Things are changing for boats, caravans, holiday home and classic car storage. Recently, a £1m yacht caught fire due to an electrical fault with a home dehumidifier that was being used on the boat to keep it dry.
The insurance company made a ruling regarding domestic electrical appliances used with high value items namely a home dehumidifier should not be used for boats, garages, holiday homes and classic car where they are used to protect high value items. In short don’t use a domestic appliance where a commercial unit is needed.
A home dehumidifier was never designed to work 24/7 unattended. Only industrial grade units with specifically designed safety features are designed to run all day every day. If a dehumidifier is designed to be used for home use only check your insurance policy before putting it next to your treasured boat.
