Summary:

We found the Sunpentown dehumidifier to be very user-friendly, lightweight and attractive. There are 2 options for disposing the water: manually or via gravity drainage. The 12.5 pint collection bucket is located on the side for easy access and has a built-in side handle for carrying. Its automatic shut-off function will prevent water overflow in case you are not around when the bucket becomes full. Another option is a gravity feed which allows one to set up a drainage hose for disposing the water downward into a nearby drain. What sets this unit apart from other dehumidifiers in its class is its triple air filtration. Its unique ultra-violet germicidal light and titanium dioxide mesh filter will reduce bacteria, mold spores and VOC’s. The washable standard air filter will remove larger allergen particles (such as dust and pollen). Finally, a carbon filter will absorb unpleasant odors. The combination of reliable and efficient dehumidification and filtration allow for the most comfortable and healthiest environment possible. Overall, this is an excellent user friendly dehumidifier for someone who wants to quietly and efficiently remove excess moisture in their bedroom or small area in the basement.
