My name is Theresa Clark. I am an engineer passionate about all things HVAC & Climate Control. I researched air quality and humidity control products because I have a new construction home with severe eczema that no one could diagnose. I was miserable, and after four doctors couldn’t figure it out, I did my own research.
I was diagnosed with a formaldehyde allergy. I removed all products containing formaldehyde from the house except for the materials attached to the house. I then learned that the carpets and flooring put off formaldehyde. What is the way to slow this effect? A dehumidifier! I started with a formaldehyde meter and a room dehumidifier. Life got better. I then graduated to the full home version. The problem significantly improved!
Now that I have had the dehumidifier for three years. I now need a Reme Halo air purifier to kill the bacteria now growing there.
After researching the cost of operating a unit and the effect on comfort, I believe that I have reduced the use of an air conditioner because the air isn’t as humid.
Lots of stuff to discuss…
