Sleep Easy: The Best Dehumidifier For Bedroom Use

dehumidifier for bedroom

Is a build up of moisture in your bedroom causing you problems?

Did you know that mold and mildew can be harmful to your health and create problems for your health in the future?

Not everyone is sensitive to mold, but those that are can experience problems with their breathing and even skin irritation.

Anyone that has a weakened immune system or issues with their lungs definitely needs to take care not to expose themselves. 

Even if you don't show signs of reacting to mold, it's still not a good idea to be breathing in the spores night after night. 

If you've always considered using a dehumidifier for your bedroom but found them to be too big or too small, too ugly to match your décor, or most importantly, so noisy that you can’t manage to get a decent night’s sleep, then you're in luck!

The good news is that I can help you solve all of these problems.

I've found a dehumidifier that won't only get the job done but will do it so quietly you'll forget it’s even there!

What Makes a Good Dehumidifier?

To say it simply, a dehumidifier removes unwanted moisture from the air.

You may be wondering how exactly it does so.

A fan will suck in the moisture-filled air from the room. Once inside the dehumidifier, the temperature of the air is lowered to help remove the moisture.

 The air is then reheated before being distributed back out into the room.

The excess moisture becomes water and is collected in a reservoir within the dehumidifier unit.

With an abundance of small room dehumidifiers on the market today, it's important to pay attention to a few small features.

Noise Level 

If you're using a dehumidifier in a bedroom it's essential that noise is kept to a minimum.

There are some serious consequences to your health if you don't get regular, good quality sleep.

In general, it's the fan that makes the noise so look out for a dehumidifier that has a variety of settings so you can manually adjust the fan speed.

Also, the larger the dehumidifier the noisier it will be, so unless you're sleeping in a castle, a small to mid-sized unit will do the job just fine.

Auto Humidistat Function 

A dehumidifier may not need to be in use all the time. To save on energy (and keep the noise down) find a dehumidifier with an auto humidistat function.

You can select your desired humidity level range and the unit will only turn on when it needs to.

Automatic Reservoir Shut-Off

Most dehumidifiers will have some kind of light to indicate when the water reservoir is full.

Whilst it's best to pay attention to this light, it can be easy to forget (especially if you're sleeping).

A dehumidifier with an automatic reservoir shut-off will turn off if the reservoir is too full.

This eliminates waking up to an unpleasant mess that you have to clean up.

Ivation have created an elegant looking dehumidifier that won’t look out of place in your bedroom.

It offers Peltier technology, meaning there are no moving parts, to keep the unit whisper-quiet – just what you want from a dehumidifier for the bedroom.

The water reservoir is easy to remove when the indicator light reminds you to do so.

If it happens to fill up during the night whilst you're sleeping, the automatic shut-off function will kick in, ensuring there's no mess for you to clean up.

You'll also save a little on your energy bill courtesy of the auto humidistat function. The dehumidifier will only turn on and work when it needs to!

Pros And Cons

The Ivation IVADM45 is a great dehumidifier for the bedroom due to its quiet nature and the fact that it doesn't need to remain on all the time.

The mid-sized unit will be able to remove moisture in rooms up to 2,200 cubic feet but is also small enough to be moved around if you need to use it in several rooms.

It's cheaper than many other dehumidifiers, but it may not work as effectively in the maximum space advertised so it's best to use it only in smaller rooms.

In Conclusion

For a cheap and effective way to decrease the amount of moisture in your bedroom, the Ivation IVADM45 will do the job nicely.

If you have a larger than average bedroom you may need to look elsewhere, as the unit is more suited to being a small room dehumidifier.

It looks good, is easy to use, and you'll notice the health benefits from sleeping in a moisture-free room almost immediately.
