  Finally Something Better
Reviewed by: Cary Lalor from Montello Wi.

I Purchased A 70 Pint Danby Dehumidifier Yesterday. I Brought it home at noon yesterday, I thought I'd Better check the tank Last night, the tank was completely full at 9 P.M. This morning I checked the tank again. This Time the tank was full and had shut down at 6:30 A.M. I just checked it again at 2:00 P.M. Full Again. Our Old Dehumidifier would take out a half tank about once a week. So far I Love The New Danby. It's Quiet in the Basement, And I'm running the fan on high. Works Great !!

Reviewed by: damp Florida sufferer from Naples, FL

I purchased this to bring down the humidity in my large bathroom in Florida. The air conditioning system wouldn't clear the steam after our family showers, and we shower a lot with athletes in the house! The unit is very easy to set and operate. It's fairly compact and is unobtrusive in a corner of my cabinet area. It pulls a ton of water from the room and closets, I have to empty the full container twcie a week. It does generate heat as you lower the humidity setting, the temp on the fan goes up. This is not good in FL where we run the A/C year round, but I found that leaving the dehumidifying function at 50% keeps the airflow at around 78F, then as the machine pulls the humdity, the temp cools down. I do wish they made a unit for tropical climates, as this is geared towards damp basements, but I needed a powerful unit for our giant bathroom with 2 closets off it--whoever builds a house with closet doors opening into a giant bathroom is an idiot. The humidity would get in our clothing and we needed a powerful and reasonably priced solution. This is an excellent machine, I only give it 4 stars because it does generate some heated air as it dehumidifies, and we didn't want that feature, but it's tolerable.

Reviewed by: Guitar Maker from Florida

I build guitars as a hobby in Florida . This requires a stable , dry environment, so because of Florida's high humidity, a dehumidifier must be used. This Danby is the best i have ever had, and i have probably gone through at least a half dozen in the last 10 years. I literally have to back it down at times , or it will get the building room too dry!

Customer Q & A

Q1: simple question : the numbers on the top of machine display what? Thanks
A: The left panel displays the current temperature. If you have the timer set, it will display the time remaining before the machine shuts off. The right panel defaults to display the current relative humidity in the room. When you adjust your desired humidity setting the numbers switch over to display what relative humidity you are selecting as your set point then after ten seconds after adjusting it, the display will revert back to showing current relative humidity levels in the room. Hope that helps!

Q2: Have a Danby 70 pint unit for 4 years. For some reason this year the unit will not drain out of attached hose and instead fills the bucket. How can I get it to drain using hose again? Thanks

A: I'm not exactly sure why things would change now unless there was some type of blockage. The model you have was one, that for a time in their production run, Danby found a problem with the direct drain option. Typically though, this issue arose quickly when you began using the machine with the direct drain option. The problem was the two holes/ports where water drips into the bucket. With the hose attached, there was a problem with them not working the way they should. Over the course of late 2009 and even with some holdovers into early 2010, we found a way to fix it, simply by using a tiny rubber stopper. They are only a few cents each and can be found at any local hardware store. After the 2009 production run, Danby did correct the problem, though for you, the time range you're suggesting might mean you have one of those units. I would pull the bucket, and take a look at the two small holes where water drains into the bucket. Pick up a rubber stopper that will fit and insert it into the secondary port if you're facing the machine, the opening on the right. Once you've done this, put the bucket back in and try it. That should fix it, provided there's nothing blocking the second port or drain hose. If you're still having problems, try contacting Danby directly and see if they have any suggestions. Hope that helps!

Q3: When will these be in stock again

A: This particular model? Never. Danby's completed phased this specific model out, and we have exhausted what we had in stock. After three years, they finally decided to give this line a facelift and introduce a new model. As a note, the DDR70A1GP is an identical model with two differences. First, it's newer different model no, and second, it has a different faceplate. So the appearance from the front is different, but what's actually inside the shell is identical to the older DDR7009REE.

Danby Dehumidifier Reviews

Danby Premiere 70 Pint Dehumidifier DDR7009REE Dehumidifier

Danby dehumidifiers have long been the leader in home dehumidification, and Consumer Reports have rated Danby as a Best Buy for large capacity dehumidifiers. This year Danby continues this award winning design with the Premiere line of dehumidifiers. These models differ in capacity and square footage serviced, but each offers efficient water and moisture removal at a reasonable price. In keeping with prior Danby models, the DDR7009REE dehumidifier is one of the best on the market for home dehumidification.

What I liked about the Danby DDR7009REE Dehumidifiers

Quite simply, the Danby 70 pint removes enormous amounts of water from the air. Although we tested this dehumidifier during the hot and humid months of summer, we were surprised when we found ourselves emptying the water reservoir several times throughout the day. In total, the DDR7009REE dehumidifier removed nearly 5 1/2 gallons of water just during an 8 hour test period. Granted, we realize that the conditions in your home are not as extreme as those under which we tested, but the sheer volume of moisture collected was the most impressive feature of these models. Even though this Danby is rated to remove 70 PPD (pints per day), our tests show that this model can exceed this under extreme conditions.

The ease of use was also a decided advantage. All of the Danby Premiere models provide users with full electronic controls, programmable humidity settings, a timer and a remote. When compared to a separate humidity gauge, the humidity readings on the Danby showed some deviation but good compared to the humidistats built into other home dehumidifiers. Auto defrost and restart functions allow the unit to defrost itself when the coils freeze and restart after a power outage.

Despite running non-stop during our testing periods, the Danby models are all quiet for their size. Regardless of fan setting, they produced less noise than comparable models. Additionally, all of the Danby dehumidifiers we sell are Energy Star compliant and use less electricity than most of their competitors.  This combined with a non-ozone depleting refrigerant makes the Danby dehumidifiers some of the best for the environment and your wallet.

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

What I did not like about the Danby DDR7009REE 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 70 as effective for up to 4200 sq. ft. However our tests have found this to be likely less than what Danby advertises. Across our site we have adjusted Danby coverage area by taking into account our product testing results and each units individual CFM (cubic feet per minute - fan speed). Though the Danby 70 pint has a CFM of 324, to ensure adequate water removal of your space we recommend this model for areas around 1000 sq. ft. or less. Depending on your specific conditions, you can likely cover more area, but we would rather err on conservative rather than have you purchase a unit then not have it meet your expectations.

There is little doubt these are heavy. On low pile carpet and hard surfaces the casters save you a good deal of trouble when moving them, but the 70 pint dehumidifier is certainly not an appliance you want to be moving often.

Overall, the Danby Premiere DDR7009REE is the best room dehumidifier on the market for larger areas. Our testing of the Danby Premiere models gave us excellent results with few drawbacks. The performance of the Danby dehumidifiers is what makes them the best available while the ease of use, convenient features and reliability are what keeps pushing Danby to the front of the line when it comes to home dehumidification.
