Topic: Humidity Control with or without Reheat
Durkin’s approach is that most applications do not need for designers to control humidity, rather just make sure it doesn’t get out of control. Humidity control can be active or passive, but it should never be ignored. This talk will explain low cost but highly effective solutions that work in all climate zones.
