Never had a continuous fan before and was concerned at first. However, this unit is quiet!! I have had other dehumidifiers and when the units turn on, not only do you hear the fan, but the extremely noisy refrigeration unit that removes the moisture. That is the real noise of other units!!! You can barely tell when this unit's compressor turns on! I find the continuous fan a plus in having better air distribution, more accurate humidity monitoring and moisture removal. Great unit and that means super value! Perhaps the ideal unit to perfectly please everyone is to provide a setting option for the fan to run continuously or when the humidistat calls for moisture removal? By the way, I love the auto feature that chooses the most efficient fan setting. Overall, great features, technology, etc. so I am happy!

This dehumidifier does remove water but it will not drain via the hose, only into the bucket. I tried contacting the manufacturer via the email and phone numbers in the manual but they would never return my calls/emails. Sylvane did offer to refund my money so I give them credit for that. I would treat this as a throw away item as if you ever need a part or support from PrimeAire you will not get it. My suggestion is to buy a known name brand and that way you will get some product support once it breaks or does not work correctly.

      You must make sure the bucket is in correctly, otherwise it goes over the handle and you will have a problem with the water that isw inside of it. Over flowing.

                    This unit replaces an older finished
                    basement unit that slowly died. It cleared the humidity from our basement in less than a day and is keeping it dry and comfortable. Time will tell, I suppose, as to its reliability. I am encouraged, though. I was pleased not to have to go to any big box stores and wait for service, not so knowledgable staff, or deal with very limited inventory, or try to find a unit that wasn't a part of the recall notice a few months ago. Your site gave me choices with clear explanations, good reviews and videos.

                          This is a very nice unit. It's attractive, easy to control and empty, and relatively quiet.

                          I've had a lot of different dehumidifiers over the years, and so far this one compares most favorably.

                          I especially like the ability to attach a hose for automated draining. I'm not using that feature for this particular unit, but will need it when I purchase another one for a different location in the near future.

                          I had the unit unpacked and running within 15 minutes of its arrival. It is replacing a different brand unit that was recalled due to fire hazard and has turned out to be much quieter, easier to use, and, thankfully, also easier to empty.

                          Its only been a few weeks so don't know about reliability; but I bought a three year extended warranty for it, so hopefully won't have to worry about replacing it for at least that long.
