Humidity in basement was 72-77%. So I went to Costco and bought a Danby dehumidifier. I thought it would work for few hours and then stop, but no, it's working 24/7 and bringing humidity about 60%.
This morning I went to the basement to check on it and found out that it was operating like an A/C, though the model I bought is heater/fan/dehumidifier, no a/c. I figured it was cycling and maybe for defrost purposes needed to shut down part of the system and have it work as an a/c for a while.
I will play with it this weekend, but in the meantime I wanted to know if anyone else out there has hacked a danby dehumidifier to make it work as an a/c on demand?
