Reduce humidity and save dollars on power bills

New energy efficient desiccant dehumidifier can halve relative humidity levels

The unusual high humidity of around 80 per cent currently being experienced in FNQ and set to continue, can be uncomfortable for most people.

While many will flick on an air conditioner when inside, if it’s just the humidity and not the heat that wants to be turned down, a dehumidifier could be the answer. Doing this can save considerable dollars on the power bill.

While dehumidifiers are great for comfort, they also inhibit mould and bacterial growth, which is a big help for allergy and asthma sufferers.

The new Vienne ION630 desiccant dehumidifier from health and wellness company, Andatech, delivers an impressive daily dehumidification rate of up to 10 litres a day. 

The unit can be set to dehumidify between 40 to 60 per cent relative humidity (RH) at increments of 5 per cent, which is a substantial reduction.

The Vienne has a power consumption level of 420-740W depending on the mode of operation, which is 20 to 40 per cent less than a portable air conditioner.

Suited for large areas up to 42 sqm, the Vienne also has a built-in negative ion generator that helps to freshen and balance the air, and has an antibacterial air filter.

One of the benefits of being a desiccant dehumidifier means that it is easy to maintain with no replaceable parts. It uses a zeolite desiccant that regenerates itself to continue dehumidifying. 

Emptying the large 4.2 litre water tank is easy thanks to some clever design features, which include a continuous drainage option whereby the supplied hose can take extracted water straight to a drainage source. 

Various safety features allow the Vienne ION360 to operate unattended, such as fall-down, tank-full and abnormal temperature detection, and unlike air conditioners, it does not emit greenhouse gases.

Other user benefits include a 12-hour timer, low noise levels of 35-46dB, and a carry handle to easily move it around the home. Measurements are: 520mm (H) x 379mm (W) x 239mm (D) and it weighs 7.5kg.  It comes with a one-year warranty and has an RRP of $549.
