Mini Dehumidifier which is compact & small.

A mini dehumidifier makes much sense when it comes to micro spaces. Many times at our homes, we found high humidity at tiny places instead. For example, areas like bathrooms, cupboards, and below the washbasin. Buying a compact dehumidifier for such use will save money. CtrlTech offers CD12L small dehumidifier with twelve liters per day capacity.

It often observed that we get a lousy smell from the closet. This because of wetness in cloths which cause due to high humidity. Fixing large capacity units in the wardrobe is not practical affairs. Hence, there is a need for some small capacity units.

These dehumidifiers are enough to counter humidity levels. This article explains how to select a compact size mini dehumidifier. Also, we will discuss its types and benefits.

Why mini dehumidifier needed?

The need for a compact dehumidifier is due to space restriction. As mentioned before, there are many examples of why we can’t use the high capacity unit. For instance, RV has limited spaces in it. Each machine in RVs selected considering its size and its weight. The yacht prefers stuff with compact size, and that has a low weight.

Considering the room size of RVs, twenty liters of small dehumidifiers will be accessed. At the same time, it will not fit in the criteria of size and weight required. Hence, there is a special mini dehumidifier that has developed.

On holiday cruises, the guest room usually very compact. Besides, these rooms and bathrooms on cruises always have high humidity. It is due to proximity to the sea. We need to fix a dehumidifier in these rooms and bathrooms.

Types of the compact dehumidifier.

There are three types of dehumidifiers. These are non-rechargeable, chargeable, and electric compact dehumidifiers.

Non-rechargeable dehumidifier unit.

These are silica bags which use to reduce wetness. Bags contain silica gel in the form of granular and porous. In other words, silica gel is a form of silicon dioxide and cate. These bags act as a mini dehumidifier. Silica gel has a desiccant property. It means it can absorb moisture from the air.

Due to it’s this quality, it used to reduce humidity. But once silica gel bags absorb wetness, it can not reuse. Yet, many reuse these bags by drying in sunlight.

Rechargeable mini dehumidifier.

These compact dehumidifiers also consist of silica gel. But, packed in an attractive plastic container to recharge. It revived by heating silica gel to remove humidity absorbed by it. These units also called as wireless dehumidifier since it doesn’t need electric supply.

Once a mini dehumidifier absorbs humidity to its full capacity, it shows a red sign. The red LED shows that silica gel in it has no more capacity to absorb more moisture. As a result, it needs to dry. To dry silica gel, units connected to the electric supply. The heater inside the unit evaporates moisture from silica gel and make it reusable.

Electric dehumidifier.

Electrical mini size compact dehumidifier.

This small dehumidifier needs to connect always to the electric supply. But, the power consumption of this unit is negligible. Some of the systems can even run on batteries. Due to its working principle, it also calls as Thermoelectric or Peltier dehumidifier.

This mini dehumidifier consists of a Peltier module. This module sandwiched between two heat sinks. Electricity applied to these modules. Hence, it creates temperature differences on both sinks. When humid air passes over cold heat sinks, it gets condensation. And, humidity gets removed in the form of water. This type of unit also uses as a boat dehumidifier.

Advantages of the mini dehumidifier.

Few advantages of compact dehumidifier area as follow:

  • Small size dehumidifiers are very compact. Hence, it is suitable to place in crawl spaces. Due to its compact size, it can incorporate in RVs and boats.
  • Mini dehumidifier does not contain compressor or desiccant wheels. Thus, it is very light in weight.
  • A crawl space central dehumidifier consumes less electric power. In short, it is insignificant as compared to the compressor dehumidifier.

Dehumidifier reviews; Mini Peltier dehumidifier.

In this article, we will do dehumidifier reviews. Especially, Peltier effect based dehumidifier. These units often call as Peltier or thermo-electric. This model favorite choice of first-time buyers due to its attractive price. And it is useful but for small spaces too.

Many Peltier effect based unit is amongst the top ten dehumidifiers. It always gets the best reviews from reviewers. We will compare this dehumidification unit with a traditional compressor-based system. Please note, compressor dehumidifier works on the condensation principle. Let’s start Peltier dehumidifier reviews.

Dehumidifier review.

As mentioned before unit works on the Peltier effect. It is nothing but the creation of temperature difference. This unit consists of two heat sink joined by the Peltier module. To clarify, these two heat sink made up of different metals. The voltage applied to two different types of metal joined to each other.

When the electric voltage applied then one metal becomes hot and others become cold. In other words, this creates a temperature difference between the two sinks. The process also called a thermos electric effect. Because it relates temperature with electricity.

When humid air passes over the cold metal surface, moisture gets condensed. After that, dry air pushed out. Also, read dehumidifier reviews for other CtrlTech models in our blog.

Components of Peltier dehumidifier.

A Peltier model consists of the following parts:

  • Two heat sink made up of different materials. It named as a cold side heat sink and hot side heat sink.
  • A Peltier module which sandwiched between two heat sink to apply voltage.
  • A fan which pulls humid air and pushes dry air.
  • Electric circuitry, switches, and casing.

Dehumidifier review; How it works?

Peltier dehumidifier module.

When you start this unit the fan pulls humid air into the unit. Thereafter, this air first encountered by cold heat sink where dehumidification takes place. Moisture present in humid air is condensate into water. This process is like that of the condensation process in a room dehumidifier. Minimal components reduce its cost and hence helps to get good dehumidifier reviews.

Cold sink in Peltier dehumidifier act as the evaporator coil. The cold heat sink designed with a smooth surface. It grooved so that condensate water gets falls into the tank placed below the cold heat sink. After condensation, humid air converted into dry air. From there on, it passed over hot heat sink and pushed outside.

Pros & Cons of Peltier dehumidifier.

The Peltier types of dehumidifiers have lightweight. Hence, it is suitable to use as a boat dehumidifier. Also, due to its silent operation, it uses as a home dehumidifier too. Let’s understand the advantages and disadvantages of Peltier type units.

Advantages that help to get dehumidifier reviews.

Low Price;

The Price of Peltier dehumidifier less than the condensation-based system. But if you are going to buy this dehumidifier for a large room then you are going to wast money.

Quiet Operation;

This unit does not contain any noise-making or rotating parts. Hence, the operation of this unit is very silent. But due to its low price, the quality of the fan used is not good. It makes noise over a period of time.

Low Power consumption;

Power consumption is minimal. The unit runs of DC voltage. Overage power consumption if only 22 to 50 watts only.

The above advantages are the main reasons behind its good dehumidifier reviews.

Disadvantages of Peltier dehumidifier.

Low Dehumidification Power;

The Extraction capacity of these units is between 0.5 to 1.25 pint per day only. For sure, this capacity is very less compared to compressor dehumidifiers. Hence, Peltier dehumidifier is suitable for small spaces only. For example, spaces like the bathroom & cupboards. If you buy this system for big spaces then you will get disappointed. For large spaces, we need a commercial dehumidifier.

Quality & Reliability;

As per the working principle design, it is a reliable product. But, low-quality fan, heat sink, and switches make it the most unreliable unit.

Slow Speed;

The unit equipped a small fan which generally used on a computer. Hence, intake air itself is very less. Actually it is negligible. Due to this dehumidification speed is very slow. Thus, this mini dehumidifier is not at all suitable for large rooms. All this disadvantage will contribute to bad dehumidifier reviews.
