Remember to Clean and Change Your Dehumidifier Air Filters

As the summer season approaches, thoughts easily and frequently turn to vacations, cottages, gardening and … replacing air filters!

OK, perhaps not the last one.

However, it should. Does your room air conditioner use an air filter? What about your central air conditioner? Ours does.

What about your dehumidifier?

Ours, the SaniDry dehumidifier, has both a washable as well as a disposable air filter.

Last year we wrote about our new SaniDry dehumidifier. It was installed for us by the nice folks at Clarke Basement Systems.

When it was installed new, here is what the washable and the disposable air filters looked like:

On year later, here is what they now look like:

Time for a change, don’t you agree?

So, I removed the black washable air filter and rinsed it off with luke warm water, letting it air dry outside.

Then Keith from Clarke Basement Systems dropped of a replacement air filter. You can see that this year they use a yellow fibre material in the picture below comparing the dirty one (on the right) from last year.

Then simply insert first the new replacement air filter into the area in the top of the SaniDry dehumidifier.

This was followed by of course inserting the now cleaned and dried washable air filter so it was back directly on top of the new disposable air filter.

Once both were pushed securely into the SaniDry dehumidifier, we were then ready for the summer humidity.

Remember, do replace any disposable air filters, clean any washable air filters, in your dehumidifiers. It will make them work less hard and thus use less electricity to save you money.

    This is a great home tip! In the spring and summer, I will even switch to a HEPA filter to lower the amount of allergens in my home. Allergies can get really bad in the spring and summer depending on where you live, so this is a great way to lessen the impact.
