It was easy to set up and get running. It does produce some noise, but much less than I expected. It also doesn't put off as much heat as I expected either. The settings are easy to figure out and it tells you what humidity level you're starting at, as well as the temperature. The only complaint I have about it is that the bucket could be a bit easier to take out and put back in, but I've never really had a dehumidifier where it was. I have a 800-1000sq ft apartment and leave the dehumidifier running while I go to work. The tank is basically full when I return yuck.. so much humidity in the air! but it will have the humidity to where I've set it. I've noticed that keeping the dehumidifier running has helped my asthma symptoms. My allergist also recommended this to me for dust mite allergies as well. Apparently they flourish in humidity levels over 50%, so using a dehumidifier creates a harsher environment for them to survive in.

Danby 70 Pint Dehumidifier Reviews

Danby Premiere 70 Pint Dehumidifier DDR70A2GP Dehumidifier

For over 60 years, Danby has been providing efficient, quality home appliances. Following this tradition of solving everyday home problems, the Danby DDR70A2GP dehumidifier tackles mold, mildew, dust mites and insects by removing excess moisture in the air and lowering humidity levels. Similar to its highly rated predecessor, the DDR7009REE, this latest version of the Danby 70 provides exceptional performance in a reliable package. After setting up test models at home and in our warehouse, this is how the newest Danby dehumidifier fared.

What I liked about the Danby DDR70A1GP Dehumidifiers

The first of the two models was placed in the downstairs of a range/split-level home. The lower floor of the split-level has no basement or crawlspace under it. Often that space has high humidity during the spring/summer and issues with insects throughout the year. The second DDR70A2GP was placed in a rear section of our warehouse (no climate control). Granted, the relative humidity and temperature in the warehouse space is much higher than in the home, but over the course of a 24 hour period, both had to be emptied multiple times. For the warehouse unit, the moisture extracted totaled over 6 gallons in 24 hours, and in the home, the moisture removed topped 2.6 gallons.

In a second run, we used the supplied drain hose to port the dehumidifiers. After elevating each, we ran the hoses into 5 gallon buckets to collect and weigh the water extracted. While temperatures and humidity levels remained about the same for each test, the results were better. In the home, the total came it at 3.3 gallons while in the warehouse the water removed totaled a whopping 11.62 gallons. Granted, your home should never be as humid as the warehouse space, but the results show two things. First, if conditions are right, the Danby 70 pint will remove more humidity than it's rated for. Secondly, if porting a dehumidifier is a viable draining option, it can dramatically increase effectiveness, particularly in very humid spaces. This only makes sense since a continuous drain means the unit never has to stop dehumidifying due to a full reservoir. (as might be the case while you are at work or sleeping cannot empty the tank)

The features of the Danby Premiere dehumidifier are practical and useful. So while it may not sing show tunes or tell you the current time in Rio, what it does offer is the ability to control how long the unit runs, when it will start, an auto-restart function if the power flickers or goes out, and an auto-defrost feature that ensures it continues to run even in cooler temperatures. A built-in humidistat gives you control over the humidity level (set target RH to any five percent increment from 30% to 90%) and provides you with a reading of the current relative humidity in the room. Lastly, two fan speeds give you some control over noise.

In terms of energy usage, the Danby DDR70A2GP is Energy Star qualified, and even with the fan and condenser running fairly steadily, you won't see much of an increase in your power bill. By using R410A refrigerant, the Danby also complies with new environmental regulations that help protect the environment. When these are coupled with an expected lifespan of anywhere from 5-10 years, the Danby 70 pint is well priced and offers a smaller environmental footprint than other models.

While other dehumidifiers simply fill the supplied reservoir and shut off, the DDR70A1GP allows for continual usage through porting. For basements or areas with floor drains, this is a big advantage when gravity is working with you. It allows you to set the unit up, run the condensate line to a nearby drain and essential let it run with little supervision. I have seen with other models that if someone forgets to empty them, they can sit, full of water, and mold and other microbes can begin to grow on the tank and in the water. A supplied hose is about six feet long, but if you need more length, you can cut an old garden hose to fit (the female end of the hose screws directly onto the threaded drain pipe on the back of the Danby.) The direct drain option, if possible in your situation, is really the way to go.

What I did not like about the Danby DDR70A2GP Dehumidifiers

You may find the manufacturer (Danby) and other retailers touting the square footage of this model. Two things: First, square footage is not very accurate since it does NOT tell you the volume of air in the room. Second, effectiveness does not always remain consistent with larger areas. For areas that are 3000 sq. ft. or more, proper dehumidification of the air in that space is difficult without adequate air circulation. Without adequate circulation, the drying process in large spaces can be slow and uneven. This is particularly true in a home. Walls and doors block or slow airflow, so while the first floor of your home may total 2000 sq. ft. a room dehumidifier like this will not effectively dry the entire floor. An open floor plan would help, and proper air circulation would help even more. Based on our experience with this product, 1000 sq. ft. (8000 cu. ft.) is a good measuring stick. Below that, the Danby DDR70A2GP is outstanding. Beyond that, you may not see the drying results you desire. There is always some grey area, but if you have specific questions, please contact customer service or submit an FAQ above. And don't worry, nearly all manufacturers who use sq. ft. as their measurement stretch their numbers a bit.

The fan runs ALL the time on the Danby Dehumidifier. We get a lot of questions about this. The reason why the fan runs continuously is to keep air circulating throughout the space you are drying. So this is normal for the fan to run even though the condenser has turned off. With just the fan running, the Danby uses about as much electricity as a light bulb, so power consumption should not be a concern. Lastly, heat - Air conditioners and dehumidifier operate on the exact same principles. The difference is that the dried air passes over the motor before exiting a dehumidifier. This dried, warmer air will actually draw surrounding moisture in, thereby speeding the dehumidifying process. If the space you are using the Danby in is enclosed, it may actually warm the room.

The Danby DDR70A2GP is an ideal way to reduce humidity in your home and stop mold and mildew growth. The features of the Danby are useful, without fluff, and the performance is some of the best in the industry. Danby's price and performance are two big reasons why it has been recognized by consumer reporting/testing agencies as one of the best dehumidifiers for home use. This dehumidifier also provides the flexibility to collect water in the removable condensate reservoir or to directly drain condensate into a floor, HVAC or other existing drain line to eliminate the need to empty the bucket. If neither of these will work, opt for the basement package to give yourself the ability to push the water horizontally or vertically with no hassle. With few drawbacks, the Danby 70 pint dehumidifier is truly one of your best options for keeping mold, mildew, insects and dust mites in-check in your home.
