Ebac Orion Dehumidifier Review

Ebac Orion Dehumidifiers

The Ebac Orion dehumidifier is a sturdy, mobile dehumidifier that will operate under extreme conditions and pull out incredible amounts of moisture from the air. Its secret is its 2 stage cooling process which utilizes an air to air heat exchanger to pre-cool the incoming air before further cooling it as it passes through the evaporator coil to maximize the moisture removal. The result is a removal of up to 105 pints of water per day in a normal environment to 224 plus pints in extreme conditions. This is all done while operating relatively quiet and without using too much electricity. The built in pump and supplied discharge simplifies one’s decision of where to drain all of the water it removes.

Summary:

This is a durable, quiet, mobile dehumidifier for large warehouses, storage rooms and tough flooding jobs. The Ebac Orion is an ideal choice if you need quick and dependable drying power for restoration and water damage projects. Its two large back wheels and extra long power cord make moving between job sites a breeze. Its built-in condensate pump saves time and aggravation by continuously pumping the water up into a sink or out a window. With the Orion, there is no humidistat controls so the unit will just run continuously until manually turned off. However, there is a helpful “hours run meter” which will alert the user on how long the dehumidifier has been running. Furthermore, one can purchase the total humidity controller below if they want a humidistat to regulate the humidity. Overall, we give the Orion a very good plus for everything it provides from its large water removal capacity in cold harsh environments, low energy draw, quiet operation, to its one man portability and sturdy construction.
