Hello. I have a 1100 square foot home in Victoria, BC. On clear nights, I always wake up to condensation on the windows, and I know what causes it. My question is whether or not to get a dehumidifier. I am looking at about $250.00 Cdn for one. I do not have mold problems, and a cheap humidistat is reading about 75% humidity. I run a bathroom fan 24/7 and it never lowers below the 75%. The air in the house can smell a bit damp, but not too bad. The house also takes a while to heat up. I use electric baseboard heaters.
Question is, should I buy the dehumidifier, or wait out the winter and not be too concerned with this. It is not a critical issue, just a situation that I would like some advice on. Thanks.
