The Ebac CS60 Dehumidifier is perfect for both heavy duty residential and commercial use. It’s highly efficient at keeping both crawl spaces and basements free of mold and mildew producing moisture, and the manufacturers of this model have managed to combine portability and a compact size without compromising on power. For commercial use it can be used in a variety of spaces such as offices, bars, restaurants and computer rooms.
Due to its compact size and portability, the CS60 is ideal for moisture ridden environments where it can easily be transported between industrial sites to combat problematic areas. The size also lends itself well in hard to reach places such as crawl spaces in the home.
With the ability to remove up to 56 pints of water per day, this unit will work incredibly well in areas over 2000 sq ft in size. It has been fitted with various automatic features to further enhance ease of use. It’s possible to set the desired humidity level and once that has been reached, the unit will automatically switch off. It will then re-start once needed. It will also operate well in temperatures as low as 33 degrees Fahrenheit and has an automatic de-frost function.
What We Liked
- Advanced Humidity Control
With an inbuilt humidistat and automatic shutdown, the CS60 makes reaching the desired level of humidity a breeze. Simply set the level required; once reached the unit will shut-off and automatically re-start again when needed.
- Effective De-Frost System
The CS60 will operate in temperatures as low as 33 degrees Fahrenheit, making it perfect for cold basements, crawl spaces and commercial environments. It also has an automatic de-frost function to further enhance performance.
- Highly Durable
Fitted with a heavy duty steel chassis and powder coated housing, this unit has been built to last.
- Continuous Drainage
Fitted with a drainage hose, the CS60 will continuously remove moisture from the air without the inconvenience of emptying a bucket.
- Easily Transported
The Ebac CS60 is compact in size, weighs just over 60lbs and has been fitted with military style collapsible handles so it can easily be transported.
What We Didn't Like
- Noise Levels
This dehumidifier can be noisy, but considering it’s built for both commercial and heavy duty residential use, the manufacturers have paid more attention to efficiency.
The CS60 couldn’t be considered the ‘prettiest’ unit on the market. However, it will normally be used in areas where looks are not what’s important.
It has to be said that the Ebac CS60 looks like an industrial dehumidifier and has not been designed with aesthetics in mind. However, considering the price and the efficiency with which it does the job that’s required for a dehumidifier, there are not many other models on the market that can match it. It’s highly durable and will perform well in the harshest of environments.Review by AirReflect ©
