Spring has arrived! And as the temperature rises, so does the humidity. Walls are covered in condensation and drying clothes never seem to dry. This means the wet season is upon us and this can be a nightmare for many people. When the humidity is really high, it’s not good for your health either. You’ll find yourself feeling tired, more prone to headaches and if you are in a damp and mouldy room, it could even increase the risk of asthma and eczema. To prevent this, you need a dehumidifier at home! With so many to choose from, you probably can’t decide which model to buy as many have similar features. So, let me show you how to pick the right one.

Dehumidifier Shopping Tips

Daily Dehumidifying Capacity

When buying a dehumidifier, the first thing you need to consider is its dehumidifying capacity! The higher the capacity, the stronger the dehumidifying power and the faster it dehumidifies. Each home requires a different capacity according to various factors including the size of the home, the storage space available, and the surrounding environment.

1. High dehumidifying capacity model

Suitable for users of large units or more humid environments (near sea or on mid-levels).

2. Low dehumidifying capacity model

Suitable for users of smaller areas (such as bedrooms) and environments with normal humidity。


Many areas in Hong Kong are very humid due to their geographical location especially the outlying islands and south eastern areas (such as Tseung Kwan O, Sai Kung, Island East, Island South, Tsing Yi). Refer to the following table to select the daily dehumidification capacity you need according to the size of your home and humidity level..

Water Tank Capacity

No matter which type of dehumidifier you choose, the water tank will need to be emptied from time to time for it to operate efficiently. Generally, water tank capacities range from 2 to 8 litres. The larger the tank capacity, the less often you need to empty it. So, if your home has high humidity and you don’t want to keep emptying the tank, then you should choose a model with a larger tank.

Extra Features

Besides dehumidifying power, some models have additional features. So you can choose the features most suitable according for your needs.

1. Intelligent Dehumidifying Control

This is more energy efficient as it auto-adjusts dehumidifying intensity to the optimum level according to the environment. Most dehumidifiers available at Fortress offer this function!

2. Fast Clothes and Shoe Drying Features

A number of dehumidifiers available at Fortress offer a fast clothes drying feature with some models offering additional smart clothes drying feature that can detect whether your clothes are dry according to the indoor humidity. Some models even come with a special Y-Hose to quick dry wet shoes or handbags!

3. Air Purifying Function

An air purifier and dehumidifier in one machine offers more convenience and saves space. Dehumidifiers with air purifying functions can be classified into two main types: ionic and filter.

(1) Ionic air purification
This generates negative ions to purify the air and kill germs and viruses. It can effectively remove moulds, musty smells and odors.

(2) Filter-type air purification
This helps to get rid of dust, particles and pollen in the air and keep your household air fresh and clean. Some models even filter bacteria and viruses!
The air purifying function of some models can operate independently which means it can be used as an air purifier during the dry season. Enjoy two functions in one machine to help you save money and space!
