Correcting some misinformation

There is misinformation floated in some of the comments. Hopefully this will clear up most of it. As an engineer type, I do more of the detail thing but hey, whatever floats your boat. NOTE: Although I own this model, this is mostly information on dehumidifiers in general. Other reviewers offer detailed specifics so no duplication needed here. This covers 1-how it works; 2-sizing tips; 3-general tips, 4-cautions and user reflections. HOW DEHUMIDIFIRES WORK First, a dehumidifier is just like an air conditioner except for the location of the warm coil [technically the condenser coil]. With an A/C system the warm coil is outside the house [needs a 2nd fan], so an A/C unit has its cooling coil [technically a DX or expansion coil] inside the house [cooling it] and the heat it absorbs from the house air is transferred to the warm coil outside the house. Basically it is simple; the heat in the house is dumped outside. It’s gotta go somewhere! With a dehumidifier, the warm coil is inside, so the air cooled by the cooling coil blows across the warm coil [one fan needed]. Why? What happens? Well the cool air passing through the cool coil is warmed by the warm coil before exiting the unit..
WARNING ABOUT WAITING BEFORE PLUGGING IN AND TURNING ON

I am extremely satisfied with this product. I read many reviews. Some few were quite startling claiming early total failure of this product. I think I understand why early failures happen. My product was delivered and put on my porch completely upside down. WARNING – It is best to wait several days before trying to use this product. The oil in the compressor is VERY thick and if this product is ever anything but straight up and down (bottom down) the oil drains away from where it needs to be in the compressor. When this product is turned on without this wait period – FAILURE IS IMMINENT! I gave it a week before turning it on – it works fantastic. With all this in mind it is puzzling why the manufacturer DID NOT PRINT WARNINGS ON THE BOX TO KEEP IT UPRIGHT. (arrow-this end up). THERE IS NO MENTION IN THE MANUAL ABOUT THE NEED TO WAIT BEFORE TURNING IT ON WHEN IT IS KNOWN TO HAVE BEEN ON ITS SIDE OR UPSIDE DOWN. Error on the side of caution!! Do NOT plug it in or turn it on without waiting at least 2 days.
Works for drying out your house after a flood.

We were one of the affected people in Louisiana that was flooded in Aug 13th of 2016 (9″ of water in our house). After we gutted 2 foot up in our house and removed all the wet floors and sheetrock and insulation, we still needed to get the moisture out of the wood and fans alone wouldn’t do it fast enough. After talking to a neighbor who also flooded, said that they purchased this one and it was filling up the unit every 6 hours, I knew we needed one two. But we didn’t one just one, we bought two of these and as soon as they came in (I had to turn them upright as USPS couldn’t read were it side “This End UP” and had them upside down and let them sit for 3 hours before use) I plugged them in and put them on each end of the house. Well about 6 hours later, I was dumping both of the units out as they were full of water. Over the next week and half, these things stayed running none stop until the moisture was almost gone from the wood. I will say that these things are quite, much quiter then my box fans that were running. In fact these things were so quite to me, the the DW and I could talk in a low voice standing right next to them and not have trouble hearing each other.
Leaked @ 1 year, Easy To Fix, Still Love It 2.5 YEARS LATER – THE UNITS AMAZON SELLS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN RECALL!!!

UPDATE Aug 2017: Nothing to report, running like a charm still after that 1 cleaning, will be taking it apart and cleaning it in a few months when the humidity drops outside (in Alabama that will be late into Sept or Oct) NOTE: 22 Oct 2016 – Just an update to say that after about 3 weeks of heavy use it still works like brand new. I assume I will need to do this every year to prevent leaks and buildup of dust/dirt in the fins which will cause it to pull less humidity for the same amount of running time. I have had this unit for over a year with perfect operation until the other night it started leaking. I was ready to get rid of it but I got to reading the reviews and one of them talked about algae type buildup that had to be cleaned out. So since as far as I was concerned it was already broke so I was not going to make it “more broke” by working on it (I was a equipment technician in an early life). So here is the good and the bad: NOTE: IT WILL LEAK A GOOD BIT OF WATER WHEN YOU REMOVE THE DRAIN CAP IN BACK, THE BACK COVER WON’T COME OFF WITH IT ATTACHED, DO THIS IN AN AREA WHERE WATER WILL NOT CAUSE MORE DAMAGE AND HAVE TOWELS HANDY!!
This is a great dehumidifier.

Quick Review for this Dehumidifier, we recently bought a house with a basement (roughly 800sqft) and decided to get a dehumidifiers, as the same goes, if you have a basement, you also have a dehumidifier. The big question was which one to get, I took some time and went to the big brick stores and found this one on Amazon for less. Here is what I like: The Output air comes out of the top. Pulls about a tank of water a day. The unit is quiet. (a box fan on low is louder) Great design and easy to use. Tells your rooms current humidity level. Here is what I don’t like: Output air is rather warm, but this is true for all dehumidifiers of this type. Unit is heavy, not ideal to take around the house etc. (however it is on wheels and can be rolled if on the same level) Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this unit. We had “basement” smell and after putting this in for a few days, the basement smells fresh and feels great. We were on the fence on ordering one, but so glad we did we are going to order a second for the upstairs.
