Controlling humidity in confined spaces has never been easier when you use the Dri-Eaz CMC100 Compact Dehumidifier. This Energy Star dehumidifier removes 70 pints of damaging moisture per day from tight spaces, including crawlspaces, storage areas, attics, and basements. In addition, the CMC100—alternatively known as the Dri-Eaz Model F391—excels in commercial and industrial applications such as marine environments, warehouses, and factories.
The Dri-Eaz CMC100 Dehumidifier is equipped with many automated functionalities that enable true "set it and forget it" operation. First, this Dri-Eaz dehumidifier controls your humidity automatically without user intervention. Using an onboard digital humidistat, the system maintains your set humidity level by cycling on and off periodically. Therefore, there's no need to continually adjust the dehumidifier settings. This is particularly beneficial if the system is installed in hard-to-reach spaces.
In addition, the Dri-Eaz CMC100 automatically pumps out collected water using an internal condensate pump. To set up pump operation, simply attach the 10-foot condensate hose (included with the unit) to the system's drain outlet and route the hose to a nearby drain, well, or other type of water receptacle.
Lastly, the CMC100 features an automatic defrost mode and automatic low temperature protection. In defrost mode, dehumidifier operation stops if frost builds up on the internal condenser or evaporator coils. Once the frost has melted, it will resume normal operation. In low temperature protection mode, the system ceases operation when the temperature falls below freezing. When the temperature rises above freezing, the unit automatically resumes operation. Both modes help protect the CMC100's internal components from damage.
Along with boasting the shortest vertical clearance of any dehumidifier on the market with a built-in condensate pump, the Dri-Eaz CMC100 Compact Dehumidifier features an interchangeable panel design that allows for multiple airflow configurations. This helps you adapt the system for use on shelves, in small storage areas, and in spaces where standard airflow from the front of the system to the back is not possible. Alternative configurations include:
- Straight-path design, with air flowing from one end of the system to the other in a tunnel-like fashion.
- U-shaped design, with the air intake and air outlet located on one side.
- L-shaped design, with air intake situated on one end of the unit and air outlet on one side.
Energy- and Cost-Saving Operation
In addition to maintaining the humidity level in your indoor space, the Dri-Eaz CMC100 Dehumidifier helps protect the outdoor environment. This crawlspace dehumidifier is Energy Star-rated for efficient operation. This means that the system uses 10 to 20% less energy than comparable non-Energy Star dehumidifiers to remove the same amount of moisture. The CMC100 also makes use of R-410A refrigerant, an environmentally friendly refrigerant that will not deplete ozone. Moreover, the system consumes only 5.3 Amps of power while dehumidifying your space.
Other features of this Dri-Eaz dehumidifier include:
Automatic Restart On Power Failure – Upon a loss of power, the CMC100 will automatically resume operation when power returns.
Ductable Air Outlet – This compact dehumidifier features a 6-inch duct collar for ducting applications
Washable Air Filter – This washable and vacuum-able air filter helps remove harmful allergens and particles from incoming air.
Recessed Handles – Located on the top of the appliance, these handles allow for easy positioning in confined spaces.
Leveling Footpads – Four adjustable footpads help stabilize the dehumidifier when it's placed on an uneven surface.
