Keeping the dehumidifier filter clean will prevent the coils from freezing

There is a lot of home maintenance that is simple to overlook as a first time homeowner.

You should suppose to clean your windows at least once a year, but you might forget about your rain gutters and the importance of cleaning out any debris that accumulates.

If you have trees on your property, it’s important to clean your rooftop with a broom to unfasten any dead leaves or branches that could lead to rotting. These chores aren’t necessarily apparent to someone who hasn’t been taught about their significance from a parent or similar professor. If you buy a piece of technology that you’re not previously acquainted with, how are you supposed to suppose what to do unless you study the instruction and have existing experience? I figured that owning a dehumidifier would be mostly straightforward. I knew that the basket needed to be emptied whenever it filled with water. Until I could find a drainage idea with an exhaust hose, I simply emptied the internal basket twice a day. However, I was overlooking 1 key feature of our dehumidifier—the filter. I let the dehumidifier’s filter get plugged with dust and it was causing the evaporator coils to freeze over in low un-even temperatures. I found this out after asking Heating and Air Conditioning specialists on an internet forum. After turning off the dehumidifier, I unfastend the filter and cleaned it in our giant sink using diluted rubbing alcohol and a toothbrush. Since I do a lot of cooking, there are always cooking oils in our air. They cause the dust in our filters to get sticky, which is simple to unfasten with the diluted rubbing alcohol. Once the dust is unfastend, I hastily scrub it with soap and water before putting it back in the machine.
