My husband and I recently moved into a new home, and I cannot tell you how nice it is to have the space that we desired.
We have four kids and three dogs.
We previously lived in a two bedroom apartment, and it was quite packed in there. It felt like there was hardly room to walk around in the apartment when all of us were home. Even though we have a great air conditioning system in our new house, I made sure to bring the two dehumidifiers that we used constantly in our apartment. Air conditioning obviously does something for the humidity, but it never did enough in our apartment. It got so humid sometimes that I could not stand it. The kitchen was the worst, and I think it was because of my cooking. My family loves different types of pasta, so we have pastas about four times a week. The steam from the cooking pasta made the humidity much worse in the tiny little apartment. I am not sure how the kitchen in our new house will do, but I hope it will be better than that tiny, apartment kitchen. I have noticed already that the laundry room in our new house is much more humid than the rest of the house, so one of the dehumidifiers will definitely be going in there. I do not know where the second one will go. I am leaning towards putting it in the bathroom because the guest bathroom tends to stay humid for hours after someone has showered in it. I am glad that we do not have as bad of issues with humidity in our new house, but I am also glad that I decided to bring my dehumidifiers with us to our new home.
