Danby 45 pint dehumidifier sits neatly in the middle
The range covers operational areas from less than 2,000 sq. ft. to greater than 3,000 sq. ft. with moisture capturing capacities running from 25 pints to 70 pints.
All Danby dehumidifiers are Energy Star® compliant and also carry the R134A refrigerant standard for protection against damage to the environment.
This makes the entire Danby dehumidifier range hugely appealing to people who love eco-friendly products.
A capacity of 45 pints over any 24 hour period takes this model out of the small and friendly category; it means to be taken seriously.
A 2,500 sq. ft space can be covered, which is large enough for most residential uses. The counterpoint to this enlarged facility is that this unit weighs 33 lbs which is heavier than other smaller dehumidifiers. Nonetheless, the unit has easy roll casters to manoeuvre it around a large space without too much expended effort.
When it comes to flexible control, this unit has it all.
An electronic control facility on the top of the unit via a digital keypad and the LED display makes it a breeze to change settings. The dehumidification option has two speeds which are selectable and the internal fan also has two speeds.
Dehumidifiers often have at least one fan installed that runs when there is no excess moisture nearby. However, Danby takes a different approach by running the fan at all times when the unit is powered up.
The company’s logic behind this is that with a still body of air near the unit, the humidity reading will not accurately reflect whether the room is humid but only the areas closest to the unit.
Instead, they keep the fan running which better circulates the air within the room, and in turn it is expected to deliver a more accurate moisture reading. In so doing, the unit should correctly switch the dehumidifier facility on and off when it is truly needed.
Drainage can be handled one of two ways. Either collection within the machine or using an external drainage option which allows for continuous operation.
An automatic de-icer stops ice forming inside the coils. Unusually, this unit is able to operate in a modified form even down to temperatures as low as 5° C (41°F) thanks to its low temperature feature.
The timer is extremely helpful for things like condensation that can form on windows with early morning frost and other predictable events that call for a dehumidifier to solve the problem only at certain times of the day.
The Danby Premier DDR45A1GP 45 pint dehumidifier is one of the stronger products in the Danby range.
Quiet in operation, easily movable, with high capacity and effective control features using the interface at the top of the unit. Dual fan speeds and removable air filters keep the air clean wherever the dehumidifier is installed.
Being energy efficient too, it will surely save on energy bills over some of the less Eco friendly alternatives on the market.If you enjoyed this article, you might also like…DeLonghi DE400 40 Pint Dehumidifier
