Many homes have insulated ceilings which helps to keep rooms warm in the colder months, but this also means that most lofts and attics are colder than the rest of the building. If humid air makes its way into a loft space, condensation can form on the cold surfaces. Lofts can also contain more moisture if there is a water tank installed, if ventilation is poor, if there is a leak in the roof and if steam rises and seeps in from bathrooms below.
Trapped moisture in lofts and attics can lead to damp, mould growth, rot and bad odours. It can also affect items that are stored within, such as furniture, documents, electrical equipment, metal objects and more.
Loft dehumidifiers can effectively extract the excess moisture from the ambient air and remove it from the space, preventing the occurrence of condensation. We have an excellent range of desiccant dehumidifiers that are ideal for use in domestic and commercial lofts and attics. The Ecor Pro DH800 and DH1200 dehumidifiers work in very cold conditions, and they are compact and lightweight. They can be installed into confined spaces, so they are perfect for lofts, and they also work at any angle. These dehumidifiers are also ductable, so you can vent the vapour they extract directly out of the space.
We also have refrigerant dehumidifiers that are suitable for controlling moisture in lofts. The Dantherm CDF 10 and the Aerial AD110 are two compact, wall mounted dehumidifiers with excellent extraction capacities. If you need a more temporary drying solution, The EBAC CD35 and the Master DH 26 are both portable, with convenient handles and vast operating temperature ranges.
