Are there cracks and watermarks on your walls and ceiling? Is a damp misty odor welcoming you home? Are you and your kids suffering from sudden bouts of cough or allergic rhinitis? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you’re having high humidity levels indoors.
To tackle, the problems related to enhanced moisture indoors, there is a varied range of moisture extracting devices available in the market. These devices are called dehumidifiers. Dehumidifiers extract excessive moisture from the surroundings and make your house drier and healthier.
Keystone 30 Pt room dehumidifier is yet another addition in the wide range of domestically-used moisture-extracting devices. As the name suggests, the unit removes up to 30 pints of moisture from the surroundings. The device is ideal for a room or a basement as big as 1500 sq feet.
Equipped with electronic controls with LED control panel and 24 hour timer, the machine is easy to use. The device gives user the flexibility of three modes of moisture extraction – Normal, Turbo, and Auto-Defrost. A transparent water level indicator and a full-bucket alert feature with innovative automatic shut-off make things easier for busy working couples.
The device does offer an option of continuous drainage using a low level drain and a standard garden hose (with an option to buy the connector hose). The dehumidifier comes with a detachable easy to clean dust filter with clean filter alert. The auto-restart feature of the unit saves the settings during a power outage. With easy to move rolling casters, you can move the device around, anywhere in the house.
The device is quieter than a normal window AC but more effective in extracting moisture than the air conditioner. The machine automatically shuts off every 5 hours with the need to empty the water, at 35% humidity settings. The only downside that can affect your buying decision is that the device gives out warmer but drier air, so if you’re an inhabitant of a warm climate, this could be an issue, otherwise it’s just the right choice for the price.
