Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for contacting us with regards to our Aprilaire Dehumidifiers. We're not aware of any way that dehumidification can reduce your heating bill. Generally speaking, in cold climates, dry air will make you feel colder as water evaporates from your skin faster. Humidity can actually reduce this evaporation, making you feel warmer. In fact, humidification can help you reduce your heating bills by allowing you to feel comfortable at lower indoor temperatures due to a minimizing of this evaporative cooling effect.
