About the TrueDRY™ DR65 Dehumidifier
The Honeywell TrueDRY DR65 ensures the home is maintained at proper humidity levels through its high
performance and efficiency.

Benefits

• Removes up to 65 pints (30.8 l) of water per day from the
indoor air.
• Built-in humidity control requires no additional wiring to an
external control. Just plug in and go! Choice of external
control options also available for centrally ducted control.
• Feedback on operation and maintenance provided via
intuitive on-board LED light interface.

Maintaining Ideal humidity

Dew points and relative humidity (RH) affect the way your
body senses heat. Higher humidity levels cause the air to feel
much hotter than the actual temperature. When maintained
properly, your cooling equipment may not run as much because dehumidified air feels cooler.
WHAT THE AIR FEELS LIKE
HOW HOT THE HEAT-HUMIDITY COMBINATION MAKES IT FEEL.
EXAMPLE: AIR AT 90ºF WITH 50% RH FEELS LIKE 96ºF TO THE HUMAN BODY!
SOURCE: TEMPERATURE - HUMIDIY INDEX WAS DERIVED BY R.G. STEADMAN, JOURNAL OF APPLIED METEOROLOGY, JULY 1979.
Ideal humidity is defined by industry
experts* as being between 40-60%
on an average annual basis. When
indoor humidity exceeds 60%, the
home is more susceptible to mold
and mildew growth. TrueDRY DR65
safeguards against excessive humid-
ity in the home year-round.
