The Ivation IVADM45 is one of Ivation’s larger thermo-electric units and can remove up to 25 ounces of moisture per day. Users should take note, the IVADM45 like many thermo-electric units rates moisture removal every 24 hours in ounces, not pints. This is an attempt by the manufacturer to make the performance of the thermo-electric units seem more comparable to compressor based dehumidifiers. While thermo-electric units have their place and many good features to offer, their performance is limited.
The IVADM45 is rated for use in rooms of up to 220 square feet but this is under ideal conditions. If you plan to use this unit in your home or office on a consistent basis then it is probably wise to use it in an area that is significantly under the 220 square foot rating. This will ensure the unit can handle the job and perform moisture removal efficiently. There are many things to like about this unit as long as you do not require too much of a workload from it. It offers very quiet operation making it suitable for any type of environment that is sensitive to background noise. In addition, the unit is very energy efficient compared to compressor-based units.
This unit also offers a built-in humidistat that lets you set your desired level of humidity with the unit automatically monitoring and controlling operations. It comes with a storage tank of 68 ounces which means if it removes a full 25 ounces of moisture per day then you can let it run for almost three days without having to empty the storage bucket.
The built-in humidistat is not a feature you often see on thermo-electric units but it is included on the IVADM45. This allows you to set a desired level of humidity and let the unit automatically control operations.
The Peltier technology offers unparalleled energy efficiency and ultra-quiet operation. While its performance cannot be compared to compressor-based units, if it is kept in an area limited in space then the unit can perform just fine.
Automatic Shut Off Feature
The IVADM45 comes with an indicator light that lets you know when the storage bucket is full and needs to be emptied. Once the storage bucket reaches capacity, the unit will automatically shut off to avoid spills.
The digital humidistat control automatically monitors the humidity level of the surrounding environment and automatically initiates dehumidification based on user preferences.
Good for Use in Smaller Areas Only
While the IVADM45 is one of Ivation’s larger units and rated for use in areas of 220 square feet, it is important to remember this is under ideal conditions. Therefore, it is best to keep its use to smaller areas such as a closet, small bathroom or laundry room.
- Built-in Humidistat with Automatic Monitoring
- Easy Set-Up and Operation
- 68 Ounce Storage Bucket
- Can Remove Up to 25 Ounces of Water per Day
- Extreme Energy Efficiency
- Ultra-Quiet Operation
If you match this unit with the right sized space then there are many things to like. The ultra-quiet operation, extreme energy efficiency and built-in humidistat make using this unit easy and very low maintenance. However, if you push the limits of performance the unit is capable of then you might end up being disappointed. This unit is recommended for those who need moisture removal for a limited area and want a unit that is very quiet as well as energy efficient.
