My family & I live in the south, where the climate is constantly moderate & very humid! Both of us constantly worry about cooling our home, and the Summer rapidly changing temperatures are usually in the 90s, with a few afternoons in the triple digits as well, then our air conditioner works well, however the humidity makes things more difficult. Our air conditioner can only cool the air, it cannot remove any excess humidity, and when the humidity levels are high, our house does not feel cool & comfortable like it should, my family & I noticed some complications with humidity in the kitchen. Both of us even noticed some mold forming under the sink. My friends suggested purchasing a dehumidifier to help remove extra humidity from our home. My wife & I went to the hardware store to search for a dehumidifier. Both of us found 3 or many dehumidifiers in our price range. My wife & I chose a nice portable dehumidifier that has a reservoir, and as it pulls excess humidity out of the air, the moisture builds up in a tank. The reservoir tank needs to be emptied every other day, in order to keep the dehumidifier working well. Ever since all of us added the dehumidifier, the indoor air pollen levels has been phenomenal. With less moisture in the air, our indoor air pollen levels feels much more cool & crisp. Even our flu symptoms are better. My wife has been sleeping better, & she doesn’t wake up in the middle of the night with a headache anymore. I haven’t noticed any new mold growth under the sink either. I’m really impressed with the function of this small machine.
