    My 2000 sq ft house has an average humidity around 50-52%, but the large bathroom, small enclosed laundry room, and the large bedroom between the two have a higher humidity than the other side of the house, which negatively affects my chronic neurological condition.

    I don’t want to get the whole house so dry that it aggravates the children’s eczema so am concerned about overdoing it. I do want to reduce the humidity in the areas most affecting me, especially during peak activity times. As it stands now, if my spouse showers first, I can’t shower after without being affected. If I’m washing clothes, I can’t then be active enough to hang them to dry in the same space.

    Would I be doing better to use multiple smaller dehumidifiers than to use one big one? My spouse is interested in humidifiers that are installed in the ceiling’s vent fan (if I understand correctly, and I might not) but says they create heat, which also affects me. This has left me without any dehumidification for years. I don’t believe what I have is the best it can be so I’m trying to learn for myself. What are my options?

    I own a Keystone Dehumidifier model number SD52PE and have a troubleshooting code of E6. What does this code mean and is it worth getting repaired?

      We recommend that you contact the manufacturer directly with this question. A customer service phone number should be listed in the manual that accompanied the dehumidifier when you bought it.

    I just have a question about house size/dehumidifier capacity.
    I live in a yurt ( large insulated tent ) that is about 700 square feet, with a vaulted ceiling.

    I’m wondering if you could give me any advice on what size unit would be best suited for this space? Because of the nature of the building, it tends to be fairly humid.

    Thanks so much for your time. Your site has been fantastic. :)
