      Answer

      I don't have a specific answer, but I can share my experience. I bought a 50 pint dehumidifier. I glanced at what area it covered -- it said 3000. Well, I did not fully understand or maybe I didn't read carefully and it turns out that is cubic square feet. Turns out that is about right for my condo which is 1050 square feet. Hope that helps.

      Cools the temperature of a room?   (9 Answers)

      I'm looking for a device which is not an AC neither a fan that can cool the air temperature of my room. I already have a Dyson fan and my room is still super hot and would not like to buy an AC or a portable one. Would a dehumidifier work? Thank you.

        Answer

        Air conditioners act like dehumidifiers and remove the humidity but also blow air through the chilled A coil in your furnace which goes into the home through your registers. The dehumidifier only remove humidity, however, removed humidity makes the living space more comfortable. You will still need to supplement this with air conditioning. For example 74 degree air with 43% humidity feels as comfortable as 71 degree air with 57% humidity. Removing humidity is a must for comfort. Your air conditioner fights the humidity that is rising from your basement.

          Yes it is on wheels. They aren't heavy duty but work fine on our cement basement floor. Its a little tougher to push on carpet but all dehumidifiers seem that way in my opinion.

          • Question
            Is there a reason why this dehumidifier says in the name and in the description that it removes 30 pints per day when the specs say the following: Moisture Removal Capacity - 15 pints per day. Is this a mistake or the usual marketing BS?   (1 Answer)

              No. It has a separate drain, but not a pump.

              A regular garden hose. 3 prong is needed for safety since water is involved.

                Hi Ussi5674! I was able to see that the dehumidifier is covered by a limited one-year warranty and a limited 2-5 year warranty on the sealed system (the compressor, condenser, evaporator and tubing). -CiCi

              Can the wheels be removed and the height of the unit, is that measurement including the wheel portion? Have a specific space to put it in, and it makes a difference. It's perfect size if wheels are not on.   (2 Answers)

                The castors on the bottom of the unit are removable. They will take about 1 inch off of the total height. I did not have a measuring tape ready so I cannot confirm the height without the castors.
