- Does a great job in removing the moisture from the air, which is what this appliance has been built for. The water collection bucket is large enough (5 litres) and the emptying is easy after a few days of a learning curve.
- The problem I did not expect to be so prevalent is that this appliance blows out the air that is dry but to the expense of such air being too warm. I thought I will use this device in order to improve the conditions in my living room which houses a lot of computer devices. During this summer, I was constantly sweating while in the room, I thought that such was due to high humidity in the room because of the terrible English weather. Now, the humidity has been removed, but the air is like 5 degrees warmer in the room, so I am sweating again, now due to the much higher temperature. So I am now starting to question if this appliance was the right one for my purpose. I know that it will be very effective in winter when the warm air blowing out of the dehumidifier will not be the problem. I could not buy the air-conditioner because that needs an outlet hose installation throughout the window which I cannot do. So, this applicance is definitely not going to help you remove the summer humidity-related sweating, because you will start sweating due to the much higher air temperature. I will see how the applicance performs in the coming winter. I just don't understand while the air is being warmed up before being released into the room, why not just leaving it cold, so it would serve as a proper air conditioner. I wouldn't mind emptying the water collection bucket more often.
