Why a dehumidifier is a must-have for your home this summer

Worth the investment!

Abigail Malbon

Humidity is on the increase as the weather warms up, which means your house may be starting to feel a little damp. If keeping the windows open isn’t really an option while you’re isolating at home, there’s another way to keep damp spots on walls, mildew or mould, or frequent condensation on windows at bay: a dehumidifier.

These clever gadgets remove water from the air, and help keep humidity at bay - no matter how much it’s rising outside. They’re surprisingly inexpensive to run, which makes them a no-brainer if you’re worried about damp patches. These ones are the best to invest in now…
