My family and I live in the south, where the climate is always warm and very humid. We constantly worry about cooling our home. The summer temperatures are usually in the 90s, with a few days in the triple digits as well. Our air conditioner works well, but the humidity makes things more difficult. Our air conditioner can only cool the air. It cannot remove any excess humidity. When the humidity levels are high, our house doesn’t feel cool and comfortable like it should. My family and I noticed some problems with humidity in the kitchen. We even noticed some mold forming under the sink. My friends suggested purchasing a dehumidifier to help remove extra humidity from our home. My wife and I went to the hardware store to search for a dehumidifier. We found three or four dehumidifiers in our price range. My wife and I chose a nice portable dehumidifier that has a reservoir. 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 we added the dehumidifier, the indoor air quality has been phenomenal. With less moisture in the air, our indoor air quality feels much more cool and crisp. Even my allergies are better. My wife has been sleeping better, and 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.
