The Sharp Plasmacluster Dehumidifer tackles moisture


If you’ve ever visited Japan, you’ll notice lots of laundry hanging outside of apartment buildings. It’s not that anyone is trying to show off their clothes, more that having a washer and dryer in your home doesn’t happen normally. For those that live there, this is a bit of a pain when it’s humid outside or raining, as you are only adding to the moisture in the air by hanging your clothes up to dry inside.

Keeping all of that in mind, having a dehumidifier around would be quite handy, especially like this Sharp Plasmacluster Dehumidifier. This uses positive and negative ion technology to not only get rid of moisture in your home more quickly, but will also cut down on the associated odors. You’ll be able to adjust the direction of the machine’s efforts by 180 degrees, and the filter is not only easy to clean, but exceedingly effective.

That all sounds good and well, but without knowing how effective it is, no one is going to jump at spending $530 on a whim. This can suck up 12 liters of moisture a day, and has timers for 2, 4, and 6 hours. It’s recommended for 204 square foot rooms, but can be used in rooms that are up to around 538 square feet. You will have to deal with some sound, but it will be slightly louder than a whisper, which shouldn’t cause too much stir.

  1. Even if this device works, if you have your windows open, you are going to have humid air coming much faster than you can dehumidify it.
