Dehumidifier running constantly

I live in a high humidity area and my crawlspace requires a dehumidifier. The settings chosen would leave it running almost constantly. It would have cost $600/year to operate. I was able to modify the settings to get it down to about $300/yr. I am planning to seal up the crawlspace and I expect to gain a little more. I never would have known it used so much power.

Share how you used the Sense app to help. Be specific!:
The sense app detected the dehumidifier in the first few days. I saw how much the device was running and decided to monitor the humidity levels. I found I could change the settings on the dehumidifier, keep a similar humidity level, and cut my energy usage in half.
