  • Very Powerful: can dehumidify an area up to 1500 square feet
  • Useful built-in features: hours run meter and extra long power cord
  • Durable in harsh environments: dehumidifier has an all galvanized interior and epoxy coated steel chassis and housing so it will last
  • Low temperature operation: hot gas defrost is a great feature of these Ebac dehumidifiers, and particularly important in cold basements or unheated areas that require constant dehumidification down to 33 degrees
  • Rugged wheels and integral handle for easy transport


  • Does not come with an adjustable humidistat, however the optional humidistat controller sold below can help power the dehumidifier on and off based on the desired humidity level
  • The BD80 does not come with a drainage hose but the BD80XE model has an internal condensate pump with 25 feet of PVC drain hose


The Ebac BD80 and BD80-XE dehumidifiers are similar to the Ebac CD60 unit, except they do not have an adjustable humidistat. However, these dehumidifiers are more mobile with wheels and a handle, and designed to be moved easily from room to room. Features such as hours run meter, hot gas defrost, a rugged exterior, and low temperature operation make these dehumidifiers an excellent choice for industrial and commercial moisture removal needs. We wish they had supplied the drainage hose for the BD80 but for a little more you can get the XE model with the internal condensate pump and 25 feet of hose. These models are the right choice for someone looking for a powerful yet compact and mobile dehumidifier for single or multiple rooms taking up to 1500 square feet of space.
