junk, just like all the others

Matt Reismeyer, Amazon
10 November 2014
  • Summary: I have owned many dehumidifiers over the last 14 years, usually buying whatever is top-ranked in "Consumer Reports", as was this one. Most of them have lasted less than one year. Well, this one lasted less than 3 months. The worst part is, I can't get my money back; I have to take it in for repair at the nearest facility - which is an hour from home.

Continuous fan wastes energy

Z, sylvane
6 November 2014
  • Summary: As noted above, used in the basement. Much quieter than my old one. I cannot hear this one in the living space above the basement. Seems to dehumidify quite effectively which would suggest energy efficiency. However, the continuous run fan, even on low speed, has to detract from energy efficiency especially during the cooler, less humid months requiring much less dehumidification. Am I to turn it it off and on?
  • Pros: Compact, Ductable, Easy To Set Up, Effective Water Removal, Large Water Bucket, Quiet
  • Cons: Awkward Water Bucket, Fan Runs Continuously, Not Energy Efficient

Comment on the most negative review

Dan on the Run, sylvane
5 November 2014
  • Summary: The Reviewer that gave a negative (two star) comment on the Danby 70 pint dehumidifier did not remove the shipping tape on the tank float. This is why the water exit valve for the hose connection is not activating. This causes water to enter the tank reservoir instead of exiting through the hose connection. Please read the set up instructions and remove all shipping tapes before using. My experience with the Danby 70 pint dehumidifier has been excellent.

Works like a champ.

Claudine "Claudine", Amazon
4 November 2014
  • Summary: I've had the Danby DDR70A2GP for 2 months now and I hope I'm not jinxing the situation when I say that it works like a champ. We had a moldy smell in the house, and I had a dry cough for a while because of asthma. After a couple of days of running it, the mold smell was gone, and the air smelled 'ionized' if you know what I mean.. No smell at all, just cool fresh air.

Maddie, sylvane

  • Summary: Using in an unfinished basement of a farmhouse built in 1931. Removes the moisture and damp smell of a basement. Very efficient. Yes, hear it running from doorway upstairs, but really do not notice it as you get use to it being there. Really like the option of the bucket or drain. Will use the bucket to save on water to water flowers, etc. otherwise using drain in basement. Have had for about 3 months so cannot really make a comment on the performance record.

Excellent product!

  • Summary: I bought one for the main basement and one for the crawl space. Easy to install, and the hose adapter so I don't have to empty the bucket was very much appreciate and easy to set up. It even ams with a length of hose.

Workhorse and durable

Robt Eagle, sylvane
17 October 2014
  • Summary: Have a smaller unit at my home for five years and works as well as the day it arrived. This larger model is in the basement of my building, a three story Victorian built in 1865. Never had a drop of water in the basement until about 3 months ago had a freak storm that dropped 13 inches of rain overnight and the water table rose as never before.

Outstanding dehumidifier!

Lugnut, sylvane
17 October 2014
  • Summary: I was looking around for a nice dehumifier that was going to accomplish two things: 1) be effective 2) was not going to break the bank. I surfed the website and came up with Sylvane. Their product information was much more conplete than other sites and most importatnly they had the best price on the Danby 70 pint dehumidifer. I use this to suck the water out of the air in my lower level and my goodness, it DOES just that.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Set Up, Effective Water Removal, Energy Efficient, Large Water Bucket, Quiet
  • Cons: No Complaints At All
