I have been using a small, portable dehumidifier in my bathroom during/after taking a shower as an alternative to using the exhaust fan. It appears to be a better solution than venting conditioned air out, except that I have to place the unit on my vanity and have to manually dump the catch bin. I would love to install a permanent, ceiling-mount dehumidifier that is tied to the waste plumbing system, but cannot for the life of me find one. Thoughts/suggestions?
Ah, that explains it. I didn't make the connection because the air in the room stayed warm and had forgotten that it takes power to cool the coil so that the moisture can condense and be removed. I didn't realize that a dehumidifier has a heating coil as well, but since I have baseboard heating in my house, that part is a wash, anyway. Thanks for setting me straight.
Dehumidifiers are better than exhaust fan due to its capability to pure air. There are a lot of portable and mounted dehumidifier in the market. But, after using mounted dehumidifier, it's not so difficult to remove it after one year. Folks can use mounted mini dehumidifier for one year and its simple to shift it into another place.
