In low temperatures, desiccants outperform refrigerant dehumidifiers. Refrigerants tend to freeze up or stay in defrost mode for long periods of time in these situations. They aren’t removing much water from the air in any instance. Desiccants continue to absorb moisture at 0° fahrenheit. In garages, crawlspace during the winter months, drying with a desiccant is best.
Dense materials can be dried more quickly.
