Notice fungus growth or a mouldy stench in your home? You need a dehumidifier! By reducing the moisture in our humid environment, a dehumidifier can help prevent such problems. Read on for our guide to know more about the best dehumidifiers in Singapore that you can purchase!

What does a dehumidifier do?

Dehumidifiers serve to take the moisture out of air when it is too humid. They are typically used during summer and spring when humidity is the highest. That makes it rather essential for homes in Singapore, where humidity levels can go up to 90% in the morning and average at around 70% throughout the day. High humidity can result in fungus growth, ruining our furniture and harming our health. A simple dehumidifier can help to reduce such risk. 

Dehumidifier vs humidifier — What is the difference?

Humidity levels in the air surrounding us can make or break comfort levels. Depending on several factors such as the country you are in or the time of day, humidity levels can vary drastically. When the air gets too dry or too moist, that is when dehumidifiers and humidifiers come into play — the two serve the same purpose of altering humidity levels but have opposite functions. Check out the table below to gain a better understanding of the difference between the two. 

Appliance Purpose Best for
Dehumidifier Takes moisture out of the air when it is too humid
  • Countries like Singapore with constantly humid climate
  • Summer and spring seasons
  • Bedrooms, storerooms and laundry areas with little to no ventilation
Humidifier Adds extra moisture to dry air
  • Countries with dry climates
  • Bedrooms in Singapore with air-conditioning switched on all the time

Why should I get a dehumidifier?

Should asthma be an issue for you or anyone living in your home in Singapore, it is best to get a dehumidifier. High humidity can trigger allergies and impact our health. Even if you don’t have asthma, you may experience discomfort due to damp air. Aside from health risks, dehumidifiers can also prevent mould from developing on surfaces such as ceilings and walls. If you have wood, glass or other organic materials, a dehumidifier is very necessary for maintenance purposes in order to prevent mould growth. This is similar to how we store our precious cameras and camera lenses in a dry box to ensure that they are void of any mould! As such, dehumidifiers are important to keep the indoor air relatively drier, giving similar comforting effects as air purifiers and air coolers would. 

Where is the best place to put a dehumidifier in my home in Singapore?

There is no single correct place on where to place a dehumidifier at home. However, studies have shown that the most humid areas in a typical modern Singaporean home would be in wardrobes, bathrooms, laundry areas, storage rooms and sometimes living rooms if there is poor ventilation.
