Running a fan and a dehumidifier at the same time in an older house should typically not be a problem, as long as the electrical circuits are in good condition and not overloaded.

However, there are a few things to consider:

1. Check the Electrical Capacity:

Older houses may have electrical systems with lower capacity compared to newer constructions. You should ensure that the circuit you're using can handle the combined load of the air mover fan and dehumidifier after flood.

2. Avoid Overloading Circuits:

If the circuit is already heavily loaded with other appliances or devices, adding a fan and dehumidifier could potentially trip a breaker or blow a fuse. It's advisable to distribute electrical loads across different circuits to prevent overloading.

3. Use Adequate Outlets:

Make sure that both the fan and commercial dehumidifier with drain hose are plugged into outlets that are in good condition and appropriate for the load. Avoid using extension cords or daisy-chaining multiple devices on a single outlet.

4. Consider a Dedicated Circuit: 

If you frequently use high-power appliances or have multiple devices running in a particular area, it might be worth considering installing a dedicated circuit for those devices to prevent overloading.

5. Regular Maintenance: 

Ensure that the electrical system in your older house is well-maintained. Check for any signs of wear or damage in outlets, switches, and wiring, and address any issues promptly.

6. Consult an Electrician: 

If you're uncertain about the capacity of your electrical system or have experienced issues with overloading in the past, it's a good idea to consult a licensed electrician. They can assess your electrical setup and provide recommendations for any necessary upgrades or changes.

Ultimately, the safety of running a fan and dehumidifier together in your older house depends on the specific conditions of your electrical system. If you have any doubts or concerns, it's best to consult a professional electrician for a thorough evaluation.
