Used to reduce the feeling of humidity in the room the dry setting is ideal for humid days that are not steaming hot. Rather than aim to cool the space, dry mode removes some of the moisture in the air. As the humid air cools on the evaporator coils the water condenses resulting in dryer air returning to the room.
