A real workhorse dehumidifier
by: Jimmy B (Cherry Log, GA)
"We got our cabin last year during the wettest Spring on record, and the crawl space (about 1000 sq ft, 4-8 ft tall) was always 70%+ humidity, sometimes over 90%. This Ebac CD85 dehumidifier has been running over a year, with occasional breaks in the Winter, keeping the crawl space at 50% humidity le..."

The CD85 is a high capacity dehumidifier, made to operate at high efficiencies by removing moisture from the air through the refrigeration process. The fan draws the moist air through the cold evaporator coil, which cools the air below its dew point. Moisture forms on the evaporator coil and is collected in the condensate tray, which is equipped with an internal condensate pump for easy removal of collected moisture. The cooled air then passes through the hot condenser coil where it is reheated using the same energy removed during the cooling phase, plus the additional heat generated by the compressor. The air is, therefore, discharged from the dehumidifier at a slightly higher temperature with a lower absolute humidity than that which entered. Continuous circulation of air through the dehumidifier gradually reduces the relative humidity within the area. Because the CD ranges of units are equipped with an internal humidistat, they automatically switch on and off to save energy and expense by maintaining the desired level of humidity with intermittent operation.
