Dehumidify the air

Air that is too humid is harmful to our health and can also damage furniture or other objects. If the air is too humid, mould can form. This is particularly bad for allergy sufferers. On our page, you will find more information about what the problem of too humid air is and how air can be dehumidified easily and efficiently.

Air humidity

Development of excessive humidity

At high temperatures, the humidity in the air increases. This is because warm air can absorb more water vapour. However, excessive humidity can also occur if heating is too economical in winter. You can find out more about this in our article "How economical heating can lead to the formation of mould”. Indoor air is considered too humid if the relative humidity value is permanently above 60 %.

The problem

Room air too humid

If the relative humidity is above 60 %, the indoor air is considered too humid. Excessive humidity promotes mould growth and poses a risk to people and the environment. Allergy sufferers in particular can suffer even more if the humidity is too high.

Humidity in different rooms

If the cellar is too damp, there is a risk that all the furniture and goods stored in it may be damaged or become completely unusable. A first indication of excessive humidity can be a musty, unpleasant odour. Mould can quickly form and spread. However, it is not only the goods that are at risk; if you stay in a mould-infested cellar for a longer period of time or use items stored there later in your home, this can lead to health problems. This risk also exists in storage rooms, garden sheds, hobby rooms, etc.

The more humid the air, the slower the laundry dries. In addition, the drying room is occupied for longer and it can take longer before the next load of laundry can be hung up.

New buildings are often occupied immediately after completion. Too little time is allowed for drying the building, especially the walls. As a result, the humidity is often too high in all rooms for the first few years. The occupants, furniture, instruments, paintings and textiles are permanently exposed to excessively humid air and can be damaged.

We often don't realise that it has been too damp in the flat or house for a long time. As with new buildings, furniture, textiles and wooden musical instruments absorb this moisture and can be damaged. Mould can form, posing a health risk to the people and animals living in the home.

The solution

Dehumidifier for drying the room air

If measures such as airing the room, running the ventilation in the bathroom after showering, not drying laundry in the flat, etc. do not help, it is time to take action. The best solution for dehumidifying the home is a dehumidifier. A mobile appliance that can be used in different rooms is an advantage – such as the practical appliances from Stadler Form with transport castors.

The different dehumidifier systems

There are various types of dehumidifiers that function differently. A basic distinction is made between condensation/compression dryers, peltier dehumidifiers, absorption dryer and desiccant dryer.
