Condensation can turn a bathroom into a mold factory that ruins tile and triggers allergies. DewStop's weather-prediction software turns on the bathroom fan when temperature and humidity levels get too high, and it predicts how long the fan should run based on how much water vapor is in the air, so the fan won't waste energy or shut off too quickly. And whereas other detectors require installing a new ventilation system, DewStop easily connects to existing bathroom fans.

Beat Bathroom Moisture with DewStop

Technology Tell
Beat Bathroom Moisture with DewStop

It's wintertime, and the dew on the ground has turned to frost, which makes it the perfect time to empty the hot water tank with nice, hot showers. Unfortunately the colder the air is, the less moisture it can hold, so even if you have a watertight shower, every surface in the room still ends up getting soggy - the floor, the ceiling, the sink, the toilets, but more importantly your walls and cabinets. Exhaust fans are the easiest method of dealing with that, but they only work if you remember to turn them on. And let's be honest here: you never remember to turn yours own, do you? Now there's an easier solution... Keep Reading >>

Consumer Critique

Motherhood Moment: A Collection of Tips and Tricks for Moms
Consumer Critique

In the summer, in most places in the US, it's easy for humidity to accumulate - especially in basements. Any time of year, it's easy for bathrooms to become very steamy with hot showers. All that humidity can lead to moisture, mold, and mildew problems. It's easy to remember to turn on a fan when you get into the shower, but just leaving it on while you're showering won't really clear out all of the humidity. And places like basements or laundry rooms are harder to remember to air out. Sometimes in our house, we forget to turn the fan off later, which wastes energy. The DewStop eliminates the problem of remembering to turn the fan off later - or forgetting to turn it on in the first place... Keep Reading >>
