The article presents information on humidity control systems that capture water during the dehumidification process and purify it into drinking water. The PotableAire system has been undergoing continuous development for the last three years. The unit was first introduced as the LiquidAire system, but underwent a name change when improvements were made and the technology advanced. In a PotableAire system, outside air passes through an efficient air filter, which purifies it by removing dust, pollen, mold spores, and other airborne particles. The moisture is condensed from the outside air and collected in an ultraviolet-protected chamber.
