Danby is no stranger to the dehumidifier market and has been manufacturing high-quality home appliances for over sixty-five years. They offer a huge range of products and they are known for long lasting appliances at a reasonable price.
The Danby 60-Pint Two Speed Dehumidifier is no exception to Danby’s well-earned reputation and provides consumers with an excellent choice in a larger capacity dehumidifier unit. The specifications on the box state the unit can handle a maximum area of 3,600 square feet which is an extremely generous estimate. It doesn’t have near enough capacity to handle spaces that large, but then again, not many home and office dehumidifiers do.
In spite of the “generous estimate” provided on the box, it does offer a relatively high-level of performance and effective moisture removal for areas that are larger than average. However, users should be aware, when we say larger areas we think it’s best to keep the space limited to approximately 1,000 square feet or less. Of course, this still offers most people more choices in where and how to use the unit than they will ever actually need.
The unit is Energy Star Certified, has two available fan speeds and a convenient automatic fan shutoff feature. The electronic control panel with digital display makes the unit easy to use and offers a range of customizable features such as automatic timers and automatic humidity level management.
This Danby unit comes with everything you need to effectively manage moisture levels in almost any environment. It is equipped for continuous drainage and features a powerful built-in pump that can even move water up if you need to position the hose at a vertical angle. While the built-in pump is an excellent feature Danby even includes two hoses (7 and 16 feet) which is something many manufacturers do not include.
Weighing just under forty-eight pounds does not make the unit ideal if you need a portable dehumidifier. However, it does come with caster wheels as standard equipment which does make it possible to move the unit from room to room without too much hassle.
