on a molecular level and removes the moisture through electrolysis.  This system is perfect for places that are hard to reach and maintain. It is also completely silent and does not require any maintenance whatsoever, and is very reliable in a long-term operation. The downside of this method is that it’s not highly efficient and has a capacity of 58 grams/day dehumidification at most.  Ionic dehumidifiers are usually used in scientific and medical settings to protect equipment or its components from moisture.  The Benefits of Owning a Dehumidifier. Here is a small list of all the obvious benefits that you can get when purchasing and installing the best dehumidifier UK has to offer.  Better Respiration . If you are prone to allergies or have asthma or any other respiratory problems, you will feel so much better and will be able to take a deep breath with a wall-mounted dehumidifier installed in your home.  The reason for such a statement is the fact that humid air is much more dancer than a dry one and contains more particles, which makes it harder to inhale. And those of us who have any respiratory issues are much more affected.  Thus, to be healthier and protect your children from possible allergies that can be caused by dust, dust mites, mould, and much more, a dehumidifier can be an answer.   Dry Clothes. The days of constantly moist clothes and laundry are over! You will no longer need to iron everything one extra time to dry it or wear moist clothes. The air-drying of your laundry will be much easier and quicker.  You will feel the difference as soon as you install any dehumidifier UK market has to offer.  Longevity of Electric Appliances . Believe it or not, but your TV, sound system, and pretty much any electric appliance you own will thank you for installing even a small dehumidifier.  The moisture in the air sits on surfaces, getting into every nook and cranny of your electric appliances, carrying dust and other particles that can significantly lower the lifespan of your devices.   Lower the Electricity Bill . How can an electric appliance lower your electricity bill? When you think about AC working all day and how much more energy it needs to use in order to cool the humid air, you will see that a small, low energy dehumidifier will make a great difference, as the AC will run much less and save you money.  Alongside lowering your spendings, it will prolong the life of every single appliance you own, lowering costs on repairs and replacements.  Shorter Construction Time Frame. An industrial dehumidifier can help a great deal for those who are professional construction workers, or those, that love renovating their house.  A successful construction or renovation requires fast drying of materials like glue, cement, and many other binding agents. It also needs to be dry, as humidity and moisture can prolong the process and, in some cases, even hinder it.  In order to prevent unwanted accidents and a way too long construction period that leads to much higher costs, and an industrial dehumidifier will be a great help and help you scale your projects, giving you an opportunity to take on more work and expand your business.  No Mould . As we have already stated, moisture and humidity are the ideal conditions for mould to grow. And bear in mind that it can form pretty much anywhere – on the walls, ceiling, and it’s not limited only to places around the sink in the kitchen and the bathroom. It can form on your walls of the living room, basement, bedroom and so on.  The list of illnesses caused by mould is very long, and it’s especially dangerous to those of us with pre-existing respiratory issues, asthma, and allergies.  Even a mini dehumidifier placed in the place where you noticed signs of mould development will make a huge difference, and you will feel much better and safer in your own house.  In case you want a more thorough solution, you should install either a wall mounted dehumidifier, or one, placed right in your ventilation system, so have dryer air across the whole house.  No Unpleasant Smells . The smell of moisture in the house is very apparent from the moment you get into the area. It is very unpleasant, but can also cause mould, attract insects and many more problems to the people living there.  The unpleasant smells can be eliminated by using one of many simple desiccant dehumidifier UK has to offer. Place one in each room, and you are all set! They don’t make any noise and won’t cause you any inconvenience.  However, again, if you want a more fundamental solution, install one in your ventilation system, and every room will smell fresh and nice.  No Dust Mites. Dust mites favour humid climates and so small that they can’t be detected with a naked eye – they are only visible under the microscope. They feed off of dead skin cells and make homes in places where they could be found, like the bedding, clothes, rugs and carpets. They are also causes of some allergies, which is a very unwanted side effect of having microscopic uninvited home pets.  A dehumidifier can ease this problem. The drier air is not their favorite environment, thus cleaning all soft surfaces in your house will cause their extinction from your home.  No Sticky Surfaces . High humidity not only makes us sweat and become sticky, but also makes hard surfaces around us sticky.  The table, the TV, especially appliances in the kitchen, which are already exposed to excess amounts of humidity and condensation from cooking, that also contain particles of oil and food, which makes the surfaces that much more stickier.  Here your options are either a desiccant dehumidifier placed in the area, or the one installed in your ventilation system or a wall mounted dehumidifier.   How to choose a Dehumidifier. There are several factors that play a key role in answer to the question of which dehumidifier to choose.  You need to know what’s your problem, what type of dehumidifier you think you need, where you will use it, and how much it will cost you. All that will lead you to the best dehumidifier for your needs, and help you a great deal.  Let’s discuss the factors one by one, so you picture the decision making process from A to Z, when it comes to choosing the best dehumidifier UK market has to offer.  Assess Your Needs. In this stage, you need to understand what kind of problem you are facing and what will be the main use of the dehumidifier.  Above, you can see all the benefits of owning a dehumidifier and all the signs that can clue you in on the fact that you need one.  Depending on where you need to install the dehumidifier comes the choice, as there are many different types, which we have already discussed.  Let’s see some of the most common uses of dehumidifiers and understand which one would work better.  Swimming pool . The swimming pool is a naturally very moist and humid space, as the ventilation is not all that great. Plus, the constant large body of water provides a never-ending source of moisture.   So you don’t have mould and unpleasant smell in the swimming pool area, you need to install either sanding or a wall mount dehumidifier.  Here are the products we think would work best in a swimming pool.  Home. If you want to use the dehumidifier at home, then you have 3 options, either one to install in your ventilation system, that will provide dryer air in the whole house, a portable one, to transport from one room to another, or place in the most humid areas, or a wall mounted one, that will be permanently installed, and will be just like the AC, in one place.  The latter will work best for small apartments and studio apartments, where you don’t have many deviations or square footage to worry about.  The portable dehumidifier will be a great choice for those, who need dehumidification in specific areas of their house, like the bedroom, the bathroom, the kitchen and so on. These ones are simple in use and usually silent. Here are the best home dehumidifiers UK market has to offer.  Basement. This part of the house can be particularly prone to mould girth and high levels of moisture, as it’s very close or outright in the ground.  However, it’s a very important part of the house to keep dry, as it can be seen as the foundation of your house. Moisture attracts all kinds of insects, and you are lucky if it’s just something unpleasant.  It can also be termites that will eat the wood, slowly destroying your home. It could be rodents, like rats, who are very much attracted to still moisture and are to spread many diseases.  Installing a basement dehumidifier will help you solve these issues and keep a clean and safe household.  These are our recommendations for this kind of use.  Single room. Depending on the size of the room and the level of humidity, you can either have a small portable option – like a desiccant dehumidifier, that will just sit there and won’t even notice it’s there. That’s an option for the smaller rooms with not very high levels of humidity.  For bigger and more humid rooms, you can either get a portable dehumidifier with an extraction capacity of about 12 litres per day or a wall mounted dehumidifier that you can turn on and off on a needed basis.   While all the options are valid, the portable floor dehumidifier could be the best option, as it’s versatile in its use – you can take it anywhere with you and move it from the bedroom during the night to the living room during the day.  They are also usually very quiet in operation, have timers and automatic shut off if the condensate tank is full, so you don’t have to worry about them too much.  Here are some of the options we would recommend for the single room dehumidifiers.   Bathroom. The bathroom is probably the most humid area of the house and needs humidifier extraction on a higher level than other places.  While having a great ventilation system is extremely important, placing a bathroom dehumidifier can be a real lifesaver.  It can become especially damp there if you are a big family, taking showers at different times a day, or even more than once a day. It leads to the moisture never even dries on any surface, making it easy for the mould to grow, smells to become apparent and eventually unpleasant. In order to have dry towels and shower curtains you need to invest in a dehumidifier for bathroom, which will make sure the quality of your life goes up, while eliminating the inconveniences and dangers brought forward by the moisture and humidity.  The list of best bathroom dehumidifiers you can find below.  Boat. While you might think that boats are meant to withstand the harsh realities of being on the water 24/7, as they are made for that kind of environment, a dehumidifier will prolong its life, not letting any mould and rust destroy your boat.  Mould and rust are equally dangerous for boats – rust for metal boats, mould for wooden ones. They will eat at the body of the boat, become its part, and eventually gouge a hole in it, compromising its integrity, putting you and anyone on it in danger.  Plus, the excess humidity can be harmful to everything else on the boat, not just its body. Think about all the small cabinets, the equipment, the tools, and anything else you might have there.  In order to prolong your boat’s life and everything else on it for as long as you can, a dehumidifier is a must-have and will be a great asset in your care package.  These models of dehumidifiers are the most suitable to be installed on a boat.   Construction/Renovation. If you are a construction worker, own a construction business, or just decided to make a renovation in your house, one room at a time, you will need an industrial dehumidifier, to make sure that your construction work gets finished fast.  As many materials like glue and concrete need to get dry fast, so they don’t hold the work for too long, a dehumidifier will be a god sent.  Industrial dehumidifiers that we have are big and heavy, but come with wheels and skids, which make them portable and easy to load and unload from a truck. They are also very powerful, with strong fans and can dry up the space really quickly.  They also feature a continuous drainage system, that allows you to have a more hand off approach with them. Just turn them on, clean the exhaust pipe to secure space, and you can come back the next morning to find the space much drier than you left it, moving your work along nicely.  Here are the best industrial dehumidifiers that we can offer you.  Look for the Right Features. There are many different features that most dehumidifiers have, while others are very simple and have just an on and off button if that.  Below are the most important and actually important features you need to pay attention to when deciding which dehumidifier to get for your specific needs.  Extraction Capacity . This is one of the main indicators to look for, as it tells you how many litres of moisture per day the set dehumidifier can extract from the air.  This indicator solely depends on what kind and type of dehumidifier you are getting. This feature ranges from as little as 250 milligrams per day for small desiccant dehumidifiers to 60 liters per day and more for big home, and industrial dehumidifiers.    The kind you get solely depends on your needs. If you are getting a dehumidifier for your bathroom, the 7L-16L one would work perfectly and would be sufficient. If you want a mini dehumidifier to put in your closet, to make sure your clothes stay dry, a tiny desiccant dehumidifier will suffice.  In case what you need is the one to install in your ventilation system, or for construction purposes, then the bigger the dehumidifier, the better, to make sure it takes care of all your needs, without breaking a sweat.  Drainage. This is an important thing to look at, and again, everything depends on your needs. For wall mounted dehumidifiers, ones installed in the ventilation systems, and ones meant for boats and swimming pools, continuous drainage is highly important.  What this means, is that there is a dedicated small pipe that comes out of the dehumidifier unit so the condensation water can be extracted. What this actually means, is that it works much like the AC, where you don’t have to worry about what to do with the condensate.  Most dehumidifiers that we just mentioned do come with such drainage pipes and even offer automated pump out of the condensate.  The smaller, portable dehumidifiers, while coming with the continuous drainage option, usually have tanks dedicated to accumulating the condensate.  These ones need a bit more hands on approach, as need to empty the tank when it’s full. Luckily, these models come with a built-in auto shut off when the tank is full, not to overflow and damage the device itself.  There are also desiccant dehumidifiers that don’t come with a tank or continuous drainage pipe. These ones, as we have explained earlier, contain silica gel, which absorbs the moisture in the room.  These are the smallest dehumidifiers and can only be used in small spaces like a single room, a closet and so on, as their extraction capacity is very low.  Thus, depending on how you are going to use the dehumidifier and where comes the important question of how to drain the condensate. If you are not going to mount the unit permanently or use it for construction purposes, continuous drainage is not critical.  Plus, the condensate tank allows the dehumidifier to be more portable and versatile in use.   Other features. There are surely many different features that one needs to pay attention to when getting a home dehumidifier.  Below are the most common and second on the priority  list of your needs, after the capacity and drainage.  However, this list is not full, as there are numerous other features that some of the dehumidifiers have that can bring more comfort and simplicity to their use. We have decided to focus on the main one, which can be critical to some people and leaving out ones that are added extras and are present in a fraction of dehumidifiers UK market offers.  Safety measures This is a particularly important feature for those who have small children in the house or are often out of their houses.  Different dehumidifiers have different safety features, but the basic ones include the automatic shut off when the tank is full, the filter cleaning indicator, and the anti-spill feature.  These features can come in very handy, when you need to go out of the house and want to come back to a pleasant ambience in the house for time for dinner and bed. Plus, you don’t have to worry about the dehumidifier short-circuiting or damaging your flooring.  Some industrial grid dehumidifiers also include the anti clogging design, which doesn’t allow any dust build up to hinder the dehumidifier’s operation.  Humidistat  This is a great feature allowing you to set the desired humidity levels in the area. The comfortable humidity level for humans ranges from 40-60%. Anything more or less than that, and you will start feeling unease.  Most of the dehumidifiers with a built in humidistat will also turn on and off automatically as soon as the desired humidity levels are achieved.  This feature allows for a more hands-off approach and simplicity in operation.  Portability This is an important feature, if you are going to need the dehumidifier in different places, and for industrial dehumidifiers.  The home dehumidifiers usually come with either two or four wheels, so moving them around is not a pain. Some of the small dehumidifiers have handles on the top or on the side to ease the moving process for you.  The industrial ones also come with wheels and skids for easy transportation from one place to another.  Timer This one is an amazing feature for those trying to keep the levels of humidity steady without a humidistat. You can set the timer, usually between options of 2-4-6-8-and 12 hours, to run the dehumidifier.  In case you want to turn it on and go out, making sure by the time you come the house is nice and cosy, look for the timer feature.  Noise levels Noise levels can be important for those who will use the dehumidifier during their sleep.  Usually, the noise levels are not high for the small dehumidifiers or the home options, but they can be very high for the industrial models.  Keep in mind the noise levels and check them in case that’s an important indicator for you, and you have many appliances working in your home and don’t want to add to the white noise another one.  Air filter  Most home dehumidifiers have air filters to protect the dehumidifier from dust and other particles that are present in the air.  However, some also have ionic filters that purify the air, making it cleaner and healthier in your house.  For those of you with small children and those with allergies and asthma, the better air filtration can be a great asset, as the dehumidifier will clean the air alongside carrying out its main purpose, which is dehumidifying.  Allocate the Budget . The choice of the dehumidifier you will also get highly depends on the budget that you have. Maybe the right and better solution for you would have been a sophisticated model; however, since your funds are limited, all you can get is the simpler one.  That is ok, as having any dehumidifier in your case might be better than having none. If you are faced with the choice of getting a simple or small dehumidifier or not getting any at all, always go with getting one. While you might think that a more sustainable and long-term solution is to save some money and get a fundamental solution to your problem, your house may become very hard to live in or start decaying as mould or rust starts spreading. Also, meanwhile, you wait, the quality of your life might lower, with allergies flaring up, frequent asthma attacks, or having to clean your house more often, and having to iron everything just to dry your laundry.  However, if money is not an issue, then the budget for the dehumidifier should be according to the type of dehumidifier you decided to get, and what kind of dehumidification needs you have.  In case you are not planning on moving anytime soon, then splurge for the full home installation, integrating the best home dehumidifier into the ventilation system. It will keep a nice and comfortable level of humidity in the whole house, letting you have a healthy and comfortable life, free of inconveniences and worries.  Nevertheless, a portable home dehumidifier is also a great option, especially now they are making them very nice and sophisticated, with a huge amount of different settings. There are even models with air filters that will clean your air, along with drying it, timers, high or low capacity ones, and many more that we have already discussed earlier. In case you need something more serious and powerful, like an industrial dehumidifier for construction work and home renovations, that will be a more expensive option and might require a bit more investment on your part.  However, don’t hesitate, as your renovation or construction will be over before you know it with an industrial dehumidifier and save you money in the long run, as you can take on more work since the timeframe of your construction is so short.   Keep your eyes open. As around, if you know anyone using a dehumidifier. Read all the dehumidifier reviews you can get your hands on, and keep an eye on new developments in this area.  You should always do your research, read independent website reviews and third party reviews to be sure you have looked at the product from all angles.  Just like you research what kind of innovations are present in the latest tech products, or research well before getting a photo camera, washing machine, AC, and any other new appliance at home, do your due diligence and get a profound understanding of each type of dehumidifier before you decide to make a purchase.  They are different, and innovations are being rolled out each year, if not more often. Thus, understanding their differences will help you a great deal in choosing which dehumidifier to get.  Also, it will help you not get carried away by chasing the newest models, with a whole bunch of settings you won’t even use if all you need is a simple, small dehumidifier. It will be great for your pocket, and you will get the most value for your money.

BodyDo Dehumidifiers Help With Allergies and Asthma Last updated on July 19th, 2021Excessively high humidity is bad for us and our home. Little do people know that it is also the reason why most of our allergies simply will not go away. So instead of making your home a living nightmare for people with asthma or severe allergy, there is some quick fix. In this post, we'are only going to focus on the most effective way of managing room dampness which is with a good 'ol dehumidifier. Learn how this simple home appliance can help change your life. Dehumidifier Stops Mold and Mildew Growth. By destroying their living habitat through dehumidification. There are very high chances that your allergies are triggered by mold and mildew. Fungus like black mold produces mycotoxins that can even do further harm to your health. So instead of letting yourself exposed to mold, mildew and other microbes, a dehumidifier will come into play. It absorbs all the excess moisture in the air making it impossible for mold to thrive. With low humidity (below 50-55%) environment, you will breathe much healthier as the air is free from irritants.Dehumidifier Will Kill Off Dust Mites. By draining moisture from the air, it will eliminate dust mites in your home. Dust mites are common allergies and asthma triggers found inside the pillow, bedding, and upholstery. It feeds off skin flakes as their food source to reproduce. By giving the microscopic creatures a warm and humid environment, you are essentially allowing them to reproduce at free will. With a dehumidifier, you can set the humidity level between 30-50 percent where is good to breathe in without the pesky dust mites.Dehumidify The Least Common Places i.e. Basement and Crawl Space. Placing a dehumidifier in crawl space will do wonders for your indoor air quality. We all know most allergens travel through airborne, but there are many hidden allergens that emerge from underneath. This is due to the high humidity level with no direct sunlight and poor ventilation. Adding the fact that most centralize or HVAC systems are linked from the basement. Lingering mold, bacteria, and other microbes will circulate through the vents and spread across the room. By reducing the humidity level starting from the lower ground, you will not have to worry about the allergens like mold and germs from moving up.How do tell if an allergy is caused by dampness and poor air quality? The first thing to do is to check your home for mold patches or water stains on walls, ceilings, and floors. Next, check if household items like wood furniture, cabinet, door are suffering from rot, decay or rust on metal parts. Condensation on windows is also one of the signs although it is hard to spot. Lastly, rely on your nose sense. If you feel the surrounding air is stuffy with a stench, musty smell, it must be it.When a person is exposed to the same types of allergens, they might experience different kinds of allergies. This is because our body immune system has different tolerance levels when dealing with allergies. If your home is going through the states that we mentioned, look out for the following allergy symptoms. Stuffy nose Dry cough/ Wheezing Bloodshot eyes/ Watery eyes Sore throat/ Itchy throat Breathing difficulty/ Chest tightness Rashness/ Scaly skin Headache/ Dizziness Chronic fatigue/ Tiredness Forgetfulness/ Poor memory Mood swings Muscle pain/ crampsHumidifier or Dehumidifier For Allergies. Both humidifier and dehumidifier will help to combat allergies. The former increases moisture in the air while the latter reduces moisture in the air. Even though the 2 appliances function the complete opposite, they both will have some role to play. Get a Dehumidifier to reduce nasal congestion, irritation, and inflammation. If you feel your skin is itchy and flaky, consider getting one as well. Get a dehumidifier to relieve symptoms like sinus, cough, headache, red eyes or breathing problem. Another clear sign is the smell of musty mold odors and can also be seen in walls, pipes, or windows.To simplify, if the humidity level drops below 30%, get a humidifier. If the humidity level goes beyond 50%, get a dehumidifier. Keep in mind that can both devices only treat peripheral problems, thus the existing allergens will remain scot-free.ReferencesfreepikDehumidifierDehydration Kingston Kay.

These days, many of us live in smaller homes, apartments, town-houses and generally compact living situations. While living in these close quarters we rarely think about how everyday moisture can be adversely affecting us. Does your home smell musty when you get home after being closed up through the day? Do mould, condensation, pests or forever-drying washing sound familiar? Well, you may have a moisture-problem, but thankfully we have a solution! Moisture comes from many places in the home, from showers to washing the dishes to laundry-drying to our very own bodies. It's everywhere! And without a proper place for it to escape (i.e. good natural ventilation or exhaust fans) it can lead to dangerous consequences like mould growth. In fact, many homes these days (especially some of the older ones that are prevalent in Australia) have limited natural ventilation and common wall fixtures/insulations that can actually keep the moisture in rather than letting it out. Many of us also lack clothes drying machines (causing us to dry our clothes indoors) and lack effective exhaust fans, resulting in excess moisture that has nowhere to go! Dee Carter, Professor of Microbiology at the University of Sydney, notes that mould thrives in damp, poorly ventilated environments. "I think any amount of visible mould is not a good thing. ...Depending on the environment you live in, you could find it growing on your carpet, on your curtains, or in the ceiling tiles. Any substrate really can be a home to mould if there's enough moisture." It's well-documented by industry experts that being around mould, mould-spores and dust-mites on an ongoing basis can be very bad for your health. From sleep problems and general restlessness/fatigue to allergy and asthma flare-ups and assorted respiratory issues to even more severe ongoing mould-related health issues; mould is definitely not something we want to be around! Professor Carter explains that certain species of mould, such as Penicillium, Aspergillus and Cladosporium, can be a particular problem indoors. "These ones can produce a lot of spores and the spores can produce allergies and inflammation. ...They can be inhaled and can cause lung diseases if they get a bit too invasive." Thankfully, a high-quality dehumidifier can be a great solution to reducing moisture levels in these tricky environments. An Ausclimate dehumidifier will actively reduce these moisture levels and keep them down through ongoing maintenance use. They can remove anywhere from 7 litres all the way up to 50 litres of moisture from your home per day! Ausclimate's dehumidifiers will reduce/eliminate: • excess indoor moisture levels & condensation • mould & mildew (existing mould will need to be safely removed - a dehumidifier will prevent it from coming back!) • musty smells • forever-drying washing (simply put your washing on a clothes-horse next to your dehumidifier & it will dry that washing for you!) • pests (cockroaches, ants & other insects thrive in high humidity levels) • health risks (mould spores & dust mites are common triggers for asthma, allergies & other serious respiratory issues) A wide range of leading health experts approve & recommend our products. This array of health field professionals includes Allergy Specialists, Doctors, Pharmacists, Naturopaths, Building Biologists and the Australian National Asthma Council’s Sensitive Choice programme. Most importantly though, they are recommended by you. Our dehumidifiers are currently rated #1 on Australia’s leading independent consumer product review website: ProductReview.com.au Please visit the rest of our website to find out more and if you have any questions, just give us a call. We’ll happily discuss your individual needs and circumstances, helping you to find the right solution for cleaner and healthier air in your home. Always here to help!

Some key steps that are always good to keep in mind include; regular cleaning of your home, fresh air and cleaning the actual air in your home with a quality air purifier. While these steps are great, an issue that people often miss is the moisture levels in the home. Being Healthy Breathing Month, we thought that this would be a great time for a guide all about this issue of moisture in the home and keeping it under control with a quality dehumidifier! Healthy Breathing Month: Home Moisture & Dehumidifiers. Everyday moisture is one of the most common underlying causes for the many of the triggers affecting sufferers of asthma and other respiratory issues. These moisture levels can build up over time due to rainy weather, everyday condensation from showers, your washing, the dishes or even the very presence of people contributes to moisture levels in the air. Without comprehensive ventilation, these moisture levels can lead to conditions conducive to a range of well-known allergens/triggers such as mould, dust mites, cockroaches and a range of other nasties. Regular use of a quality dehumidifier will actually remove this moisture from your air, helping to dry your home and eliminating those moist conditions & resulting triggers. Ausclimate’s range of dehumidifiers will prevent/remove: Mould growth: reduce the moisture levels throughout your home Dust-mite breeding: reduce by drying out your mattress and carpet – they need dampness to breed Dampness: attracts cockroaches, ants and a range of other nasties (cockroach droppings can also be potent allergens) Condensation & water damage: often a problem during those cooler winter months (you’ll be surprised how easy the condensation disappears) Musty smells: a definite sign you have excess moisture (let your dehumidifier get rid of this moisture and help freshen up the rooms) Clothes drying: In addition to this primary purpose, our dehumidifiers also work great as energy efficient clothes dryers. Very handy during dreary weather or for spaces with limited outdoor clothes drying options. More cost effective than the average clothes drying machine & no more shrunken clothes! Picking the right dehumidifier: We offer both dehumidifier technology options; the popular NWT 'Compressor' Dehumidifier range (great for a variety of temperatures), as well as the very effective Ausclimate Cool-Seasons 'Desiccant' Dehumidifier range (great for temperatures consistently 20 degrees and below). The right size: “Size is important”. A key consideration in dehumidifier selection is picking the right size dehumidifier for the job. The easiest measure of the strength of a dehumidifier is the amount of litres of water that it can remove in a day. Our NWT Supreme All Seasons model is our most powerful domestic dehumidifier removing up to 50 LITRES of moisture in just one day!

Thunderstorm asthma is a potent mix of pollen and weather conditions that can trigger severe asthma symptoms in a large number of people over a short period of time. Thunderstorm asthma may occur when a storm strikes on a hot and windy day during pollen season (early October – late December), when there are high levels of pollen in the air combined with a certain type of weather event. When a storm front hits, the pollen grains absorb the moisture and burst into tiny particles. The thunderstorm winds blow the particles down to ground level, where they can be inhaled deep inside the lungs and trigger a serious asthma flare up. Weather conditions like these can also lead to breathing problems being experienced not only by people with asthma but those who have seasonal hay fever. People who wheeze and sneeze with hay fever from pollens during spring are most likely to be affected, even if they have not been diagnosed with asthma before. November 2016: Victorian Thunderstorm Asthma Event. On the evening of Monday 21 November 2016, Victoria experienced severe thunderstorm activity. The thunderstorm was followed by a thunderstorm asthma event, the likes of which in terms of size and severity was unprecedented. It resulted in thousands of people developing breathing difficulties in a very short period of time and placing increased pressure the ambulance service and hospital emergency rooms. Who is most at risk of thunderstorm asthma? Those at increased risk of thunderstorm asthma include people with both asthma and seasonal hay fever, as well as those with past or un-diagnosed asthma. People with seasonal spring hay fever who have never had asthma are also at risk. Thunderstorm asthma can affect people living in metropolitan, regional or rural areas, even if they don’t have a history of asthma. What are the symptoms of asthma and hay fever? People with asthma may experience one or more of the following common symptoms: Wheezing – a high-pitched sound coming from the chest while you are breathing Breathlessness A feeling of tightness in the chest A persistent cough A person’s asthma symptoms can vary over time – sometimes they will have no symptoms, especially when asthma is well-controlled – and symptoms often vary from person to person. People with seasonal hay fever may experience one or more of the following common symptoms: Runny nose Itchy nose Sneezing Itchy, watery eyes Be prepared. The best way to treat thunderstorm asthma is to try and avoid it happening: See your doctor about your hay fever and get a treatment plan sorted out in time for spring If you have asthma or have experienced breathing problems, see your doctor for an asthma and lung health review Take your regular daily asthma preventer medication, if you have been prescribed one Ask your doctor for an up-to-date personal asthma action plan and follow it Know the signs of worsening asthma and the asthma first aid steps Always carry your reliever (e.g. Ventolin or Bricanyl) What to do if a thunderstorm is forecast during pollen season. Always carry your blue reliever puffer with you and check that it is not empty or out-of-date Make sure you take your regular daily asthma preventer and hay fever nasal spray, if you have been prescribed them Close the doors and windows and, unless your air-conditioner has an effective pollen filter, make sure it is off or on recirculation mode Avoid going outside just before and during the thunderstorm Know the signs of worsening asthma and the asthma first aid steps If you start developing any signs of asthma, follow your personal asthma action plan, if you have one, or the asthma first aid steps If your asthma symptoms are rapidly worsening, call 000 and say you are having an asthma attack.

BodyHow to choose an air purifier for Asthma reliefThere are two main types of purifier commonly used for alleviating Asthma symptoms, firstly there are ‘Air Sterilisers’ like the popular Airfree brand, and then there are more commonly known ‘Hepa Filter’ air purifiers, which come in all shapes and sizes. Both types have advantages and disadvantages so we shall explore those in better detail here.The first question to ask yourself is ‘Where do I plan to use my purifier?’Air purifiers can be a huge benefit for allergy sufferers, but they do not work for everyone, so if you are dubious as to whether one will actually help you then often the best place to start is the bedroom. The reason for this is that bedroom is usually a smaller space to purify than other main living areas of the home, the air in there can often be purified perfectly well by a smaller, less expensive machine. Thus giving you the opportunity to test the benefits it may bring for comparatively less outlay. If the unit works for you in the bedroom then it is a safe bet that another one in the main living area will bring its own benefits too.What is the best air purifier for an Asthma sufferer to use in a bedroom?If your allergy is triggered by mould spores, dust mite feces and/or other airborne microorganisms, then there is no doubt that the Airfree range of air sterilisers tend to be the ones that work best for most Asthmatics . This is mostly because unlike Hepa air purifiers which use a filter to trap the allergens, Airfree units actually destroy them. This is important, because the steriliser actually kills off the spores and stops their return. This can take two to three weeks of continuous use before the biggest benefits are felt, because many of these spores have a two to three week incubation period. Also, dust mites feed on mould spores, so by killing off the spores, you are also beginning to starve the dust mites and therefore drastically reducing the amount of dust mite feces in the air.Air sterilisers are also totally silent in use, which is another good reason to choose this type for the bedroom. It is not possible for a Hepa air purifier to be totally silent due to the powerful fan required to suck air through its filter, however some top brands like Swedish manufacturers Blueair are virtually silent so this is not necessarily a problem with all Hepa machines.There is one limiting factor with air sterilisers however. In order for them to be fully effective, they rely upon being used in one room all of the time. The technology inside is not capable of getting up to speed very quickly, and therefore moving it from room to room on a daily basis would render it less effective.Which type of purifier is best for the living room or dining room?When it comes to purifying the air in the more active areas of the home, like the living room, dining room and kitchen etc, then there is no doubt that a Hepa air purifier is the best option. The reason for this is that the air movement in those areas tends to be more unpredictable due to the irregular comings and goings of people and pets and the opening of doors and windows etc. All of which means an ever changing amount of allergens are being disturbed and flowing around much more actively and freely in those areas than they do in a bedroom. This type of area requires an air purifier which is powerful enough to recirculate all of the air in the whole room through its filter as quickly as possible to remove the incoming allergens as quickly as they are arriving. This is where a well chosen Hepa air purifier will be a better option than the slower, meticulous operation of an air steriliser. What if I want to use it in the bedroom at night and then move it to the living room during the day? If you prefer to only buy one air purifier to help with your Asthma and move it around from room to room daily, then look for a Hepa air purifier which is powerful enough to purify the air in the biggest room, and also quiet enough to use in the bedroom at night without interrupting your sleep. The quietest most powerful hepa air purifiers tend to be those manufactured by Swedish air purifier Gurus Blueair. Blueair have a unique patented Hepasilent Technology which is not only quieter and more powerful than most other brands but also filters down to a far smaller particle size than the type of machine you might find on the High Street. For instance, the smallest Blueair , the 203 Classic  recirculates all of the air in a 25 square metre room once every 12 minutes removing particles as small as 0.1 micron. To put in perspective, compare that with something like an Airvax or a Bionaire air purifier found in many High Street department stores which take around 45  minutes to clean the air just once, and even then only filter out larger allergens down to 0.3 microns. Choosing your hepa air purifier to match your room size correctly means you can happily move it around from one room to the next knowing that it is going to provide effective allergen removal almost immediately.In summary then, if you are an Asthma sufferer and plan to buy an air purifier solely for use in your bedroom, then we recommend you choose an Airfree Air Steriliser. Choose one which matches your room size, ie the P40 is for rooms up to 40 cubic metres, the P60 is for rooms up to 60 cubic metres, and so on all the way up to the most powerful P150.For a living room, dining room or kitchen, opt for a Hepa air purifier and be sure to choose one which is powerful enough to recirculate all of the air in your biggest room at least 3-5 times every hour. The entry level Blueair 203 will provide 5 air changes an hour in rooms up to 22 square metres (assuming a normal ceiling height). A good value for money Hepa air purifier for larger rooms up to 45 square metres is the excellent Stadler Form Roger  which includes fully automatic operation and is super quiet too.Finally, if planning to buy just one machine and move it around between bedroom and living area on a daily basis then once again opt for a Hepa air purifier as above, but ensure it is quiet enough not to interrupt you whilst you are sleeping.

If you buy through links on this page, we may earn a small commission. Here’s our process.Humidity is a measure of how much moisture there is in the air. Many people with asthma find that humid weather makes their symptoms worse.People can prevent humidity-related asthma symptoms using a range of strategies, including taking medication, controlling indoor humidity levels, and avoiding exercising in humid conditions.Keep reading to learn how humidity and the weather can affect asthma symptoms and what to do to prevent a flare. We also look at the best and worst weather conditions for asthma.Humidity and asthma. Share on PinterestHumidity can affect asthma symptoms.Humidity refers to how much moisture or water vapor is in the air.People may notice their asthma symptoms get worse on humid days when there is a lot of moisture in the air. This is especially true when exercising in humid conditions.High levels of humidity may play a role in asthma symptoms in a variety of ways.The increased moisture can directly irritate the airways, and humidity can increase the levels of other substances in the air that irritate the bronchial tubes, such as pollen and pollution.High humidity can trigger asthma symptoms, including:coughingwheezingchest tightnessSmall-scale research has looked into how humid weather affects a person’s lungs. The researchers tested airway resistance — a measure of how easy it is to breathe — in six people with asthma and six people without.After experiencing hot, humid air (49°C and 75–80% humidity) for 4 minutes, people with asthma had a 112% increase in airway resistance as opposed to the healthy group that only had a 22% increase in airway resistance.Why does humidity affect asthma?Humidity likely causes asthma symptoms because it triggers bronchoconstriction, which is a narrowing of the airways.Bronchoconstriction may occur because hot, humid air activates C fibers, which are sensory nerve fibers in the airways. Stimulation of C fibers may narrow the airways and stimulate coughing, which makes it difficult to breathe.High humidity levels create the perfect breeding ground for mold and dust mites, which often trigger asthma. Higher levels of humidity may also increase air pollution. For example, ozone, which is an air pollutant, rises when humidity levels increase.Increased levels of humidity also often mean higher temperatures. The highest humidity levels usually occur during the summer months. The combination of heat and humidity can irritate the airways making breathing more difficult.How to manage symptoms. While it is not possible to control the weather and humidity levels outdoors, people can manage humidity-related asthma symptoms by:Staying indoors on humid days. Get the weather report from your local news station and check the humidity levels. When high humidity advisories are in effect, try to stay indoors as much as possible.Recognizing signs of an asthma flare. Recognizing symptoms as soon as they start can prevent an asthma flare from becoming worse. Signs include:coughingwheezingshortness of breathchest tightnessWhen symptoms start, people should follow the asthma action treatment plan they developed with their doctor.Taking fast-acting bronchodilators. Fast-acting bronchodilators relax the muscles in the airways, which opens them up. As the narrowing decreases, breathing becomes easier. Common fast-acting inhalers to treat asthma include albuterol and Xopenex.Prevention. In some cases, people can prevent humidity-related asthma symptoms from developing by:Checking the air quality. Share on PinterestPollutants can cause poor air quality.The air quality index (AQI) indicates the daily level of pollutants, such as smog. Air quality levels vary daily and between locations. The more pollutants in the air, the harder it can be for a person with asthma to breathe.The AQI measures air quality on a scale from 0–500. The higher the number, the worse the air quality. Air quality tends to be worse on hot and humid days. Staying inside when the air quality is poor might prevent asthma symptoms developing.Controling humidity indoors. Humidity does not only develop outdoors. Humidity levels can also rise inside. However, it is possible to control humidity levels indoors.According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is best to keep humidity levels between 30–50%.Lower humidity decreases mold growth, dust mites, and cockroaches, all of which can trigger asthma symptoms.Check indoor humidity levels with a humidistat, available at many hardware or home improvement stores, or online.People can reduce indoor humidity by:opening windows in the bathroom while showering or bathingusing a dehumidifierrunning an air conditionerfixing leaky pipesAvoiding exercising outdoors when humidity levels are high. Exercising outdoors when the weather is warm and humid can lead to airway irritation. However, people can still exercise in a gym, pool, or somewhere else that has air conditioning.Best weather for asthma. There is no optimal weather condition for people with asthma, but many find that consistency in temperatures and conditions is better for symptoms.Allergens and pollutants in the air are two of the most significant factors that affect asthma symptoms. Certain types of weather may increase both air pollution and common allergens.Some people with asthma experience problems in very cold or hot temperatures, which can increase airway irritation. Mild temperatures and low levels of humidity might decrease the risk of airway irritation.Worst weather for asthma. Share on PinterestCold, dry air can trigger asthma symptoms.Not only is humidity a problem for people with asthma, but other weather conditions can also lead to symptoms.The weather conditions most likely to trigger asthma include:Extreme heat: When temperatures climb, pollution levels may also rise, which can trigger asthma symptoms.Cold, dry air: Cold, dry air can irritate the airways and lead to bronchospasm. This often results in common asthma symptoms, including coughing, wheezing, and trouble breathing.Windy conditions: Common allergens, such as pollen, blow around in the wind. Add rain into the mix, and it can lead to an increase in mold spores. Both pollen and mold are common triggers for people with asthma.Rapid changes in temperature: Some people are also sensitive to a quick change in weather conditions, such as heat one day and cold the next.Summary. Although everyone with asthma has different triggers, humidity and asthma symptoms go hand in hand for many people.Increased moisture in the air, especially in high temperatures, can trigger bronchospasm and asthma symptoms. Other weather conditions, such as cold, dry air, can also lead to asthma flares.Monitoring humidity and air quality are helpful to prevent humidity-related asthma symptoms from developing.

BodyHow to improve your indoor air quality to reduce seasonal allergies and asthma attacks Share Share this...FacebookPinterestTwitterLinkedin We are in the period of the year where everything blooms and beautiful days arrive, but this season is not only this, for some people, this implies sneezing, runny nose congestion and other annoying symptoms. These same allergens that cause congestion and tearing, in some people can cause an asthma attack. Allergies and asthma are constantly increasing. Studies conducted at the CNR (National Research Council) in an international paediatric investigation have shown that 6% of children between 6 and 8 are asthmatic and about 25% have presented symptoms. In adults, the percentage of allergic patients rises up to 30-40% with a constant increase from year to year. Allergic asthma is the most common type of asthma. The most common symptoms appear after inhaling these particles called allergens which are pollen, dust mites or moulds. Furthermore, if you are an asthmatic (allergenic or non-allergenic) person, the symptoms usually worsen after inhaling smoke, dust, mites, other fumes or after exercising in cold air. Allergens that are small enough to breathe deeply and end up in the lungs include: Pollen in the air that comes from trees, herbs and weeds Spores and fragments of mould Animal hair Dust Mites Wall-to-wall carpet Mattresses that are not covered by allergies Pillows and sheets that you can’t wash in hot water Soft Toys Wet areas Given that allergies and asthmatics are on the rise is good for people to know and learn how to prevent a possible attack. In fact, asthma control starts at home. Try these simple strategies to improve your indoor air quality to keep seasonal allergies and asthma attack under control: Let the air circulate in your house A simple, quick way to improve the air quality of a home even if it seems simple, is to keep the windows open whenever possible, ensuring you always have good air circulation. Check the humidity A good humidity is between 30% and 50% which manages to prevent the accumulation of mould that grows rapidly in some areas. Thanks to the help of dehumidifiers you will be able to control humidity in your home, managing to defeat condensation and mould. Make sure to vacuum often to remove polluting particles. The best vacuum cleaners collect twice the dust and are much better at preventing particles from leaking into your room. It is especially important to vacuum frequently if you have pets, as pet hair can increase air pollution in your home. Pollen can also stick to your pet’s fur and carry it indoors – not ideal if you’re a hay fever sufferer. Consider buying an Air Purifier You might consider an air purifier, particularly if you have allergies, if you have small children, breathing problems, live near a road or an industrial facility, are often exposed to second-hand smoke or odours that you have no control. If you live near a crowded main road, they can help remove particulates from inside your home or pollen that can sometimes be introduced from the outside when you open and close external doors and windows. Choose one with a HEPA filter if you want to remove particles from the air such as dust, pet hair and smoke. If it is necessary to remove odours or gaseous pollutants, one must be used with an activated carbon filter. A HEPA filter will not filter them, as they only remove the particles. Houseplants Another simple way to ensure good air quality is through the purchase of indoor plants. They produce fresh and clean air in your home with very little maintenance. Remove shoes before entering the house When entering your home, be sure to remove your shoes to avoid introducing chemicals, pollen, dirt and dust inside. If you have a porch it is a good idea to leave your shoes outdoors here or just inside the front door if you don’t have a porch.

BodyBest Dehumidifier for Condensation Damp, Asthma & Allergies in the UK 2020 9th July 202120th October 2020 by James Smythe Sharing is caring! Facebook Twitter With the weather cooling and rain getting progressively worse, many of us will inevitably be suffering from damp within our homes. Types of damp. Rising damp, penetrating damp and condensation are the three most common types of damp for residential properties. Condensation is the most common kind of damp and the one that will increase the most during the winter months. The warm moist air condenses on windows and outside-facing walls which are cool. Rising damp is caused by groundwater moving up through a wall or floor. It's natural for walls and floors to allow a little water in, but it's usually stopped from causing damage by a barrier called a damp-proof course or damp-proof membrane Penetrating damp is caused by water leaking through walls. This type of damp may expand across your walls or ceiling, but this will move horizontally, rather than by travelling up walls (as is the case with rising damp). While a dehumidifier can hold reduce the moisture in your walls from all types of damp, they are not very useful for penetrating or rising damp, and these are problems you will need to fix directly Health issues associated with damp. Damp is a frustrating issue for many UK residents, it doesn't just cause damage, but it promotes the growth of mould. This is especially true for condensation damp where you have a perfect climate of warm moist air for mould to grow. Damp will often bring with it black patches, this is Black mould which produces produce spores – these allow mould to keep reproducing and growing. They are responsible for most health problems caused by damp and mould in the home. These spores are allergens, which means they can cause various allergic reactions. That's why inhaling or touching mould spores can cause health issues or make existing conditions worse. These spores can have a negative effect on everyone, but people with existing respiratory or allergy issues will suffer more. Respiratory issues caused by mould can include trouble breathing, a tight chest, coughing, and wheezing. These symptoms are usually mild but can become chronic if you're exposed to mould spores over a long period of time. Identifying mould risks and monitoring indoor air quality. Dew Point. The higher the humidity within the home, the higher the dew point is, which is the temperature at which air becomes saturated with water. At this point, if it is cooled further, the water will condense into dew. In a room with 60% humidity and air temperature of 20-degrees the dew point will be 12-degreesIf the humidity was increased to 70% the dew point would increase to 14-degreesIf the temperature was reduced to 16-degrees with 70% humidity, the dew point would be 10-degrees.If your room is 20-degrees and you drop the humidity to 50-degrees the dew point goes down to 9-degrees What Is a Good Humidity Level in a House? A good range of indoor humidity for comfort and health is between 30-60% during the cooler months of the year. Mould is likely to occur if the relative humidity indoors is 70% or more for long periods of time. Keeping humidity levels under 50% also helps to minimise or control dust mites. Having humidity levels below 30% can lead to dry skin and nasal passages, increasing the potential for respiratory illnesses. This is also why your mouth and nose dry out in air-conditioned hotels. As you can see from the dew point section, condensation damp will occur at different temperatures based on humidity levels. With many homes having their heating set to 20-degrees, having a humidity level of 60% or higher means there is a relatively good chance of condensation on your windows throughout the cooler months, thanks to our delightful climate. Monitor humidity and indoor air quality. It is not particularly hard to know when you have condensation damp, but you ideally want to prevent it happening in the first place. The simplest solution would be a simple indoor digital thermometer and hygrometer so you can keep an eye on your room being too cold and humid. With a basic understanding of dew points, this can be an effective solution that will cost as little as £8.99. Alternative there are basic smart phone linked monitors for around £13.50. Sale Govee Room Thermometer Hygrometer, Bluetooth Digital Indoor... −£3.00 £11.99 Buy on Amazon If you want to get a little smarter, you can get a hygrometer with dew point monitoring, saving you having to work out the risk level yourself. There are even small smart monitors from Tempo Disc that can be used to track dew point levels throughout the day. Tempo Disc Bluetooth wireless Thermometer, Hygrometer,... Buy on Amazon Then if you want to get a little more serious about your indoor air quality, there is the Airthings Wave Mini which monitors multiple factors of indoor air quality and will also warn you of a health risk. No products found. There are many more indoor air quality monitors at ever-increasing prices, and I will cover these in a future post. Types of dehumidifier  . There are two types of dehumidifier, refrigerant and desiccant. A refrigerant dehumidifier uses much the same process as your fridge at home. The refrigeration process cools a metal plate on to which moisture from the air condenses. These tend to be slower but also use less electricity with power consumption being less than 300w typically. They also work best in warmer rooms and their efficiency will drop off quickly at 18-degrees and below. A desiccant dehumidifier differs from the refrigerant type above. Dessicant dehumidifiers absorb water from the air using a desiccant. These tend to use a lot of electricity, but at the same time, you need to run them for a shorter period of time. These work well at all temperatures, so they are good for using in particularly cold rooms. While desiccant dehumidifiers became popular for a while due to their ability to remove moisture from the air, the general recommendation is to opt for a refrigerant-based model. These will work best for general all-day use to keep your whole home or specific rooms within a specific humidity level. Best dehumidifiers in the UK for 2020.

Alternatives to a Dehumidifier for Condensation Damp. If you have a pervasive issue with damp throughout the house, then there is a good chance it is a ventilation issue. A popular solution to this is a Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) where you have a fan unit which introduces fresh filtered air into the dwelling at a continuous rate, encouraging movement of air from inside to outside. The most popular product that offers this functionality is the Nuaire Drimaster. This sits in your loft and draws air in from the outside, filters it then pushes it into your home. It is generally recommended to get the heated model which will switch on a low energy heater to warm up the air pushes into the home during the colder months.

BodyAre dehumidifiers good for asthma? By Meg Walters published 28 September 21 There's nothing worse than struggling for breath. So, are dehumidifiers good for asthma, or is it just another urban myth? (Image credit: Getty Images/Justin Paget) Jump to: Is a dehumidifier good for asthma? How is a dehumidifier good for asthma? Is humidity or dryness best for asthmatics? What are other methods for managing humidity-induced asthma? The takeaway Whether you're the type of person who loves the heat, or you thrive in colder temperatures, when the air gets humid in the summer, we can all find ourselves struggling to breathe normally. Humidity refers to the amount of moisture in the air. When humidity levels reach over 50%, we tend to suffer from the heat more than usual, as the moisture in the air prevents our sweat, the body's cooling mechanism, from evaporating.Because high humidity can be so uncomfortable, especially in hot temperatures, many families invest in a dehumidifier to reduce the humidity levels in their homes. Dehumidifiers use a fan to essentially suck excess moisture out of the air and release drier air back into the room, thereby rebalancing your home's humidity levels.Related: Best humidifiersWhile most people use dehumidifiers to make their homes feel a little cooler and fresher in the summer, you may be surprised to learn that the machines can also be useful for people with asthma. Today, we'll be discussing how dehumidifiers can help to ease the symptoms of asthma and why, along with some tips on how to use a dehumidifier to breathe a little easier when things get humid.Is a dehumidifier good for asthma?Asthma is a frustrating, persistent condition in which a physical abnormality of the lungs results in sensitivity and occasional breathing difficulties. Environmental triggers and excessive bursts of cardio can cause the common symptoms of an asthma attack, such as a cough, wheezing, chest tightness, and breathlessness.Asthma is a chronic condition that is untreatable, however, doctors can help asthmatic patients manage the condition with education about the common triggers, advice on possible lifestyle changes, and medication. One of the lesser-known tools that can be used in the battle against asthma is a dehumidifier. (Image credit: Getty Images)How is a dehumidifier good for asthma?As Dr. Jessica Shepherd, Chief Medical Officer of Verywell Health, told Live Science, dehumidifiers are not recommended as the only tool to manage asthma, but in certain cases, they can be useful. "Dehumidifiers should not be used to manage asthma, however, yes, they can ease asthma symptoms," she says.As Shepherd explains, dehumidifiers are only useful if high humidity is a factor that is aggravating your asthma.So far, the scientific evidence on the benefits of dehumidifiers for asthma shows that Shepherd's assessment is pretty spot on: while they can help, they are certainly not all that useful during periods of "normal" humidity levels. A 2013 double-blind study from the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews on the effects of mechanical dehumidifiers on asthmatic patients showed that dehumidifiers made no noticeable impact on asthma control.• Related: Dehumidifiers on saleHowever, as the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America notes, high temperatures and thicker air can negatively affect your breathing, which can, in turn, lead to lung irritation and breathing problems. As Shepherd adds, "Heat and humidity create changes in the air which will increase the demand for oxygen. It is also important to monitor the humidity level, especially in the home, with a hygrometer as humidity levels that are over 45% encourage mold, bacteria, and dust mites growth - all of which are common asthma triggers." Because of the effects of humidity on asthma, it follows that a dehumidifier could be a useful tool for people who struggle with asthma attacks during the hotter months. However, there's a reason why dehumidifiers aren't considered a standard tool for managing asthma - dry air can also aggravate the lungs. So, to avoid doing more harm than good, dehumidifiers should only be used to help with asthma when the air is extremely damp.(Image credit: Getty)Is humidity or dryness best for asthmatics?Many doctors actually avoid recommending dehumidifiers to asthmatic patients, simply because they can make the air excessively dry if used at the wrong time.As Dr. David Edwards, FEND Inventor, pioneering aerosol scientist, and Harvard University faculty member, notes, while humid air can be bad for asthmatics, dry air can actually be worse. "At low humidity, the upper airways, which necessarily hydrate inhaled air, can dry out, slowing cilia beat frequency that is critical for clearing inhaled debris, and stressing cells," he says. "Low humidity also promotes breakup of mucus into respiratory droplets, which can carry inhaled contaminants deeper into the airways where they can promote respiratory illness including bronchoconstriction."Edwards points to a peer-reviewed 1977 study from the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology that found that exercise-induced asthma (EIA) occurs more frequently in dry air than in humid air. The study even noted, "High humidity of inspired air could be the reason why EIA is less prevalent in swimming, as compared with other modes of exercise." In other words, it's more important to avoid dryness than humidity as an asthmatic. In fact, a little moisture in the air can actually help to ease the symptoms of asthma. So, it's best to avoid using a dehumidifier in your home unless you're absolutely sure that the internal humidity levels are above the optimal levels of 40-60%. While dry air may be worse for asthma than humid air, both come with their challenges. As Edwards sums up, "It is very important to maintain a moderate humidity in the control of an air space — whether by dehumidifying a very wet room or humidifying a very dry room."What are other methods for managing humidity-induced asthma?While dehumidifiers can certainly help to ease any humidity-induced asthma attacks, they will always work best alongside other medically approved methods for asthma management. As Shepherd notes, these include:Reducing exposure to allergens or irritants that trigger asthma Getting an annual flu shot Weight management Limiting exposure to any allergens including pollen, dust, mold, and pet dander. Avoiding smoking of cigarettes, vapingBreathing exercises such as the Buteyko technique(Image credit: Getty)The takeaway. Asthma is a complicated chronic condition. Managing your symptoms requires a careful plan, and experience of your unique environmental triggers. While dry air is widely known to aggravate asthma, excessive levels of humidity in your home can also lead to irritation or an attack. Take note of the humidity levels in your home when you tend to experience symptoms. If you notice a pattern related to high humidity, it may be a sign that a dehumidifier could be just the thing you need to keep your symptoms in check.

Body10 answers to help you choose the best quiet dehumidifier for your needs July 27, 2021 Posted by LED First Choice 27 Jul Have you been thinking about buying a quiet dehumidifier but you’re unsure on some aspects? This blog is the perfect solution for any queries you have. Throughout this article we will answer some commonly asked question and give you expert advice on what quiet dehumidifier is right for you. Damp patches on a wall or ceiling can be an issue for many people.  This common problem led me to begin researching the most cost effective ways to combat damp and mould problems. The results were clear, a dehumidifier is the easiest and cheapest way to deal with these issues.If you find yourself needing a dehumidifier but don’t have expert knowledge, don’t worry. We have created a simple consumer guide to dehumidifiers, covering everything from what a dehumidifier does to calculating the right size for your home. Frequently asked questions and concerns. 1. What is a dehumidifier? A dehumidifier is an electrical appliance that will help remove moisture from the air in your home. Dehumidifiers are also known to help people who suffer from breathing related illnesses. If people are suffering from asthma or any dust allergies, a dehumidifier will help purify the air in their home making breathing easier. 2. How does a dehumidifier work? A dehumidifier works by inhaling the moisture-filled air through its fans, then processing the air through the refrigerated coils within the machine. Whilst the air is being filtered in the machine, the dehumidifier will extract the moisture and condensation, then release pure air back into the house. The condensation and moisture that is left within the machine is then collected in the water tank. Different dehumidifiers will have different water tanks, for example, a common sized dehumidifier water tank is 2 litres. 3. How do I know if I need a dehumidifier? If you find your home is starting to show signs of damp, this is often a signal that you need a dehumidifier. Another identifying factor is if your allergies are beginning to worsen. If your air related allergies have got worse, and you have recently moved home, this could be a reason you would buy a dehumidifier.There are also visual signs that would lead to buying a dehumidifier. If you see water leaking down the walls in your home, or you find rooms are often muggy, this will mean the air isn’t pure or containing high moisture. Alongside this, if you find that your clothes aren’t drying fast when on the radiators, or if there is a smell of mould, these are also common indicators that you need a dehumidifier. 4. Are there any health benefits to a dehumidifier? Dehumidifier hold numerous health benefits. The pure air that is put out from a dehumidifier will make it easier to breathe in your home. Aside from this, the pure air will be healthier for you to breathe and will have long term health benefits on your lungs.If you struggle with breathing from asthma or other lung related conditions, the health benefits from a good dehumidifier are substantial. No longer will you be unable to breathe in your own home. 5. What size dehumidifier do I need? There isn’t a specific size guide for dehumidifiers. Depending on the size of the room, and the length of operation, different sized tanks will be more beneficial. For example, in a small room, with the dehumidifier in use for short amounts of time, only a small tank will be required. However, in larger rooms with regular use, a larger tank will be more optimal. With that being said, a 2 litre tank will be more than ideal for most dehumidifiers for home use. 6. How to calculate what size dehumidifier you need. To figure out what size dehumidifier you need you must first calculate the size of the area you will be using it in. If you don’t already know the size, simply measure the length and width of the area and multiply those measurements to determine the size in square metres. From here, we can use a base estimate that 2L will be adequate for rooms up to 30sq metres, therefore 60 sq metres will require 4 litres etc.For example: 6m width x 4.5 length = 27 square metres (Sqm). Therefore, a 2L tank that is suggested for a 30sqm room will be ideal for the above example. 7. How long will it take to see the results? A dehumidifier will start working in your home almost instantly. When initially setup, most will begin working once plugged in, however, some older models can take up to 12 hours to start operating. As for long term results, this will vary depending on the size of the room, power of the dehumidifier and how affected the room originally was. 8. Does a dehumidifier cool the room too? No, dehumidifiers are solely used to extract moisture from the air and help dry rooms. With that being said, some air conditioners do have built in dehumidifiers. For example, this air conditioner has a 24 litre dehumidifier built into the machine. This means that you can cool and dry your room at the same time.Our Morris portable air con has a built in dehumidifier to give you a cool room and moisture free air. 9. What other uses does a dehumidifier have? Aside from extracting moisture and drying rooms, dehumidifiers can also be used to dry wet clothing. If you are struggling to dry your clothes outside, place them in a room with a silent dehumidifier. The quiet dehumidifier will begin to draw the moisture out of the clothing, and in almost no time, you will have dry, wrinkle free clothes. 10. Are there any hazards to using a dehumidifier? There are no immediate health hazards to owning and operating a dehumidifier. Most modern dehumidifiers, like this one, have all been designed and built with numerous safety features installed.One safety feature on this dehumidifier is the automatic restart. In the event of a power outage or malfunction, this dehumidifier will automatically restore its default setting and restart once it receives power. This feature makes the machine safe to operate constantly.The Morris 20L silent dehumidifier has all of these safety features alongside a huge 20L per day capacity. Our expert opinion. Ultimately, a dehumidifier has numerous benefits ranging from health to general home improvement. And there are countless models and brands available on the market. With that being said, we believe the Morris 12L dehumidifier with Wi-Fi is the best value for money option available. This dehumidifier has countless functions and ease of life features that will make operating a breeze.The Wi-Fi control option is one feature that sets this dehumidifier apart from the competition. Gone are the days of searching for a remote control to operate your dehumidifier. With the control app, you are able to select between 2 levels of air flow and 3 operating modes. Alongside this, you are also able to control the humidity level in your room and set it up however you prefer. Buy cheap quiet dehumidifier today Check out our range of dehumidifiers here!

BodyIndoor humidity and your family's health By Leanne Koster · 16 Feb 2016 Indoor humidity levels in the home can play an important role in family health, particularly where asthma and/or allergies are present. But do you know what the ideal levels are and how to achieve them? We’ve got the answers for you. What is humidity? Many people associate ‘humid’ with being sticky and uncomfortable on tropical holidays – an example of high outdoor humidity. But too high or low humidity can also affect us. Relative humidity is a way of describing how much humidity (or water vapour) there is in the air, compared to how much there could be. When the temperature is warm, more water vapor can be in the air than when it is cold.  What is healthy humidity? Most people find that a relative humidity between 30 to 60 percent is the most comfortable, with indoor humidity ideally between 30 to 50 percent. Low levels of humidity lead to very dry air which increases the prospect of catching airborne viruses like the flu, possibly due to both their ability to survive longer in dry cool conditions and irritated nasal passages making it easier to catch them. Eczema can be exacerbated and dry skin can also be uncomfortable. Higher humidity in the home creates an environment for two of the most common and undesirable triggers for asthma and allergy – dust mites and mould. Dust mites. Dust mites like moderate temperatures and high humidity (usually above 70 percent). They are found in bedding, flooring, window coverings and furniture. Their poo is the main culprit and is small enough to become airborne when stirred up. Mould. Mould needs long periods of humidity to grow. Houses in tropical areas or with rising damp may be more at risk. Poor ventilation may mean a bathroom or built-in robe can produce mould, even if not in humid areas. So how can I control the humidity in my home? There are a number of ways that you can help control humidity levels in your home, depending on where you live and your climate. Refrigerated air conditioners may reduce absolute humidity when they are cooling and relative humidity when they are heating.Dehumidifiers will extract water from the air and reduce humidity.Most forms of heating will lower relative humidity however it is a good idea to avoid unflued gas heating and open fireplaces.Insulation helps keep your home warm in winter and cool in the summer.Humidifiers may be suitable for very dry climates.Except in very dry areas, an evaporative air-conditioner should not be used as it will increase humidity.Ventilation and improved circulation of air can be a cheap and effective way of reducing humidity.Heat recovery ventilation can also reduce relative humidity.Extraction fans should be used in bathrooms and laundries as hot showers and dryers can dramatically increase relative humidity – these areas are often prone to mould growth. Or it could be as simple as opening the window! If you want to know the relative humidity in your home, a hygrometer will tell you. These are fairly cheap instruments; they are sometimes incorporated with thermometers or clocks. More information.

BodyA Humidifier Or A Dehumidifier For Asthma? What’s The Best? One of the common long-term conditions which affect a lot of people around the world and requires continuous management is asthma. Every year, approximately 160,000 people are being diagnosed with asthma. So which is better for asthma a humidifier or a dehumidifier? If you are suffering from asthma you might be considering having both. A dehumidifier and a humidifier in your house will help you to control the humidity because if the moisture is too low or too high it can trigger asthma attacks. This condition can affect people from different walks of life and of all ages. However, this often begins in childhood even though this can also develop later on in adulthood. But, suffering from asthma can vary from one person to another. No matter what its effect might be, there is no denying that it can take a toll on a person, both emotionally and physically. For this reason, it is important to look for ways and things that can help alleviate your asthma. Contents What is Asthma and What Causes Asthma Attacks. 1 out of 4 Americans suffers from asthma and allergies. Every day, thousands of people experience asthma attacks. Controlling humidity level is a key to relieve and manage asthma symptoms. It is basically a chronic disease, which impacts airways carrying air out and in of the lungs. With this disease, the airways’ inside walls become swollen and sore, which make them sensitive and reactive easily to the irritants. When the airways react, they become much narrower and lungs take in lesser air. It results in wheezing, coughing, difficulty breathing, and tightness of the chest. The symptoms can be persistent at night and early in the morning. Particular environmental substances may trigger asthma attacks. One’s body with asthma interprets such triggers as threats and lungs overreact through triggering asthma attacks. During severe attacks, the airways may close so much that important organs do not get enough oxygen. As a matter of fact, thousands of people die every year due to asthma attacks. Breathing dry, cool air may irritate nerves in the lungs, which lead to inflammation and cause airways to constrict. On the contrary, humidified and warm air can relax the lungs, which allow more air to make its way to the lungs. The humidifiers disperse moisture back into the air, which sooth airways and enable easier breathing. When you are using humidifiers for asthma relief, your unit’s placement is an essential consideration. Place your unit away from the furniture and draperies and ensure that the carpet or floor near the humidifier does not become very damp. Too much humidity could result in bacteria and mold growth, which would only exacerbate asthma and might trigger attacks and could lead to some problems in your house. Identify Your Indoor Triggers. People who have been suffering from asthma for quite some time will understand the triggers for their condition, thus allowing them to avoid these as much as possible. There are instances when the triggers are obvious, but there are also cases when it is not. The best and most effective means to keep yourself protected from triggers around your house is to get rid of them all together. A few of the most usual triggers are the following: Dust mites and dust Animals Mold Tobacco smoke Pet Dander Outdoor air pollution But, if it is unwise or impractical to remove the trigger, reducing exposure to the sources is also proven to have a significant contribution to the overall health of the person suffering from asthma. How Will You Know if Humidity Triggers Your Asthma? The simplest way to determine if your asthma is triggered by humidity is to check if the symptoms get worse every time the weather becomes warmer. Several of the common symptoms include: Coughing Breathlessness Wheezing Tightness in chest No matter what triggers your asthma attack, the truth is that it can be very difficult to eliminate all the allergens in your home. If you want to manage and cope with your asthma triggers, what you can do is to always be a step ahead of your asthma. Through managing your asthma properly, your body will be in a much better position to deal with asthma triggers every time you come into contact with them. Dehumidifiers VS Humidifiers. There is a debate over whether humidifiers are ideal for asthma. Increased level of humidity can ease breathing, particularly during cold or some respiratory infection. Also, increased moisture in the air may result in increased growth of various allergens including dust mites that could worsen or trigger allergy symptoms. If humidifiers are not cleaned properly, it can be a breeding ground for bacteria and mold that could be released into the air and trigger asthma attacks. Evaporators or steam vaporizers can slightly release airborne allergens compared to cool-mist humidifiers, yet even the steam vaporizers need cleaning on a regular basis. While humidifiers might be a great investment during winter days or in dry climates, dehumidifiers may also come handy during hot months or in humid climates. Dehumidifiers basically dry the air and would keep the humidity levels indoor at a safe and comfortable level. Dehumidifiers also collect the excess moisture from the air and reduce humidity levels. No matter what you choose, whether you want a dehumidifier or humidifier, the perfect range of humidity for your house is between thirty and fifty percent. If you have a humidity level that is comfortable, utilize the humidistat feature when keeping humidity at a constant and comfortable level. If the unit does not have a humidistat, you may measure humidity with a hygrometer, which is a device measuring the moisture in the air. Is A Humidifier Or Dehumidifier Good For Asthma? If you are one of the many people who suffer from asthma, you might have considered buying a dehumidifier or humidifier to help relieve some of the annoying and debilitating symptoms. Asthma symptoms might be triggered by humidity that’s too low or too high. Depending on your indoor air quality, a humidifier or a dehumidifier may help stabilize the humidity in the air and improve the symptoms of allergy. When to Use a Humidifier. Asthma flare-ups may happen because of dry air. It irritates air passages and the nerves in the lungs, which lead to inflammation that might cause airway restrictions that are associated with asthma. Humidifiers basically add a moisture level in the air until the humidity reaches a healthier level. Breathing moist air might help soothe the airways and reduce the chances of asthma attacks. The level of humidity in your house must average around forty to fifty percent. If the humidity levels of your home are low, humidifiers might be required. Humidifier – Why It Works? According to experts, breathing dry and cool air may sometimes irritate the nerves in the lungs that lead to inflammation as well as causes airways to constrict. The humidifiers for your house disperse moisture in the air, so you will be breathing moist air, which can lead to asthma attacks. Placement of humidifiers is crucial when using one, particularly if you’re trying to control your asthma. Make sure to place your unit away from the furniture and draperies. Aside from that, make sure to keep an eye on the carpet’s dampness or flooring near humidifiers. If such areas become very damp, it might cause mold and bacteria to grow that would make it much harder for you to breathe. Tips to Use Humidifiers Effectively. There are debates over whether or not humidifiers are great for those who have asthma since the levels of moisture in a home might get too high and it makes a good environment for the dust mites to grow and live. Aside from that, once not maintained and cleaned on a regular basis, humidifiers can be a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. Therefore, it’s essential to use a humidifier properly. It is crucial to clean your humidifier on a regular basis so bacteria and mold won’t develop that can be dangerous to one’s health. Use water with low content of minerals to prevent the buildup of minerals. If you plan to store your unit for a long period of time, make sure that it’s dry before storing it and clean it properly before using it again. When Do You Need a Dehumidifier for Your Asthma? Moisture in the air helps people with asthma breathe much easier. Yet, too much humidity might also be dangerous for your health. It’s where dehumidifiers come in. High levels of humidity create an environment perfect for mold and it can cause asthma attacks. Dehumidifiers work to absorb too much moisture in the air inside your home and decrease the amount of the surfaces that may harbor the growth of mold. From mold to dampness, condensation, to asthma, dehumidifiers can be very helpful for three things, namely health, managing excess moisture, and comfort. As far as health is concerned, living within a humid environment has the tendency to cause issues in people who have asthma since humid air can activate the nerves in the lungs that tighten and narrow. Humid air can make the air stagnant to the point that it will trap allergens and pollutants such as dust mites and dust, mildew, mold, smoke, and pollen, all of which can trigger an asthma attack. The use of a dehumidifier can help clean the air and reduce the number of asthma triggers by getting rid of excess moisture in the air which is humid and warm, minimizing and protecting exposure to the growth of bacteria, pollutants, and allergens inside the home. Controlling the humidity levels in your home is a good way to avoid asthma flare-ups. Know the countless benefits of using dehumidifiers and humidifiers and why you should get one now.

Does it trigger flare-ups in your allergy symptoms or breathing problems? Marc Meth, M.D., an allergist based in Los Angeles and is part of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, tells Verywell Health that dust mites and mold are the most common indoor allergies and they thrive in conditions of high humidity levels. Dr. Meth says a dehumidifier can significantly “inhibit dust mite and mold growths” which will help people with allergies and asthma breathe easier and live healthier. Dehumidifiers are a great solution to balancing your air quality. These machines keep your home, clothes, and furniture fresh and dry. However, Dr. Meth warns dehumidifiers aren’t for everyone. They can be harmful to people with very dry skin who need more moisture in the air. “I recommend that people should keep humidity levels lower than 50% and that people clean out their dehumidifiers regularly to prevent mildew and bacteria growth,” Dr. Meth advises.  Our experts researched loads of dehumidifiers evaluating the size, efficiency, noise, energy consumption, water reservoir capacity, and price. We selected dehumidifiers with the best of these features as well as the severity of humidity and room size. Before you decide which is the best for you, check out our seven favorite humidifiers of 2021.

If your home is severely moist and muggy, it is best to use a dehumidifier that can remove a higher quantity of water from the atmosphere a day and has a large water container, so you don’t have to fret about constantly emptying it out. If your home’s air conditions aren’t as severe, it is better to seek a miniature dehumidifier to prevent drying out your home. Space . Basements, attics, garages, and other large spaces will all require bigger dehumidifiers. There are plenty of options on the market that remove enough moisture from the air without taking up too much space in your home. Noise . Many complain that dehumidifiers are noisy and are constantly whirring due to their compressors and fans. If noise is a breaking point for you, try units that are designed to be soundless. Frequently Asked Questions. What does a dehumidifier do? A dehumidifier controls or decreases the amount of humidity or moisture in the room. This helps keep your home, clothes, and furniture dry. Dehumidifiers also improve air quality by decreasing humidity and preventing mold, mildew, dust mites, and other allergens. This helps with allergies, asthma, or other breathing problems.  When should you use a dehumidifier? You can use a dehumidifier when you want to control the humidity or mugginess in your home. Extra moisture in the air may be apparent by condensation in windows, mold on window trims, a sticky feeling, or musty odors. Dehumidifiers are especially helpful when your home has a humidity level of 50% or more. You can test humidity with a hygrometer you can buy at home improvement stores.  What is the difference between a humidifier and a dehumidifier? Humidifiers add moisture to the air. Dry air pulls moisture from the skin and humidifiers help hydrate dry skin, hair, nasal passages, or lips. Dehumidifiers decrease moisture in the air to keep the house from feeling sticky or humid and are used to help fight allergens. Will a dehumidifier kill mold? Dehumidifiers do not kill mold that is already there. However, they prevent mold, mildew, dust, and allergens that thrive in humid environments. The Cleveland Clinic recommends keeping humidity levels lower than 50% to reduce your risk of mold exposure. It’s also a good idea to clean your dehumidifiers regularly to prevent mildew and bacteria growth. Why Trust Verywell Health .

BodyBreathe Easy: Why Controlling Humidity Can Help Reduce Asthma Symptoms Admin on January 9, 2015   0 Comments One in four Americans suffer from allergies and asthma, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each day, an estimated 30,000 people have an asthma attack, with approximately 5,000 visiting the emergency room as a result. Controlling humidity levels is one key to managing and relieving asthma symptoms. Asthma is a chronic disease that impacts the airways carrying air in and out of the lungs. With asthma, the inside walls of the airways become sore and swollen, making them sensitive and easily reactive to irritants. When airways react, they become narrower and the lungs take in less air. This results in coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and difficulty breathing. Symptoms can be especially persistent early in the morning and at night. Certain environmental substances can trigger an asthma attack. The body of someone with asthma interprets these triggers as threats, and the lungs overreact by triggering an asthma attack. During a severe attack, airways can close so much that vital organs don’t get enough oxygen. In fact, approximately 4,000 people die annually from asthma attacks. Breathing cool, dry air can irritate nerves in the lungs, leading to inflammation and causing airways to constrict. On the other hand, warm, humidified air can relax lungs, allowing more air to make its way into the lungs. Humidifiers disperse moisture back into the air, helping sooth airways and allow for easier breathing. When using a humidifier for asthma relief, the placement of your unit is an important consideration. Place the unit away from draperies and furniture, and make sure the floor or carpet near the humidifier doesn’t become too damp. Excessive levels of humidity can lead to mold and bacteria growth, which will only exacerbate asthma and may trigger an attack, as well as potentially lead to other problems in your home. Humidifiers vs. Dehumidifiers. There’s some debate over whether humidifiers are good for asthma. Increased humidity may ease breathing, especially during a cold or other respiratory infection. At the same time, increased moisture in the air can lead to the increased growth of allergens, such as dust mites, which can trigger or worsen allergy symptoms. If a humidifier isn’t properly cleaned, it can become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria, which can then be released into the air and trigger an asthma attack. Steam vaporizers or evaporators may be slightly less likely to release airborne allergens than cool-mist humidifiers; however, even steam vaporizers require regular cleaning. While a humidifier may be a good investment in winter months or in drier climates, air conditioners or dehumidifiers can be equally important during hot, summer months or in more humid climates. Air conditioners dry the air and keep indoor humidity levels at a comfortable and safe level. Dehumidifiers collect excess moisture from the air and lower humidity levels. Regardless of whether you choose a humidifier or dehumidifier, the ideal humidity range for your home is between 30 and 50 percent. Once you have a humidity level that’s comfortable, use the humidistat feature to keep the humidity at a constant, comfortable level. If your unit doesn’t have a humidistat, you can measure humidity with a hygrometer, a device that measures the amount of moisture in the air. Care and Cleaning. Keeping a humidifier clean is important for asthma sufferers. Mold spores, bacteria or other allergens released into the air along with the moisture can trigger an asthma attack. In addition to regular and thorough cleaning, it’s important not to allow stagnant water to sit in the tank for an extended time. Change water daily, especially if you’re using a cool mist or ultrasonic humidifier. Use distilled water or water with a low mineral content to prevent mineral buildup, which can promote bacterial growth. Clean humidifiers every three days using a 3-percent hydrogen-peroxide solution. Be sure to thoroughly rinse the tank after cleaning to keep harmful chemicals from becoming airborne when the humidifier is in use. Use demineralization filters or cartridges if recommended by the manufacturer, and change filters regularly. When storing a humidifier for an extended period of time, make sure it’s thoroughly cleaned and dry. With careful attention to cleaning and care, a humidifier can be an important part of asthma maintenance. About Our Team.

BodyUsing A Humidifier Or Dehumidifier For Asthma - Pros And Cons Posted by Sunny Sachdeva on 8/29/2020 to In the United States, Asthma is a respiratory condition that affects one in thirteen people or around 25 million Americans. Asthma is also more prevalent in women than men, and it’s the leading chronic disease in children. As you can appreciate, asthma is quite a common medical condition, and most people with it experience asthma attacks at least once in their lives. At home, people that have asthma can find their conditions get better (or worse) depending on humidity levels. Why (and how) do humidity levels impact asthma? Anyone with asthma, irrespective of severity, has to be mindful of the humidity levels in their homes. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the ideal humidity level you should have in your home is between 30% and 50%. Anything outside of those ranges can potentially cause problems, particularly if you’re asthmatic. Having the right humidity levels in your home is so crucial. High humidity can increase mold growth, plus it can increase dust mite and cockroach activity. Those three factors alone are proven to trigger asthma symptoms. When you have low humidity levels in your home, you significantly decrease the chances of having allergic reactions and asthma attacks. But if they are too low, they could also cause breathing problems. People who have asthma often find that having a humidifier or dehumidifier in their homes helps ease their symptoms. Here’s a detailed look at both options and their pros and cons to help you make an informed decision. Humidifiers. Do you live in a location where humidity levels are quite low? And do you find that your asthma often symptoms worsen, especially during the colder months of the year? If the answer to both questions is yes, it could make sense to invest in a humidifier for asthma. As the name suggests, humidifiers help boost humidity levels in your home. They are portable units, so you can move yours into any room at your leisure. Humidifiers are ideal if you live in a dry climate all year round, such as California or Texas. You can also use a humidifier for asthma in your office, especially if the air conditioning controls are pre-set at really low levels. Pros of humidifiers. The obvious benefit of a humidifier is you can ensure your home has a comfortable minimum humidity level. Buying a humidifier for asthma will also lessen the likelihood of airborne viruses thriving in your home.If you buy a humidifier for asthma, another advantage that you will enjoy is having lower heating costs during winter. Your body will feel warmer, and so you’ll make noticeable savings on your heating bills.Air humidifiers come with a range of options depending on the model that you buy. For instance, some models have set pre-set controls you select, while others allow you to set desired humidity levels. Cons of humidifiers. Of course, there are some downsides you need to consider when opting for a humidifier for asthma. For a start, you need to clean them regularly - typically, every three days or so. Not adhering to the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions could exasperate your asthma.There’s also the noise factor to consider. The cheaper models on the market are usually the loudest, and it could cause you sleepless nights if you operate them when you go to bed. Ultrasonic models tend to be the quietest humidifiers on the market.To use a humidifier, you have to fill it up with water regularly. Sometimes, using water from your faucet can cause a “white dust” mist to emit from the machine. However, the issue is resolvable by using distilled water.When choosing a humidifier, you should ideally opt for a self-regulated model. Otherwise, it could produce too much moist air. It also makes sense to choose a model that has a timer for health and efficiency reasons. Dehumidifiers. What happens if you live and work somewhere with medium to high humidity levels all year round? Surprisingly, Alaska is the state with the highest humidity levels in the United States. Other mostly-humid states include Florida, Louisiana, and Alabama. To keep humidity levels down, you would need to use one or more dehumidifiers in your home or place of work. How do dehumidifiers work? In a nutshell, they remove water from the air by drawing it in, collecting it in a tank, and releasing processed air back in the room. Most air conditioning systems, such as the portable and built-in types, dehumidify the air but cost a lot of money to install and operate. Dehumidifiers provide a cost-effective solution to that problem. Pros of dehumidifiers. Dehumidifiers are effective at removing moisture from the air and easing the symptoms that people with asthma experience in their lives. They’re also good at increasing comfort levels, making it easier to breathe and sleep.Another advantage of dehumidifiers is they significantly lower the likelihood of mold growth in your home or office. As you know, mold can make a person’s asthma symptoms worse, especially during colder periods of the year.The majority of dehumidifiers have a range of useful built-in features. For instance, digital readouts provide you with real-time humidity level information. They also come with safety features such as an automatic shut-off when the water collector is full.And, as with humidifiers, many dehumidifiers allow you to set a timer that turns the machine off when a desired time or humidity level gets reached. One final advantage is you can buy dehumidifiers in a variety of sizes to suit your needs. Cons of dehumidifiers. As with humidifiers, there are some disadvantages to buying and using dehumidifiers. One of the biggest downsides is the cost of buying a dehumidifier. Mid-range models are typically just as expensive as portable air conditioners.Dehumidifiers can also increase your electricity costs substantially if you use them for most of the day and evening.Another disadvantage of using dehumidifiers is you’ll have to put up with the noise. Some units can be as loud as 50 decibels. That’s almost as loud as using a vacuum cleaner or the sound of moderate rainfall.Last but not least, you need to regularly empty the collector tank in a dehumidifier. Most machines will alert you when the tank is full and will stop operating until you’ve drained the water. Conclusion. You should consider a humidifier for asthma if you live in a climate where the humidity levels are mostly low all year round. And, if you live in a humid area, a dehumidifier is a good option for your needs. Whichever type you get, make sure the machine is efficient, has a range of safety features, and won’t keep you awake if you operate it at night. Previous Post Next Post Categories.

Takeaways
Body15 Reasons Why You Need a Dehumidifier In Your Home James White on September 16, 2015   8 Comments Quick Overview on Dehumidifiers. You’ve made the first step to living in a healthier home—recognizing that your living space is having humidity issues. Household dehumidifiers are useful appliances that help maintain preferred, and healthy, humidity levels within your space. They do so by working to cleanse the air of excess moisture and prevent mold, bacteria and other particulates from growing, all of which could lead to a variety of health issues in the long-run. Click Here to View All Home Dehumidifiers But where does one even begin to search for a home dehumidifier that fits their needs? Worry no more, our buying guide will provide you with adequate information and essential tips to help figure which kind of dehumidifier best suits your needs. To help you accomplish this, let’s take a look at what you should consider when buying a dehumidifier, and whether or not you even need one. You know you need a dehumidifier if:. Moist or wet stains are present on walls or ceiling. Room feels unpleasantly stuffy. Windows are covered with condensation. Musty odors exist. Mold is visible. Excess moisture. Things to Consider While Shopping for a Dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers are effective units that come with many benefits for your space, and most importantly, yourself. They eliminate potentially dangerous variables that can affect your home, family and even your beloved pets. Before making any kind of purchase, research should be done to find a dehumidifier that works best for you. Here are several things that you should keep in mind when you are shopping around for a new dehumidifier for your home. 1. Mold Prevention. Every homeowner’s worst nightmare, mold. Mold is a fungal species that causes natural materials to breakdown through a process known as biodegradation. Mold can become dangerous in large quantities, putting household residents’ health at risk. Symptoms of mold allergies can include: eye and throat irritation, skin rashes, sneezing, itchy throat and/or coughing, not to mention help contribute to asthma attacks. Moist, damp air is the ideal environment for mold to flourish (50-65% humidity), and a dehumidifier can remove the surplus moisture while preventing new mold from growing. If you or anybody in your home suffers from frequent asthma attacks or if you see mold growing in various places, then you should strongly consider getting a dehumidifier for your home. 2. Improve Air Quality. The quality of air in your home is not only measured in the amount of toxins that you may or may not be breathing in, but also by the humidity levels of the air itself. While there’s no denying that an air purifier is the most effective way to cleanse the air of potentially harmful substances, a dehumidifier does indeed play an important role in improving your indoor air quality. In fact, no matter how many houseplants you have in your home or air purifiers running, it is impossible to keep your quality of air in your home at a healthy level if there is too much humidity. 3. Helps Eliminate Dust Mites. As we discussed above, dehumidifiers play an intricate role in improving the overall indoor air quality within your home. Not only by removing excessive levels of humidity, but also by eliminating dust mites — who may be the culprits for why you’ve been wheezing so much recently. Photo Credit: Wikimedia Household dust mites are a common cause for many allergy-related symptoms and asthma, and they thrive in humid, warm climates. Dehumidifiers help keep the overall humidity in your house at an optimal level, therefore helping eliminate the environment in which dust mites survive in. While you’ll likely never completely rid your home of these tiny mites, there are plenty of things you can do to keep them at bay. By creating an unfavorable environment for them to live in will go a long way in preventing the possible health-related ailments that they may cause. 4. Protects Your Home. High humidity levels can destroy your home’s structural integrity. Over time, moisture can affect the wood in your home, including the support beams, causing them to warp, crack or even split. Mold can start to grow in the wall. Metal fittings may start to rust. All because there is too much humidity in your home. A dehumidifier is an easy way to prevent your home from slowly deteriorating, while simultaneously creating a healthier living environment for your family. 5. Helps You Feel Comfortable. When moisture is present in your space, temperatures may feel warmer than they actually are. By removing moisture from the air, you will feel more comfortable without having to crank up your air conditioner. In fact, you could probably raise the temperature on your thermostat and make your home more energy-efficient, as a result. This is especially true throughout the warmest times of the year. 6. Can Be Used In Any Room . Whether you have an extremely moist basement or a humid living room, there is a dehumidifier designed specifically for that space. In fact, many popular home dehumidifiers can be used within all of these spaces in your home, to help ensure a dry environment. Some dehumidifiers offer a feature called “low temperature operation” that allows it to be used in climates as cool as -4°F, making these appliances perfect for year-round use. Many home dehumidifiers come equipped with casters for convenient mobility, enabling the unit to be easily transported from room to room, providing treatment whenever and wherever it’s needed. 7. Different Sizes Available. Before making any kind of purchase, it’s important to figure out which size dehumidifier is properly suited for your home. Dehumidifiers remove moisture in terms of pint capacity, emphasizing each unit’s reservoir size. Small Rooms:. For lightly damp or small rooms, such as bathrooms or laundry rooms, a dehumidifier with a capacity of 25-40 pints is recommended for that size space. Mid-Sized Rooms:. For mid-sized rooms, such as bedrooms, or rooms with excessive levels of moisture, a dehumidifier with a 40-59 pint capacity is recommended. Large Rooms:. For larger rooms, including living rooms or other open living-spaces, a dehumidifier with a 60+ pint-capacity is recommended. Basements, Garages & Crawlspaces:. If your garage, basement or crawlspace needs to be treated as well, a 60+ pint sized unit is generally recommended. However, there are specially-designed units designated for these areas. We would recommend using one of those, if possible, especially if the device will be used in that area for prolonged use. The above room sizes typically cover the standard home, however, if you require an even larger unit, then you may want to look into getting a commercial and industrial-grade dehumidifiers. Units rated with a capacity of 70 pints or less are ideal for residential use, while larger-sized dehumidifiers are perfect for commercial and industrial settings, such as warehouses, factories and server rooms. However, keep in mind that a larger size dehumidifier isn’t necessarily better; the performance of a dehumidifier is affected by the size and humidity levels in the space being treated. 8. Many Budget-Friendly Options. Before you rush out and spend a lot of money on a dehumidifier, it’s important to research the different types and brands available to you, as well as what your intentions are once you buy the appliance. Once you know this, it will be significantly easier to find the right dehumidifier for your home or situation. Larger capacity units are generally more expensive, because of their ability to treat vast spaces. Additionally, the same can be said about the brand you are buying. EdgeStar and Danby have a well-known and deeply-rooted reputation for creating quality products that last for many years. You may pay a little more upfront, but you’ll get more from the unit over time. Depending on your intent with the appliance, the price can vary widely. If you have a specific budget in mind, narrowing down your choices based on a dehumidifier’s features will not only help find an appliance in your price range, but also to find a unit designed for your objective. This is why it’s important to know what and where you plan on using the device. 9. Portable & Convenient. Having a dehumidifier with mobile capabilities can be convenient, especially for long-term use. Nowadays, it’s pretty much standard that a dehumidifier will come with casters and carrying handles, but if not, this is a must-have feature we would recommend. Not only will it make it easier to use on a daily basis, but it will make it easier for you to move from one area of your home to another. This will allow you to buy one unit and use it strategically in your home, instead of buying multiple units designated for multiple areas in your home. 10. Energy Efficiency Helps You Save Money. When a unit has an Energy Star rating it means the dehumidifier is able to operate in an energy-conscious manner to help you save energy, which means you are able to cut down on your utility costs. Not only will this help create a healthier environment for you and your family, but you can save money in the process. In order for a product to become Energy Star Rated, it must meet strict guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency. And this is no easy feat. 11. Maintenance is Easy & Quick. Look for a dehumidifiers with a top-loading filter. This innovative feature allows for very simple and quick maintenance. While many dehumidifiers require the internal reservoir to be taken out in order to change or clean the filter, units with this feature have a convenient compartment on top which provides immediate access to the filter. This cuts down on time spent trying to open the device and prevents an unneeded mess from occurring. And trust me, removing and emptying an internal reservoir will lead to an unwanted mess at some point. 12. Automatic Shut-Off Saves You Time & Energy. Designed to further cut down on energy costs, dehumidifiers with an automatic shut-off feature use intelligent software to actively monitor your space’s climate and will shut down once the desired humidity level has been reached. In addition, units with this feature will also shut down once the internal reservoir is full. Another must-have feature when it comes to buying a dehumidifier for your home, automatic shut-off will ensure that the device only operates at their best ability. 13. Auto Defrost Saves You Time. Automatic defrosting dehumidifiers are convenient and save time when it comes to maintenance. The automatic defrost feature is a must-have feature for anybody that plans to use their device in colder climates. Autdo defrost allows you to operate your unit without the worry of frost damage. While most dehumidifiers can function in low temperature spaces, appliances designed for the cold can operate without the danger of the units’ coils icing over. 14. Restarts Automatically. In times of power outages—or any time your electricity suddenly shuts off—the automatic restart feature is a godsend. This feature ensures that your dehumidifier will continue to operate at its previously configured settings as soon as the power has been restored, making sure your space continues to receive the dehumidifying treatment it needs. This feature is a must-have for people who travel/work a lot and are home less frequently. 15. Drains Continuously. Although some dehumidifiers may have a large reservoir capacity, allowing for continuous drainage can reduce user maintenance, as well as provide continual dehumidification for your space. Some units come equipped with drainage hoses that connect to the internal reservoir and utilize gravity to feed built-up moisture to the nearest drain. Gravity drains have the ability to only drain liquid vertically, so if you’re in need of a more powerful option then looking into a condensate pump may be beneficial. Condensate pumps are great for locations with diverse elevation and work to pump the liquid vertically and horizontally to the nearest drain. Takeaways.
