Running quietly and efficiently, this 40-pint-capacity dehumidifier allows for discharging moisture continuously through the drainage port or collecting moisture in the reservoir tank. Its front-removable reservoir tank features a full-bucket indicator alarm to indicate when the bucket is full and includes an automatic shut-off function to prevent overflow. The unit offers an adjustable humidistat for setting humidity levels to accommodate individual preferences, while automatic defrost keeps the unit running no matter how cool a room gets. Whisper-quiet operation allows for using the dehumidifier anywhere, and the lightweight unit's built-in wheels and carrying handle allow it to be transported with little effort. The unit's washable air filter helps remove impurities and dust from the air, and the unit uses the no-CFC refrigerant for protecting the environment and to reduce pollution. The dehumidifier measures 21-1/2 by 15 by 10-2/7 inches.

Exceptional Dehumidifier We purchased this dehumidifier through Amazon about six weeks ago (great price; fast, free delivery - thanks Amazon!). In short, this item is exceptional in every respect. We bought a brand new house that had been vacant for a year. The basement had a strong, musty smell and we moved in during the high-humidity season. We washed out the basement, purchased this dehumidifier, and let it run at the highest and driest dehumidification (about 50% ambient room humidity) settings. Our basement is approximately 1,000 sq. ft. and this unit completely eliminated the musty odor in about 4 days. That was quite impressive given that the basement had been in a stinky state for almost a year. The basement was so damp and humid that we were emptying the ample water canister two to three times a day. That eventually leveled off to once in the morning and once at night as the dampness in the basement subsided.
We were not particularly concerned about how noisy this unit would be since it was intended to only occupy our undeveloped basement. However, even at the highest dehumidification setting, this unit is remarkably quiet and cannot be heard until you're practically right in front of it. At the "quiet" setting, it is virtually silent. We have had no problems with the unit at all and it has been running constantly for six weeks. It puts out a little bit of mildly warm air while running but probably not enough to significantly change the temperature of most rooms.
This is the first dehumidifier we've ever purchased so we can't really compare it to anything else but, based on our experience with it so far, we would join most of the other folks who reviewed it here and highly recommend it....more info
Absolutely worth it! The only thing worse than our damp basement was the rumble of our old Goldstar dehumidifier. Not only could you not have a conversation or watch TV when it was on, it heated up the basement tremendously. In shopping at Lowes and Home Depot, etc., I noticed that there werent many dehumidifiers on the market (two or three brands at the most) and NONE advertised quietness as a feature. I searched [...] for quiet dehumidifiers, and this model, The Soleus Air CFM-40 pint, had the highest ratings (5 stars). I bought it and must say that I could not be happier with a product. Its truly quiet, and truly efficient. It has a whisper quiet setting combined with adjustable humidistat and I set it on "Dry" and "Quiet"...and thats exactly what my basement is now. I highly recommend this product to anyone tired of noisy and innefficient dehumidifiers!!...more info
A quiet dehumidfier I found mold in my basement after moved in my new home. My friend told me I need to put dehumidifier in basement. After did some research, I bought 3 of this and turn them all on during summer time. They are quiet and doing a good job. The tanks are all full in a day and now the molds are gone....more info
Great little de-humidifier I bought this for a ground level basement where I store books. So far I'm quite pleased with its performance. It's small enough to fit just about anywhere, light, and easily movable (I honestly don't understand the criticisms of its weight and wheels/castors).
Although not as quiet as I'd hoped, the "Quiet" setting is not awfully distracting. The three humidity levels offer a fair amount of customization, and the 40 pint storage capacity is probably fine for most practical uses.
As other reviewers have noted, the heat generated by the unit is proportionate to the humidity setting (lower the humidity = more heat put out). That would be my one criticism of the product if it was not offset by merely turning the AC down a degree or two.
Compact but efficient I have had this dehumidifier for over a month now, and I love it! It's so quiet you hardly know it's on, but it really does the job. I will probably adapt it to a hose for continuous drain, but it has made an amazing change in my basement. ...more info
