Item works very well, running smoothly and quietly. Moves from one location to another with ease, and is very easy to empty tray. Well worth the money. It dried out the first floor of my home quickly and effortlessly.Read More
Woks good, but one reason for purchase was electric company was offering rebate for energy eff dehumidifier. No way to prove so will not receive rebate.Read More
I live in South Texas and its always a toll for the AC to keep up with the humidity. I received this product on Friday afternoon and I have already emptied it 4 times and my AC hasnt kicked on as much. This is the begining of summer and I can already tell this is going to pay for itself in what I will save on my electric bill.Read More
Excellent fairly quiet dehumidifier. The only problem is that although it can take out 40 pints in 24 hours, the bin to collect the water doesn't even hold 1/4 of that 40 pints - which means if you have a very wet problem you will have to empty the bin several times a day.Read More
The product did what it states, pulled the humidity out of our basement within 24 hours. The problem is the connection of the unit to the hose for continuous drainage leaks! Tried everything with no solution, now basement floor is soaked. The unit works great if you don't need the continuous drainage with a hose and just use the container, but we need more, so returned it.Read More
This is a really noisy machine. Turn it on high and you can hear it from a floor above. It barely gathers and water in the tank and after running it for 3 days straight in the laundry room, it didn't get more than a cupful of moisture in the tank. It also get an unpleasant mildewy smell after a couple of weeks. I cannot say I am impressed.Read More
I put this in the crawl under our bathroom. Even though it's smaller and lighter than my other units, it still works as well or better! Well worth the investment. Easy to use and empty.Read More
Shortly after we hooked it up, we had a flood in our basement due to clogged plumbing. It sucked up all of the water in a day or so. the basement smells dry and clean as does the rest of the house just from sucking moisture out of the basement. Only issue is the tubing that comes with it. It was too short to put into the out pipe so my husband had to buy a longer one. now we never have to dump the water collector.Read More
Purchased for a finished basement bedroom about 800 square feet. Very quiet operation, seems to suck moisture out of the air very efficiently. The basin is not huge but if we empty it every day or every other day it continues to keep the room feeling dry and smelling dry. We have been very impressed with this product and the price was the lowest we found for this model.Read More
