It's tough to plan ahead (see my notepad for stories to post on this blog). What do I mean by that? Well, for example, it's the holiday season, and if you're out shopping for a friend or relative you're more likely to get them a home improvement gift that would be useful immediately. (We're humans, we love instant gratification, and we want to hear praise about our gift quickly as well).
That said, electric heaters, manual thermostats and the like can be more expensive around the holidays even when they're being offered at a discount. That's because, after all, retailers know that we need these devices in the winter more than ever. As such, buying a dehumidifier now may be the best way to save money while getting something truly useful for family and friends.
Dehumidifiers are useful during the winter – for example when there's a snow thaw or a leaky pipe in the house, moisture levels can quickly escalate. Still, they get most of their use in the summer, when temperatures tend to be hot, and humidity levels can really make a difference.
Now, I'm not suggesting that you buy a dehumidifier for everyone on your list, but they could make a useful gift for someone you know who struggles with the high costs of energy in the summer and winter. In addition, at under $200 for most 30-pint models, high-quality products can be purchased for a relatively low cost.
By shopping online, you could also save. For instance, some internet retailers are offering free shipping, more than 10 percent discounts and other offers that you may not want to turn down for yourself or others.
