Living near the beach has its advantages.
I have constantly been in adore with the ocean, and now I am just a quick 5 second drive away from it! I rarely go into the water, I just love laying on the sand and listening to the crash of the waves. The people I was with and I have an abundance of fresh seafood in this town, something I avail myself of on a regular basis. On the other hand, there are a couple of drawbacks to living here as well. The ocean regulates the hot and cold temperatures all year around, so they remain moderate, however the humidity levels are off the charts! I have a dehumidifier in my front room, another one in the den, and a second one in my upstairs family room. Even though most Heating, Ventilation plus A/C systems have a dehumidifier built into them, it simply is not enough to meet my needs. Not to mention the fact that I rarely needed air conditioner at all, the problem was just with the high levels of moisture in the air. Usually I have the off, however keep all the fans in the idea turned on, just for typical air circulation. That combined with my various dehumidifiers have made a immense difference in my home, and made it a little easier to breathe. I constantly make sure to check and empty the water traps in my dehumidifiers every single morning. That is how suddenly they fill up! Buying various dehumidifiers was not cheap, however in the long run it will save myself and others a lot of currency by protecting my lake apartment from becoming damp and moist.
