Re: Bill, the air from Dehumidifiers is warmed!

Larry, I'm sure there is the air is a little warmer coming out the back end of a dehumidifier , but whether it is from pumping a fluid through the tubing is beyond my pay grade. However I'm sure there is some heat generated by running the compressor though. Now, the question is whether it is more efficient to heat the air with a compressor, or the element in a space heater?
I have some doubt about whether those compressors would last when the temperature rises to 140ยบ.

In the method I described I don't worry about taking the moisture out of the air, but rather just let the same amount of air escape that is being blown in under my tarp bubble. The escaping air takes the moisture along with it.
