Question: What are the disadvantages of a dehumidifier?

Dehumidifiers do have some disadvantages that you should be aware of before purchasing.

As such, they wont deal with any issues caused by poor insulation.

What are the cons of having a dehumidifier?

Con: Noise and Heat Dehumidifiers also tend to blow warm air out of the back of the unit. In the winter, this can be an advantage -- but not so much in the summer. Position the back of your dehumidifier in a doorway so that it doesnt heat up the room from which you are removing excess moisture.
