Also, what size dehumidifier do I need for 1000 square feet?
Use a 30-pint dehumidifier (or a unit between 24- and 39-pint capacity) in the following conditions: Damp rooms of 500-1,500 square feet. Very damp rooms of 500-1,000 square feet. Wet and extremely wet rooms of 500 square feet.
One may also ask, is it better to get a bigger dehumidifier? Firstly, even if the dehumidifier is more expensive it will pay off later because the higher capacity dehumidifier will work fewer hours to collect all moisture and without using the maximum capacity. Secondly, higher capacity dehumidifiers usually have bigger water containers.
Additionally, what size dehumidifier do I need for 800 square feet?
Many large units handle up to 2,500 square feet, while smaller units handle spaces up to 1,000 square feet. If your basement is 800 square feet, and moderately damp, a small unit that removes between 50 and 70 pints is ideal.
Does opening windows reduce damp?
When the temperature outside is low, it'll cool the window glass. Then, when the warm air inside the house comes into contact with the glass, it will react to it and fog it up. But even though condensation is simple — damp is anything but. Damp can't actually be chased away by simply opening the windows.
