This unit replaced a Frigidaire dehumidifier with similar specs which appeared to have reached the end of its service life after about 20 months. So far, after 3 1/2 weeks in our basement, this LG has more than met expectations. It absorbs humidity at least as efficiently, appears to be more solidly built, is more attractive (though heavier), runs more quietly, and has neither stalled nor presented any error messages. The air pumped out by the unit does not noticeably warm the room.
We're using it only with a hose and so can't comment on performance with the built-in tank. We find that the height of the drain plug makes it easy for gravity to bring the water down through the hose and into the drain.
Overall we're delighted with the LG's performance.
Haven’t had it that long but so far it’s great. We have a smaller LG unit as well that just keeps going so when it came time to replace our newer Frigidaire we decided to get another LG. For a dehumidifier it is quiet and very effective. Our basement feels great now!
I bought this after losing our AC and our open windows caused the humidity to skyrocket. I chose LG over GE strictly because of how sleek it looks. Fits right into our modern home. I setup the dehumidifier upstairs first where the humidity was in the 70s for some rooms. It ran for a few hours and I emptied it before bed. I let it run overnight and the next morning it was full and humidity was down to 50. It’s since been downstairs and our humidity is kept at 45-50. It’s a little on the loud side but not bad. I’d compare the noise level to a window unit AC and we turn it off while watching TV. I plan on moving it to the basement soon with the continuous drain attachment. So far it’s been the perfect dehumidifier.
Live in a 800 square foot apartment in a basement. This unit was perfect for it. Within the hour it was less muggy and the room even felt cooler. Easy to use and blends into the background. Easy decision, get this one. Don’t look further. My cat loves it too.
We bought this around Christmas for our basement and we're so pleased with it! The basement is always cold and damp..a room you dont really want to spend time in...but with this dehumidifier..it pulls buckets of water out of the air..so impressed! We leave it running nonstop..it makes a little music note sound when bucket full..I dump it and it's back to work. You will be pleased!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This dehumidifier is extremely effective and powerful! It easily drops humidity level in our home minutes. I was initially surprised at how much moisture this pulls out of the air so quickly. The unit feels very sturdy and well made. The controls are clear and easy to use -.the timer and variable fan speeds are both great features. It is also really easy to empty the water collection bin. Great built in handle, and just tilt to reinstall. Overall, this is a great dehumidifier and I definitely recommend it!
Pros: Style/Design, Features/Settings, Performance, Quality, easy to use
I live in a very humid area and this device makes the house much more comfortable. It works quite well and isn’t too noisy. Emptying the water tray is a snap and really let’s you see just how much water is in the air, even inside an air conditioned house.
