    HI-E Dry 100 Dehumidifier - Made in the USA

    Manufactured by Madison, Wisconsin-based Therma-Stor—a provider of efficient and cost-effective dehumidifiers—the Hi-E Dry 100 Dehumidifier helps you get a handle on humidity problems in areas measuring up to 2,500 square feet. Equipped with an internal condensate pump and a high-efficiency compressor, this dehumidifier removes 106 pints of moisture per day under AHAM conditions and 172 pints at 90% saturation and 90 degrees F. The system excels as a standalone dehumidifier or as part of a ducted application and includes an array of special features for easy operation.

    For dehumidification in large spaces, it's best to get a consultation tailored to your specific environment. Please call our product experts at 1-800-934-9194 for a free consultation and product recommendation.

    The Hi-E Dry 100 Dehumidifier, also known as Hi-E Dry Model #4029730, comes with everything you need to begin eliminating excess moisture from your large space. Along with the dehumidifier, this package includes:

    • Power Cord (6 feet)
    • Caster Wheels (4)
    • Internal Condensate Pump (installed in unit)
    • Condensate Hose (20 feet)
    • MERV-11 Air Filter and Foam Pre-Filter
    • User's Manual

    The Dehumidifying Process

    During the dehumidification process, the Hi-E Dry Model 100 uses a refrigeration system to remove moisture from incoming air. Air is pulled into the unit through an inlet located on top of its housing and cooled to below its dew point as it passes across an evaporator coil. As a result of this cooling process, moisture is condensed into a liquid and directed into the condensate hose to be pumped out of the unit. Once the incoming air is cooled and dehumidified, it is used to pre-cool the next incoming air stream. This pre-cooling process increases the Model 100's efficiency by as much as 200%. Following the pre-cooling stage, processed air is reheated as it passes over a condenser coil and discharged back into your environment using the outlet located on the side of the system.

    Key Features

    This Hi-E Dry dehumidifier includes a variety of useful features designed to foster easy and flexible operation. These include:

    • Manual Humidistat – The Model 100 dehumidifier is controlled by a manual humidistat with positive On/Off settings and a variable humidity range from 20% to 80%.
    • Automatic Humidity Control – The Hi-E Dry 100 runs continuously until the relative humidity is reduced to the level specified on the manual humidistat dial.
    • Internal Condensate Pump – The system is equipped with an internal condensate pump that is capable of lifting collected condensate 17 feet vertically. A 20-foot condensate hose is included.
    • Independent Blower Switch – The system features a blower switch that allows for continuous fan operation that is independent of the dehumidifier.
    • Low Temperature Operation – This commercial dehumidifier operates effectively in temperatures as low as 33 degrees F.
    • Automatic Defrost Cycle – If frost forms on the dehumidifier's cooling coil during operation, the automatic defrost system will initiate a timed cycle to melt the frost and resume normal dehumidifying operation.
    • Eco-Friendly Refrigerant – This Hi-E Dry dehumidifier uses R-410A refrigerant, an environmentally friendly refrigerant that will not deplete ozone.
    • Dual Air Filters – The Hi-E Dry Model 100 features a 2-inch-thick pleated MERV-11 air filter and foam pre-filter to help remove harmful particles and allergens from incoming air.
    • Easy Portability – Four easy-roll caster wheels allow you to move the unit easily around your space.
    • Power Cord – The Hi-E Dry 100's factory-installed power cord is 6-feet long and plugs into a common 15-amp circuit.

    Ducting Options

    In addition to standalone operation, the Hi-E Dry 100 supports several ducting configurations that further boost the appliance's flexibility in your environment. Ducting the system allows you to dehumidify multiple spaces at once or conceal the dehumidifier in a storage space while still powerfully dehumidifying your humid area. With the optional duct collar kit, you can

    • Duct multiple rooms in a space to allow dehumidified air to flow simultaneously.
    • Duct a single room and direct the system to blow dehumidified air into another space.
    • When used as a pool dehumidifier, the Model 100 can be placed in a nearby mechanical closet, ducted to pull incoming air in through the top of the unit, and positioned to exhaust dehumidified air into your pool area. This helps cut down on noise and maintains the aesthetics of your pool space.

    In addition, you can use the optional remote dehumidistat accessory to control humidity in a remote ducted space. When installed, the dehumidistat activates the dehumidifier when the humidity level in the remote space rises above a set threshold. This saves energy by prompting the system to operate only when necessary. It also frees you from having to adjust the unit's operation to suit ambient conditions.

    Lower Operating Cost, Higher Energy Savings

    The Hi-E Dry 100 uses a compact refrigeration system that requires a smaller electrical load. Therefore, this industrial dehumidifier is able to plug into a standard 110/120-Volt, 15-Amp grounded outlet. During operation, it draws just 12 Amps of electricity while removing two to three times more moisture per kilowatt hour than comparable commercial dehumidifiers. This can result in significant annual energy savings. Combine this savings with the lower equipment cost you'll incur (over other high-capacity dehumidifiers), and you will experience even more savings.

    Popular Applications

    Among its popular basement and pool applications, the Hi-E Dry 100 is an effective solution in these applications:

    • Health/Fitness: Gymnasiums, hospitals, health clubs, therapy rooms, locker rooms, spas, skating rinks, and allergy control sites.
    • Utilities: Water treatment plants, pumping stations, power plants, sanitation plants, well houses, switching stations, and telecommunication centers.
    • Archiving: Museums, libraries, art galleries, record storage, and film and tape storage.
    • Food/Drug: Cheese factories, bakeries, pharmaceutical labs, food drying, canning plants, restaurants and bars, supermarkets, and meat packaging.
    • Manufacturing: Tool and die shops, paper and pulp, production, powder blending, packaging areas, plastic molding, and processing.

          Comments about Hi-E Dry 100 Dehumidifier:

          I am a guitar builder and I have to maintain a shop humidity of 42-47%. The HI-E DRY 100 works great for that. Within 72hrs my humidity had dropped from 70% down to 39% with the unit only working at 1/2 the maximum setting. The unit does its job well in my 1100sqft shop.
          After about three weeks of use black specs started showing up in the condensation drain line. I emailed the manufacturer and received no response. A week later I called and left three voicemails with the manufacturer after being passed around from person to person. Finally on my fourth call the customer service rep had remembered me calling several days prior and placed me on hold for 15 minutes until he found out that the black specs were leftovers from the manufacturing process. He stated that this was not a problem. I had assumed as much but considering the price of the unit and how new it was I wanted to be absolutely for certain. The unit works great but the manufactures technical support is lacking.

          Comments about Hi-E Dry 100 Dehumidifier:

          Solved my problem. Before getting this unit I had to tear out molded drywall and replace in the basement of my new home (before even moving in!). Has been working perfectly for two years. It isn't quiet but doesn't bother me. It also helps circulate air in three rooms of basement and dehumidifies my entire house, upstairs included. My home is cool in the summer with AC unit set at 77 degrees!! Can also be easily rolled around eventhough this is a big unit. VERY WELL MADE AND MADE IN THE USA (which is why I sellected this unit).

              Comments about Hi-E Dry 100 Dehumidifier:

              Received my Hi-E 100 Dehumidifier about 2 weeks ago. I have an insulated garage with a severe moisture problem. It has problems with water wicking up through the slab. It is 1000 square feet with an 11 foot ceiling. Without a dehumidifier the floor will have standing water all summer long. So far the dehumidifier has done a good job keeping the floor dry. My only complaint is the drainage hose. It is wimpy clear plastic tubing that kinks very easily. My unit came with the hose permanently kinked where it exits the unit, which of course inhibits water drainage. It doesn't look easy to change. I think that a connection for a garden hose would work much better.
