When running dehumidifiers you need to keep all doors and windows closed in the area your using the dehumidifier in..If you run a dehumidifier in a room with open windows (especially on rainy days) you are just drawing in humidity from outside....
Another way to dehumidify a room is to open out the windows and direct the airflow of a BIG fan out the window (but this only works on dry warmer days)
If its raining keep your windows closed!![/quote
Are dryer is out in are garage and cooking lol not much of that done either
If you insulate house the air circulation get even worse.
Assuming you own the house I suggest to install air ventilation with heat recovery system. This will ensure that insulating house was not waste of money, as only other way to circulate fresh air is to keep windows open, which mean loosing heat from house.
I have read about study on insulated houses and apartments which raised issue with air circulation. For family house you need around 40l of fresh air per hour to maintain healthy environment. They researched number of houses and detected increased number of health issues due to lack of fresh air.
It make sense if you think about healing by breathing high oxygen air which is used successfully in athletics and other sports.

It's a long way to Tipperary.
