    DryWave Boat Dryer Resources

    To help you understand why, where and when to use the DryWave boat air dryer, we have put together some helpful information to answer these questions.

    Q. What do DryWave Air Dryers do?
    The DryWave warms and dries the air to prevent condensation from forming and leading to mold or mildew on surfaces in enclosed spaces.

    Q. How do DryWave Air Dryers work?
    The DryWave begins working once it is plugged in. The heating element inside the unit will begin to warm the air around the DryWave.

    Q. When should I use a DryWave Air Dryer?
    Use the DryWave during fall, winter and spring months when humidity is high and temperatures are between 32ºF and 65ºF.

    Q. Will DryWave Air Dryers work in hot and humid climates?
    The combination of high humidity and high temperature reduce the effectiveness of the DryWave, and operation in higher temperatures can lead to overheating of the unit.

    Q. What other applications can I use DryWave Air Dryers for?
    The DryWave can be used inside your home, cabin, RV, Car, Truck, airplane or helicopter. The DryWave 100 is good for use in gun safes, equipment lockers, closets and small compartments.

    Q. Do I need more than one DryWave Air Dryer?
    DryWaves are designed for use in spaces up to 1,000 cubic feet. Having two or more can be more effective for large areas. The DryWave 100 is designed for spaces up to 100 cubic feet.

    Q. Can I leave my DryWave Air Dryer on while I’m away?
    The DryWave was designed with a low wattage heating unit and no moving parts, which make it safe to operate for extended periods of time unattended.

    Q. What about overheating?
    There is a thermal cut-off switch that will allow the unit to cool to a normal operating temperature should it overheat for any reason. Once normal operating temperature has been reached the switch will automatically reset and turn the unit back on.

    Q. Where should I place the DryWave?
    The location for your DryWave should be chosen carefully. Always away from possible fire hazards and there needs to be unrestricted air flow to the unit.

    Q. How much power do DryWave Air Dryers use?
    The DryWave uses about as much power as a household light bulb.

    Q. Is the DryWave Air Dryer safe to touch while plugged in?
    It is not recommended that you touch the DryWave while plugged in. DryWaves are safe to touch but still can cause burns if overheated.

    Q. Why does my DryWave Air Dryer have a strange odor when I first plug it in?
    If it is the first time you are using your DryWave this is normal and will go away after a few hours of operation. If the odor persists then unplug the unit and contact whomever you purchased it from.

    The DryWave is a great unit to have for preventing mold and mildew from forming in your boat, RV, cabin or home by drying the air. When air comes in contact with a surface that is at or below its Dew Point temperature, condensation will form on that surface. The DryWave is a product designed to prevent water condensation from forming by drying the air and warming the temperature to above the dew point within a given space.

    The DryWave is effective in spaces up to 1,000 cubic feet. This means that when you are not using your boat, and have it docked or on a trailer, you can be confident that when you are ready to use your boat again you will not have to worry about cleaning all that pesky mold and mildew. The same ideas apply to a RV, small cabin, or rooms in a home. When you are not using these, they can be subject to moisture accumulation due to lack of ventilation; with that and colder temperatures, condensation is likely to occur.

    People interested in the benefits of the DryWave should recognize that the climate where they live will have an impact on the effectiveness of the DryWave’s ability to prevent mold and mildew formation. Due to the fact that some climates are more humid than others the DryWave may not be as effective when used. On the other hand in places where the humidity is higher for only a portion of the year the DryWave can act as a deterrent for mold formation. The relative humidity plays a crucial role to the formation of mold and mildew in spaces. The relative humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air, which will influence the dew point, or temperature that condensation forms on surfaces. By keeping the temperature above the dew point, and not allowing moisture to build up on surfaces, the chances of mold or mildew forming are reduced.

    In the Pacific Northwest and similar cool, damp climates the DryWave is very useful. During fall, winter and spring when humidity is high and temperatures cool, conditions are perfect for the growth of mold and mildew. The DryWave has been developed to help control moisture issues in places where the dew point temperature can be close to the air temperature. The DryWave works by raising the temperature in an enclosed space, lowering the relative humidity and eliminating condensation. Drywave air dryers work best when the temperature range is above freezing and below 65 degrees. While areas like the Gulf coat and Florida frequently have problems with mold, even in the summer. The combination of high humidity and high temperature reduce the effectiveness of the DryWave, and operation in higher temperatures can lead to overheating of the unit.

    The DryWave was designed with a low wattage heating unit and no moving parts, which make it safe to operate for extended periods of time, even when unattended. The DryWave was designed to slowly and safely raise the air temperature in an enclosed space, which means drafty areas will reduce its effectiveness.

    The DryWave is very easy to use and safe. Before using make sure that air flow around the unit is unrestricted and unobstructed. Choose your location carefully, away from possible fire hazards. Simply plug the DryWave into a standard household outlet (110-120 volts AC) to begin using. The DryWave is “on” whenever it is plugged into a power source. The DryWave has been engineered to operate 24 hours a day and to be left for long periods of time. There is a thermal cut-off switch that will allow the unit to cool to a normal operating temperature should it overheat for any reason. Once normal operating temperature has been reached the switch will automatically reset and turn the unit back on.

    • Dry Wave: Do no obstruct the air inflow areas (near the bottom of the case), or the holes on the top of the case. At minimum, 24 inches should be left clear to the sides and above the unit.

    • Airflow around the DryWave™ must be unobstructed for proper operation. Do not place items on or next to the DryWave™.
    • In order for the drying process to work properly, the DryWave™ must be used right side up with no obstructions within 24 inches of the sides and top (for example, don’t use the DryWave™ in the extreme corner of a room). Choose your location carefully, away from possible fire hazards and obstructions. This is particularly important when the DryWave™ will be left on while unattended. Only use on a flat, level surface. Do not use on top of blankets, long carpet, or any other material, which may restrict airflow into or out of the case.
    • After properly located, plug the cord into a standard household outlet (110-120 volts AC). The cord must be arranged so that it cannot be pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally.
    • The DryWave™ is “on” whenever it is plugged into a power source. There is no external power switch and the DryWave™ is silent while operating. The unit will take several minutes to radiate warmth.

    • In some cases, you might detect a slight odor the first time you use the Dry Wave™ or The DryWave 100. This is a common occurrence for many small heating appliances. Any odor you detect upon first use is harmless and should dissipate after several hours of use.
    • When you’re finished using the Dry Wave™, simply unplug it from the wall outlet. Allow the unit to fully cool before touching, moving, or storing.

    The DryWave™ requires no maintenance. It should be kept dust free for best operation.
