How many of you have used a dehumidifier??

I'm planning to buy one tomorrow. We scraped our walls down and sprayed them with that glass layer so the wall won't get moldy. We had a huge problem. Anyway does a dehumidifier really work to prevent it? It's too cold to keep the windows opened and thats all i've been doing. they've been opened all week.

  • You have to watch dehumidifiers in the cold because they will freeze up. Yes, ours keeps molds away in the warmer months, but we turn them off in the winter when the air is dryer.

  • we used to have one in a place we rented. it had a bucket that we had to empty... it was crazy to see the amount of water it took out of the air in just a day. mold is very dangerous, i would make the investment in one if my home needed it.
