The dehumidifier must be operated in an enclosed area in order to be most effective. Close all doors and windows and other outside openings to the room, since the size of space in which the dehumidifier will operate effectively is greatly influenced by the rate at which new moisture enters the room. Your dehumidifier is designed to operate on ordinary household 110/120 volt 60-cycle alternating current. A 15 or 20 ampere fused separate circuit, serving only this appliance is required. When locating the dehumidifier, be sure that it is placed so there is no restriction to air flowing either into the coils at the rear or from the front grille. For the best performance, allow at least 12 inches of air space on the front and back. A dehumidifier operating in a basement will have little or no effect in drying an adjacent enclosed storage area, such as a closet, unless there is adequate circulation of air in and out of the area. It may be necessary to install a second dehumidifier inside the enclosed storage area for satisfactory drying action.
A humidistat (not used on all models) assures you of efficient, economical operation. This Humidity Control automatically starts the dehumidifier when the humidity is excessive, and shuts it off when the humidity is reduced to the position set on the Control. The control has an "OFF" position and the dial is infinitely adjustable to provide a "dryness" condition that suits your particular need.
