Customer Reviews:
  • Generates heat
    I'm not sure if heat generation is supposed to be a feature or if it is common to dehumidifiers but it seems to me that a dehumidifier that also acts as a heater is somewhat analogous to driving in searing heat with your heater on to keep your car from overheating. One buys a dehumidifier to mitigate humidity in climates where summer brings unbearable dampness magnifying the effects of the heat. Right??? What's the point of a dehumidifier that heats the freaking air???????????? Unless you have a problem basement or similar, winter dryness takes care of ambient humidity no???? Unless I'm missing something, this product deserves a five star idiot engineering award....more info
  • I thought a new digital control dehum would be the ticket
    WRONG!
    The digital control is a great idea, but needs to be taken a step further.
    all of these dehums with digital control, they all have the same problem. the sensor is built in. so as a result, after the fan shuts off (3 minutes after the compressor shuts off) then the humidity inside the machine makes the humidity climb fast and it turns on again - too soon. this causes it to keep cycling on and off too much.
    what a mfg of these things needs to do is use/supply a remote humidity sensor to place like 5-10 feet across the room. perhaps using one of those weather station remote sensors. then the fan wodul not have to run for 3 minutes after nor would it cycle on and off so much.
    the reason that a lot of people like that one brand (sorry, I forgot its name) is because it does not cycle on and off so much. well, it does not cause the fan is always on. well, that wodul help too - keeping th efanon the unit always one. but that also uses a lot of energy. a better solution is a remote humidity sensor. - there is a million $ idea for someone or some company out there to actually make a dehum work decently adn effieciently.
    I had one of these from a local Menards. It was only $128.99 on sale. but I took it back because it kept cycling too much, so I might as well keep my old non digital dehum.
