  • Attractive exterior: this dehumidifier is one of our most attractive looking units for public spaces
  • Washable air filters: 2 included with dehumidifier for dust and odor control
  • Low noise level – cross flow blower for quiet operation- sound similar to a quiet conversation (in between a whisper and a normal conversation level)
  • Low operating temperature: Ebac AD850E dehumidifiers run down to 41°F, which is an added bonus for cold conditions
  • High quality construction: all of the essential wiring is tightly sealed inside the cabinet to protect them from the moisture and chemicals
  • Flexible positioning: the fact that these dehumidifiers can be wall mounted is a big plus, to keep them out of the way for space saving reasons
  • Energy efficient: only draws about 3.5 amps/hr when dehumidifiers are running
  • Multiple fan speeds: 3 fan speeds allow for energy savings when only a certain amount of dehumidification is needed
  • Built in condensate pump with supplied drainage hose makes re-locating the moisture that is removed very easy
  • Internal adjustable humidistat allows the selection of the desired humidity so it will run until it is reached and resume dehumidifying when it goes back up


  • The units are not wheel mounted and do not have carry handles
  • Expensive, but for good reason, as these units are durable, powerful, attractive, and include an internal pump


Being used to Ebac’s rugged, industrial looking design we were almost fooled when we first looked at the AD850E’s attractive, streamlined, modern design. Upon further scrutiny we realized this is a serious dehumidifier that can remove as much as 20 gallons of moisture from the air in extreme conditions. As you take a closer look you discover it has washable air filters, built in pump, an internal adjustable humidistat, automatic defrost, and the same sturdy construction as the other Ebac models possess. About the only thing we could find fault with was that there are no casters or carry handles so it is not the easiest dehumidifier to transport or re-locate. Also, this model is a bit pricey but you get a lot for the money when you realize it can even be used in a room with an indoor swimming pool and/or spa. This is possible due to the design of the wiring which is protected from the moisture and the chemicals by being housed separately in its own compartment. The bottom line is that the AD850E provides the moisture removal power of a heavy duty industrial dehumidifier without looking like one.
