We highly recommend the Hisense 70-pint due to the fact that it comes equipped with a built-in pump and thanks to this feature there will not be a reservoir to empty. What we don't like is that the humidity control is way too sensitive, or at least this is something that some users complain about.
Unfortunately, there are many people these days who deal with a quite high humidity level in their homes. This is a problem that can affect your health and not only and which must be solved as soon as possible. The Hisense 70-pint will definitely help you obtain the desired result as it is a very good device. It can be used for spaces up to 500 square feet. Hisense is a reliable manufacturer that guarantees the efficiency of its products. This item is not as affordable as other models in its class, but it is surely worth the money.
The unit is 15 inches wide, 11.4 inches deep, 24.7 inches high, and it measures not more and not less than 46 lbs. The cord measures 42 inches and it can easily be stored on the back of the unit. The bucket has a maximum capacity of 14.4 pints and a shut off capacity of 11.6 pints. The design is quite attractive, with an oval shape and a pleasant white steel painted finish. Unfortunately, other colors are not available. This device doesn’t have grills on the front like other devices in its class have, and this is actually a detail that makes it look quite modern and elegant. The display is a digital one with electronic controls. On this display, you can see the relative humidity or time. Unfortunately, this dehumidifier doesn’t come with a handle, but it does have caster wheels that will allow you to move it with ease from a room to another.
This dehumidifier is without a doubt extremely versatile. It has some wonderful features that together provide you wonderful results. Three operating modes are available: manual set, continuous, and auto dry. There is an adjustable speed, which allows you to choose between 2 speed levels, low and high, and thanks to the built-in pump, there will not be any reservoir to empty. This built-in pump will actually pump the water upward to continuously drain out a basement window using a standard garden hose. The unit comes with a 9 mm diameter drain hose. It also features a 24-hour auto on/off timer and an auto restart that restores the device to the last setting used when the power was disrupted. The full-tank indicator light will let you know when the front-mounted water tank needs to be emptied, and the automatic shut-off feature will actually make it turn off when the 2-gallon water tank is full. This is not everything because this unit also features a washable air filter with a “clean filter” indicator light, and an adjustable humidistat as well, which sense the room moisture levels. In terms of noise, we can say that on the low speed the noise level is 53 dBA, whereas on the high speed the noise level is 55 dBA. With this device, up to 70 pints of moisture will be removed from the air at every 24 hours. Another great feature is that this unit can actually operate at very low temperatures, as low as 38F°.
Unfortunately, there is no information available regarding the exact energy consumption of this unit.
However, the timer and auto shut off features are absolutely great as they actually help you save money on your energy bills. Furthermore, the manufacturer guarantees that it is eco-friendly, which means it will certainly not cost you too much money to operate it, due to the fact that it is an Energy Star rated product.
