Using a ThermaStor dehumidifier will decrease the amount of humidity inside your home or workplace by taking the extra moisture out of the air. Too much humidity inside your home or workplace encourages mold and other allergens to grow and can cause the wood your home or work building was built with to decay and weaken.

Based in Madison, Wisconsin, ThermaStor has been in business for 34 years. They are a leader in the industry with the technology for advanced high-efficiency heat transfer products, like their heat recovery water heaters. They offer a wide range of home and/or office dehumidifiers to make living and working more comfortable and restoration equipment for larger jobs of dehumidifying, “air scrubbing”, extracting water and drying by evaporation.

If you have allergies or asthma, a ThermaStor dehumidifier can help reduce the symptoms you experience by lowering the moisture in your home. Molds and dust mites thrive in moist environments so it would stand to reason that if you decrease the level of humidity in your home the mold and number of dust mites would decrease as well. Your symptoms may not disappear altogether but you may find significant relief from them.

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology recommends maintaining the humidity level in your home at or below 50%. Not only will this help decrease allergens it will also help prevent damage to exposed wood surfaces like floors and beams.

A dehumidifier can also help you save money on air conditioning. You know the difference between dry air and moist air. Moist air is heavy and can make it hard to breathe, dry air is cooler and a lot more comfortable so you can save some money on your electric bill.

Just make sure you have a good system set up to dispose of the water when the container is full by emptying it yourself or hooking up a hose that leads from the unit to a floor drain.

One thing you need to take care with is to buy the right sized humidifier for the job. A too small dehumidifier will not remove enough moisture from the air and may end up costing you more money on that electric bill because it is having to work overtime.

The best way to choose your dehumidifier is to measure the length and width of the space you will have the dehumidifier in and figure out the square footage. Make sure that the unit you buy will handle the area needing dehumidification.

If the square footage is at the upper end of the capacity of the unit you are looking at, it is advisable to choose the next highest capacity dehumidifier to be sure you are getting the coverage you need and that the unit is operating at peak efficiency.

If too much moisture is a problem in your home or workplace there is a ThermaStor dehumidifier that will work for you. Whether the space is large like a warehouse or small like a crawlspace ThermaStor makes a dehumidifier for the job. They even offer products that will handle the dehumidification of indoor pool and spa areas.
