Question about Dehumidifiers
Dehumidifiers don't really have a lot of moving parts. Basically it cools the metal coils and a fan blows air across it.
They can usually be set to a specific range of humidity levels and the fan speeds can usually be adjusted.
If you are wondering if yours if working you need to look at the coils while its running they should be COLD and you should see water condensing on them.
The colder the coils get the better the unit works. If you suspect they are very cold then your unit may not be working very well.
It cost just as much to run a unit that isn't working as it does one that is working.
Do you have a gauge to measure humidity in the house? You really do need to see what the humidity level is before you get a new unit.
The amount of water from a dehumidifier has a much to do with the humidity level in your home as it does the operation of the unit.
The dryer the air is already..... the less water there is to take out when it passes over the coils
