Re: I need a new dryer
So its more a water line than a humidity thing then...thats what I thought.
Even though its dry in the summer here, it be damp during the rainy season. I make good use of a large kenmore dehumidifier on a regular basis.
When I sold my last house, the buyer bought in a mold/mildew specialist as part of his inspection process. Guy said my house was the driest house he had ever tested and the only one that he didnt find at least some trace of mold in.
Watching "house detectives" on hgtv, almost every house has some sort of moisture problem, standing water problem, leaking roof/pipes or some nimrod stuffed all the roof vents with insulation or vented a dryer into the house. I dont know if they just target those sorts of homes for the show or if thats the situation generally. I know every house I've owned had a grading problem near the house that allowed water to stand and had some sort of other moisture issue that I had to correct.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
