    are AC units good at dehumidifiying as well as a dehumidifier ?

    the temp is 85F in my grow tent and even i dont want to 1 F more heat. there is an exhaust on the back of AC units and exhaust of a AC unit is very hot.i can exhaust it outisde of house.however,a dehuey doesnt have a exhaust. so will a dehuey blow slightly dehumidified warm air ?as i said, in my grow tent, temp is 85F and even i cant endurance 1 F more heat.

    can i use a mobile 9000btu AC unit instead of a dehuey ?

    dehumidifiers will create more heat..and heat is an issue for you sooo you will have to go with a/c unit..plus an a/c unit takes the humidity out of the air and cools

    AC unit didnt solve my humidity problem. RH is still 55% even while AC is running at " dry " mode .
    i have to buy A dehumidifier imo :(

    I have a GE airconditioner that has a dehumidifier mode
    seems to work well.

    Dehumidifiers exhaust fairly significant amounts of heat.The best would be to have air from the room go into the dehumidifier intake and exhaust outside the grow room.
