Our basement is approximately 800 square feet. It is a dry basement (no flooding), but there is also no ventilation, so the humidity builds up and mold/mildew starts to grow. Within 24 hours of plugging in this machine the dank basement smell was gone and the air felt the same as the air on our first floor. We love it. The only drawback is that it does make noise, but I understand it isn't as noisy as some similar products out there. We often air dry clothes in the basement - I have noticed that they dry much more quickly while we are using this device.

Good dehumidifier, could be quieter
The basement feels noticeably drier. However, the unit makes an annoying rattling noise until it gets fairly full.

Works well, but smelled badly initially
By Michael J.

About Me Homeowner
Both the 45 and 65 pt versions work well. I've had many dehumidifiers over the years, and these are the best. The 45 pt version smelled terribly at first-I had to run it outdoors for many hours. It's better now, but the smell lingers. The 65 pt version is very loud at times--there's a rattle that occurs often, but most dehumidifiers I've had had similar problems.At this point I'd buy either of these units again, at least at the price I got them for.

Works great on reducing the humidity over the whole house. I especially like being able to add a hose to the back of it so that it will drain itself.

Glad I choose this dehumidifier

I use this in my exposed basement quilt studio to prevent my fabrics from exposure to humidity. I love the 4 hrs on - 4 hrs off feature which has been doing a great job of controlling the humidity. I love being able to adjust the level of humidity I prefer. The bucket is a bit awkward to empty and the lightweight plastic makes me wonder how long it will last... I save the water to use in my steam appliances, so pouring into a container is tricky.I swear by Consumer Reports and this was a best buy pick.... I am not disappointed.

lg 45 pt dehumidifier
from lexington ky
a little loud
Works well but much louder than previous
from North Arlington, VA
Aside from the digital thermostat and noise, this is identical to one I owned previously which stopped working after three years. I keep in my basement as an added safeguard -- new house with every other system imagineable to protect the finished basement. I've set at 50 relative humidity and it kicks on and off periodically. I have it set up in the utility room where the sump pump (with double battery back-up) is located....I'm surprised at how loud it is...so much that I shut the door when I'm working or watching TV. Aside from the noise, I'd recommend. I'm hoping this one lasts longer than three years....
Good quality dehumidifier
from Vienna, VA
This is great for our basement, to keep down the mildew smell. It's been running great for the past three weeks - the real test is if it keeps working for the next 10 years....
