Does a minisplit have a de-humidify-only setting?
For years I have used a noisy standing dehumifidier in my finished basement in the summer months, emptying the water daily etc. It does the job but obviously not only does not cool but throws alot of hot exhaust air back in the basement.
I could install a small AC in a window but prefer not to lose a window. I was thinking mini-split and wondered if I was away on vacation for a few weeks I'd hate to waste money cooling the basement when no one's there. Yet I have to dehumidify the room to prevent mold etc. and wondered if a minisplit could do that job without the cooling or is the electric draw the same for both functions?
