I have a 10′ x 12′ attic area that doesn’t have much air circulation and gets rather humid during those hotter months. Since I store many of my belongings there I wanted to keep the humidity levels down and prevent mold growth, musty smells and any other potential damage. This dehumidifier is about the size of a shoebox and fitted nicely in the corner of the room. It was extremely easy to set up and only takes a simple on/off button to operate. It is basically silent with a small fan noise but this wasn’t a problem since it’s in an area where nobody is living in. After running for 24 hours I went to see how it did and noticed that it extracted about a 1/2 cup of water (this gave me the idea that it was working properly). Over the course of a few days, it kept on removing the excess moisture and I noticed the room didn’t feel as wet and sticky. For once it didn’t feel like the humidity and moisture was just sitting there wreaking havoc on my belongings.
I ran this unit almost everyday 24/7 during the summer and it ran efficiently without any major issues. There was one moment where it sounded like the fan was beginning to fail but I turned it off, removed the tank, placed it back in and waited an hour before turning on. When I started it back up, the noise went away and it continued to operate perfectly fine. Overall, I felt comfortable knowing that this tiny unit was doing the trick with any additional moisture that was being generated during one of the most humid summers we’ve had in a few years.
Slowly but surely this mini-dehumidifier will reduce humidity levels in smaller enclosed rooms, such as closets and food pantries. If you are trying to dehumidify a bedroom or larger areas, you will probably want to use one of our larger residential dehumidifiers.
