When you are having troubles with the air humidity at home, nothing can be as useful as a dehumidifier that can remove the excess air moisture and keep your home clean and safe from mold. The EcoSeb DD122EA-SIMPLE can be a great choice if you want a unit that is practical, energy efficient and easy to use. The reasonable $194 price makes this unit even more attractive.
This is a residential version that comes in a nice and clean white housing with blue glass insertions that have both functional and aesthetic purposes. It’s compact and lightweight, measuring 6.9” x 11.4” x 19.1” and weighing 13.2 pounds. The convenient handle on the top allows you to easily carry it in any room you need to. You can fit it into any interior design and it will not stand out in a negative way due to the clean and simple design. It’s very ergonomic and easy to handle and you will manage to minimize spillage due to the anti-drip tank with a handle that can be removed from the front.
Since it is a desiccant model, it can eliminate more moisture even in the lowest temperatures due to the lack of a compressor that would need to defrost. It can remove up to 15 pints of moisture at cold temperatures so you can use it in garages, offices, storage areas or cold rooms with no more than 34 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, since there is no compressor to run, the device is quiet and lightweight and no harmful gas is emitted during operation. At no more than 34dB, this unit is quiet enough to be used in bedrooms or nurseries without the risk of creating discomfort. The air exhaled into the room once the moisture has been removed is warmer than the ambient room, thus increasing the comfort level with a pleasant warmth.
The product includes an Auto Sensor feature that detects air humidity and adjusts the dehumidifying settings in order to ensure that the proper level of humidity is being maintained. This prevents either power waste or inefficient operating since the unit will adjust to the requirements of the indoor air.
When the water tank is filled with the moisture extracted from the air, you have two options to empty the tank. First, you can easily slide the tank out, lift it from the handle and empty it then put it back and allow the unit to keep operating. There is a water full indicator included to let you know when the water tank needs to be emptied. The second option is the continuous drainage that can be used in rooms whit a drainage or a sewage. It even includes a 3.3 ft. hose that can be placed in a sink or a sewage so the water in the tank will be easily thrown out as it is removed from the air. This feature comes in handy in rooms with high levels of moisture where it would be hard for you to keep emptying the tank.
In case the dehumidifier tilts and falls over, it will automatically turn off to prevent any danger due to the Auto Restart & Tilt Over protection. Plus, the overdry protection makes sure the air doesn’t become too dry in case you are using the unit on the Hi or Laundry mode.

When it comes to saving money and energy, this model is the perfect choice thanks to the many energy efficient features it includes. First, there is the rotary humidistat that allows the unit to reach the right humidity level. Then, there is the Laundry mode that saves energy by operating at only 615 Watts per hour. The Auto Power Saver detects the room temperature and humidity level and adjusts the operating according to the requirements of the room ambient so there will be no energy waste. The device also turns on and off when needed to maximize efficiency and minimize the costs.
Bottom line, this is a convenient, efficient, and user-friendly dehumidifier that will make your home more comfortable and will protect it from mold. The 2-year warranty offered by the manufacturer ensures that you will be using the unit for a long time without having to worry about the possible malfunctions during the first 24 months after the purchase.
