Re: Bill, the air from Dehumidifiers is warmed!

Not saying your statement is wrong as far as drying wood, but the air exiting the units is warmer than the room air. The normal "compressor style" works similar to an air conditioner except an air conditioner cools the compressed Freon in the evaporator coils by use of the finned radiator and the heat is blown outside. The Dehumidifier cools evaporator coils by blowing the cold dried air across them and into the room as warm dry air.

However as you stated the temperature of the exiting dried air may not be high enough to quickly dry the wood near as well as elevating the temperature.
