When Gary Burke took over the PHJ Services business in 2000, dehumidifiers were just starting to be used to dry carpet and building structures. It was American technology and very few restorers had them.
In the past, everyone understood that air movement caused evaporation. The problem with this was that the air can only hold so much moisture and when it reaches due point, you can have as much air movement as you like, but you’re just spreading the moisture around.
Dehumidifiers actually dry the air and allow the air movement to collect more moisture out of the carpet and the structure.
Most portable dehumidifiers were refrigerant based. This means they had a limitation depending on their size and a limitation on when they could work. Over a certain relative humidity and again depending on the size of the humidifier and if it’s refrigerant or non-refrigerant, that figure varied, but it would get to a certain level when it couldn’t perform any further.
New technology has been introduced in the form of desiccant dehumidifiers, it’s completely different to the refrigerant basis, which is relying on moisture condensation on a condenser and then collecting in a pool and being shuffled out into a waste bucket.
Desiccant dehumidifiers actually dry the air as it goes through a cylinder, it will work in far lower humidity or relative humidity than refrigerant dehumidifiers and therefore they are a lot more efficient. Naturally they are more expensive but if one desiccant dehumidifier can take the place of 10 to 15 refrigerant dehumidifiers, you still have better cost efficiency.
