An article written by the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute’s (ARI’s) Desiccant Cooling and Dehumidification Equipment Product Section has been sent to 10,000 newspapers throughout the United States through the North American Precis Syndicate (NAPS). The article explains how desiccant systems can save homeowners and businesses money on heating and cooling costs while improving indoor air quality for a more healthful and comfortable environment.
