  Dried out mold
Reviewed by: Sue from Nashville

We've only had this for a month, but so far it's done great to dry out an area in our basement where we'd had water damage and mold growing.
  Beating Korea's Humidity
Reviewed by: Army Wife from Pyeongtaek, South Korea

Before I bought this dehumidifier, my marble floors were damp and my kids were slipping on them, my dished wouldn't dry, my sheets were damp, and it was overall miserable in the house. The day this was delivered there was immediate relief. Bought the humidity from 87% to 60% in 24 hours and it works for the whole house! The only reason it got 4 stars was that the unit is a little noisy and it does put out some heat.
  Danby DH working well
Reviewed by:  from PA

Just bought and received as promised. Dried out basement in two days with over a bucket each day. Actual humidity reading handy as well as actual temperature. Reviews said quiet system, but I would say not loud, but not quiet. Fan runs when machine is turned on even if not dehumidfying, thus always has sound of a fan running. Overall pleased, just don't like fan always running.

Customer Q & A

Q1: Does it restart itself after a power outage?
A: If it was on before the power kicked out, it should resume when the power comes back on.

Q2: Can I hook this up to drain straight into my drain hole in my basement and have it on constantly?

A: Indeed! Simple attached the supplied hose and run the line to the floor drain. This is often the preferred option when gravity is on your side, since it elminates the need to empty the bucket.

Q3: Why is the fan running all the time? My older unit was turning off when the humidity was low.

A: The fan runs continuously to keep air circulating throughout the room. This is to provide a more even and thorough removal of moisture in the space where you have the Danby operating.

Danby Dehumidifier Reviews

Danby Dehumidifiers

The Danby line of Premiere dehumidifiers is possibly the best in the business. The 50 pint Danby dehumidifier is a midrange model with a capacity suited for most rooms in your home including the basement. After testing two different models at our facility, we were impressed by the results.

What I liked about the Danby dehumidifiers

To put it in the most simple of terms, Danby dehumidifiers remove a large amount moisture efficiently. Although both models were tested during the hot and humid months of summer, we were surprised to find that over the course of an eight hour period we had to empty the holding tanks of each three times. Combined, the two models removed a total of 85.2 pints of moisture from the air in our warehouse, the equivalent of over 10 gallons. Hopefully the conditions in which you use your Danby are not as trying as our test conditions (approximately 89 degrees F. at 88-89% relative humidity), but even if they are, the Danby 50 pint has shown itself up to the task.

Digital features and a remote are an advantage over other models. The built-in humidistat is fairly accurate, showing between 3 and 5 points of deviation when compared to an separate hygrometer. This dehumidifier will also display the current temperature, relative humidity in the room and allow you to program it to run during certain times. The relative humidity set points range from 30 to 90% and can be adjusted at intervals of 5%. The auto de-icer allows the unit to defrost when the coils freeze, and the auto restart function comes in handy should you be in an area that experiences blackouts during the summer months.

Despite running non-stop during our testing periods, the Danby models are all quiet for their size. Some may complain about the noise, but in comparison to older models, the noise level is certainly an improvement. Additionally, the Danby dehumidifiers are all Energy Star compliant and use less electricity than most of their competitors.

All models also offer a direct drain line to save the irritation of having to manually empty the tank. This is particularly useful if you were using it in a basement or somewhere near your HVAC drain line where you could effectively tie the 6.5 ft. of included drain hose into the existing drain line. Regardless of whether you use it in your basement or living room, the drain line saves the possible mess and hassle of repeatedly emptying the tank.

The tank or reservoir capacity for the Danby Premiere dehumidifiers is in line with comparable models. Holding nearly two gallons, you will likely find yourself emptying the tank less often than other models.

What I did not like about the Danby dehumidifiers

Across the web you will find a lot of information showing these Danby models effective for extremely large areas. Literature from Danby rates the Danby 50 as effective for up to 3000 sq. ft. However our tests and analysis have found this to likely be more than actual results. Across our site we have adjusted Danby coverage area by taking into account our product testing results and the CFM (cubic feet per minute - fan speed) of individual models.

This unit is not light. Granted, the housing is fairly lightweight, but when you throw in the weight of the condenser, fan and motor, the 50 pint becomes a little weighty. Casters alleviate this to some degree.

As with all dehumidifiers, the Danby dehumidifiers do produce some heat. The technology behind traditional dehumidifiers warms the air before it exits the machine. Though this will contribute to a warmer temperature in the space where you use the dehumidifier, this is done so that the dry air exiting the machine can better capture more moisture (to be extracted as it runs through the dehumidifier).

Overall, the Danby Dehumidifier is one of the best residential dehumidifiers available, particularly for larger areas. Our test of the two of the Danby models gave us excellent results with few drawbacks, and a release of Consumer Reports only supports what we found. They ranked a Danby as its Best Buy for large capacity dehumidifiers. For moisture removal in your home, the Danby 50 pint does not disappoint.

AchooAllergy.com Customer Testimonials
The Ebac CD35 has a no nonsense durable design, and is very quiet, free of rattles. Achoo Allergy expedited the order and we received the unit in a very timely manner. I would recommend this unit for anyone needing a smaller capacity, well built dehumidifier.
