I have one good dehumidifer I bought from a furniture store going out of business a few years ago. And a kind of crummy one that I bought for $3500 MXN from mercado libre awhile back.
I was looking at having one shipped via amazon but the large well reviewed ones are $200 US or so -- that's doable. But shipping and import taxes gets it up to $450 US!
Mercado libre only had one and it reviewed out TERRIBLY. As in "Do not buy this unit at all cost" type of reviews.
So....anyone seen one available in this neck of the Yucatan? At least that way I could possibly return it for credit or replacement if it turns out to be a bummer.
I find a dehumidifer is really a necessity in any room that isn't used a LOT so that it gets completely aired out on a very regular basis. And even then the humidity is so conducive to mildew. Without my big boy my back guest room which has a windowless cement closet attached that sits behind our well, would be overgrown with mildew. It starts to smell musty within two weeks of no dehumidifier use.
