Your Pre-Buy Checklist


Considerations Before You Purchase a Dehumidifier✔ Specifically, where will you be using the dehumidifier? (basement, crawlspace, bedroom, construction site?)

✔ What are the dimensions of the space where the unit will be used? (square feet, is the ceiling the standard 8ft.? cubic feet?)

✔ What is the room primarily used for? (storage, living quarters, housing your HVAC? indoor pool?)

✔ In what area of the country are you located? (region, temperature, and overall climate)

✔ What is your budget for this dehumidifier? (are you looking to spend two hundred dollars or two thousand dollars?)

✔ Do you want to use the drain bucket or do you want to port your dehumidifier? (emptying the water reservoir versus having a continuous drain line installed, or do you want a unit with a condensate pump versus one without a pump?)

✔ How severe is your moisture problem? (do you have mold? a musty smell? standing water?)
