Where and how do you use a dehumidifier?
"These units are best placed in rooms that have a lack of moisture or ventilation," Appliances Online category expert Colin says, "On high humidity days, you may want to consider using these between 10 to 12 hours a day, even 24/7 if your unit has the capacity".
"Most dehumidifiers use little power, which will allow you to operate these for long periods of time. Having a unit such as a portable dehumidifier will help in protecting parts of your home and clothing."
