What advantages does a whole-house dehumidifier have over portable dehumidifiers?
Because whole-home dehumidifiers can be integrated into your duct system, they're quiet and need less daily maintenance. The direct connection to a water drain means you don't have to empty any containers. Portable dehumidifiers may be nice for smaller spaces, but they're not attractive to look at and you'll need to empty the collection tanks regularly. The quantity of moisture that a whole-home dehumidifier can remove is much larger than a portable unit and can support your entire home rather than a single room or area.
