Where can I buy a powerful (60-75 pint) dehumidifier in the Bay Area today
? I'm willing to buy it online and pick it up in the store, or just go directly to the store, but I'm trying to find a way to avoid spending all afternoon driving from store to store. Is there a specialty shop? Have you had any luck with "buy online - pick up in store today" options at Home Depot, Lowe's, Ace, Target, etc.? Is there a website that compiles local inventory for things like this? [more inside]

What's a good dehumidifier for a crawl space? I've read the posts on dehumidifiers for basements, but does a crawl space require something more robust? I'm trying to decide whether I can get away with something I can pick up easily at a big box store for a few hundred dollars, or whether I need to spend double or triple that.

Are there cheap alternatives for the large and elaborate "dry boxes" I see listed for use as dehumidified storage cabinets for lenses and other camera gear?
I've built up a little collection, live where the summer humidity is often high, and do not run my AC 24/7.
My first thought is that this is basically an airtight box with a bunch of dessicant inside. Can't really be that simple, though.

Will a dehumidifier work for my mold problem? The size charts say a 25 pint one (~$150) would be fine for my square footage, but would one be able to cover the bathroom, living room and bedroom considering they are separate rooms? Would the air flow be good enough, or should I get some of the much smaller (seems like less well-reviewed too) dehumidifiers that go for $50-$70 on Amazon and put one in each room? [more inside]
