Danby Dehumidifier Reviews: Choosing The Best

To help you make the right choice, I’ve compiled a review of Danby dehumidifiers. Luckily I’ve done the hard work and research for you!

Here is Home Health Living’s Danby premier dehumidifier reviews- all the Danby dehumidifiers review in one easy-to-read post.

Dampness doesn’t just occur in smaller rooms- large rooms are also susceptible to mold and mildew growth.

That’s why it’s important to know the size of the area you need to dehumidify. For a large room or space, the Danby DDR70B3WP dehumidifier, also known as a Danby 70-pint dehumidifier, is the best option for you.

The dehumidifier can hold up to 70 pints per 24 hours. For those from other parts of the world, 70 pints is the equivalent to around 33.1 litres. This makes the dehumidifier work best in an area of up to 4500 square feet.

There is a direct drain feature so that the dehumidifier can automatically empty the water and you can have continuous use. This is handy if you are using the dehumidifier in a space that you don’t often visit, such as a basement or crawl space.

And while the Danby 70-pint holds a lot of moisture, it has an Energy Star rating and uses an environmentally-friendly R410a refrigerant. Not only will this dehumidifier be kind to your energy bills, it is also safe for the environment.

You can also control the dehumidifier’s fan speed with two settings available: high and low. Control is via the electronic digital panel.

Just like on the coils of a refrigerator, ice can build up on a dehumidifier’s coils. To prevent this problem, Danby has included a de-icing feature to ensure that the coils remain ice-free.

The dehumidifier has a low-temperature feature which means that you can use it in areas where the temperature is as low as 41F (or 5C).

The Danby 70-pint dehumidifier is portable, so it can be moved around quite easily thanks to its castor wheels.
