I know this is a topic well discussed when related to specific products around this site, and I've read through plenty of them in my search for the best way for me to address my concerns about the upcoming Gulf Coast spring and summer seasons and their humidity. I'm having nightmares about my RV just disintegrating from all of the water in the air soaking into all of the cabinetry and such, and I'd like to take steps to prevent that.
My issue however is that everyone seems to have their preferred products and brands and methods, which is to be expected... but I am having trouble finding a key explanation to this whole mystery about these things.
I get there are generally 3 types:
1) Pull water from air, condense it into liquid, put it in a tank, re-use.
2) Pull water from air, trap in silica/crystals, replace or dry crystals, re-use.
3) Pull water from air with heating element, no tank/crystals, constant use.
... and I have absolutely zero idea how that 3rd type works in a scientific sense. In my mind, heating wet air, seems like it would just make the problem worse, wouldn't it? I don't claim to be a smart man at all, but I am frustrated that I can't get any info on how this actually works. I'm convinced it does from the amount of rave reviews of these products... but, I can't really think about them as a solution, until I understand it I guess.
