A: Somebody 's hiding the fact that moisture penetrates the cellar ... which 's either through the walls or drafty windows . Most time these things happen because after the particular walls were poured , they filled in the ground in promptly after for the removal of forms . The specific walls 're like a sponge ... so they would take in water from a high water table . The only way to make specific watertight is to paint it with TAR all the way down to the footing -BEFORE they push in the dirt . It has to be done from the outside .

Q: How does my dehumidifier work in my new portable air conditioner?
A: Portable acs will cool . A dehumidifier will not cool . It will get warm whilst running .  GE makes mobile ACs . The hose has to get out a window .  We looked at the ACs in Wal Mart . The info on the mobile AC said the moisture vaporizes .  Lowes 've got the mobile ACs too .  The AC will run the bill up . Then , yet , when the new ac runs the other will run less .
