Dehumidification in residential buildingsOptimal indoor environment in living areas and cellars
For most people, a pleasant indoor atmosphere is 20°C and 40 - 60 % relative humidity.
Too high humidity in buildings can have many causes. The amount of water vapour originating from the residents should not be forgotten. A resting person sweats approximately 1 litre per day; an active person approx. 2.5 litres. Therefore, a family of 4 exudes up to 10 litres of water to the room air per day as water vapour. This corresponds to a full bath tub each week.
Dehumidifiers remove the excess humidity from the air and thus ensure a pleasant indoor environment while protecting inhabitants against health impacts and furnishings and the building structure against damage.
