Dehumidifier Cycle Comparison (Less Wear and Tear)

The frequency of use of a dehumidifier is one of the major determining factors affecting how long it will last. Units in constant use and those improperly matched to the size of the area you are trying to treat will experience greater wear, potentially shortening their lives.  

Standard portable dehumidifiers must start and stop more often to keep up with basement dampness causing extreme wear and tear on the compressors. If your portable dehumidifier is running all day, it’s not keeping up with your needs. 

It’s time you invest in a high-capacity and high-efficiency unit that works. AprilAire dehumidifiers can remove up to two and a half gallons of water per day.
