Re: 50 or 70 pint dehumidifier

said by Lurch77:

Most dehumidifiers pass the air first over the evaporator, then over the condenser. They shouldn't change the temperature of the space significantly.

Not for any that I have had and I have had to run dehumidifiers for the last 5+ years in a specific room (main room - not basement) and the temps are up by 5-7 degrees easy.

All you have to do is put your hand in the discharge air from the condenser to see it's warmer than room temperature which means it's warming the space.

I did say significantly. We have one that runs in our crawlspace. It's not hot down there.

The crawl space is a big heat sink.
