Re: 50 or 70 pint dehumidifier

The amount of heat released depends on the amount of humidity converted into water.
Water vapors contain a huge amount of energy. Condensing 70 pints of water will release some 70,000BTU of heat. That's the output of your typical 1500W space heater running for 14hrs... and it's before even thinking about the heat produced by the unit itself...
