Dehumidifiers are very helpful machines.
Dehumidifiers help to remove excess moisture in the air.
Excess moisture can cause problems for the air conditioning system and it can lead to problems like mold and mildew. I did not realize there was a leak under my sink until the bottom of the sink was starting to warp. I noticed the discoloration on the bottom of the wood and that’s when I discovered the leak. A plumbing company came to the house to help me repair the problem and after that they left a dehumidifier to get rid of the moisture under the sink. The dehumidifier was a small machine connected to a hose. The hose was getting rid of the moisture by dumping it down the sink. The dehumidifier had a gauge on top of the machine and it was for reading the amount of moisture in the air. When the dehumidifier was installed, the level of humidity under the sink was 80%. After 3 days, the level of humidity under the sink was 53%. The dehumidifier worked really well and it made me think about the fact that I could probably use some type of machine like that to help my air conditioner. The air conditioner struggles during the warmer summer months because there is so much outdoor and indoor humidity. When the dehumidifier was running in the kitchen, it was much more cool and crisp inside of the room. I’m very curious to see if the dehumidifier will help lower my electricity bills during the summer months when the air conditioner has to run so hard.
