Hot, humid days are the worst days during summer. The common saying, "It's not the heat; it's the humidity" rings true in our ears whenever we feel fatigued, uncomfortable, sweaty, and sticky. The discomfort that heat brings us is far worse with humidity.
Office buildings have a pre-installed refrigerant or desiccant dehumidifiers to normalize the indoor humidity and level it down or up to 45 to 50%. Homes and small offices can now experience the comfort that refrigerant or desiccant dehumidifiers offers; portable or small dehumidifier can now be bought at stores at reasonable prices. They are specifically designed for personal and home use.
The desiccant dehumidifiers are famous in humid-hot places because they also acts as a cooler or air conditioner on hot days. The desiccant humidifier, however, is best for places where humidity level fluctuates, that is, humidity becomes high during summer and rainy days and humidity becomes low during cold and winter months.
The desiccant dehumidifiers have the ability to normalize or equalize the humidity level both during high or low humidity periods. There is no need to set it up to accommodate the air's humidity level. It detects automatically when it needs to lower down or higher up the air's moisture content. All one has to do is plug it up, or put it on (with a rechargeable battery) and it will work by itself.
There are also gas fired desiccant dehumidifiers if you want to save costs on electricity. This is your best companion if you are into hiking or trekking. You can maintain normal level of humidity inside your tent for a more comfortable sleep. If your gas reads empty, you can use the same gas that fuels your light or cooking burner.
