The IVADM35 is a thermo-electric unit which means it does not use a compressor to operate like traditional dehumidifiers. This offers excellent energy efficiency and makes it a good fit for small spaces like a closet, bathroom or laundry room but also reduces performance. A similar compressor based unit will remove up to five hundred ounces of moisture from the air each day while this unit is only capable of removing 20 ounces, obviously a big difference.
The unit is rated for use in rooms that are approximately two hundred square feet in size but users are probably best of using it in rooms that are about half that size or even smaller for the best performance. The IVADM35 is a basic unit that offers manual operation without many of the high-end convenience controls of other units. It has a manual on/off switch, which allows the unit to operate until it is powered off or the storage tank is full. This allows extremely easy operation without any requirement for learning about different settings or complicated control panels.
The unit is very portable as it weighs only five pounds and it offers a very attractive price point retailing for under $100.
Easy to Use
The IVADM35 is easy to use and does not require a lot of time to learn complicated controls panels or settings.
Weighing only five pounds, the unit is an excellent choice if portability is a key feature you are looking for in a dehumidifier unit.
Because the unit is thermo-electric and does not have a compressor it is very energy efficient. It uses very little energy while dehumidifying a space.
The IVADM35 will automatically shut off once the tank is completely full and needs to be emptied. This adds convenience and avoids spills that can be messy.
The unit can only remove about 20 ounces of moisture from the surrounding environment each day. This will be fine for a small laundry room, closet or bathroom but not suitable for larger spaces.

The IVADM35 has many things to like such as the convenient auto-shut off feature, its light weight and its simplicity. While additional features can sometimes be nice to have, they often come with a high price and are complicated to learn. This dehumidifier keeps things simple and straightforward. It efficiently removes moisture in small spaces without the hassle of having to learn about complicated features. While it is somewhat limited in performance it is good at what it was designed for and comes with a small price tag.
