What is a CADPXS commercial dehumidifier?

If you look into dehumidifiers in-depth, you will come across three general categories: Household, Commercial, and Industrial. As you can imagine, residential units do not have to have the same processing power as commercial units, so they tend to be smaller, quieter, and cheaper. They often have a sleek design, so they do not look completely out of place in the home.

When it comes to dehumidifiers, the terms "commercial" and "industrial" are often used interchangeably, as these models overlap in terms of features, design and performance. Unlike their residential counterparts, which are made of lightweight plastic, commercial dehumidifiers are made of steel or heavy-duty plastic. As a result, they are more durable, larger, and more expensive than their residential counterparts.

Does this mean you can not use a commercial dehumidifier at home? Not necessarily, although some may think buying a commercial unit for a single home is overkill. However, if you have a large enough home that is constantly exposed to high humidity and extreme temperatures, it might be worth it to purchase a dehumidifier for your home. If you can afford it and tolerate the noise, a commercial dehumidifier would be the best choice. Keep in mind that commercial dehumidifiers are also a better choice if your home has an indoor pool or very damp crawl space or basement.

Factors to consider when buying the best commercial dehumidifier

When looking for the perfect commercial dehumidifier for your needs, there are a few features you should look for in your unit.


Capacity is the amount of moisture a dehumidifier can pull out of the air per day and is usually measured in pints. If you have a large commercial space, you should look for a dehumidifier with a capacity of at least 50 to 70 pints. Anything less than that may not be sufficient for your needs. If so, you'll need to buy multiple units or constantly move the unit around to keep the humidity at a satisfactory level.

Built-in hygrostat

It is important to know the exact humidity level in your home, as this is the only way to know whether the dehumidifier is working or not. Therefore, one of the most important features of the best commercial dehumidifiers is a built-in hygrostat.

Works at low temperatures

Large, empty spaces like warehouses are not usually heated during the colder months. Unfortunately, some of the best dehumidifiers stop operating at certain temperatures. So look for Energy Star models that will still function at temperatures below 32 degrees Celsius.

Automatic drainage

We all have hectic lives. So it does not fit into our list of priorities to keep checking if the water tank is full. Make sure you look for units that have a drain that allows the dehumidifier to work continuously without you having to worry too much about it.

Quality of the material

As mentioned earlier, a commercial dehumidifier is made of either steel or durable plastic. However, some manufacturers cut corners by making dehumidifiers out of low-quality, lightweight plastic. Do not mind the higher cost of a quality product - it will pay off in the long run.

Noise level

The noise level of a dehumidifier for industrial use can be loud enough to be annoying. So look for a unit that operates quietly if you think that's important.

Types of commercial dehumidifiers

As you already know, dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air and help control humidity levels in a given space. However, what you may not know is that they can differ in the way they do this. There are two main categories of commercial dehumidifiers, differentiated by the technology used: Desiccant or Cooling Coil.

Desiccant dehumidifier

Desiccant dehumidifiers reduce moisture in the air bypassing the air through a rotor that contains a water-binding material called a desiccant. The most common desiccant used in dehumidifiers is silica gel, which is technically not a gel but a porous and granular configuration of silica. The unique structure of silica gel allows it to absorb moisture.

The desiccants absorb the water from the air passing through the rotor, and the dried air is blown back into the building. The water collected by the dehumidifier in its desiccant wheel is removed by evaporating the water from the silica and then passing it out of the building through ducts.

Refrigerant Dehumidifier

Refrigerant dehumidifiers are the most common type of commercial dehumidifier and work by condensing moisture in the air. The moist air is drawn in from the environment and fed into the dehumidifier. It is then passed over evaporator coils that cool the air, causing water vapor to condense. The condensed water from the cold coils drips into a collection container or through a drain hose, which automatically drains the water from the dehumidifier.

In many cases, we have to consider the applicable space and dehumidification capacity of the dehumidification equipment, because if it is too small, it means that the desired effect will not be achieved, and if it is too large, it may increase the cost of electricity. So it is important to make the right choice.

Noise is a very important issue that we must consider when using electrical equipment, because excessive noise will not only affect our mood, but also cause great obstacles to our work.
