Remove moisture from the air with a dehumidifier. By using a dehumidifier in warm, humid months it will help you feel cooler, allowing you to use a higher air conditioning setting on your programmable thermostat. Make sure you place the dehumidifier in an open area away from walls and other furniture. This placement will help you get the most out of your Dehumidifier.
When deciding which dehumidifier to purchase, make sure you choose the one with the Energy Star Logo. Energy Star dehumidifiers use 10 to 20 times less energy than a regular dehumidifier, and still provide the same amount of features.
