With the cooler starting to kick in, it can lead to some colder mornings and condensation build up on the windows in our older house. In my mind, I know this could potentially lead to mold. Ewww. I don’t want to take any chances and the obvious solution for me was to find a good dehumidifier to draw the excess moisture from the air. I came across the Gurin Electric Compact Dehumidifier and decided to give it a try.
I have been really impressed with this little guy. As it claims, it is both lightweight and quiet. The Gurin Electric Compact Dehumidifier uses Peltier Technology (no compressor) which makes it light and quiet. It is perfect for bathrooms, and small to mid-sized rooms where dampness and humidity are a problem. Most importantly, it works!
Since the condensation in the windows hasn’t really started here yet, I decided to start testing it by steam cleaning our half bathroom and then leaving the dehumidifier on for awhile to see if it would pick up the moisture.
Lo and behold, about an hour later, you can see it collected a decent amount of water. When it extracts the moisture from the air and stores it in this spill-proof reservoir. It will hold up to 16 oz.
Next, I took it a step further and set it up in our master bathroom (we do not have a fan in there), where everyone takes their baths and showers and I let it run for 24 hours. It was almost halfway full the next day! The unit features an automatic shut off switch to shut the unit off when the water reservoir is full should it get to that point. When this occurs a “full” indicator light will light up when the reservoir needs to be emptied. I’d say it works like a champ.
