Poor Dehumidification With Minisplit
My workshop, about 24 x 36 has a Mitsubishi mini-split. As far as temp, it works great. ( which surprised me how good they have gotten) . But, it does a terrible job of de-humidification. I have had it looked at twice and it is running as it should. Coils are running about 5o degrees, but darn little moisture is removed. I need to keep it in the 50 to 55% range. The summer it runs over 70 until I added a cheap de-humidifier which does pump out the water for as long as they last, about one year which really adds up!
Is this normal for a mini-split? No, the “dehumidification mode does virtually nothing.
