Retrofitting Isothermal Dehumidifiers To Central Air-Conditioning Systems Can Help Reduce Your Energy Bills

In developed countries, building energy consumption accounts for roughly 50% of the total energy usage. HVAC (Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning) equipment, especially in hot and humid climates, is responsible for a major proportion of the total building energy consumption. Thus, making air-conditioners more efficient and more reliant on renewable energy sources is an important step
