General Tips From Users

*Works best without using the garden hose feature 
Wait four hours to use after delivery in case the package was sitting on its side at any point in the delivery process



The LED display offers a quick and easy way to track the humidity level of the room, room temperature and timer settings. Living in hot, humid climates are more  bearable with reduced humidity in the air so the user-friendly control panel ensures that all the important factors are easy to monitor and to adjust.

This model can remove 70 pints of moisture in 24 hours, so it can successfully reduce moisture from the  most humid rooms, including basements.

As an alternative to emptying the water container, a hose can be connected to the back of the unit for continuous drainage when the unit is unattended fort for man hours at a time.
