About the TrueDRY DH65 Dehumidifier
The Honeywell TrueDRY DH65 ensures the home is maintained at proper humidity levels through its high performance
and efficiency.

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 temper-
ature. When maintained properly, your cooling equipment may not run as much
because dehumidified air feels cooler in the summer.
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 humidi-
ty exceeds 60%, the home is more suscep-
tible to mold and mildew growth. TrueDRY
DH65 safeguards against excessive humid-
ity in the home year-round.

Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
