home dehumidifiers are just little refrigerators, suck in moist air over cooled coils which condenses the water. It looks like the desiccant technowledgy is more commercial than home use and probably costs more than the average house.
If you put a fan behind a water filled kettle on a woodstove that is hot you are creating a humidifier. That is putting moisture in the air. A dehumidifier takes moisture from the air and converts it into water, normally stores in a container and needs a compressor. So Darkgael and Gene I believe are talking about humidifiers not dehumidifiers I would guess?
No, I'm not talking about a humidifier. Because we live in a very humid state, I use dehumidifiers in unheated rooms and sheds. I may well be wrong about the compressor issue, but the littlest one never sounded like it had anything but a fan. It certainly did pull water out of the air in the closet next to the bathroom till the power supply died.
Frigidaire 70 pint Dehumidifier is better than anyone at removing moisture form the air .This brand has been around for a long time and is a well trusted one globally. They have excellent customer service and cooperate with their consumers. This product is truly a great option. It has a great outlook such that it would fit wonderfully in any household without clashing with its aesthetic. Furthermore, it is easy to move around from room to room if required of it since it features conveniently placed wheels and top and side handles.

thanks to this thread I bought one of those magic fans off of ebay for 30 bucks for the kids appartment. Its been happily spinning for two winters now. Probably paid for itself because the son doesn't use the electric fan on his space heater anymore.
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!
I was reviewing and re-reading this thread about the thermo-electric fans, how the price goes up as you increase in velocity and was wondering if two or more in series would be a cost effective way to move more heat for applications that need it.
