Garrison 60-Pint Dehumidifier Review
If you live in coastal areas or in small apartments, then you might have experienced the annoying high humidity levels that will not go away regardless of how many doors and windows you open.
This is due to the fact that humid air sometimes gets trapped in enclosed rooms, particularly in the bathrooms, kitchens, basement, and others where there is non-existent or poor ventilation.
The good news is, there are hundred o dehumidifier models available out there.

How Does It work?
The Garrison Dehumidifier uses R-410A Refrigerant in order to dehumidify areas of up to 4,000 square feet. The fan takes in humid air and moves it through the filter and an evaporator.

The dried air is then released and the process is repeated again and again until moisture and humidity levels are reduced.
