The correct maintenance of a dehumidifier A dehumidifier, as it is, does not require much maintenance. But at the same time, as any electrical appliance, it does need some checking and looking after from time to time. If you can spare some time to pay heed to maintaining the dehumidifier, you can be assured of its long life span. Below are some tips on how to maintain a dehumidifier:
Replace the filter at regular intervals: The instruction manual will guide as to when to replace the filter. So go accordingly. The filter when replaced at the right time-frame will ensure better functioning of the dehumidifier. Clean the grills well: A dehumidifier has two grills, one that takes in the air and the other that releases the dehumidified air through a vacuum brush. Both these grilles should be cleaned from time to time, so that the dirt accumulated therein is cleared.
Don’t indulge in off-on: Never switch on and switch off the dehumidifier at once. Wait at least 10 minutes before switching it on. Otherwise, it puts pressure on the compressor. Summary: A dehumidifier is a convenient appliance because it does not need high maintenance but only a little bit of caring and cleaning at regular intervals.]]>
