    I bought the Danby 70 pint dehumidifier for our home last year - it was large and very cumbersome to transfer from room to room so we decided to use it in our basement. The 70 pint unit has always worked great... our humidity levels are between 45-50% and our basement never has that musty smell anymore and we don't have a mold problem either. We love it so much, we decided to buy the Danby 45 pint unit for our upstairs. Even though it's smaller, it does the same great job. No mold, no musty smells and our whole home feels warmer too. The smaller unit is a lot easier to move around; however, it would be great if there was a handle on it so we're not bending over and leaning on the machine just to push it from room to room. It would be easy to install a handle on the back of the machine - something like on luggage where you can pull it up when you need it. Overall it's a fantastic machine - we've never had a problem with it and it's extremely easy to use.

    Have used another brand of 40 pint dehumidifier in the past and really liked it until the motor got VERY noisy. This 45 pint machine is quiet and seems efficient but requires MANY more empties of the tank than the previous one and used in the same room and the same environment. I think the 45 pint capacity for this machine is misleading. The 40 pint tank I previously had was self-contained, easy to remove and empty and didn't have to be emptied (under most conditions) more than once every day or 2! I have to empty this tank at least 2-3 times a day. I've only had this machine for a few weeks but, so far, I'm satisfied with the machine....except for the frequent emptying.

        Product purchased recently, so far so good. The
        only fall-back with the product is the fan continues to run when the humidity level is reached. Product appears to be wasting electricity. Appears a shut-off on the unit is needed.

        Comments about Danby DDR45A2GP 45 Pint Dehumidifier:

        The directions were difficult for me to understnd with a programing on and off. Otherwise the fan runs all the time and the humidification comes on when nessesary?? That seems to be a waste of electric to run the motor 24/7. This is a different function then the traditional humidifier switch turned to the desired humidity level. i'm a Boomer age and thinking i'm ok and up to date, but maybe I just dont 'get it". The product seems to be very well built and predicted reliable.

            The water container on this dehumidifier slides in and out smoothly unlike my old Kenmore. It not only quickly lowers the humidity, but the temperature as well on hot days. Great that it is made in the USA or Canada.

                Installed unit in my 1931 home's basement and it has been humming away full time for over a month. I used the continuous hose feature and it work like a charm. It has dropped the humidity level in the basement to below 50% and really dried it up!
