Want to improve energy efficiency in your home? Add a dehumidifier. Properties that suffer from damp and condensation may benefit from a dehumidifier. A damp property has a higher percentage of water in the air and as a result the property will feel a lot colder than a dry property. Therefore, it is not uncommon for tenants to flick the thermostat up a few extra degrees to compensate. By doing this they increase the energy consumption, so by fitting a dehumidifier the excess water in the air will be removed and therefore making it much dryer and easier to heat, potentially lower fuel bills.
Also by reducing the risk of condensation and damp, you are also reducing the likelihood of mould growth. This will not only benefit the health of your tenants but also protect your property.
