Recommendations for a Dehumidifier
« on: November 27, 2013, 08:47:05 am »
I seem to have a mold problem starting in my kitchen due to condensation (my boiler is in there) and hanging laundry to dry...don't fancy leaving the window open and freezing all winter. I've gone nuts with the mold killer, just need to keep the place dry to stop it coming back.

The kitchen is separated from my main room with a sliding door, and my main room is pretty dry and absolutely mold free. So I just want a dehumidifier for the kitchen only, it's maybe 3 square meters in area.

Any idea how many litres would I need for this size?

I don't really want to spend more than 70,000 won. I looked on G-Market and the ones in this range tend to be 500ml - 1.5 L models. Would they be sufficient?

Thanks!

the literage doesn't really matter too much, if you are not using a hose or the basin is too small. It can be a 20L, but if the basin is only 2L, it doesn't matter. I'd go with a 1-2L and then check to see if you can use a hose with it, and place the hose next to a drain or in the sink. It sounds like you need something running all the time.

I can't recommend one, but I'm also looking into one. I just finished cleaning a lot of mold that had started growing behind furniture. Does the dehumidifying function on the air conditioner work well enough to just use that, or should I be getting a separate unit?

First off, you don't have to keep your windows open all of the time.  Try to air the house out twice a day for 5 minutes. 

If you want a dehumidifier, best to check on Enuri.com and buy one.  Pay attention to the rate of water it takes out per day.  Big difference.

Here are some near your cost:

I did buy one of the big one and it cost me around 300 but I think you should look into it. The one I have has a setting that helps dry you clothes faster. Since I bought it my clothes actually feel dry and my apartment is much more dry these days. It also acts as an air filter so that is nice also.

This is the model I bought
