DeLonghi has been providing high-quality home appliances for many years and they are well-known in the dehumidifier market as a leading manufacturer. Dehumidifiers come in a wide range of capacities but a 45-pint unit such as this DeLonghi model is an excellent size to fit most average sized homes, offices and recreational spaces of all types.
The unit can handle spaces of up to 2,000 square feet with ideal conditions but you are probably best served using this unit in a space of 1,500 square feet or less, especially if you live in a location with higher humidity levels. The DeLonghi DD45PE offers powerful performance that can remove up to forty-five pints of moisture from its surrounding environment each day and includes a long list of features that will impress even the most demanding consumers.
The water storage bucket is a bit on the small side at only 12-pints. This means if the unit is operating at full capacity you can’t even capture a half day of moisture without having to empty the bucket. This is not uncommon in the dehumidifier market as all units have a limited amount of space and the storage tanks can only be so big. However, this unit alleviates much of the issue with the limited size storage tank by offering continuous drainage with a built-in pump.
It comes with an extra-long sixteen-foot hose which can attach to an outlet or be routed to drain or sink. This allows continuous drainage of collected moisture and no need to monitor the water level of the storage tank or worry about the bucket becoming too full. Additionally, the built-in pump can move collected moisture horizontally as well as vertically. This gives you plenty of flexibility when it comes to choosing how to best route the hose.
This unit includes caster wheels making it easy to move it between rooms and offers a digital control panel that gives you easy access to a wide range of settings. You can set automatic timers, your desired humidity level, monitor temperatures and utilize your choice of two fan speeds. The unit is Energy Star Certified and the filter is washable.
