The mechanics behind a refrigerant style dehumidifier are actually quiet simple. Notice how moisture forms on the outside of your cold glass of water on a hot day? That's condensation, and once you know that, understanding how a dehumidifier works becomes a lot easier.

Much like your glass of ice water, the coils are colder than the air immediately around them. As air cools, it's ability to hold and retain moisture drops, and when the air has more moisture than it can hold, it forms that familiar condensate.

The condensate then collects in a drip pan or bucket for disposal while the now cooled air passes back over the dehumidifiers warm motor to that it is slightly reheated before being discharged back into the room. By being slightly warmed, the air exiting the dehumidifier is dry and warm which means it will attract moisture like a magnet and maximize the dehumidifier's efficiency.
