What Matters When Buying A Dehumidifier
Dehumidifier Vs Humidifier
What is humidity? It is the moisture content present in our surroundings. The humidity level best suited for good health ranges from 30-50%. There are two devices used to manipulate the humidity level. Dehumidifiers and humidifiers.
Dehumidifiers are used to reduce the moisture content of the surrounding air. These are used in a warm climate, mostly during summers. Dehumidifiers are used when the humidity level exceeds 50% and are helpful in overcoming allergies.
Humidifiers serve the opposite purpose and are used to increase the moisture content. Humidifiers are used in cold and dry weather, mostly winters. They are used when the moisture content falls below 35% and help in keeping the skin soft.
The basic aim is to keep the humidity level in check and within our desired range. The moisture content is the factor which decides if a humidifier is required or a dehumidifier.
The types of both are discussed below,
Mechanical or refrigerative dehumidifier is most commonly used and consists of a fan that sucks air over cooled pipes that result in condensation. The best dehumidifier is the adsorption type which has a desiccant and reduces the humidity to 35%. Desiccants absorb moisture easily and are rotated through the area where moisture is to be removed. Electronic Fehumidifiers use a heat pump to get a cool surface on which the moisture collects. Ionic Membrane Dehumidifiers work at a molecular level while makeshift Dehumidifiers like air conditioners are also used.
There are basically two types of humidifiers, Warm mist humidifiers and cool mist humidifiers. Warm mist humidifiers are most common as they only involve boiling water, which releases steam in the surroundings. As for the cool mist humidifiers there are a few types. Evaporative humidifier involves a fan blowing the water off a surface of a wick which has water absorbed. Impeller humidifier involves a rotating device which transferring water to a diffuser which disperses it into the air. Ultrasonic humidifier breaks the water into very small droplets which are then distributed by a fan.
Like everything else, these devices need maintenance.
Humidifiers should only use distilled water and need to be cleaned regularly. The area surrounding the humidifier should be kept relatively dry.
Clean the dehumidifier regularly and don’t let the water stand for long as that produces bacteria. The coil needs to be checked for frost in the cold weather as it decreases efficiency.

I decided to be a nurse in a very difficult period of my life. I reached a point where I questioned my way of living. I may talk about this in a future post. But back to the topic at hand I started my career as a nurse in 2010.
I said to myself that I wasn’t doing anything meaningful with my life I wasn’t helping anyone so I was useless to society. Actually my grandma was a nurse and she advised me to give this career a go. She was right because I don’t regret my decision one bit.
Of course I had to take nursing courses but I felt a strong desire to do this job, to help sick on dying people so learning to become a nurse was a joy and not a burden. Also this Job has allowed me to meet some wonderful and interesting people. I think some of them even deserve to be called saints and they have forever helped me to become a better person.
Being in us also has its negative side because you get the front row seat at the end of many people’s lives. But his job has opened my eyes even more and I see this now as a normal part of life even more dim before. I’m thankful I got to meet the people that are no longer with us and I pray that there enjoying the new existence in the afterlife. I guess this is pretty much why I chose this career and if you feel lost and without a compass in your life being a nurse and helping others in their time of need may be the thing that brings balance to your existence.
I thought long and hard, if I should make a blog or not, but finally I said why not. Oh, BTW my name is Zoey Davenport and I am an experienced nurse. My blog will follow my day to day activities from my home to the hospital and back.
Have a nice day,
