What are the benefits?
Keep moisture levels low
There aren’t too many people who feel comfortable sitting in a humid home, and if you’re one of them, you can find relief with a Danby Dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air and help keep the environment in your home at a more comfortable level. By controlling this dampness, dehumidifiers can prevent permanent damage to your home and possessions caused by excess moisture. We recommend keeping your humidity between 40-50 percent.

When your Danby Dehumidifier operates at low temperatures, the surface of the evaporator may accumulate a layer of frost – reducing overall efficiency. This de-icing feature (auto-defrost) helps improve performance by automatically switching the unit into defrost mode until the frost is melted.
R410A offers greater efficiency – saving you in energy costs – and is much better for the environment than other refrigerants.
Direct drain option
This installation method is great for those looking for a more practical set up and do not want the hassle of having to manually empty out the dehumidifier once the water reaches a predetermined level. This optional feature requires an area with a drain located in the floor.
A dehumidifier’s size is determined by its total capacity to remove moisture within a 24 hour period. By knowing the square footage and the relative moisture level of the area you would like to dehumidify, you can get an idea of the capacity you may need.
