A 30-pint dehumidifier is suitable for basements and crawl spaces of up to 1,500 square feet. 40 to 50-pint dehumidifiers tend to fall somewhere in the middle of the range as far as capacity is concerned. Again, they are suitable for spaces up to 2,000 square feet in size much like the 30-pint units.

Should a dehumidifier run constantly?

Run your dehumidifier only when humidity levels are higher than 50 percent. When you run your dehumidifier at any other time, your appliance will most likely run continuously and have very little impact on the overall air quality of your living space.

Why is my dehumidifier running but not collecting water?

If your dehumidifier is no longer pulling water from the air and you have verified that the ambient room temperature is above 65 degrees Fahrenheit, then the unit's compressor may not be running. A common cause for the overload to fail is from operating the dehumidifier on long or undersized extension cords.

How much water does a typical dehumidifier extract per day? Most manufacturers love to make claims of 10 to 20 litres per day on most small domestic dehumidifiers and up to 50 litres on larger models. However, these figures are under extreme conditions such as 85% relative humidity at 30C.

How long should a dehumidifier run per day?

With this assumption, you can safely run your dehumidifier for about 12 hours a day. That should (again, depending on your unit) run all the humid air in your space through the system at least once. I usually tell people to run their dehumidifier for 10-12 hours a day, and of course, the more the better.

Why a dehumidifier stops working?

When the coils start leaking refrigerant out, it means you have a leak in the refrigeration system. The coils will stop trapping the moisture when air flows through the machine. The condenser or filters may be clogged. Check to see if you can clean out any of the filters to free the air flow in the dehumidifier.

At what temperature does a dehumidifier stop working?

Most dehumidifiers should not be operated in temperatures below 60° F, since the moisture removed from the indoor air can freeze when it condenses on the cooling coils, which can damage the unit.
