I'm currently having four ceilings skimmed and as the chain of events leading to me moving in are now directly connected to the skim drying out, I wondered if there is a sensible way to speed it up?

It's empty for most of the time so reluctant to leave the windows open. The Central heating is working but I suspect I'd face the danger of it drying out too quickly if I left it on or would a low temp help (maintaining for example 15 degrees C)?

I've also read about using dehumidifiers on here which sounds like a good idea to me but would I need one in each room or would one do the whole bungalow? There are no doors fitted by the way so it's a collection of connecting spaces.

Any advice gratefully received.

Ta,
Jon.

it should only take a couple of days to dry out if your skimming plasterboard, ive seen them use red heaters on site to dry them out but not for the sake of a couple of ceilings.
