My Detailed Comfort-Aire BHD 651-G Dehumidifier Review

The Comfort-Aire BHD 651-G Dehumidifier offers solid performance for an economical price. This unit can pull 65 pints of water from the air in 24 hours.

What I Found Out About the Soleus Air DP1-30-03

The Soleus Air DP1-30-03 dehumidifier is a 30 pint appliance that is perfect for small rooms, basements, and bathrooms. Find out more in my review.
If you need an inexpensive but very efficient moisture reduction device for a space of about 400 square feet, then I have the perfect model for you. The Soleus DP1-30-03 is ideal for drying out damp rooms in your home that are not large enough to need a full 65 or 70 pint capacity model. Why get a larger machine than you need? It costs a lot more up front and will be more expensive to run over time. A smaller …

That was why I was so disturbed last month when I found some rust just inside of the car, near the door. I live on the coast, in a …

The Eva Dry EDV 2200 Is Perfect for Closets and Small Rooms

In my Eva Dry EDV 2200 Dehumidifier review I look at this compact and efficient little device. I’ve found it’s perfect for drying out closets, bathrooms, and small rooms.
Sometimes you don’t need a big, powerful moisture removal device. Often a small efficient model can get the job done. I know I have some closets and a bathroom or two that are really humid. It really doesn’t make sense to put a large 50 or 70 pint model in such a small space. These models are designed for areas of 1,200 square feet or more. I’ve found the best way to dry out smaller spaces …

As I’ve been out and about researching and testing humidity lowering devices for this website I’ve found quite a few really outstanding models, but I have also run into many duds.
