The EcoSeb DD122EA-CLASSIC desiccant dehumidifier will handle high levels of humidity in low temperatures, a feature that makes it useful for regions with temperatures below zero, as this model blows hot and dry air into the room, which is great for laundries and for rooms that need a touch of warmth, besides the humidity adjustment. At an affordable price of 260$, you will enjoy maximum humidity control, mold and allergens protection and energy efficiency.
The model is compact and lightweight and only weighs 13.2 pounds and it is very easy to move around the house. The small size is influenced by the small water tank that can only hold ½ a gallon of water, which can sometimes be a drawback. However, if you are looking for a small and sleek unit that will work even in low temperatures, this is the one for you. The device is easy to handle and to operate, having a practical handle that allows you to move it and an electronic control panel with buttons that have pictures on them and not words. The side tank is easy to remove and empty and the transparent glass on the side is also useful besides being decorative, as it allows you to check the level of the water so that you will know when to drain it.
It is designed to work silently due to the fact that it has no compressor to make noise, and the warm air blowing feature helps you dry your laundry faster and adds warmth to your house. Additionally, it offers you a specific Laundry mode with three-speed settings that can be adjusted according to your drying needs. The silver nano filter and the ionizer incorporated in this dehumidifier effectively capture airborne allergens, mold spores, bacteria, and other microorganisms and help you reduce the risk of allergic reactions in kids and other sensitive members of your family and you will only have to replace it every 2 years. The device has a 2, 4 and 8 hours timer control feature for maximum convenience and multiple safety features like tilt protection and auto-restart. You should keep in mind that this is a device that will only handle small rooms like bedrooms, living rooms or laundry rooms and not large basements or garages due to the small water tank that gets filled fast. Although the water tank is small, the device comes with a continuous drain outlet and a provided hose that you can attach and let the water drain in a sewer or a sink without worrying it will spill. The Auto Sensor feature senses the humidity level in the room and maintains the proper level depending on the operating mode you selected. The Over-Drying feature keeps the air from getting too dry if you choose a Hi or Laundry mode that can make the air uncomfortably dry.

It is very energy efficient due to the Ecoair’s E7 Technology that optimizes its performance and maximizes the energy saving while it is working. The Auto Toggle Power Saver feature checks the surrounding temperature and humidity and automatically adjusts it to either full power, economic power, and standby modes to help you reduce the consumption. The fact that this device does not use a compressor means there are no harmful gas emissions, therefore you will enjoy an efficient and Eco-friendly unit.
The main disadvantage is that it has a very small tank that holds the water, being able to store 4.2 pints of water, which means you will have to empty it very often. If you use it for the first time in a room with a high level of moist, you will notice that the tank will fill up fast and it will shut down to avoid water spilling and you will have to empty it every 6 hours, but after a couple of days when the humidity s considerably lower, you will be able to let it run for an entire day without having to empty it. However, the continuous draining feature will help you solve this problem.
