The dehumidifier condenses the moisture in the air into water droplets according to the principle of a heat exchanger, and then discharges it outside the machine to achieve a dehumidifying effect. Because the dehumidifier emits warm air, the ambient temperature will rise slightly, but the temperature difference is not obvious. Therefore, it is more suitable for humid seasons other than midsummer, and the power consumption is relatively saved. It can effectively improve the humid living and production environment to achieve the ideal state, and can remove mold brought by the humid environment. The dehumidifier can remove humid moisture and suspended particles through operation, making the air dry and fresh. It is widely used in all aspects of production and life, creating a comfortable, dry and quiet modern living space for users. The following are frequently asked questions (FAQ) about using the dehumidifier in our daily operation and production.
1. Why should the dehumidifier be placed for a period before operation?
Because the refrigerant in the compressor may move during transportation, if the compressor starts immediately, it will not work properly. Even if the machine can run normally, the dehumidification efficiency will be low and the noise will be high. The dehumidifier is kept stationary for 4~6 hours to ensure that the dehumidifier can be used normally after the refrigerant in the compressor returns.
2. Where should I place a dehumidifier?
Generally speaking, it is flexible to place a dehumidifier. However, it is recommended that the household dehumidifier should be placed in a free air circulation place as much as possible.
The dehumidifer should not be placed in a dead corner, because placing the dehumidifier in a dead corner can easily cause shortage of the airflow, and the desired dehumidification effect cannot be achieved. When using the dehumidifier, remember to place it in the middle of the room. If you want to place it near the wall, it is better to keep a distance of 10-15 cm.
In addition, the dehumidifier should be placed on a solid and flat floor to avoid vibration and noise during operation. It also avoids placing the objects on the humidifier. And it also avoids placing the dehumidifier in the direct sunshine or placing it near the heat source.
3. Can I open the door and window when the dehumidifier is running?
It is recommended not to open doors and windows while the dehumidifier is working. In fact, this is just like using the air conditioner. It also needs to close the doors and windows when the dehumidifier is turned on. If the doors and windows are open, the dehumidification effect will naturally not be very good.
4. The air conditioner has the dehumidification function, then do I need to purchase a dehumidifier?
Relatively speaking, it is more cost-effective to purchase a dehumidifier. After using an air conditioner to dehumidify, the indoor temperature will be reduced. The machine needs to cool and dehumidify, and the effect can be imagined. Therefore, the dehumidifier can be used for temporary operation, but long-term use of dehumidification not only consumes electricity, but also has no obvious effect. Especially when it rains, the temperature is not high, and the air conditioner blows out cold air, which can easily make people feel uncomfortable. In addition, if the air conditioner continues to run for several hours to dehumidify, it is harmful to the engine of the air conditioner, so it is suggested to buy a dehumidifier under relatively humid conditions.
5. Should a dehumidifier run all the time?
The operation concept mentioned here has two meanings: one refers to the running operation and the other refers to the operation in the power-on standby state. The current dehumidifier is not running in the "dehumidification operation (operation)" mode for 24 hours, but only for 24-hour power on, repeatedly running between the two modes of standby and dehumidification operation according to the set humidity range. The intelligent dehumidifier operates according to the set humidity range. When the humidity of the room reaches the set humidity, the dehumidification operation system will be automatically turned off. This saves electricity costs and minimizes the loss of the dehumidifier itself.
6. Will a dehumidifier kill mold?
Mold growth occurs in the place of continuous humidity. Controlling humidity will help solve mold problems, but it will not completely eliminate them. When the relative humidity is usually 60% or more, the mold will remain active. If you reduce the humidity by 50% with a dehumidifier and keep it at this level, the mold will become inactive and the situation will not get worse. However, the mold does not die, it is just inactive, and occasionally it produces mold spores. Therefore, the dehumidifier can remove moisture, which is helpful to prevent it but not kill it.
7. Can I clean the dehumidifier after using it for a long period?
It needs to be cleaned. The air duct (air inlet and outlet) or filter should be cleaned regularly. If the dehumidifier is used for a long time, the air inlet is easily blocked, and the air inlet is not smooth, which directly affects the dehumidification effect. Therefore, the air duct filter of the machine should be cleaned regularly, and it is recommended to clean it every two weeks. When cleaning the filter, make sure the machine is cut off the power to avoid problems in removing the filter screen.
