Ebac CD60 Dehumidifier Customer Q & A

Ebac CD60 Dehumidifier Product Details
Q1: Can this unit be connected directly to a sump pump?

A: We received this question for three different models, but the answer is going to be the same for all three. Yes and no, and here is why. If you already have a sump pump and pit sump, you can run a small piece of hose from the dehumidifier to the sump. For models with a condensate pump, like the AD850 and CD60, the hose you would need is included with the dehumidifier. So for these models, you can simply run the supplied hose to your sump and you're all set. Now, for any Ebac models that LACK a condensate pump, you will have to supply your own small piece of hose. No hose comes standard with those models, but all have a drain outlet you can attack a hose to - then run to your sump. Now, if you don't have a sump or pit where waste water is collecting. You're going to just want to go with a model that supplies a hose and condensate pump. Then just run the drain line to nearest floor drain or sink. Hope that helps!

Q2: I'm looking for someting to remove the musty smell in a house basement. In the Boston area very humid during the spring and summer. I don't know the square footage. How do I know which unit would be appropriate? Does it require daily monitoring/switching on and off, etc?

A: Does it freeze in that space? If it does, regardless of what unit you go with, you will want to remove it when the weather starts to get cold. In terms of packing the best for you. The most maintenance free type is one that has a condensate pump and humidistat integrated into the machine. OR, if there is something of a grade, you can use any crawlspace dehumidifier and simply let gravity carry the condensate away. Aside from this, nearly all of the crawlspace units we offer will work in most homes. Crawlspaces typically are sized so that all models work. Price is a consideration, but aside from that any of the Ebac's will work. You would set them up, run the condensate line so that the water flows outside of the crawlspace then set the humidstat dial and let it run. It will cycle off and on as needed and aside from annual cleaning, doesn't require any other attention.

Q3: What is the maintenence on a 5 year old Ebac relative dehumitifier? Model#10264FR - U6 Serial #140018470

A: For many of the Ebac dehumidifiers, there is little maintenance involved, and the CD60 is no exception. The User Manual is location further down this page and will go over some of the regular maintenance you'll want to perform to ensure the CD60 is functioning properly. Basically, if you are not having any problems with the unit, just keep the coils clean. The easiest way is to use an air compressor, but cans of compressed air will work too. Try to be gentle with them because they are soft and will bend. If you are experiencing problems, the most common cause is low refrigerant, which means you have a leak somewhere. But aside from keeping the coils clean, the system is essentially a sealed system that requires no lubrication or filter changes, etc.
