I got the 50 pint version and it works great. However, a few things to note:

1. The "pint" quantity refers to the amount of moisture it collects over the course of 24 hours (I think), not the size of the reservoir. My reservoir is filled every 24 hours.

2. It uses a huge amount of electricity. Our electric bill jumped about 40%.

3. If I had to do it again, I would get the one from Costco with a pump so I could hook up a hose and just have it continually drain instead of having to dump the reservoir every day.

Seems like a good unit, though.

If your electric bill went up by 40% just for using a dehumidifier then you have another (much bigger) problem.

Like what? We got a new electric panel when we moved in 5 years ago and the dehumidifier is plugged into a standard wall outlet. I've heard other people say that these are energy hogs.

I bought the 70 pint version last year and didn't really notice a jump in the electric bill.
Also, since these are coming in different pint sizes now, they may be a newer version and not exactly the same as the ones from last year.

I have the 50 pint version and it uses 600 watts when the condenser is on which isn't that much (compared to like 1,500 watts with my wall AC unit)... either you've got a lot of humidity to the point where the condenser is going constantly or there's other factors in play. 40% increase is a lot regardless.

Well, like I said, it fills up every day, so I empty it every day and start it up again, so it is essentially running 24-7.

Can't you use a drain hose with this model?

Hmmm...I didn't think there was. There might be a rear outlet, but unless it has a pump, the drain will have to be lower than the unit. I was going to run hose out a window.

"
Q: QuestionHow many watts of electricity do the 35 pint and 50 pint units use when running?
Asked 2 months ago by PickyShopper.

A:Answer Electric consumption per unit is specified as: 20 pt. is 270 Watts, 35 pt. is 380 Watts, 50 pt. is 545 Watts. Assuming continuous operation at the national average of 10.60 cents per kilowatt hour the cost to operate is. 20 pt. cost $250.71/year. 35 pt. cost $352.85/year. 35 pt. cost $506.07/year. Assuming 50% daily operation at the national average of 10.60 cents per kilowatt hour the cost to operate is. 20 pt. cost $125.36/year. 35 pt. cost $176.43/year. 35 pt. cost $253.03/year."

So if your dehumidifier was running 24/7... it cost you $30 a month to run...

Your bill before the dehumidifier was $45 a month? That's slick!
