Dryer air makes it harder for mould and dust mites to grow. Less mould = fewer spores, fewer dust mites = less debris in the air. With fewer of these allergens in the air we are less likely to suffer hay fever like allergic reactions. Also drier air means there is less to condense on cold windows. The DD8L warms the air too, so is better at keeping condensation off windows nearby even when the central heating is switched off. It has been standard within the industry for desiccant dehumidifiers to always run their fan continuously, regardless of the relative humidity. They do this so that they can react to rises in relative humidity and start to dry the air again. This provides a level of accurate dehumidification that is over kill for domestic applications. The alternative provided by most compressor dehumidifiers is for the dehumidifier to turn off when the relative humidity target is reached. This saves energy but does mean that the dehumidifier potentially misses increases in relative humidity and could allow organic materials in the home to absorb the excess moisture and mould to grow.
