  • Product Overview

    The Sunpentown SD-40E Dehumidifier with Energy Star is an excellent choice for controlling excess humidity in rooms sized up to 275 sq. ft. The unit features a 40-pint removal capacity under AHAM conditions (60% relative humidity at 80°F), a wide range of humidity settings, and 2 operating speeds. With such a variety of settings, this dehumidifier is sure to bring you flexible relief from damp, musty air.

    Controls Excess Humidity and Its Damaging Effects

    Very often, a too-humid environment becomes a breeding ground for symptom-spawning allergens such as dust mites, mold spores, and mildew. Excessively humid environments are also desirable spots for cockroaches, termites, and other annoying pests. In addition, high moisture conditions can wreak havoc on your wood furniture, wood floors, and other moisture-sensitive materials. Fortunately, Sunpentown's SD-40E Energy Star Dehumidifier helps you control these adverse effects.

    With the unit's touch-button electronic control panel, you can easily adjust your room's humidity in 5% increments, keeping it as low as 35% or as high as 80%. For greater choice in settings, the unit features two separate fan speeds – Normal and Turbo – and a continuous dehumidification mode. Additionally, this Sunpentown dehumidifier operates in temperatures ranging from 41°F to 89°F. That means you'll get reliable performance in a variety of conditions.

    Multiple Drainage Options

    The Sunpentown SD-40E can drain collected water in 2 ways – manual or gravity drainage. To manually drain the unit, simply empty the water collection bucket when it becomes full and replace. To prevent overflow accidents, the dehumidifier is equipped with a full bucket indicator light as well as an automatic shut-off function. The auto shut-off control cuts power to the unit in the event that the water container becomes full, and you are not available to empty it.

    For gravity-guided drainage, the dehumidifier features a continuous drainage port. To set up this configuration, simply connect a drainage hose (not included with the unit) to the port and direct the hose downward into a nearby drain. Collected water will continuously flow out of the unit.

    Energy Star Rated

    Eco-Friendly Operation

    This Sunpentown unit is not only good for controlling excess humidity. It's also good for environment. The SD-40E is Energy Star-rated for efficient operation. That means this model removes the same amount of moisture as comparable units, but does it while using 10-20% less energy. This is possible because of the unit's energy-saving components, including a more efficient refrigeration coil, compressor, and fan.

    The SD-40E also uses a CFC-free refrigerant – R-134a – to help protect the ozone layer. CFC refrigerants, or chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants, have been found to cause rapid ozone depletion. They also contribute largely to the greenhouse effect. The R-134a refrigerant has zero ozone depletion potential.

    Other Key Features

    • 11-Pint Water Container – The larger capacity means you'll make fewer trips to empty the container.
    • Time Delay Auto Protection – For safe, uninterrupted operation.
    • Quiet operation – At its loudest, the unit exerts 54 dB of sound, the equivalent of the sound of a running dishwasher from a few feet away.
    • Lifting Handles – The unit features a retractable lifting handle for easy movement as well as a handle on its removable water container.
    • Washable Air Filter – Helps to remove dust, allergens, and particles from inbound air.
    • Caster Wheels – Helps the unit slide easily from room to room.
    • UL-Approved – Meets UL safety and compliance regulations.
