Question about LG Goldstar LD65EL Dehumidifier
Hello, I bought the LD65EBL a few months ago. I have a few questions. 1. Can you tell me what an optimal RHI would be for a basement. I normally try to keep it between 40 - 50% but I notice that when it reaches it's target it turns off and then 30 - 60 seconds later it turns back on. Is this normal? Also I keep it on a 2 hour interval. After the 2 hours it turns off. 2. I thought that having the dehumidifier run for 2 months that my basement would be dry, but it isn't. Is there something I should be doing. The basement is appromiately 500 sq ft fininished and another 500 sq ft unfinished. I keep the temperature at 75 degrees. The walls seem dry. I do have a sump pump. Thanks George
With that low of a setting it will most likely be kicking in alot more often. Most people run their dehumidifiers between 60-65%. It is a matter of preference. Also some basements hold out moisture more than others. There could be alot of variables affecting this. One thing you need to make sure is that you have the correct placement. Make sure you dont keep it near the sump pump or any other standing water because those areas have more humidity due to the water being there. Also make sure it is not in an area like a laundry room because when your washing machine despenses water it is despensing moisture into the air. I try to keep it at a central location if at all possible and away from areas that have water. If you found this solution helpful please rate it when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101
