For even faster drying, air circulators (fans) should be used in conjunction with your dehumidifier. Stronger air circulation leads to faster evaporation. Air, which is propelled by an air circulator, moves at speed over damp surfaces (floors/walls etc) and acts as a sponge, before it is sucked into the dehumidifier.

The drying time can be halved using both a dehumidifier and an air circulator.


Building Drying radically reduces heating costs:

Shorter and shorter building times and the increasing use of heat insulation mean that the moisture introduced during the building process is not permitted to be properly dried out. Damage as a result of excessive residual damp is inevitable. Heating costs for the home owner with residual damp are 200-300% higher in the first three years than for a dry building. This is due to the moisture related high heat conductivity.

Heating costs are two-three times higher in the three years after the building is completed if the building fabric is damp.
