Drying Laundry Indoors with a Dehumidifier

You may associate dehumidifiers with damp rooms and cellars but these machines have a number of benefits that you may not immediately consider; drying laundry is one such example where a dehumidifier can be efficient than a traditional tumble dryer.

Cost, particularity in the current economic climate, is the biggest advantage since a dehumidifier can cost as little as 8 pence an hour to operate opposed to a tumble dryer that may cost anything up to £2 a time.

Drying clothes naturally without added heat is also better for the fabrics, making your clothes last longer and feeling softer.

A dehumidifier will also remove excess moisture from the rest of the house during the winter months which will prevent common problems such as condensation and black mould and, most importantly, a house with less internal moisture needs a lot less energy to heat.

A quality dehumidifier can also act as an air purifier, ensuring you home is not just dry but also healthy.

An energy efficient dehumidifier/air purifier such as the MeacoDry Arete One with built-in humidstart will only operate when the humidity level reaches a certain level so it is not operating all of the time, which also helps save money again.
