Two years ago, my family and I moved into my grandmother's house. The house was built in 1958 and is for the most part, a very sound house. The worse thing about it is the fact it has a very, very small crawl space under the house. So small that in two corners the house is less than a foot off the ground!
In normal years, or should I say, years of normal rainfall, this is would not be much of a problem. But this year has not be normal! With this year's rainfall being over 10" our normal amount, we started having problems with mold. We soon realized that it had to do with the fact that the crawl space could not dry out, causing high humidity to build up in our house. If we could stop the humidity, we would stop the mold.
So we purchased a Soleus Air Dehumidifier. The first night we had it on we could notice the difference! The mold smell was gone. The temperature of the house was warmer. And in less than 24 hours, the dehumidifier was needing to be emptied!!
We can't say enough good things about the dehumidifer. Our crackers don't get soggy any more when they get left out by the kids. Our apples, oranges and bananas are lasting longer. Our hand towels dry twice as fast now. The musky smell is gone!
We never realized just how much humidity was in the house until we started using the humidifier. The humidifier has been able to pull out the humidity for the whole house. We have about 1200 square feet that has been no problem for the Soleus Air Dehumidifier.
The Soleus Air Dehumidifier has different size holding tanks from 25 pints to 70 pints. Soleus Air has also made it possible for you to attach a hose for continuous drainage. We love our Soleus Air Dehumidifier for the fact that we can move the unit easily because of the rolling wheels on our unit. It also as a gauge on the front that lets you know when it is time to empty the storage tank. You can also set the humidity level you want with the digital control panel of the top of the unit. The instructions are easy to read and understand which makes it easy for you to set up and start using.
I highly recommend the Soleus Air Dehumidifier for anyone who lives in a high humidity area. A dehumidifier is also a must if you find mold of any kind in your home. Soleus Air has lots of different units with different features that will fit your family's needs!
