The Delonghi DD45P Pump Dehumidifier has the capacity to remove 45 pints of moisture from the air every day. This makes it perfect for average / medium sized rooms in the home that suffer from the effects of humidity. It will also help add to a more comfortable environment when temperatures are hot and sticky, because it’s equipped with a fan only option as well as dehumidification.
This dehumidifier from Delonghi has been designed with versatility in mind. It offers two drainage options. The first is a 14 pint capacity tank that can easily be removed and comes with a transparent water level indicator to the front. The second option allows for continuous drainage; equipped with a 3 foot hose and an in-built pump, you can easily drain the collected water, even upward when necessary.
Should anything go wrong that can cause a water overflow, the DD45P will automatically sound an alarm and power off. In addition, this model has an easily accessible and washable filter that traps various impurities in the air. This helps keep the atmosphere in the room clean and extends the life of your dehumidifier.
What We Liked
- Set It and Forget It
Delonghi has intelligently installed a 24 hour timer in the DD45P, which is very useful if you need dehumidification when you’re not at home.
- Intuitive Control Panel
The DD45P has a full functional LCD control panel located at the top with easy to use soft touch controls. From here, you can set the ideal humidity level, view the temperature and humidity settings as well as make use of the included humidistat and 2 power options.
This unit is energy star rated and also includes an R-410A refrigerant both of which save on energy. The refrigerant is also safe for the environment because it does not produce ozone.
Fitted with easy to roll casters and convenient carry handles, moving this unit is a breeze. Unlike other models in this bracket, you can also place the DD45P against a wall.
- Integrated Pump
With the in-built pump you can easily pump the water out of the basement or through a window so you never have to empty a bucket.
What We Didn't Like
If the power fails, you will have to manually power the DD45P back on, however, it does store the original mode that was previously set.
The DD45P can produce some heat when in the dehumidification mode, but it has to be noted that warm air carries less moisture and this helps lower humidity.
Delonghi has long been a respected manufacturer in the electrical appliance industry and the DD45P 45 pint dehumidifier has not let them down. It rates well for its ability to remove large amounts of moisture from the air in a variety of places throughout the home. Two drainage options are included because continuous drainage is important in places like basements. This model is a great buy for people who are looking for a cleaner, less humid atmosphere and want a product that lasts.Review by AirReflect ©
