What to Know When Selecting your Replacement Dehumidifier

Posted by TWPdehumidifier on Nov 2, 2016 3:48:10 PM

Although dehumidifiers are built to endure harsh environments, the average lifespan of a dehumidifier used for industrial and institutional applications is nine to eleven years. It is typically more expensive to keep an aging unit instead of simply replacing the dehumidifier altogether.

At Dehumidifier Corporation of America, we can easily replace an obsolete dehumidifier. With the help of our team of experts, we can help you choose the exact replacement dehumidifier you’re looking for based on your requirements.

The Growing Popularity of Urban Farms: Why People are Choosing Vertical Farming

Posted by TWPdehumidifier on Sep 21, 2016 2:29:43 PM

Vertical farming is an agricultural method in which crops such as leafy greens and herbs are farmed indoors within climate-controlled environments. As the process becomes more efficient and economically viable, these urban farms are becoming more prevalent across the United States.

By controlling important environmental factors indoors, growers are able to cultivate better-quality crops at higher yields and in shorter periods of time. This also reduces the human footprint on the environment, as water and nutrients are conserved and less pollution and emissions are generated.

Air Cooled Vs. Water Cooled Dehumidifiers

Posted by TWPdehumidifier on Aug 2, 2016 12:49:40 PM

Whether using dehumidification for industrial, commercial, residential, or swimming pool applications, customers must determine, if applicable, which of the two typical cooling system options will be the best fit for their application — air cooled or water cooled.

Air cooled dehumidifiers, for indoor pool room dehumidification and other projects, are the most common type and deliver warm dry air back to the space when operating. When room cooling is needed they are coupled with an optional outdoor remote condenser. This allows them to deliver warm dry air or cool dry air depending on what the controls call for.

The Advantage of Swimming Pool Dehumidification Systems

Posted by TWPdehumidifier on Jan 19, 2016 12:00:00 PM

Humidity is a major concern for all indoor swimming pool owners. Air-to-air heat exchangers and ventilation systems were commonly used to control pool room humidity.

These methods are expensive to operate and wasteful, in that they constantly exhaust previously heated or cooled air outdoors. They also often fail to prevent structural damage caused by excess moisture, as the formation of mold and mildew in cold walls can cause irreparable damage.

The most effective way to control pool room humidity is to use a full dehumidification system that serves to remove destructive moisture and add room heating as a by-product of the dehumidification cycle.

When to Repair or Replace Your Dehumidifier

Posted by TWPdehumidifier on Dec 1, 2015 10:00:00 AM

Hotel, motel, and residential indoor pool rooms are just a few scenarios where you can find dehumidification systems controlling the relative humidity. An unexpected failure of a dehumidification system in these facilities can have some considerable negative impacts.

A malfunctioning dehumidification system can cause mold and mildew build up quickly. This can lead to musty smells and poor air quality, not to mention structural issues.

Malfunctioning dehumidification systems can also lead to unhappy customers and bad reviews, which could hurt a business. In an industrial setting, a manufacturer can lose a large amount of money in downtime, missed deadlines, or ruined product when relative humidity is out of control.

Prevent Equipment Corrosion in Water Treatment Facilities

Posted by Jim Metzger on Sep 19, 2014 1:02:00 PM

Dehumidification plays a key role in the housekeeping maintenance of waste and fresh water treatment facilities. Metal surfaces such as holding, treatment and filtration tanks, pipes and pump room equipment are exposed to cold water that often brings their surface temperature below the room’s dew point temperature. When this happens, moisture forms on these surfaces causing rusting and corrosion.
