We use the product in our basement, where we had problems with buckling floors before the use of dehumidifiers. We need it in the summers, when the air is humid, whereas it usually does not need to run in our dry winters.
So far, the product works well and keeps the humidity at the desired level. One feature I really like is the display of the current humidity. Emptying the bucket manually is fairly easy, and it is convenient that there are not any cover-parts that obstruct the water when pouring it out (had that problem with previous products).
The only disadvantage I discovered so far is that it increases the temperature in the room when it is running frequently, thus I took one star away in the rating.
This is our third dehumidifier in our house in 6 1/2 years and so far it worked well through the first summer. However, so did our previous ones - the problems usually come after 2-3 years. So I hope it will not fail us as quickly as our previous ones.

I bought this unit based on reader reviews even though it is a somewhat pricey dehumidifier.
The last dehumidifier I bought only lasted two or three years so decided to try a more expensive one in the hope it would last longer.
While this unit does lower the humidity in my basement to the desired level and maintain it there; the anti-freeze function does not seem to work properly.
The tempature in my basement throughout the summer was 75 to 80 degrees farenheit yet this unit was constantly going into "thaw out" mode.
It works well besides that; although it spends a LOT of time with the compressor off and the fan on high to de-thaw the non-frozen device.

      Comments about Comfort-Aire BHD-701-H Dehumidifier:

      I purchased two Comfort-Aire BHD-501-H Dehumidifiers and both stop functioning within two years. Each dehumidifier cost $200. The warranty is for one year with five years on parts. You must have the original sales receipt and I was told the original box as well. I was told by the parent company Heat Controller, Inc. that I needed to have the unit assessed by an air-conditioning repair shop before Heat Controller, Inc. would consider making any corrections. The assessment was at my own expense. It was cheaper to simply purchase a new unit than to have the assessment. The condenser had failed on both units within two years. I will never purchase another Comfort-Aire Produce.

            This is a the best dehumidifer, and the lightest, we have ever owned and we have had plenty. It does an excellant job getting rid of the musty odor in an old damp stone cellar.

            This is making a huge difference in my comfort during the summer. If it were quieter and didn't put out so much heat, I'd have given it five stars - or more if that were possible.

                  Had to buy this one to replace an identical one that is only two years old. These work extremely well WHEN they work, but then they seem to lose their ability to defrost the coil, rendering them into a useless and environmentally difficult to throw away piece of junk.
