How to Deal With All the Moisture – Inofia 30 Pint Dehumidifier

Many parts of the country have seen unprecedented precipitation, whether in the form of snow, ice or rain. Southern California has been no exception. We are wallowing in wonder with an abundance of flowers, and folks are rushing to see the ‘super bloom.’ We had a glorious invasion of butterflies for several days.

Superbloom in our backyard.

But some folks are experiencing a rise in allergy symptoms, and folks are dealing with greater humidity in places they don’t want it. No matter how tightly the house or apartment is built, unwanted moisture can wreak havoc over time. We noticed some nasty mold gathering on leather shoes, for instance.

As is increasingly the case everywhere, there is too much water in certain places and not enough in others.

I had the opportunity to test the Inofia 30 Pint Dehumidifier, and I was very pleased with the ease of use, thoughtful design and effectiveness.

Pulling four gallons of moisture from the air on a daily basis is a great benefit in an enclosed area not set up for ideal air flow. Handling a space up to 1056 square feet, the unit is ideal for bathrooms, basements and garages. We placed ours in our master closet, with good results.

The out of the box operation is as simple as possible, truly a plug and play design. The water collection port is easily accessible on the back side. Also available is a continuous drain hose option, if your situation allows. We don’t have a drain in our closet, so the hose option will wait for another location.

After our first 24 hours of use, the unit’s automatic shut down feature indicated the water tank was full. I dutifully recycled the water in house plants, and easily restored the tank. The unit started back up, already pulling in more ambient moisture. The floating bobber in the tank stops the functionality, with a red alert light on the upper control panel signaling status.

The control panel also features a timer function, but after several days of use I like the ‘always on’ functionality. Evening water dispersal is becoming a satisfying ritual.

The sturdy construction and intelligent design by Inofia allow for a variety of indoor applications.

With a 60 day money back guarantee and an affordable price of less than $160, the Inofia is a great solution for a very relevant problem.
