During renovations, cold and humid weather can pose delays for bricklayers, plasterers and painters. These renovation-works require warm, dry air and proper ventilation in order to dry efficiently. To speed up drying indoors it is often necessary to reduce indoor humidity using warm, dry air and sufficient ventilation.
However attempting to dry a renovated room using hot air from a heater can cause side effects such as surface discolouration and cracked walls; and hot air alone cannot reduce indoor humidity. Dehumidifiers can minimise the risk of these side effects by removing moisture from the air and reducing the indoor humidity levels regardless of the temperature outside. Warm, dried air is then released back into the room for ventilation, which helps speed up the process of water evaporation from damp walls or floors.
One of the most efficient types of dehumidifiers are desiccant dehumidifiers, often preferred by Tradies for their ability to perform at both low and high temperatures; able to dry to humidity levels as low as 35%RH. Desiccant dehumidifiers like the Ionmax ION612 [$439] and ION632 [$549] are low maintenance. The Zeolite used as the desiccant in these units regenerates itself, ensuring ongoing use with no need for replacements or maintenance. Capable of removing up to 10-litres of moisture a day, these dehumidifiers are ideal for drying out rooms after a water leak; and for speeding up drying in rooms that use water-based paints.
