    Ok, so this doesn't really have anything to do with IM.. but I'd really like some answers/replies :)

    So, one of my relatives is prone to Asthama, and the problem is Related to High Humidity levels (70-80%) during June - Oct months here.

    Just wondering if anyone in a similar situation has got a Good DeHumidifier at Home? Or Is it Better To Get an AC with humidity Control?

    I'm really looking forward to some answers.

    Thanks!

    That's why a lot people move to Arizona or the southwest in general.

    Get a dehumidifier.

    If you don't have AC already then its probably not hot enough to need one.

    And cold air from AC often gives people breathing/sinus problems anyway.


    No guarantee it will solve their problems though. Maybe they are allergic to house dust (dust mites) or even just general levels of dust in the outside air? Such things can trigger asthma in some people.

    In this case, other factors (dust etc) are already taken care of.

    Humidity is the main issue, been already confirmed in my relative's case (It happens in particular months only, when humidity levels rise in my area).

    You're Right, heat isn't much of a problem here.

    if you dont mind to chat for a few mins, add me on skype please.

    First and foremost if you're having respiratory issues I'd recommended a set of teas ; Mint, Golden seal and Pulmonaria. India is a really humid climate right? From my experience for an effective humidifier you'll need to purchase a higher end one as the generic ones don't make the cut. I purchased the Air-o Swiss and it is very effective in a confined space........, Once you make a decision, I wouldn't mind scouting a bargain find and helping you get it to India.

    Dont buy a cheap one, I had 3 cheap ass ones running in my grow room and they were a pain in the ass. Make sure you get one with a good capacity tank in it, otherwise you will spend more time emptying the water container than doing anything else.
