Danby Premiere DDR60A3GP 60-Pint Dehumidifier Review

The dehumidifier has one of the best price/performance ratings within 51-75 pints dehumidifiers category. It can remove up to 60 pints of moisture in the 24-hour term. I have calculated that Danby Premiere DDR60A3GP practical room size is 1000 square feet (93 square meters). This device is the only one in the class with an internal condensate pump and drain hose included.

Design and Size 

First, I have to say that this dehumidifier comes very well packaged and the setup instructions are easy to follow.

Danby DDR60A3GP has an elegant, portable design, it weighs 40 pounds (19 kilograms) that are less than most of the competitors. The design enables to move freely throughout your residence. The casters and carrying handles makes it even more simple to do.

On the top of the Danby, DDR60A3GP dehumidifier is a soft-touch (electronic) control panel with a lot of functions and dehumidified dry air vent. In front of the device are a moist air intake, air filter, and bucket.

Overall, it is well built; with no rattles or poor finish.

Height x width x depth is 24 x 15 x 12 inches.

Features

Danby DDR60A3GP has everything the dehumidifier might have. It has 5 out of 5 scores in the features rating category.

  • Removable water container. This s not something special. It has 15 pints (7 liters) of the large removable water tank.
  • Internal condensate pump. This is a great feature that other dehumidifiers don’t have in this class. This function makes it possible to empty condensate vertically if needed.
  • The device has a humidistat, the adjustable range is within 30% RH to 90% RH. The display shows the current humidistat.
  • Automatic defrost function with defrost light.
  • Timer with the function to set a specific time when to turn off the dehumidifier.
  • C/F button switches screen between Celsius and Fahrenheit.
  • An automatic restart allows the dehumidifier to continue to operate with the default settings once power returns.
  • Full bucket light illuminates when the water tank is full.
  • Remote control with power on/off button, fan speed key, timer key, and temperature switch button.
  • Washable air filter

Noise level

Noise level is similar to other dehumidifiers. Danby DDR60A3GP has 2 fan speeds and the highest has a noise level of 55 decibels. That’s similar to sounds in a medium home. Some people say it’s noisy, some say it’s not.

Maintenance and upkeep

If you will use a water container to remove water then you will have to empty containers 2-4 times per day. It could be very annoying. If you will use drain hose then you don’t need any maintenance.

The air filter must be checked and cleaned regularly – every 2 weeks for maximum operating efficiency. The cleaning process is easy. Filter comes out with one hand movement. Clean filter with a vacuum cleaner or wash it with clean water and dry with a dry cloth.

Danby DDR60A3GP is Energy Star-rated for higher efficiency, money-saving performance. Max’s energy usage is 640W (Average in class is more than 700W).

Summary

Danby Premiere DDR60A3GP 60-Pint Dehumidifier with Pump is a really great choice between an affordable and powerful dehumidifier. It has awesome features, it looks great and uses less energy than competitors.

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.
