Enter the total volume (ft^3) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Dehumidifier Capacity.

## Dehumidifier Capacity Formula

DHC = V / 60 * 3

Variables:

- DHC is the Dehumidifier Capacity (SCFM)
- V is the total volume (ft^3)

To calculate Dehumidifier Capacity, divide the total volume by 60, then multiply by 3.

## How to Calculate Dehumidifier Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Dehumidifier Capacity.

- First, determine the total volume (ft^3).
- Next, gather the formula from above = DHC = V / 60 * 3.
- Finally, calculate the Dehumidifier Capacity.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total volume (ft^3) = 300,000

## Frequently Asked Questions

**What is Dehumidifier Capacity?**

Dehumidifier Capacity, measured in Standard Cubic Feet per Minute (SCFM), refers to the amount of air a dehumidifier can treat by removing moisture within a minute.

**Why is it important to calculate the correct Dehumidifier Capacity?**

Calculating the correct Dehumidifier Capacity ensures efficient moisture removal, prevents mold and mildew growth, and maintains a comfortable indoor humidity level.

**Can I use the same formula for any room size?**

Yes, the formula DHC = V / 60 * 3 can be used for any room size. However, it’s important to accurately measure the room’s total volume (ft^3) for precise calculations.

**How often should I check or replace my dehumidifier to maintain its capacity?**

Regular maintenance, such as cleaning filters and checking for leaks, should be performed every few months. Replacement depends on the dehumidifier’s performance and age, but typically, a dehumidifier can last 3-5 years with proper care.
