  • dehumidifier

    Ok I bought a dehumidifier for the shop. Spent about $200.00.

    Couldnt bring myself to spend 1200.00 for a super duper. But, nevertheless this one is working good so far. It is very quiet also.

    My question is this. If I were to build a small shelf for it. Do you think it would be any less effective than if it were on the floor?

    I think that if you have the proper air flow around it it will be ok. You can buy models that sit on a shelf so I don't think there is too much difference

      It will do the same whatever height you put it at. So long as it has air to suck in .

        We have one set up in a house we're fixing up. We have it setting up on a shelf and it works perfectly fine. Just make sure it has are flow.

          Good idea!

          That is so good to know that your inexpensive dehumidifyer is working good! I am very frugal and love to save money. Could you tell me what part of your shop you placed the dehumidifyer? Near the tub? Thanks for the tip!

              Be careful of hair getting in the system. In one shop we were in we had to keep it running during the day and off at night since it would freeze over for some reason. We also had to keep blowing the hair of it every once in a while cause it sure would collect hair!!

              And I think as long as air flow isn't restricted it should work just fine.

                I have one also. I keep it near the tub. I've had it for years and when I bought it, it cost about $200. I do keep mine on the floor though, it is on wheels. I have not had any problems with hair on it, I just clean it off every once in a while.

                  Me too! But I have only had mine for about 8 mos. I got mine from Sears and love it. It has a hard time on really rainey days and we have a lot of big hairey dogs, but there have only been a couple of days that the windows fogged up.

                    Putting the dehumidifier on a shelf shouldn't have a big impact on it's performance and you'll be able to drain it directly into a sink or tub, so no more emptying by hand!

                      I wish I could put one in my trailer.

                        trailer dehumidifier?

                        How large are the dehumidifiers? I'm wondering why one would not work in a trailer. I've never used one before or worked where they had one.

                          It would work in the trailer, but..... when being mobile, you have to be careful how much stuff you have running. A generator can only handle so much before you pop a breaker. Even less if you plug into a clients house. Most house circuits only handle 15 amps. That barely handles my dryer. Now you could put it in the trailer and run it when you get home and are done for the night. I am just too damn lazy to go inside and get something big and bulky and come back out to the trailer.

                            Oh Yeah!

                            Oh Yeah! I guess it would depend on the size of generator that my trailer has. Hmmm...
