NEW YORK, April 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Moisture in the air can cause problems in the home like damage to electronics, books and clothing and personal discomfort. A dehumidifier can alleviate these issues by pulling moisture from the air. Technologies like Smart Dry which compares the set and actual humidity and adjusts the fan automatically, to reminders to check your filter or a bucket full alarm make operation and maintenance of a Haier dehumidifier simple.
"We want to simplify the customer experience so we've incorporated technologies in Haier dehumidifiers that make operation and maintenance simple," said Tom Kelly, vp of the air conditioning group, Haier America. "We are also aware of environment and money concerns so the majority of our line is ENERGY STAR qualified which means they use less energy than standard models."
Before purchasing a dehumidifier there are some things to think about like where will the unit be placed. A wet area such as a basement will need a larger pint capacity such as a 65 pint. The pint capacity on dehumidifiers determines how many pints of water the unit will take out of the air in a 24 hour period. To dry an area faster, select the next largest sized unit. Haier offers a number of ENERGY STAR® qualified dehumidifiers which use less energy than standard models." In fact, according to ENERGY STAR website, the annual energy saved by an ENERGY STAR qualified dehumidifier could power your ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerator for 4 months.
Selecting the correct dehumidifier will not resolve problems in the home that are caused by continuous moisture build up like leaks in the basement so be sure to address specific problems.To learn more about how to choose the correct size dehumidifier visit Haier's Info Hub.
