  • Publication number: 20210324569
    Abstract: A clothes treatment apparatus includes a cooling water pipe that is placed within a condensing duct to condense humidity contained in a circulating air current. The latent heat generated from the condensation of humidity causes the temperature of the cooling water in the cooling water pipe to rise. A thermoelectric pump mechanism collects heat from the higher-temperature cooling water and uses it in heating the circulating air.
