Owning a classic car is much like owning a piece of history – its value goes far beyond finances. With many physical and functional features threatened by rust, mould and corrosion, preservation through dehumidification is imperative to remove harmful moisture from the air.
There are so many elements that can cause cosmetic and mechanical damage to irreplaceable classic cars. Dust, dirt and even sunlight all play their part in deterioration during storage, but it may come as a surprise to some that the number one cause of deterioration is unregulated humidity levels. Counteracting this takes more than just wax and polish.
Although temperature control is important, simply heating your garage or storage facility won’t remove the moisture in the air or stop it from condensing on cars. On the opposite end of the humidity scale, the atmosphere will become too dry, creating another set of problems for your facility.
There are many factors to consider before determining the best Dantherm dehumidifier for your garage.
We recommend the CDF Range of Dehumidifiers that protect classic cars.
The CDF 10 dehumidifier is fully automatic with electronic control and a built-in, adjustable hygrostat. A clear display indicates the dehumidifier’s current status of the operation. Defrosting is incorporated in the electronic control.
The CDF range of dehumidifiers operates at temperatures down to 3°C, where the electronic control switches off the dehumidifier.
