We have used our dehumidifier a few times since purchasing it. We don't have a basement; we bought it because in North Texas it can get very humid, mostly in spring and summer. In winter, we don't have a reason to use it, but we tried it in December after a VERY wet fall. With temperatures not cold enough for the furnace but too warm for AC, the damp air (and a little mold on some closet walls) finally pushed us to get a dehumidifier. This one is easy to use, and it worked just as the instructions said it would. We pulled a good amount of moisture in the bedrooms and bathrooms where we tried it. Bucket was super easy to remove, empty, and replace. You might want to have a rag handy to place under the spout in the unit when you take out the bucket, in case it drips, that happened to us about half the time, but it was not an inconvenience at all. Most of our house is an open floor plan so is probably more square footage than intended for the unit, but we used it anyway and it works, it probably just wouldn't ever shut off in warmer, wetter weather. It's pretty heavy, but the rollers make it easy to move across our floors from place to place. We only have carpeting in two rooms, and there we had to lift it a bit while rolling to move it. You'll hear it operating, but it's not nearly as loud as some reviews made it out to be. If you can live around washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, fans, and HVAC units as we do in a one-story house, you won't notice the dehumidifier.
