For your home
or office, spring and summer humidity can make even air conditioned rooms feel sticky, and modern HVAC units are simply not built to cool and remove the excess moisture that can lead to
mold growth. So what do you do? Most people opt for a room dehumidifier, and while they work at removing excess humidity, these are often bulky, heavy and loud. The Stadler Form Albert
dehumidifier eliminates each of these problems while keeping your home of office comfortable and free of excess moisture. The Albert is a refrigerant style dehumidifier, but you would never
guess it by how quietly it operates! An easy-to-read LED screen gives you accurate humidity readings in the room and allows you to set a timer, adjust the desired humidity, set your
fan speed, and even dim the display for use at night. Oscillating louvers keep air circulating around the room more efficiently, and two water removal options provide flexibility. Lightweight,
the Albert has a set of integrated casters that makes moving it from room to room easy and simple.
There are a lot of room dehumidifiers available today, but despite the choices available, there is only one Stadler Form Albert dehumidifier. Treat yourself to
award winning design and an array of practical and convenient features, all while keeping your home healthy!
Stadler Form Albert Dehumidifier
Stadler Form broke several molds when they made the Albert dehumidifier. Not only did they come up with an award winning design, but they managed to incorporate style and
luxury into a home appliance rarely associated with either of these things! Lightweight and built for medium to large rooms in your home or office, the Stadler Form
Albert can remove 43 pints of moisture per day, quietly and effectively. With a bevy of useful and intelligently designed features, let's take a look at the Albert and
what makes this room dehumidifier so special.
What I like about the Stadler Form Albert
Quiet Operation - One of the most common complaints about room dehumidifiers is the noise. If you have moisture problems
in the living spaces of your home or office, traditional room dehumidifiers can add a significant amount of noise. A high CFM can help circulate air better, through
larger spaces, but often creates enough noise that running these dehumidifiers on high is as if someone was practicing the piano in the room next to you. This kind of
noise makes it nearly impossible to run on high at night while you sleep, while watching TV or trying to work. The Albert is different. On low it is literally whisper
quiet, and even at its HIGHEST fan setting, it creates LESS noise than comparable models on their LOWEST speed. The Albert dehumidifier can run during the day and through
the night without disturbing even light sleepers.
Modern Controls & Contemporary Visual Appeal - As soon as the turn the Albert on, you will likely be drawn to the
LED display. As the control center for this unit, you can set things like the fan speed, desired humidity level, or a 24 hour timer. If you simply need the
dehumidifier to get the room as dry as possible, set it to continuous operation. You can even set the louvers to stay in a fixed position or
oscillate for more even airflow throughout the room. The display is easy to read, and night time isn't a problem with a sleep mode that dims the display for light
sensitive sleepers. Use the dial on the right to adjust your settings, and a small array of indicator lights let you know when the tank is full, if Albert
is defrosting and what your fan speed is. The controls are intuitive, extremely user friendly, and blend in well with the modern look and overall
feel of the Albert. The black and white color scheme with the smooth lines and digital controls all come together to a very contemporary
Energy Efficiency - With a lower CFM fan, the Albert room dehumidifier consumes about 1/3 less power
than comparable 45 pint dehumidifiers. While this model has not been submitted for Energy Star qualification yet, the Albert has been rated "AAA", best
in its class of dehumidifiers, when independently tested a the University of Lucerne against other dehumidifier models. This mean substantial savings in your
power bill throughout the course of dehumidifier, and even more if you need to operate a dehumidifier throughout the year.
Lightweight & Mobile - At 35lbs. the Albert is lighter than most comparable 45 pint dehumidifier models. And though
the design of this dehumidifier makes it appear is if it sits on a stylish pedestal, the reality is there are caster conveniently hidden underneath the unit. These
two things combine to make the Albert very easy to move from room to room.
Water Drainage Options - Most room dehumidifiers come standard with a water bucket to collect the condensate that is being
removed from the air, and the Albert is no exception. Located on the right side, the buckets tucks away until full, then when you remove it, the collapsible
handle springs up and a splashguard helps to prevent spilling it. Lift the splashguard and provide some water for your favorite potted plants! If you are looking for an
easier route that does not involve emptying a bucket, use the seven feet of supplied hose to port the Albert. Remove the water tank, then reach into the space where the tank
sits to find a small, spring-loaded, rubber stopper. Open it to provide access to the metal drain tube. Then run the hose through the back of the unit and firmly affix it
to the metal drain tube. Lastly, run the hose to your nearest floor drain or into a condensate pump. Do this and you'll never have to worry about emptying a bucket again!
Style and Design - Though you may need a functional home appliance most people prefer ones that blend into the decor of their
home or the room. The Stadler Form Albert does this and more. With contemporary appeal, smooth lines and crisp features, the Albert fits right in with modern
decor. The LED display and louvers that hide flush with the top create a seamless, sophisticated appearance that is simply not found in other home dehumidifiers. This
visual appeal and design is what made the Albert dehumidifier a Red Dot Design Award winner in 2013. The Red Dot Design Award is an international product design award that
receives thousands of product entries from over 50 countries annually.
What I did not like about the Stadler Form Albert
Despite all of the positives, there are two drawbacks that I notice with the Albert. First, I wish the capacity was higher. Granted, this would likely increase, the noise,
weight and power consumption, but it would also make it better suited for very large spaces. As it stands, place it within the confines of its effective range, 650 sq. ft., and you
will have no problems controlling moisture.
Secondly, I do wish the warranty was longer. For a rather expensive, luxury home dehumidifier, I would have expected a two or three year warranty instead of the
single year that comes standard with the Stadler Form Albert dehumidifier.
In all, if you need a dehumidifier to keep your indoor humidity level in check but want a luxury home appliance that looks and feels right at home in a modern,
contemporary home, the Stadler Form Albert dehumidifier is the right model for you. With unmatched design and features, whisper-quiet operation and versatile
water removal options, the Albert is the ideal way to keep your home or office healthier without sacrificing looks and style or adding additional noise.
