On top of the storms, it’s also naturally more humid near bodies of water, especially the ocean
I spent a number of years saving money left plus right to purchase a trip house for winters. A lot of people have homes on the beach to stay in while in the frosty winters in the northern midwest, plus I wanted to be part of that club myself. However, getting a property near the beach, let alone directly on the beach, is easier said than done. I had to patiently wait for the best option to come along because the prices on most of the condos I saw were far beyond even my most liberal of budgets. When I finally came across the listing for the home I’m living in right now, I was absolutely ecstatic! It was within my budget plus the seller absolutely accepted my first offer. I was sure that things would be perfect, but I wasn’t considering the effects of the environment I was moving myself into. It’s nice living on a beach for obvious reasons, but there are downsides as well. For one, hurricanes are a dire threat every year from June until early December. I have to be vigilant plus have supplies ready in case one develops off the coast at the last hour. On top of the storms, it’s also naturally more humid near bodies of water, especially the ocean. When I measured the humidity inside at 58%, I realized that I would need a dehumidifier to keep fungal spores from propagating indoors. The dehumidifier comes with the added expense of the electricity needed to run it, but that advantages far outweigh the impasses in my mind.
