As the temperatures fall over winter, keeping mould and mildew away from your boat cabin can become an uphill battle. This is where a dehumidifier comes in. A boat dehumidifier is an indispensable tool for your boat during winter as it will keep mould and mildew away by maintaining a set level of humidity.

What are the benefits of a boat dehumidifier?

Boat dehumidifiers have many benefits, here are four standout features:
- Improves air quality.
- Prevents window condensation.
- Prevents the growth of mould, mildew and bacteria.
- Removes humidity.

What is a desiccant dehumidifier?

Desiccant dehumidifiers use a material which absorbs water from the air, eradicating moisture. Unlike compressor dehumidifiers, boat dehumidifiers can operate in temperatures as low as 1C. Desiccant dehumidifiers are also much more efficient than their compressor counterparts, achieving better results over a shorter period of time.

Is a boat dehumidifier necessary?

A boat dehumidifier is certainly necessary over the colder months to ensure your boat will stay free of mould. You can of course open windows or use an extractor fan to refresh the air, but the air that comes in will be cold - so you may struggle to stay warm (unless you layer up with plenty of clothing!). By having a dehumidifier on board, you can keep your boat free of mould and moisture, whilst maintaining a comfortable temperature.

Should I use a dehumidifier on my boat?

Yes, you should certainly use a dehumidifier on board your boat. In our opinion, they are the most effective way to keep moisture under control and damp away throughout the colder winter months. Furthermore, nowadays many dehumidifiers are fully automated and capable of continuous operation, so can be left to do their job without the need for constant checking, which is not the case with (for example) a boat moisture absorber.
