Max noise level is 55.3 dB which is ok for these type of dehumidifiers. Even more - you will not hear it because it will be installed far from your living room. Don't have to worry about noise at all.

Maintenance and upkeep

Let's start with an energy consumption. Maximal energy usage for this dehumidifier is 580 watts. While typical 70-pints dehumidifier delivers an Energy Factor (EF) of 1.8 liters of water removed for each kilowatt-hour of electricity used, the Ultra-Aire 70H far exceeds this with an EF of 2.37. This means that it will remove about 29% more water for each dollar you spend.

The dehumidifier doesn't need much maintenance. The filter should be inspected and replaced each three to six months.

The biggest headaches come with the installation. The dehumidifier has a lot of accessories to make installation easier such as ducting kits, dampers, a hanging kit but the Ultra-Aire dehumidifiers should only be installed by professionally qualified jobbers.

Posted in Dehumidifier Reviews, Reviews.

My name is Ryan. I have had a hard time dealing with my allergies. Happily, I found that an air purifier was effective to ease my allergy symptoms. I spent a lot of time researching the best air purifier. I know how hard it can be to find the suitable one.

During the reading period, I also read a lot about humidifiers and dehumidifiers. I learned the mechanisms behind the technologies as well as the manufacturers and organizations within the industry.

I now feel convinced that I have built a guide that shows you all you need to know about air purifiers, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers. So I came up with the idea of creating this website.
