Why the need for a dehumidifier?
Huge costs are incurred every year through inflated building maintenance costs and damaged inventory as a result of dampness. ALORAIR dehumidifiers are effective solutions to environmental control problems. Excess humidity in your premises results in corrosion, mold growth, and condensation. By installing an ALORAIR dehumidifier controlled humidity conditions can be maintained to provide protection in larger commercial areas and buildings.


Proper Use and Maintenance
Every dehumidifier needs proper usage and maintenance to support its long-lasting capability. Here are some safety tips for using and maintaining it:
· Before using it, keep it steady in an upright position for about 30 minutes to allow the refrigerant and other internal components to settle
· If the unit is newly delivered, let it settle for about 12 hours before using it
· Make sure that your desired area is well-sealed by either shutting all windows, vents or using other barriers
· It must be connected to a grounded electric source to avoid accidents and damage
· Make sure you have the right power supply to avoid electrical issues
· It is not suggestible to use an extension cord as well as a power adaptor
· Use the control panel or remote to set your desired level of humidity
· The surface in which it is set to operate must be leveled and steady
· Do not position the discharge and inlet onto a wall
· Never tamper with the internal components while the unit is running
· Always maintain a 6ft. distance from any form of obstruction
· Avoid deploying it in areas with a high amount of corrosive materials
· Make sure to properly unplug it before deploying it to another area
· Never leave it plugged when not in use
· When cleaning, use a damp cloth dipped in mild soap solution in wiping its exterior
· Remember to check the inlet and outlet for any blockages
· Annually check up the coils for maintenance
· You may use a foaming coil cleaner for cleaning the coils
· Confirm that the cords are cleaned from any debris and are properly wrapped and secured for storage
· Make sure to properly dry it before storing
· If the unit gets flooded, make sure you completely let it dry by carefully opening it before attempting to reconnect it
· Seek professional help for other complex issues
· Never use the unit as a support or stepping stool when reaching high items

Make sure to read the manual and all other guides before using your dehumidifier, or any product for that matter. It is always better to be equipped with all essential information beforehand to reduce the risk of accidents and mishaps.

For whatever cleaning and restoration need you have at hand, or preparing for in the future, we can surely provide you with the equipment that is most suitable for you. Here at AlorAir, we take pride in providing only the best that this industry can offer.

How the Alorair Storm Elite Works

Alorair Storm Elite is fitted with a humidity level sensing device called a humidistat. The purpose of the feature is to automatically detect when your space needs drying. Once the air conditions fall outside the specs set on the humidistat, the machine automatically draws air across the evaporator coils. The coil cools the air and condenses it into a liquid form. In a continuous process, the air is passed over a dry and hot coil before it is pumped back into the space around the room.

Great dehumidifier!
By 'Nick', Reviewed on January 07, 2022
I bought this dehumidifier for my restaurant and its amazing! In a 2,500 square feet space, it removes so much moisture from the air. In addition, it is heavy duty with low noise level and easy to use. I 100% recommend this.
Excellent Commercial Dehumidifier
By 'Dawn', Reviewed on January 06, 2022
We purchase this unit for the damp area. Set up was super simple, and the unit itself is very solid. Air circulation is powerful. We are delighted with our purchase. We had household dehumidifiers running before this purchase & they did not improve the humidity levels at all. This unit is a winner!
Works Awesome!
By 'Cyril', Reviewed on January 05, 2022
Well worth the money. The other dehumidifier I had was about $250 and would take about a gallon of water per day out of the air in my basement. I thought it was working well. We noticed mold in some damp spots in the basement and figured we need to go all out. We bought this unit and in the first 36 hours it took 9 gallons of water out of the air! I had it draining into a five gallon pail so I could keep an eye on it so that amount is accurate. Amazing! If feels so much better down there now! A must buy. Just break down and buy it! Its a lot to spend but what an unbelievable difference.
Work quiety and humidity under control again
By 'Vivian', Reviewed on January 04, 2022
Great dehumidifier, it worked wonderfully after we have a tropical storm put 6" of water in our basement ( which usually does not flood). Which flooded right we got this dehumidifier. And it also keeps our normally damp & humid basement dry. I would recommend it to everyone with a damp basement.
Great Dehumidifier!

I own a restoration company, and I bought this dehumidifier in crawlspaces because of its size. I was pleasantly surprised at the pints per day it removes and will be using it on all projects. I highly recommend this product and will be buying more in the future!
Works well!

The units are all amazing! I use a lot of dehumidifiers in my restoration line of work. I love this newest one that I just purchased, and the unit has built-in wheels for easy transport and wifi so I can control the unit from afar. Alorair machines are seriously all built like tanks (really). They do a fantastic job keeping the humidity right where I need it. It is easy to set up and easy to use, and it works well so far.
Highly recommend it!
By 'Dylan Peg', Reviewed on October 18, 2021
I started using it coup weeks ago to keep up with the humidity in the shop. It seems to be working well and is relatively quiet until now, so I have no doubts so far that it will do the job! It is still working fantastically. I've had zero issues so far! We've lost power a few times, and it always starts itself right back up where I had it set at. This dehumidifier works so great and is so easy to use. On wheels, so you can move anywhere you want. It gets the job done! Overall this is a perfect product, and I highly recommend it.
Great versatile product for the money!
By 'Kirk Luke', Reviewed on October 15, 2021
My house has pine trees along the south side of it, and pine trees draw moisture, not to mention no sun on that side either. So my home is very damp. I have purchased small space dehumidifiers that work well, but the constant dumping of their small reservoirs gets old quickly. I decided to make the jump to a high-capacity unit, and I picked the right one! Game over! No more dumping water, and this thing were easy to set up. After the first 3 hours of running, I could feel the difference in the air—dryer and fresher. I cannot wait to see a difference in my allergies too! Mold is one of my allergy triggers. Great versatile product for the money!
Love it!
By 'Jamie', Reviewed on October 14, 2021
I seriously love this dehumidifier. Living in Georgia, humidity control is a nightmare. We originally purchased a small dehumidifier, and the humidity in our home only got below 50% once in the three weeks we had it running continuously. This piece of technology has changed our lives. We are not afraid to mold, and this gives us total peace of mind. Our favorite feature will automatically turn on when too high humidity turns off at our desired level. Get one, and you won't regret it.
Highly recommend it!
By 'Rupert', Reviewed on October 11, 2021
A friend of mine purchased this dehumidifier and told me to give it a try. Straight out of the box, you could tell it was a quality machine by the way it was wrapped and labeled. You can set your humidity levels, mode settings. It runs very quietly and has made a big difference in the moisture level in my basement. When I first turned it on, the moisture level in the room was at 85%. After using it for a few days, the level has dropped to approximately 40%. It draws the moister from the room, and I don’t smell the musky odor that I have had in the past.
