Unless you have been shopping for home appliances recently you may not be familiar with the Hisense name. They are a relative newcomer to the dehumidifier and home appliance market as they first began operations in 2001. However, over the last fifteen years, they have introduced a solid lineup of products and continue to expand their product and customer base with each passing year.
While there are several manufacturer names that may be more well-known, Hisense continually offers products that are rated highly by customers and offer excellent overall value. The Hisense 70-Pint DH-70KP1 Dehumidifier is one of their newest offerings and it provides powerful performance at a reasonable price. The 70-pint capacity means it can remove up to seventy pints of moisture from its surrounding environment every twenty-four hours and it is capable of managing the humidity level of spaces up to 1500 square feet.
However, the powerful performance of this unit isn’t the only thing it offers, it also offers a wide range of convenience features as well. The unit comes with a built-in pump and hose which can connect to a nearby drain, outlet or sink. The pump can move collected moisture horizontally and vertically, so even if you need to have a portion of the hose upright to reach a drain, the water will still be efficiently moved through the hose and out.
It comes with a sixteen-pint water storage bucket if choose to not use the continuous drainage feature mentioned above and has an automatic shutoff as well as full storage alert. The control panel is completely digital which provides an easy to use display with a range of customizable features. You can choose from several modes of operation, set automatic timers and enter you preferred humidity level.
Additionally, the unit is one of the quieter seventy-pint capacity units we have come across, making it ideal even for office spaces where noise level can be important.
