I originally called Sylvane to purchase a different product. The rep who spoke to me took the time to make sure that I was buying the correct product for my needs.
I bought this product for use in the basement of a shore home. I had musty odors & bugs galore. I installed this product and within a week the smell was gone & so were the bugs. I've been using it for about four months with great results.
My only negative comment about the product is it took me several days to find the correct setting for the humidity level. I didn't find it intuitive, but, once it's set you're done!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Works well as long as the humidity control is all the way up. The defrost cycle only kicks after the machine has been running constantly for 55 minutes. If the control is not at maximum and air temp is less than 80 degrees (F) the unit will cycle on and off based on humdity, which is normally fine, but every time it shuts off it restarts that 55 minute timer so that it never goes into defrost mode and will eventually build up a block of ice that will prevent dehumidification. As long as the control is at Max, it works fine but is expensive to run because it never shuts off.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
We have a 900 sq ft crawl space with a plastic-covered dirt floor, a real challenge for any humidity-control measures. There were mildew problems and moisture damage in many items stored there, and a small room dehumidifier proved ineffective. Even though I had read the dimensions of the CS60 before ordering it, I was surprised at its compact size. As the unit would be mounted in the crawl space below our bedroom, I was concerned about the possibility of some noise disturbance, when in fact the unit is so quiet that one barely hears it in the crawl space, itself. Drilling through the cinder block wall for the drain was also a concern, but this was solved by tapping into the existing A/C drain. My on-line research indicated that the CS60 uses less power than other comparable units, but most important is that, even on rainy days, our crawl space humidity now stays in a satisfactory range.
Product does exactly what it's supposed to do - and does it well. Unobtrusive, easy to set up and install. Electrical draw is quite reasonable. Maintains constant cap on humidity level. Ideal for use in basement. Maintenance is minimal.
