Summary: CR top-rated dehumidifier reduced large damp basement from 80+% to 50% in 2 weeks, and further to 30-40% range since. Very effective, quiet. Well-designed - can stand against a wall without reducing airflow. Unit's humidistat doesn't agree with my standalone meter.
Summary: Using in our finished basement and air quality improved overnight. Very strong fan and is very quiet compared to my prior unit. Seems to be working better then I thought it would....probably because my prior unit was not all that good.
Pros: Air Quality Improved Soon, Effective, Energy Efficient, Quiet
Summary: Unit is very quiet compared with past appliances--I borrowed one and it was very loud, unless something was setting on top of it to minimize the vibration. I bought one and it, too, was pretty loud, then it stopped working altogether, so it was returned. No issues with this unit--the hose drain is well-designed, with a downward tilt, and a keeper on the cover.
Summary: Bought to replace my old unit that was recalled. Shopped around for the same newer version as I had. ABT was one of the few places I could find the unit. Works great and would buy another if needed.
Summary: For a basement, this machine is just fine noise-wise. If someone were to sleep near it, it might be a bit loud, but for some it would be white noise. No heavier than it should be. On wheels, easy to manage. Heavy for anyone to lift to counter, but one person did it.
Pros: Compact, Effective, Energy Efficient, Not One Thing Wrong W It, Quiet, Super Effective
