About Prem-i-air Dehumidifier
If you dry your washing indoors, if the ventilation is poor, or if your property is old then chances are your home may suffer from damp. Bathing, showering, cooking and even breathing can all contribute to a build up of excess humidity which, in turn, causes mould and mildew to grow and flourish. This is not only bad for your home and your belongings but also your health, particularly if you suffer from asthma or allergies. Prem-I-Air dehumidifiers help eliminate all that excess moisture from the air.
Prem I Air offers three types of dehumidifiers: compressor, desiccant and peltier, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.
A compressor (or refrigerant) dehumidifier creates a cold surface on which warm moisture in the air is condensed whereas a desiccant dehumidifier uses a material (similar to silica gel) to absorb the dampness in the air.
With no need for a compressor, the desiccant dehumidifier tends to be the smaller and lighter of the two, and is generally quieter as well. The desiccant also works better than the compressor in lower temperatures, which makes it an ideal choice for caravans, garages, warehouses and other properties where temperatures are likely to drop. The compressor dehumidifier consumes less power than the desiccant and therefore has lower running costs.
A peltier dehumidifier, on the other hand, is the quiet, low power alternative to the compressor and desiccant dehumidifiers but only permits dehumidification of small areas such as box rooms and wardrobes.
