How Outdoor Temperature Affects Dehumidifier Run Times
Hi, hope everyone is doing well. This question is to make sure I’m using a dehumidifier correctly. I live in the suburbs of nyc which means humid summers and cold winters. In the summer I run my ac which is central air with a vent into my basement as well as a stand alone dehumidifier in the basement at 60. Now that the temp is beginning to drop, do I turn off my dehumidifier for the fall/winter and then wait until temperature rises. In other words do you need a dehumidifier in cold weather. Isn’t cold weather dry? You also don’t run into the problem of condensation. I read that once temps drop under 60 you don’t need a dehumidifier. Is that correct?
