I purchased this unit to help with the mold/mildrew smells that developed in my home after a very humid summer in Wisconsin. The unit pulled a lot of water out of the air, and helped with the smell. To keep on top of it, I have to continue to run it. When I shut it off, the smell eventually comes back. Overall, I am pleased with the product. I have a large, single story home (no basement) which is spread out and I will probably buy another unit so I don't have to keep moving this one around. I need to empty it 2x per day, as I have no drain available to use the continous feature. It makes noise about equal to my box fan on the number 2 setting. It does heat up the room, which I don't like about it, so my air conditioner is on more. The unit shuts off when the humidity level I set is reached and when the bucket is full, which is nice. The unit sometimes switches to the turbo mode and the indicator shows a code P1, not sure what that means, the manual doesn't say either. I think it has to do with the compressor, but it resolves itself and returns to my settings. If I do buy another unit, I will definitely consider the same one. Tip, buy the largest one you can afford, so it pulls out enough water and will shut off and safe energy. If you buy too small, it will run too often or all the time and really use energy and heat up the room more. Hope this helps you with your decision.
