In the Commercial or Industrial Spaces, One of the major Problems is Humidity Level, which is now a days unbearable and also unpleasant as a working environment.

Humidity can ruin your wooden furniture, your floors and even damage some of the electronics in your house. But the real problem arises in a commercial space.

Humidity is the amount of moisture present in the air. Typically it is measured in percentages; if air has 100% humidity, it cannot hold any more water.

The typical percentages of humidity can range between 30-60%, maintaining a healthy moisture level in the air. If the moisture levels are below 30%, it is not that big of a deal, but when it goes beyond 60, that’s where problems arise.

The most common abnormal humidity-based problems are:

  1. A high amount of condensation
  2. Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating due to abnormally high humidity in the air)
  3. Mold growth
  4. Mildew growth
  5. Increase in the number of insects and pests
  6. Asthma is triggered in people who have pollen/mold triggered asthma.
  7. Damage to computer peripherals
  8. Damage to particleboard and wooden furniture, floors, paneling
  9. Damage to books, papers, etc.

Suppose you spot a combination of more than three of the problems mentioned earlier. In that case, you may have an abnormally high humidity level in the ambient air in your commercial or workspace.

We all know that if we have such a problem at our home, we can just buy a dehumidifier to help keep the humidity between that healthy range. But what about commercial spaces?– Luckily enough, Most dehumidifier manufacturers make commercial dehumidifiers, and some make full-blown Industrial dehumidifiers for big factories and power plants.

And we have prepared a list of some of our picks of the best commercial dehumidifier that you can buy in 2020.

And to keep it made in house, this list contains only products that are dehumidifiers made in USA.

Always choose a Best Commercial Dehumidifier by taking care of Moisture capacity, Airflow capacity, length of the draining hose. Autostart system. these are the few technologies I personally prefer before choosing a dehumidifier.

If you are still confused in choosing a Perfect commercial dehumidifier for your Industries, Please refer to our buying guide to ensure that you get the optimum performance from your dehumidifier, which is an absolute necessity in most commercial/industrial/workspaces.

Buying Guide:

What is Commercial Dehumidifier?

If you have researched about the dehumidifiers so you would have known the generally dehumidifiers are 3 types Residential, commercial and industrial dehumidifier.

As the name suggest Residential is pretty basic one for home usage only, lets jump to commerical or industrial dehumidifier. Both are quite similiar in application or in the term of hardware also.

Commercial dehumidifier is heavy duty dehumidifier which is used in quite large space having application of humidity, so we use these Heavy duty dehumidifier to kill those moisture levels to make that space work friendly.

Factors to consider while choosing Best Commercial Dehumidifier:

Always look for these Features if you really want to choose a long lasting and Best commercial Dehumidifier

Dehumidifier size:

A dehumidifier’s size is the total capacity of moisture it can remove before the reservoir is filled. And if you have anywhere from 500 sq.ft to 1200 sq.ft, we recommend that you should buy a dehumidifier that has a capacity of over 100 pints. Anything below that will not be powerful enough to remove 60%+ humidity altogether. And anything over 200 pints in 2020 is just overkill. It will take much more time to run, and will consume more energy.

Automatic Humidistat:

An excellent heavy-duty industrial dehumidifier should have a humidistat set to the desired level, helping maintain a constant humid air inside the workspace. And contrary to popular belief, an automatic humidistat saves power by shutting off the dehumidifier when the desired level is achieved.

Programmable timer:

An excellent professional dehumidifier should have a programmable wake and sleep timer; this allows you just to set a timer and not even worry about turning on and shutting down the dehumidifier.

The outlet for the reservoir:

A standard commercial dehumidifier uses a refrigeration system that condenses the ambient moisture into water and stores it. So, you need to make sure there is an outlet for this water to run out of the reservoir. If none, the modern dehumidifiers are programmed not to start again until the reservoir has been emptied. Even though you can manually drain it with a bucket, we recommend buying one with a gravity draining port, which pulls water out of it using the gravitational force. You can also connect it to an external condensate pump that will pull out this condensed moisture and push it out of the commercial/workspace.

Internal condensate pump:

Even though some dehumidifiers allow you to remove the collected condensate manually, we recommend that you get one that has an internal condensate pump built in to facilitate easy drainage. And once you have set it up, you don’t have to worry about the reservoir getting filled up completely.

And as many dehumidifiers have an auto shut-off functionality, the dehumidifier won’t run until you empty the reservoir thoroughly. And in an industrial/commercial setting, manual drainage is not a convenient option.

Removable Air filter:

You might want to consider a dehumidifier that has a user-removable air filter. The air filter performs the job of protecting the fragile inner components by filtering out particulate pollutants and debris present in the air. And if you buy one that comes with a user-removable filter, you can swap out the filter yourself once the filter gets damaged. Otherwise, the manufacturer charges you hundreds of dollars to do that.

Noise level:

If you don’t want your employees to go deaf, or complain to you a lot about the buzzing sound that dehumidifier in the corner is making, we suggest you look for a quiet option. Many dehumidifiers operate on a low dB rating to protect the ears of the people around them. An excellent commercial dehumidifier should have a Maximum dB rating of 40-50 dB. Anything above that will be annoying, especially in an office type setting.

Do you really need a Dehumidifier?

In homes, just your daily activities might cause high humidity levels like cooking, washing clothes, etc. But the problems in a commercial space are somewhat different.

But before you even thinking about buying a professional dehumidifier, you need to know what are the common reasons for abnormal humidity levels:

Water leakage through the building’s envelope:

If your commercial space is in Florida or maybe a troubling city like Seattle, where it seldom stops raining, and you are facing a humidity problem, you might want to check your building’s waterproofing. Sometimes a tiny leak in this waterproofing layer can cause abnormally high humidity levels.

Damp ground conditions:

If your building has been erected on suspended timber flooring and the ground conditions underneath are damp, then the whole building’s humidity levels can get very high.

Retained construction moisture:

Some materials like timber flooring, concrete, and plaster can retain water in the form of moisture. When the conditions are humid, they can release this moisture, causing the overall humidity to rise.

Plumbing leaks:

Suppose there are any plumbing leaks or leaks in the Air conditioning unit. In that case, this water can evaporate into the ambient air and cause the humidity levels of the commercial/workspace’s humidity levels beyond the safe limit.

If you have any such problems, you might want to consider rectifying them before installing a professional dehumidifier in your commercial/workspace.

If you have determined that you don’t have any of the above faults or rectify it, then you need a Good Dehumidifier. You can read our Comparison above and choose the best suitable one.

FAQ:

  • How does a commercial dehumidifier work?

It works using a simple refrigeration system. When the ambient air flows through the dehumidifier, it flows over a continuously cooled evaporator coil, which condenses the air’s moisture. This condensate is collected in a reservoir pumped out through the drainage hose.

  • If I have an A/C in my commercial space, why do I need a dehumidifier?

Yes, we do agree that A/C does dehumidify to some extent. But it doesn’t do it very efficiently. A/C does remove water when it cools the air but doesn’t have a large enough pump and condensate reservoir that can clean above 60% RH.

  • Can’t just ventilation help my RH problem?

Yes, ventilating your space might work when the dew point outside is lower than that of your space. But if you have an A/C, then the dew point inside will be significantly higher than the dew point outside, causing an increase in the RH levels.

Whichever product you buy, make sure that your commercial space has enough room to store the dehumidifier.

You also need to make sure that you have the plumbing and electrical wiring job is done before you decide to install a commercial dehumidifier. It is essential, as a commercial dehumidifier will run for hours, maybe for days continuously at a time, so it needs to have a place where it can drain all the condensate, and of course, it has a steady power supply.
