Sunpentown Dehumidifier

"We operate a museum that had a room upstairs that was horribly musty. It was so bad that no one wanted to even go in the room. We live in a humid climate and needed a unit that would be able to be vented outside and empty automatically. We have been very pleased and now the room is pleasant to use...."

Description of Sunpentown SD-72PE 70-Pint Dehumidifier with Pump

The Sunpentown SD-72PE dehumidifier offers carefree operation thanks to an internal pump that continuously removes basement moisture. This internal pump and included pump drain hose will push water up to 16 feet and can be easily run out a basement window or into a sump pump or sink. Water can also be automatically emptied into a floor drain by attaching the unit with a water hose. A third option would be to remove water by emptying the internal removable collection bucket with handle for those who prefer to manually empty collected moisture. The SD-72PE dehumidifier features a user friendly, adjustable humidistat for controlling relative humidity levels between 35% and 85%. This Energy Star and eco-friendly dehumidifier also features 2 fan speeds, auto restart with memory, auto shut off when bucket is full, removed or not properly seated, clean filter indicator light and R410a refrigerant. The Sunpentown SD-72PE dehumidifier removes up to 70 pints of moisture per day and will dry a basement up to 1,400 square feet.

The Sunpentown SD-72PE dehumidifier offers customers an economically priced dehumidifier with built-in pump for water removal. You can also drain water through a continuous drainage line or into the collection bucket. This dehumidifier will allow you to remove excess moisture needed for healthier air quality and to prevent the musty smell found in many basements.

Pluses:

  • Built-in condensate pump and included hose for effortless hook-up and water removal which means no more bucket emptying.
  • Meets the new Energy Star requirements
  • Automatic defrost and low temperature operation (as low as 41°F), this dehumidifier will perform in cooler, subterranean environments.
  • Auto restart function ensures that after a power interruption, the dehumidifier will turn itself back on at the original settings that were selected. Perfect for vacation homes.
  • Adjustable humidity control allows you to select your desired humidity level between 35% and 85%. We suggest operating your basement dehumidifier at 45% to prevent mold and mildew as well as that musty basement smell.
  • Easy access, front-loading bucket to remove the water manually.
  • A 16 foot hose is provided for use with the internal pump.

Minuses:

  • Collection bucket is smaller than many competing dehumidifiers but is unlikely to matter if the built-in pump is being used.

Summary:

Like other Sunpentown dehumidifiers we have tested, this is a no-frills, easy-to-operate dehumidifier that is equipped with all the standard features you need for removing excess moisture in basements up to 1,400 square feet. However, the SD-72PE features a built-in pump which will certainly make this dehumidifier appealing to those who are tired of emptying dehumidifier buckets. While Sunpentown is not as well a known brand name as some others offered at AllergyBuyersClub, our product testers have all stated that this dehumidifier offers a very good value for our customers.
