This Ivation 70-Pint Dehumidifier is highly rated and one of the company’s most powerful units in their product line. It’s packed with convenience features, offers top-notch performance and is easy to use even if you are not “tech savvy”.
The unit is rated to handle spaces of up to 4,500 square feet, but this rating like many others offered by various manufacturers is assuming ideal conditions exist. Unfortunately, ideal conditions rarely exist and there are very few, if any, 70-pint dehumidifiers that could effectively handle 4,500 square feet. However, it certainly can handle very large spaces, but consumers are probably wise to use it for areas of approximately 2,500 square feet or less for the best results.
This Ivation unit can capture a full 70-pints of moisture from the air every twenty-four hours which means it has enough power and performance to handle almost any environment. In addition to its big performance, it is relatively portable as well. It only weighs forty pounds which is very light for a 70-pint capacity unit, especially one that includes all the features that this unit offers.
The 10-pint storage tank is somewhat small compared to the high-powered moisture removal this unit can offer. However, that is typical among most dehumidifiers and this unit alleviates most of the issue by including continuous drainage as a core feature.
It has a full LCD display that lets you control timer settings, preferred humidity level, view current humidity level, choose from two fan speeds and a whole range of other adjustable settings.
|Full set of convenience features||Small water storage tank compared to average daily moisture collection|
|Easy to setup and use|
|Powerful performance and can handle large spaces|
Continuous drainage allows you this unit to connect to an exterior drain or sink and alleviates any need to use or empty the water collection storage tank. This adds a significant amount of user convenience, especially when dealing with a large capacity dehumidifier.
The LCD display gives a user complete control over the unit’s operation and settings. You can quickly retrieve information with a glance such as desired humidity settings, current humidity level and room temperature.
Auto defrost allows the unit to continue operating at maximum efficiency avoiding wasted energy and periods of poor performance.
