Dehumidifiers play an important role in the removal of moisture, odours and bacteria from the surrounding air in your household. An Energy Star dehumidifier possesses more efficient refrigeration coils, compressors, and fans unlike conventional models.
This equates to lesser energy, by up to 15%, utilised to remove moisture. This energy saved can in fact power an Energy Star refrigerator for 5 months.
Some dehumidifiers that qualify for Energy-Star include the Frigidaire FAD704DUD and Frigidaire FAD504DUD. Dehumidfiers can also be separated into their capacity for water removal ranging from 30 to 70 pints.
