CAS Hire Refrigerant Dehumidifier Hire
CAS provides a range of dehumidifiers to deal with a wide variety of moisture-related problems in the domestic, commercial and industrial environments.
A dehumidifier is made extremely versatile by the fact that it requires no ventilation – it does not need to be connected to a door or window. As a result it can be used anywhere and any time.
- Flood restoration projects
- Hairdressing salons
- Damp climates
- Hot and humid climates – this would be for comfort because they reduce the humidity which causes discomfort (just as a regular air conditioner, but without cooling the room)
The greatest attraction of a dehumidifier must be that it can remove three times as much moisture as a heater, for the same energy costs.
In the commercial and industrial worlds a dehumidifier can be of huge benefit to an employer, as it reduces costs due to condensation damage and promotes a healthy atmosphere amongst the workforce, which can only increase their productivity.
The performance of all units is significantly enhanced while the dehumidifier unit’s Carpet Dryer is activated.
Dehumidifiers – Technical Information:
A specific type of air conditioner that is used only for extracting moisture is called a dehumidifier. A dehumidifier is different from a regular air conditioner in that both the evaporator and condensor coils are placed in the same air path, and the entire unit is placed in the environment that is intended to be conditioned (in this case dehumidified), rather than requiring the condensor coil to be outdoors.
Having the condensor coil in the same air path as the evaporator coil produces warm, dehumidified air. The evaporator (cold) coil is placed first in the air path, dehumidifying the air exactly as a regular air conditioner does. The air next passes over the condensor coil re-warming the now dehumidified air. Note that the terms “condensor coil” and “evaporator coil” do not refer to the behavior of water in the air as it passes over each coil; instead they refer to the phases of the refrigeration cycle. Having the condensor coil in the main air path rather than in a separate, outdoor air path (as in a regular air conditioner) results in two consequenses – the output air is warm rather than cold, and the unit is able to be placed anywhere in the environment to be conditioned, without a need to have the condensor outdoors.
Unlike a regular air conditioner, a dehumidifier will actually heat a room just as an electric heater that draws the same amount of power (watts) as the dehumidifier. A regular air conditioner transfers energy out of the room by means of the condensor coil, which is outside the room (outdoors). This is a thermodynamic system where the room serves as the system and energy is transferred out of the system. Conversely with a dehumidifier, no energy is transferred out of the thermodynamic system (room) because the air conditioning unit (dehumidifier) is entirely inside the room. Therefore all of the power consumed by the dehumidifier is energy that is input into the thermodynamic system (the room), and remains in the room (as heat).
