How to use the dehumidifier mode of heat pumps?

Kanartic heat pumps are all equipped with a dehumidification system.

To activate it, you must use air conditioning mode (COOL) or dehumidification mode (DRY)

The air conditioning mode (COOL) will cool the condensers of the indoor unit which will allow the humidity in the air to be captured by the condensation effect, this condensation will be evacuated through the drain when the accumulation becomes sufficient. Dehumidification is a very important process for air conditioning mode because it removes water particles from the air in order to obtain a cold and dry environment. This obviously takes some time, which is why you should not use a heat pump that is too strong for your space. Let's imagine that you have the air conditioning of a concert hall in your living room, this will have the effect of cooling very quickly without removing the humidity, the result will be very unpleasant of course.

The dehumidification (DRY) mode does not blow as much cold air...just enough to condense water particles from the air...the indoor unit then blows dry air. It is recommended not to dry the air too much, so use the timer function to dehumidify 2-3 hours a day.

Why install a heat pump in the cellar/basement?

  • Humidity can cause problems in your home and also for your health (mold, allergies, asthma, etc.).
  • A heat pump with a dehumidifier can help reduce humidity and improve air quality by drying it.
  • Be sure to maintain your heat pump to obtain optimal performance in all operating modes.

Why in the basement/cellar?

Cellars can be damp, which can cause problems for people as well as house structures. To combat this phenomenon, many cellars are equipped with dehumidifiers which allow the humidity level to be controlled.

More and more people are opting to install a heat pump in order to combine the two benefits of Heat and Dehumidification.

We heat the floor above and dry the air in the cellar at the same time.

To get the most out of your heat pump in dehumidifier mode, it is important to know how to use it correctly. Here are a few tips :

  • Direct the airflow downward for better air circulation.
  • Make sure the wall unit is clear.
  • If possible, open a window or door to help ventilate the room.
  • Adjust the humidity level according to your needs.
  • Make sure that the water flow is correctly positioned to avoid damage caused by the discharge of condensate.

By following these tips, you will be able to get the most out of your dehumidifier and keep your home comfortable and free of excessive humidity.
