What should you know about construction dehumidifiers?

Construction air dehumidifiers

During construction and finishing works, as well as immediately after their completion, moisture is a serious problem, especially in the winter season. It affects both the quality and durability of the work performed, as well as the pace of their execution. Failure to eliminate moisture during finishing works may result in the removal of tiles, cracking of plasters and finish coats, wallpaper peeling and, as a result, the development of fungal growth.

The most effective way to get rid of moisture is to use modern building air dehumidifiers. They can be used during construction works, accelerating their pace and increasing the comfort of work of construction workers, as well as after their completion, which will enable the premises to be put into operation faster.

What are construction dehumidifiers?

Construction air dehumidifiers are highly efficient modern devices with high technical and durability values, used to dehumidify the air in rooms from the moisture contained in it. They are characterized by a solid and durable steel housing that ensures durability in difficult construction conditions, a wide range of works in terms of humidity and temperature, and automation that allows for precise control of the drying process.

Types of air dryers

There are various types of air dehumidifiers on the market, but the most important of them are condensation dehumidifiers and adsorption dehumidifiers.

  • Condensing dryers consist of a condenser that compresses the air and two heat exchangers. Their principle of operation is similar to that of a refrigerator or air conditioner. They are characterized by high efficiency, so they are used in rooms with really high humidity.

  • Adsorption dehumidifiers, which use the phenomenon of adsorption, i.e. the bonding of molecules, atoms or ions on the surface or interface of physical phases, causing local changes in concentration.

Construction dehumidifiers – advantages and disadvantages

As already mentioned, the use of construction air dehumidifiers allows you to shorten the drying process of finish coats, paints, plasters and floors to a minimum. In addition, they prevent the development of pathogenic molds, fungi and bacteria, and improve the comfort of employees and room users.

The disadvantages of air dehumidifiers include high electricity consumption and loud operation of these devices.
