Last week I was talking to my new neighbor and he has a little house across the street that is about 1/2 the size of my house. I was complaining about getting into a wet nightgown and into wet sheets and he said he had a large dehumidifier and he emptied the water reservoir a couple of times a day.
Now, I had purchased a small table top dehumidifier several weeks ago but it did not seem to do much so I broke down and got a 50 pint dehumidifier ~
Well, it works great!! The first day I had to empty the reservoir 2 times!! That is 100 pints of water!! Yikes!! One pint equals 2 cups!! That is a lot of water!!
I set it to 45% humidity and now I can get into a drier nightgown and dry sheets!! Hallelujah!!
So, I have been trying to decide what to do about the wet air coming into the windows through the bullet holes and I came up with a solution. When I first got here, I hung a shirt in the kitchen window, mainly to keep the cold air from coming in ~
You might remember this from a previous post. Well, I am happy to say, I now have bright flowers and hearts covering the holes in the windows all through the house!!
Now, we'll see if the dehumidifier has to work less and produces less water. I do take the water outside and water the lawn in the front yard!! Ya know, it is best to recycle!!
