Post-Flood-Mould

A great article here from The Conversation all about post-flood and water damage mould - very timely in light of the recent Townsville floods. You'll find some great tips about treating these mould issues, along with related health concerns and how to protect yourself through the process. Thanks guys!

Fungi after the floods: how to get rid of mould to protect your health

As we know, another excellent tool for mould remediation and really drying out those affected rooms post-flood is a high-quality Dehumidifier. We wrote a handy article a little while back that is still very relevant on how to use a dehumidifier to treat indoor water damage. You can check it out here:

A Dehumidifier for Soap Making?

Soap-Making-Dehumidification

We're always very excited to hear of new and interesting uses for our dehumidifiers and today we got a great one!

Linda Lasker of Lather With Linda is using our highly-rated NWT Medium 20L Dehumidifier during the curing process of her wonderful handmade natural Castile soaps. Linda uses our dehumidifier to keep the room humidity levels low while her soaps are curing. Linda tells us that this can reduce the overall curing time by approximately two weeks in our humid Queensland climate. How interesting!

Thank you for letting us know about this Linda, great stuff! If anyone else out there has an interesting use for our dehumidifiers or air purifiers, please tell us all about it.

If you're in the greater Brisbane area, make sure to take a look at Linda's "Lather With Linda" Facebook page. She does a great job. Lovely to see someone following their passion. We are happy to hear that Linda's soaps are mild and gentle, (with no chemicals or artificial agents) great for those with skin sensitivities and also great for pets!

Made with extra virgin olive oil and drizzle of extra virgin coconut oil to give lather and longevity and a dash of raw honey (harvested locally). Unscented, Lavender pure essential oil bars and Lemon pure essential oil bars. Extremely good value and eco-friendly, biodegradable and great for those who enjoy camping and the outdoors. Linda is based in the Jindalee, QLD area and her products are available to pick up by appointment.

Thanks again Linda and a very happy new year to all of our Ausclimate friends out there!

Dry that Wet Weather Washing with your Dehumidifier

Rainy-Weather
Dry-Your-Laundry-In-The-Damp-Weather

With all of the rain that we've been getting in the last few days, drying that laundry can prove quite the challenge. It's times like this when your Ausclimate dehumidifier can be your best friend!

Whether one of our NWT compressor dehumidifiers or one of our Ausclimate Cool-Seasons dehumidifiers, simply set your dehumidifier up in a small, closed off room with your wet washing on a clothes horse and let it do it's magic. It will suck the moisture right out of those clothes and is actually more economical than your standard clothes-dryer.

As an added tip, do your best to make sure that the room is closed off (i.e. closed windows and doors) and empty your dehumidifier tank as required. Such a relief to finally get some dry washing on these damp and dreary days!

As always, please get in touch if you have any questions. Always here to help!

Compressor vs Desiccant Dehumidifier Comparison Guide

With the introduction of our Cool-Seasons Desiccant Dehumidifier range, some of us might be a little confused whether a Cool-Seasons Desiccant or a classic NWT Compressor Dehumidifier is the right choice. So we decided to put together this handy little guide to help you work out which might be right for you.

Compressor vs Desiccant:an unbiased view (we sell both!)

Compressor dehumidifiers (also called refrigerant) have been used to dry out our homes for more than 40 years. Over this period, they have performed very well, building a reputation as a reliable energy efficient method of removing large volumes of excess moisture.

However, Desiccant-type dehumidifiers are also becoming quite popular in Australia.

So, how do you choose – ‘Compressor’ or ‘Desiccant’ dehumidifier?

In general terms, the Compressor dehumidifier still retains the position as top performer, particularly when the indoor temperature is around 20°C or above.

But if your indoor temperature is consistently below 20°c, then consider the Desiccant dehumidifier as a great option. They may be rated as having a lower overall moisture removal capacity, but they really do perform well at their rated capacity in those lower winter temperatures.

Compressor Desiccant Comparison Chart


Selecting the right model will depend on why you want to use it, when you use it, how you use it and where you live in Australia.

Why

Most of our customers purchase dehumidifiers to stop moisture related problems such as mould, dust-mites, condensation and musty odours etc.

Some of the issues are property related: protection of our valued and treasured possessions such as furnishing, clothing, footwear, camera equipment, electronics, etc.

Other issues are health related – a strong need to stop allergens such as mould and dust-mites before they grow, breed and then become airborne and affect our family’s health.


When

“When is the best time to dry the home – wait for winter”?

No, don’t wait for winter. Most homes get a build-up of indoor moisture through the summer and autumn months. So, we suggest you get started early; remove all that excess moisture in the warmer months and then do follow-up drying through your wetter/colder months of winter.

Having said that, some parts of Australia have wet summer months and dry winter months – keep reading for more help.


How

“How do you use a dehumidifier”?

You might be surprised that you do not have to run the dehumidifier every day to combat these common problems. Turning your dehumidifier on just once a week or so is generally enough to manage it. BUT, make sure to do the deep-down ‘structural’ drying first.


Where

So, now that we’ve discussed the WHY, the WHEN, the HOW, we can now help you decide the right type of dehumidifier for your area in Australia:

*Sydney, Northern NSW, WA, NT & QLD

An Ausclimate NWT Compressor Dehumidifier type may be the preferred option for these areas because of high rainfall season of summer and autumn.

*As example: even though Sydney has its fair share of rain in winter, it’s often during the warmer wet months that moisture builds up in the home. Then, why do you notice the excess moisture in winter and not the previous months?

Why?… because, as it becomes colder we tend to close our doors and windows: therefore, trapping the excess built up of moisture inside the home. Once we turn the heater on, mould starts appearing, windows have condensation and that musty odour is back.

If you keep your home dry during the previous wetter months, it’s quite likely you won’t see such a problem the following winter.

Melbourne, VIC, Southern NSW, Tasmania & SA

An Ausclimate Cool-Seasons Desiccant Dehumidifier type of dehumidifier may be the preferred option because these are typically cooler climates where the moisture problems are more confined to the winter months.

Generally, in the southern States, indoor room temperatures are consistently cooler than our northern neighbours: therefore, an Ausclimate Cool-Seasons Desiccant type dehumidifier may be the better option.

Others areas around Australia

The above regions all have areas that don’t fit nicely with the above options. There will be many areas where either Compressor or Desiccant or both may operate very effectively. Consider issue other issues such as local geography, elevation, bushland, shade, air movement, winds/breezes and of distance from the coast. These are all factors that influence your choice, including the architecture of your own home.

Also, it is important to note that it is the indoor room temperature and not the outside temperature that has a large bearing on selecting the right type of dehumidifier. Do you generally use a heater when operating a dehumidifier? Or would you consider using a Compressor dehumidifier with a heater option, such as the NWT All-Seasons 35L Compressor Dehumidifier.

A fair bit to think about!


If you’re still not quite sure, make it easy for yourself & talk to an Ausclimate industry-expert.
