A dehumidifier can play a valuable role in reducing allergens in the home with dust mites and mould being two of the main culprits.
The National Asthma Council Australia says that an indoor humidity level of between 30 and 60 per cent is ideal. Plus, results from a US study* showed that allergen levels were more than 10 times lower in homes with a low relative humidity compared with humid homes.
While compressor dehumidifiers have been around for some time, the newer technology of desiccant dehumidifiers can provide Australian homes with more versatility because they are efficient in both high and low temperatures.
Mould needs humidity levels of above 55 per cent relative humidity to grow so keeping your indoor humidity to anything below 50 per cent is best to inhibit mould growth.
Portable desiccant dehumidifiers such as the Ionmax ION612 and ION632 have the ability to lower indoor humidity to a very low level of 35 per cent relative humidity (RH) and integrate the latest advancements in air purification. Up to 10 litres of moisture can be extracted per day.
Dehumidifiers have many other uses
Lowering the level of humidity to a more comfortable range is not only better for your health, it is also beneficial for clothing, leather, books, wooden furniture, camera equipment, hobby and storage rooms.
Laundries are humid hot-spots and a perfect place to operate a dehumidifier where you can actually dry your clothes faster than using a clothes dryer. Setting the Ionmax desiccant dehumidifier to Turbo Laundry mode will increase drying efficiency and speed up the process.
All Ionmax dehumidifiers have a built-in humidistat, which measures and maintains a set RH, and multiple modes and settings to maintain homes at an optimum indoor humidity level.
Being the latest technology, Ionmax desiccant dehumidifiers do not need to be maintained. At their heart is zeolite, which is self-regenerating and the only maintenance needed is to clean or vacuum the filter regularly.
The Ionmax ION612 and ION632 have been highly rated and recommended by Choice with the Ionmax ION632 being Choice’s number one “Overall Best Performer” for four years running.
Ionmax dehumidifiers are priced from $199 and available from Ionmax.com.au
