Dehumidifier.. is one needed?

Howdy!
I'm. Soon to be moving into a ground floor flat. The bathroom and kitchen have no windows. In bedroom 2 there is a boiler underneath the window, which probably means I won't be able to open it.

So , not sure if a dehumidifier is needed?

Thanks :)

    You would be better spending your money on a Carbon Monoxide detector by the sound of it.
    If there is one in the flat check that it works

    What is a co2 detector? You really need an extractor fan in bathroom.

    If you've got a CO2 detector you'll be setting it off every time you breath out near it.

    You can always get a small humidity meter to measure humidity in your flat there fairly cheap to buy something like the HTC-1 should do, humidity should be around 50-65%, obviously showering and cooking may raise it a little for a while. I have two dehumidifiers at home one in cold porch to prevent windows steaming up, and one upstairs. The one upstairs I run now and then when I check humidity levels

    You need a Carbon Monoxide (that is CO) alarm.

    CO2 is Carbon Dioxide - A different gas and no where near as dangerous as Carbon Monoxide.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.

    I've been in a new-build end terrace (1990s) with a windowless bathroom. Of course, there was an extractor fan fitted. But what sort of a dwelling doesn't have kitchen windows either, if not a basement flat? I'm thinking this conversion was done without informing the LA.
