    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.

      Comments about Danby DDR45A2GP 45 Pint Dehumidifier:

      So far the unit has performed as advertised. At this time I have used the dehumidifier for about 2 weeks and so far, I am satisfied with its performance. I live in the north-east so I only run the unit during the summer months. In the winter it will be stored in a temperature controlled basement. I will have a better feel for durability and quality after using it for a couple years.

        Comments about Danby DDR45A2GP 45 Pint Dehumidifier:

        We recently purchased a home and when the humidity kicked in outside we had a huge problem in the basement. The floors were damp and mold was starting to show up on the walls. This little dehumidifier is doing an excellent job. I was amazed at how much moisture was collected and I was empyting the pan twice a day. As a curiosity I hooked up the drain hose and let it drain in the washing machine, after four days the collection of water half filled the washing machine. The amount now is reduced but still collecting and the basement is much more comfortable and dryer with no more mold.

              Comments about Danby DDR45A2GP 45 Pint Dehumidifier:

              Have been using for several weeks and so far so good. Using to dehumidify a 900 sq ft unfinished basement during the warm months in New England. I have it set at 55%, and the (not very large) bucket gets almost full in 24 hours. Digital display of temperature and humidity is good. I've checked the humidity with a sling psychrometer and found the display to be very accurate. Like most newer models, the fan runs all the time, and I guess that probably does a better job of uniformly dehumidifying the space, but it's never silent. I've been disappointed with the longevity of dehumifiers in general - I've had two Sears, a Zenith and a Frigidaire, and some lasted only a year or two. I'm hoping for the best with this Danby, but hedging my bet with the extended warranty - $26.95 for two years seems reasonable.

                Comments about Danby DDR45A2GP 45 Pint Dehumidifier:

                Received the first electric bill and not to our surprise the bill was lower than we expected according to the bill it was 15 dollars less than when we ran the old dehumidifier which only came on when it was required by the humid-stat and the Danby runs all the time. The unit has virtually regulated the temperature level from the upper to lower levels where they are the same, in the past in the summer the temperature downstairs would be 4 to 5 degrees cooler than upstairs. Can't wait to see what it does when the cooler months get here, this could possibly be a cost saver with the constant air circulation. Best of all the humidity is being help at 50% and we are so much more comfortable now.

                    I am a hurricane Sandy victim. I have an unfinished, 880 square ft unfinished basement which floods quite often. Although this is a very good product, I'm returning to purchase a stronger unit as this unit takes long in drying out my cement floor. Otherwise, it's a very good product.

                      We have run a dehumidifier the past 29 years in the Bi-level home. The thing I like best about the Danby, constant humidity reading with continual air flow. This has actually made the lower level of the house more comfortable to live in and actually equalized the temperature on the lower level making it warmer. It hasn't been long enough to get a electric bill to see if that makes a difference but right now it as been working great. This unit easily removes 45 pints in a 24 hour period, so much so that I drilled a hole through the wall so I could hook up the constant drain feature and no longer have to empty the pan. The other nice feature is the ease of removal for the filter real simple to R/C&R.

                        It couldn't be easier...the dehumidifier was shipped free to my house and from the box to operation was less than 20 minutes. I noticed the humidity in my basement was much lower within days and the musty smell is gone. I especially like the fact that this is an energy star appliance.
