DriEaz PHD 200 Crawlspace Dehumidifier Reviews and QuestionsDri-Eaz PHD200 Dehumidifier Reviews and FAQs

Be the first to review this product. Rate it now.

Customer Q & A

Q1: When installing a dehumidifier in a crawl space should the vents in the crawlspace be closed/sealed ?

A: Generally, sealed. If left open, moist air from outside can continue to circulate into the space causing the dehumidifier to run much more than needed. Moisture constantly seeks a state of equilibrium, so the moisture from outdoor air will continually seek to equalize with the drier air of your crawlspace. Typically spaces are vented to allow for air circulation to help keep the crawlspace dry, but in more damp environments, humid outdoor air and humid crawlspace air is still just that - humid. Hope that helps!

Q2: Does the PHD200 have auto restart in case of a power outage?

A: Yes, once power is restored, the unit will begin working again. IT will display a message, POWER FAILURE, on the LCD display, but this isn't an error. This is just letting you know that power was interrupted.

Q3: What is the square foot capacity of this unit up to what sized crawl space [with a height of 3 feet] will this unit be able to dehumidify? My crawl space is approximately 3,450 square feet. -Scott W-

A: The max coverage for this unit is going to be in the 2000-2200 sq. ft. range. 2400-2500 would be stretching it. For a space the size you're talking about, you'd likely want to look at something like the AprilAire 1850F model since it has a higher CFM, greater extraction and a larger coverage area.

Dri-Eaz PHD 200 Dehumidifier Review

Dri-Eaz PHD200 Dehumidifier

The new Dri-Eaz PHFD200 is a compact, professional-grade dehumidifier specifically designed for confined spaces. When it comes to drying out your crawlspace, basement or attic, your options are no longer limited. With exceptional drying ability, easy-to-use digital controls, a compact, versatile design, and an integrated condensate pump, the Dri-Eaz PHD200 gives you all the necessary tools to keep your home drier and free of mold, mildew odors, and insects. As a replacement for the popular CMC100, the PHD 200 dehumidifier delivers the same solid drying performance but with a few noticeable upgrades. With a new sample model, we ran the PHD 200 in our warehouse then tested it in a crawlspace to see how it would perform in a real world setting.

What I like about the PHD 200 Crawl Space Dehumidifier

The first things you'll notice about the new PHD 200 dehumidifier are its size and weight. While it is compact, just small enough to fit between a standard floor joist or stud, it also carries it weight surprising well. At around 65 lbs. this dehumidifier is literally a little lug! Alliteration aside, the compact nature of dehumidifier makes it ideal for crawlspaces, attics or other confined areas. Since the PHD lacks the panels of the older CMC100, this newer model cannot be configured differently, i.e. move the dry air exhaust. However, it can be ducted or hung with optional duct attachment or joist mounting kits. Overall, it retains the compact and versatile design, just in a slightly different way.

In terms of moisture removal, the Dri-Eaz PHD 200 dehumidifier will pull out a little more moisture than its predecessor, 75 pints per day. Under more humid conditions, you may exceed this. While running the PHD 200 in a section of our warehouse that is NOT climate controlled, we filled two 5-gallon buckets in just over 12 hours of operation. During the test period, conditions in this space were exceptionally warm (low 80's) and humid (starting relative humidity of around 84%). These conditions are not typical, but they do highlight this dehumidifier's ability to extract more moisture under severe conditions.

We also placed this model in the crawlspace of a local resident. With a crawlspace area of 1125 feet, the starting relative humidity in this space was around 72%. After leveling the unit, running the power cord and drain line, we set a target humidity of 50%. At 50% relative humidity, the moisture content in the air is low enough to prevent the active growth of mold, mildew odors and limit certain common household pests. Within two days, the digital humidistat read 50% on the PHD 200. Using an AcuRite Hygrometer, we double checked this and obtained three readings from different sections of the area - 50%, 52% and 49%. Right within our range.

If the space your drying is not conducive to a gravity drain, getting moisture out can often mean a purchasing a dehumidifier AND a condensate pump. The PHD 200 eliminates the need for a separate purchase with an integrated condensate pump and 20 feet of hose. This provides the ability to run the line to a nearby drain, feed it into an existing waste water line or at least run the line through a small hole to the exterior of the space. If the temperatures where you operate the PHD 200 get below freezing during the winter months, a pump purge allows you to expel all the water in the pump reservoir for safe storage.

The digital display and controls on this unit are a big improvement over the more traditional manual knobs or dials. From the LCD display you can determine what the current relative humidity and temperature are (Inlet), what your set point is, how long the dehumidifier has run, what the current amperage draw is for the compressor, and what the cold coil temperature is. This information can help make sure your unit functions properly and diagnose any potential problems. The controls also let you select between Celsius and Fahrenheit and your choice of four languages.

What I do not like about the PHD 200 Crawl Space Dehumidifier

The PHD 200 is slightly heavier than the older CMC100, though the difference is only about 10 lbs. Aside from this, you do lose the ability to configure the PHD200 like you did with the CMC100. The ability to duct and hang this model from a floor joist mitigate this somewhat, but you lose some of the through-the-wall installation ability. The last negative about this unit is likely what I consider the most significant. The CMC100 was Energy Star compliant while the new PHD200 is not. To lessen the effect of this, Dri-Eaz has reduced the CFM of this model. While reducing the CFM, Dri-Eaz was still able to increase the moisture removal and limit the increase in amperage draw to only about one amp. So while it is not quite as efficient, the net effect on your power bill would not be that much more than the Energy Star rated CMC100.

In all, the new Dri-Eaz PHD 200 dehumidifier is an excellent replacement for the CMC100. With better moisture removal, a rugged rotomolded polyethylene body (like those used with their most expensive models), an internal condensate pump and easy-to-use controls, the PHD200 is an excellent fit in any home. It is small enough to be portable and does not require much maintenance. For humidity control in tightest spaces, the Dri-Eaz PHD 200 dehumidifier is a great permanent solution.
