I just got a 50 pint dehumidifier for my house and I would like to know where would be the best place to put it. The first floor is about ~ 950 sqft. A little drawing to show the floor plan:
When I use my wood stove the basement humidity drops to ~35% while upstairs it stays above 45-50%; temperature on the first floor is about 20-21 °C and basement about 25-27 °C.
When not using it, the humidity downstairs is 45-50% and upstairs 50-55%. Temperature on the first floor is ~18-19 °C and basement about 17-18 °C.
I'm thinking of putting it upstairs close to the stair or to put it downstairs under the hole (kind of air vent) in the floor, the dehumidifier has a fan that pushes air up.
I live in Canada and temperatures can drop to under -20 °C and currently I can see condensation in the windows if the humidity is above 50% and outside it's under 4 °C.
