    Should I get a little dehumidifier for my room?

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      I also wonder if I should invest in a dehumidifier as well? I never really bothered to mess with them, figured you don't need it unless you just naturally have a humid room/living space? You can buy a hygrometer that tells you the humidity levels in the room, and that would be a better indicator of whether or not you need one. You obviously don't want a high humidity dwelling, but you can also look for signs of high humidity in your room/living space as well.

      I personally was looking into getting a small air purifier, but I'm not sure if it'll do anything. I've read a lot of people benefit from them, helps them sleep better and breathe better. It seems to really only be necessary if you live with pets, but I've never read anything bad about having one.

            Not at all, those things are pretty efficient, especially if you limit it to one or two rooms (it'd be incredibly dumb to try and cool the entire house).

            It's either that or you get to sit in 45C heat/30-35C over night.

On top of that, the speed limit on it is like 55 or 60 when there's no reason for that, probably just to collect more speeding tickets. frickers.

            I think rainstorms are really scary because it rains really hard and everything gets wet and it's easy to slip and fall and get hurt. Way scarier than a tornado. Super scary imo. I mean just imagine it's you're just chilling then it starts to rain; I bet your chances of survival plumet to the single digits. At least when it tornados you can just fly around in it and land. It's not as bad as rain. Rain is real scary.

          A lot of your populated areas outside of the coast seem to be N1 or N2 requirement if not built on a hill.
