  • Product Overview

    From unhealthy mold to musty odors and damp spaces - excess humidity can wreak havoc on your home, leading to costly structural damage and an increase in your allergy symptoms. The Danby DDR60A2GP Dehumidifier eliminates these problems, removing 60 pints of moisture per day from large spaces measuring up to 3,600 square feet. Great for basements, living rooms, and bedrooms, the Danby Premiere DDR60A2GP is loaded with features that make dehumidifying your space easier than ever. Plus, it's Energy Star-rated for efficient, money-saving operation.


    Auto-Sensing Adjustable Humidistat

    Dehumidifying problem areas is easier than ever with the Danby 60-Pint Dehumidifier. Simply set your desired humidity level from 30% to 90%, adjusting it in 5% increments, and select from 1 of 2 fan speeds. We recommend setting your humidity between 45 and 50% to maintain a healthy, mold-free home. Both the dehumidifier's compressor and fan will run until your humidity setting is reached. Once it's reached, the compressor and fan shut off and run intermittently to maintain your desired humidity. Please note that the fan will shut off after a short 3 to 5 minute delay.

    User-Friendly and Portable

    The Danby DDR60A2GP Dehumidifier features a user-friendly electronic control panel and a portable design that allows you to move it freely throughout your home. Use the pushbutton controls to set your humidity, choose a fan speed, view your current humidity level, and program the 24-hour shutoff timer. Easy-to-see indicator lights also let you know when the dehumidifier tank is full or running in defrost mode. Plus, with built-in carrying handles on each side and 4 easy-roll casters, you can move the DDR60A2GP  around your home for humidity control wherever it’s needed.

    Additional Features

    • Dual Drainage Options - Drain the dehumidifier manually by emptying the tank or attach the included drain hose to the drain port for continuous gravity drainage.
    •  
    • 24-Hour Shutoff Timer – Use the timer to program a shutoff time up to 24 hours in advance to conserve power.
    •  
    • Automatic Restart – Should a power failure occur, the DDR60A2GP will resume operating in the default factory setting of 60% humidity on the lowest fan speed once power returns for peace of mind.
    •  
    • Automatic Defrost – In temperatures below 41 degrees F, frost may build up on the evaporator coils. When this happens, the dehumidifier shuts off its compressor and enters defrost mode automatically to melt frost quickly and resume normal operation.
    •  
    • Washable Air Filter – A washable air filter helps remove dust and allergens from the air and keeps the dehumidifier running efficiently.
    •  
    • Quiet Operation – At its highest fan speed, the Danby 60-Pint Dehumidifier has a noise level of 55 decibels, equivalent to sounds in an average home.
    •  
    • Environmentally Friendly Design – This model uses eco-friendly R-410A refrigerant, which does not deplete ozone. It’s also Energy Star-rated for more efficient, money-saving operation over comparable non-Energy Star dehumidifiers.

    Summary

    With auto-sensing humidity control, dual drainage options, and user-friendly controls, the Danby DDR60A2GP Dehumidifier gets your home's humidity problems under control quickly in medium to large spaces.

    What Customers Love

    • Easy Dehumidifying – Simply set your desired humidity level and the dehumidifier maintains that level throughout your space by cycling the compressor on and off.
    • Efficient Operation – Energy Star dehumidifiers like this model are built with more efficient refrigeration coils, compressors, and fans so they use less energy to dehumidify your space and keep your operating costs in check.

    Things to Consider

    • Need a Pump? – Consider adding a condensate pump if continuous gravity drainage or manual emptying isn’t realistic in your space.

      Purchased it 7/2013 and never owned a Danby product before. I had owned 2 other brand name dehumidifiers and they both had issues, recalls, and or failed prematurely. I never heard of Danby until I started searching. They had the best warranty so I figured I would give them a try. I liked the styling, price, and overall functionality, and that I could order it online and have it delivered in 1-2 days. The only thing I don't really like is that the fan runs continuously, even when the compressor is not running. So it's not the best thing for occupied spaces. However, I run it downstairs in my workshop so it works out great as the fan keeps the air circulated; I think that might be why it runs all the time - it may be designed to keep a constant accurate sample of the air so the humidity can be regulated better to the set point. Oh, almost forgot ... I also liked the easy to hook up external drain/hose that you can route to a drain or sump pump, that is optional to use AND that the optional hose IS included with the dehumidifier.

      The dehumidifier is running constantly to fight to keep our humidity level in our basement at the recommended 50%. I have yet to find a cost-effective product to easily handle the moisture in our basement. I expect it to wear out before the extended warranty so I hope it was worth the extra money! I will say that it is working well to remove mold and mildew and damp/moldy smells in the basement. :)

        Quiet, efficient and doesn't get hot. Have used other brands in the past - they're noisy and throw off a lot of heat. Danby is the only brand to consider.

              Easy to set up and to use. Efficient and doesn't make much noise. After a couple of days in use, the new doors in the basement didn't "stick" anymore. Not much difference on the electric bill either.

              I have a Media Room in my basement and then a half basement. I have had a dehumidifier in there since the house was built and it is not overly damp but will smell if not dehumidified. This unit had the damp smell gone in a day and a half. I liked the auto shutoff when you have reach the humidity level desired. Great unit for the price.

                Old dehumidifier was blowing fuses and we needed something to dry out our basement. This machine is thirsty and keeps pulling the moisture out of the air. Glad to walk downstairs and have fresh, dry air.

                    This seems to be a quality crafted product. It's nice that the drain hose is included, as I have purchased other dehumidifiers which did not include one. The gravity drain feature works consistently. The fan is quiet on LOW speed, which is the setting it will be on most of the time. Another nice feature is the digital display shows the temperature as well as the humidity level.

                      I use the dehumidifier in a laundry room whose floor slopes down to a floor drain. Depending on which way the humidifier is facing, water can leak from its base. The floor is about 1.8 degrees from horizontal.(This happens when the bucket is in use; I don't know whether it would happen with the drain hose attached.)

                          We placed this in our basement to keep moisture down. Pleasantly surprised at how quiet it is compared to our previous dehumidifiers. The fan does run continuously, but for us that's OK as it keep the air moving and thus reduces the chance of mold/mildew forming. We've had this model for only a month, so I don't know about the durability. Therefore, I give it four stars - if it proves to be durable over time (and I think it will), then five stars would be appropriate.
