I use a dehumidifier in my house to keep humidity inside below 50% year round

I spent a number of years saving money left as well as right to purchase a trip apartment for winters.

A lot of people have homes on the beach to stay in during the chilly winters in the northern midwest, as well as 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 opportunity 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 house I’m living in right now, I was absolutely ecstatic! It was within my budget as well as the seller certainly 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 apparent reasons, but there are setbacks as well. For 1, hurricanes are a drastic threat every year from June until early January. I have to be vigilant as well as have supplies ready in case 1 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.
