Desiccant Dehumidification Beats Heat as Construction Drying Method.

Web Abstract: 
Describes the necessity of drying building materials after installation, outlining risks of damage and contamination from moisture lingering in the building. HVAC systems should not be used to accomplish drying. Proper drying is defined, and problems using heat for drying are cited. Dessicant heaters constructed specifically for this purpose are recommended, as they attract a greater volume of moisture and operate well at a variety of temperatures.
