A dehumidifier is useful in many situations and any house requires one at some point, as humidity in the air is a problem often seen in homes due to cooking steam, hot water vapors, laundry drying indoors or construction issues that increase the humidity of the walls. Regardless the reason, if you sense a high level of humidity in the air, you should immediately purchase such a device and the Comfort-Aire BHDP701H will turn out to be a great option when it comes to drying the air you and your family breathe. Discover in the following review how this unit can lower the air moisture and protect your house and your health from the unpleasant effects of air humidity.
This model was designed to be an efficient and practical device that will increase the level of comfort in each home and the portable feature helps it become a stylish decorative item that does a good job removing the moisture in a sleek and a quiet way. The stone white housing makes it perfect for any type of interior design, be it modern or traditional, and the durable wheels help you move it from one room to another without much effort as it weighs 40 pounds and it can be easily rolled on the floor. The electronic touchpad adds style while making it very easy to use and the sight glass window allows you to notice when the water container is filled and needs to be replaced. The turbo fan inside quietly moves so that the air is dried without much noise, so you can even use it in the nursery. It has a built-in pump that efficiently removes condense without overwhelming the design with additional compartments and wires.
When it comes to features that increase the functionality and ease of use, this unit has plenty to brag about. The Low-Temperature Operation technology allows it to operate at low temperatures of 41 degrees F and it goes hand in hand with the Automatic Defrost option which shuts it off if the coil freezes, thus avoiding any damage. A compartment filled with water will never be a problem because additional to the window that allows you to see the level of water, it also includes an Auto Shut-off feature that turns the machine off when the condensate container is full, and a panel light that signals when the bucket is full. The Auto Restart option is great for times when the power runs out, as it automatically starts it after a power outage so you won’t have to worry if you are not at home at the moment. When it comes to ease of use, this device can even be operated by a child, although you should avoid that to happen, since all the controls are placed in sight on an electronic touchpad on top and are clearly labeled so you will easily see and use them. Besides, the maintenance will be easy to perform, as it features a Slide-Out filter mounted on a side that can be easily removed, washed and reused. The built-in pump allows you to attach a hose and drain the water collected into a sewer or in a bucket if you don’t want it to go in the container.
