A small dehumidifier makes much sense when it comes to reducing humidity in small spaces. Many times at our homes we found high humidity at small places instead of the whole house. For example, areas like bathrooms, cupboards, below washbasin, etc. Buying compact dehumidifier for such applications will save money. It often observed that we get a lousy smell from the closet. This because of wetness in cloths which cause due to high humidity. We are installing a 20 to 25-liter big dehumidifier in the wardrobe, which is not a practical affair. Hence there is a need for some small portable dehumidifier. These small room dehumidifiers are sufficient to counter moderate humidity levels. This article explains how to select these a mini dehumidifier, what are its types and its benefits.
Why small dehumidifier needed?
The need for a small dehumidifier is primarily due to space restriction. As mentioned before, there are many examples of why we can’t use high capacity portable demystification unit. For instance, RV has small spaces in it. Each equipment in RVs selected and installed considering its physical size and its weight. RV prefers stuff with small physical size and low weight. Considering room size of RVs, 20 to 25 liters dehumidifier will be access capacity than required. At the same time, it will not fit in the criteria of size and weight required. Hence there is a specialized small room dehumidifier for RV has been developed. On holiday cruises, the guest room usually very compact. These rooms and bathrooms on holiday cruises always have high humidity due to proximity to the sea. We need to install a compact dehumidifier in these rooms and bathrooms.
Types of Small Portable dehumidifier.
There are basically three types of mini dehumidifiers; non rechargeable, chargeable and electric small dehumidifiers.
Non Rechargeable Small dehumidification unit.
These are basically silica bags which use to reduce humidifier. Bags contains silica gel which is granular and porous, a form of silicon dioxide and synthetically made from sodium silicate. Silica gel has desiccant property which means it can absorb moisture from air. Due to it’s this quality, it is use to reduce humidity. But once silica gel bags absorbs humidity it can not be reuse technically. However many reuse these bag by drying in sunlight.
Rechargeable small dehumidifier.
These unit also consists of silica gel but packed in attractive plastic container with facility to heat silica gel to remove humidity absorbed by silica gel granule from air. It is also called as wireless dehumidifier since while use it need not to connect to electric supply. Once dehumidifier absorb humidity from air to its full capacity then its shows red indication indicating that silica gel in it has no more capacity to absorb more moisture hence it need to dry. To dry silica gel, these unit connected to electric supply which generate heat and evaporated moisture from silica gel and make it reusable.
Electric Dehumidifier small or Peltier dehumidifier.
This small dehumidifier need to connect continuously to electric supply for dehumidification. However power consumption of this unit is negligible. Some of unit can even run on batteries. Due to its working principle it also call as peltier dehumidifier or Thermo-electric dehumidifier. It consists of peltier module which is sandwiched between two heat sinks. When electricity passes through this module it create temperature difference on both sinks. When humid air passes over cold heat sinks then condensation happens and humidity get removed. This is best small room dehumidifier.
Advantages of Small Dehumidifier.
Few advantages of Small dehumidifier area as follow:
- Compact Size: Small portable dehumidifiers are very compact in size hence it is suitable to place in crawl spaces. Due to its compact size it can incorporate in RVs and boat. These are best boat dehumidifier.
- Light weight: Small dehumidifier does not contains compressor or desiccant wheels. It is very light in weight.
- Electricity consumption: Small room crawl space dehumidifier consumes very negligible electric power as compared to refrigerant dehumidifier.
- Low cost: Small bathroom dehumidifiers are very affordable. It has much low cost than refrigerant dehumidifier.
