Question about Whirlpool Dehumidifiers
A dehumidifier is a 'de-tuned' air conditioner. Its job is to remove some of the heat from the air, causing a temperature differential which in turn should make the warm air give up some of its moisture ... just like a AC unit.
To understand the operation, you must accept that you cannot cool anything ... you must remove the heat from it. The heat (energy) must go somewhere ... in the case of a dehumidifier, it goes back into the room. Oh yes, also contributing to the heat is the electric components you are running ... the control boards, the compressor and the fan ... all use power and thus, give off heat.
Should there be heat coming out of the unit? ... yes, if it is running. Don't get mad ... these are things you probably learned in 6th grade science class - relative humidity - heat differential - properties of energy - etc.
