It certainly sounds like it would work - just beware of moisture getting into your circuit, or corroding exposed surfaces.

.  "High cooling" is not required. You just need to drop the temp a few degrees to start removing water from the air. Look at what happens to an iced drink that has been set on the counter.
.  As far as the power required, that depends on how much water you want to remove and how quickly you want to do it.

.  PS: steveastrouk seems to be a bit of an expert on TECs - maybe he will provide some insight.
