Vertical dehumidifiers can be an excellent means of controlling moisture-related growths, such as mold and mildew, eliminating unpleasant odors, and improving indoor air quality. This holds true both in residential and commercial applications.

At the Dehumidifier Corporation of America (DCA), our commercial/industrial dehumidifier options come in two basic categories: horizontal and vertical air flow configuration. Each configuration has its unique advantages. Usually our clients choose between the two based on such factors as the size of their mechanical room/equipment room and the orientation of the existing duct work.

In cases where we provide a replacement dehumidifier, a horizontal dehumidifier would generally replace an old horizontal unit, and a vertical dehumidifier would replace an old vertical unit. Physical space constraints play a significant role in deciding between these two categories. For example, horizontal dehumidifiers are wider than vertical units, but require less head space. In contrast, vertical units leave a smaller footprint but are much taller than their horizontal counterparts.
