Flooding Water DamageAs a lifelong resident of the Southeastern United States, I am all too familiar with the delicate balance of humidity and coolness necessary to stay comfortable during steamy summer months. To achieve this harmony, many people look for air treatment solutions such as dehumidifiers to remove uncomfortable and potentially harmful excess moisture from their homes. With so many of these appliances on the market, how do you know which one is the best value?

A leading consumer reporting agency recently ranked two Danby dehumidifiers offered by Sylvane among their top picks for efficient, cost-effective moisture removal options. The Danby DDR6009REE ranked among the top five for large-capacity dehumidifiers, and the Danby DDR5009REE ranked among the top five as well for medium-capacity dehumidifiers.

The agency’s rankings were based on the following criteria:

  • Price
  • Tank Size (pints)
  • Claimed Pints per Day of Moisture Removal
  • Actual Pints per Day of Moisture Removal
  • Efficiency
  • Humidistat Accuracy
  • Noise
  • Digital Display
  • Frost Control
  • Timer

Danby DDR6009REE DehumidifierIn addition to being a top-rated dehumidifier for large or very wet spaces, the Danby DDR6009REE was named a Best Buy by the consumer reporting agency. This distinction means that this dehumidifier offers the best combination of price and performance. Featuring automatic defrost, multiple drainage options, an LED display, and eco-friendly enhancements such as R-410A refrigerant and recycled packaging, this dehumidifier is truly an exceptional value.

Danby DDR5009REE DehumidifierThe Danby DDR5009REE also received additional recognition by being named a Recommended model. To receive this honor, the Danby DDR5009REE had to go above and beyond simply removing unwanted moisture from damp or wet medium to small spaces. The included remote control and easy-to-read digital display really helped this medium capacity dehumidifier shine in terms of usability.
