heat pumps as dehumidifiers

February 19, 2010

How do heat pumps operate as dehumidifiers, run in cooling mode with a low fan for a while, drip dry and then heat for a while to get the temp back up? Maybe they actually ice the coils?

This would seem relatively inefficient compared to a good dehumidifier. Does anyone have comparative figures for water removal?
