I find that calling small heaters dehumidifiers is blatant false advertising. I can't respect that.

From Websters:
Definition of DEHUMIDIFY
: to remove moisture from (as air)

While they reduce relative humidity by changing the temperature, they do not remove any water. They should call them what they are.

You can by an actual small dehumidifier for less.

Writing full-time since 2014
