Why not? I've had a device at home for many years that is rated to extract I believe 25 litres of water a day from air, though I think that's at 25 C and 80% humidity which I don't have. I think in practice its extracting about 10 litres a day, using 8 kW/h of electricity to do so. I then throw the water away as the purpose is to make the room more comfortable both by reducing the humidity and by pumping out about 800 W of heat from 330 W of electricity.

Wow, how can you get 800W of heat from 330W of electricity?

I think that some one is mixing up  W/o work output with W as in Watts  .. As a Heat Pump is only at best 80% efficient  . Depending on RH%, Dew point,
and ambient Temp . and  a few other factors ..
A regular example 1HP Home split AC on a Good day can extract about 3Lts per hour . but if the windows etc are closed this will drop to maybe 1Ltr/Hr. or Less
No Free energy unless plugged into next doors Fuse Box  :-DD

Water heat of vaporisation at 21 C is about 680 Wh/kg.

All the electricity going into the dehumidifier obviously turns into heat. The excess 800-330 = 470 W of heat is explained if it is condensing 470/680 = 0.7 litres of water an hour.

That's perfectly feasible for a typical domestic dehumidifier.

2 years between postings of dodgy crowd sourced projects? Are the crowd source sites cleaning up their act? Surely not.
