I've been thinking a whole lot about my quality of life and what I have control over to help myself and my circumstances. One of the issues I deal with is skin break down. This is account of using a wheelchair for mobility and the pain I experience causing me to sweat. I have just invested in a dehumidifier continual drain model. It is amazing how the technology has developed since I purchased my original dehumidifier in 2005. I've selected a model that doesn't require a compressor. It draws 90 watts of electricity an hour. It is exceptional performance and designed for a home that is the approximate shape of my home.
To make use of the continual drain option I've purchased the plumbing components to add a second drain connection where my washing machine drains into. I am going to be setting up this in the upstairs hall at the top of the stairs. This will maximize on the natural convection currents of my home. The washing machine is setup on the main floor below the upstairs hall. In a very practical sense it will be easy to connect this to the drain in my home. I'm very pleased with this. I'd rather deal with the root issue opposed to requiring daily application of skin break down medication. It is quite nice helping myself making the most of my circumstances.
