Comparison between models
There are many options for dehumidifiers with a pump in the market. To decide which is the best humidifier with a pump of all, we evaluate each team in these 4 categories:
- Power consumption of dehumidifier with pump
- Functionalities of the dehumidifier with pump
- Easy to use
First, we will elaborate on each category and how each model compares with the others. And in the end, we present the results summarized in a table.
1. Power consumption of best dehumidifier with pump 2020
There is a big difference in the electrical consumption of the dehumidifiers that we analyze, ranging from 745 to 950 Watts. The two models of the manufacturer Frigidaire are those that spend less electricity, with a consumption of only 745 Watts. The model that spends more electricity is Whynter RPD-702WP, with a consumption of 950 Watts.
2. Functionalities of the best dehumidifier with pump 2020
2.1 Operating temperature range
This is a category where all the models we study have the same functionality. All models of dehumidifiers presented here can operate in a temperature range of 5 to 35 ° C.
2.2 Low-temperature operation
That the dehumidifier can work at low temperatures is very important if you are going to use the dehumidifier in cold environments. Fortunately, all models analyzed can operate at low temperatures without problems. The lowest temperature at which they can operate is 5 ° C.
These dehumidifiers also have an automatic defrost system. If the equipment detects that ice formed on the compressor, this system is activated to melt it.
2.3 Antibacterial filter
All equipment tested has a filter before the fan, to remove impurities from the air before the air enters the dehumidifier. Among the particles that are removed are dust, hair of people and pets, and dandruff.
In addition to removing solid particles, the filters have antibacterial properties. With which the growth of bacteria, fungi, and mold is inhibited.
All this makes the air in your environment cleaner and healthier.
2.4 Number of fan speeds
All models of dehumidifiers we analyze have 2 fan speed options, with the exception of a Frigidaire model. The Frigidaire FFAD7033R1 has 3 fan speed options.
2.5 Water receptacle size
This is a characteristic in which there is variability between the models of dehumidifiers that we analyze. The capacity of the water container ranges from 12 to 18 pints. The team with the smallest size is the HME HME020031N with a 12-pin container. The team with the largest size is the Whynter RPD-702WP.
2.6 Continuous operation
Dehumidifiers can operate continuously. A hose is connected to the back of the appliance and the water goes directly to the drain instead of accumulating in the container.
This has the advantage that you no longer have to worry about filling the container and the dehumidifier turns off until you empty the water.
In continuous operation, the dehumidifier can work without stopping removing water from the environment.
All the dehumidifiers we analyze can operate continuously as long as the drain and hose are at a lower height than the dehumidifier.
2.7 Internal water pump
If you want to use the dehumidifier continuously, but the drain is at a higher height than the equipment, then you need it to have an internal water pump.
Only three of the models analyzed have an internal pump.
Choose one of these models to have more flexibility when disposing of water.
3. Easy to use – Best Dehumidifier with pump 2020
3.1 Control type
There are two types of control systems in dehumidifiers, digital control system and mechanical control system.
The mechanical control system consists of a knob that is rotated to select the speed, for example.
The digital control system consists of several buttons, to control the target humidity that the dehumidifier is to maintain, to select the fan speed and to set the timer. This type of system also has an LED display to see the humidity value of the environment.
All dehumidifiers we analyze have a digital control system.
All 70 pints dehumidifiers that we analyze are very similar in size and weight. In addition, all have four wheels at the bottom, which makes it very easy to move them.
4. Best dehumidifier with pump 2020 Certifications
All models are Energy Star certified. And they comply with AHAM performance guidelines.
The best dehumidifier of 70 pints, is in our opinion the Frigidaire FFAD7033R1. The main reason we chose it is that its electricity consumption is the lowest of all. And this is very important if you are interested in saving electricity and that the electric bill does not come very expensive.
The second reason is that it has more features, it is the only equipment with three fan speeds. And while the size of the water container is not the largest, it is also not the smallest.
The only disadvantage of this equipment is that it does not have a pump, which can be limiting for some people. If you are one of them, then we recommend the following model.[/su_column][/su_row]
The HME HME020031N is the best pump dehumidifier, of the models we analyze.
The h0me team is the one that consumes less electricity than the rest of the pump dehumidifiers.
The HME020031N consumes 780 Watts, which is a little more than the Frigidaire FFAD7033R1, but much less than the 900 Watts of consumption of the Friedrich D70BPA and the 950 Watts Whynter RPD-702WP.
Although the size of your water container is the smallest of all, this should not be an inconvenience. We think that if someone is looking for a pump dehumidifier, this means that the water will be emptied by the hose directly into the drain, so the size of the container is not very important.
To summarize, if you want the lowest power consumption and the most functionalities, our recommendation is the Frigidaire FFAD7033R1. If it is essential that the dehumidifier has a drain pump, we recommend the HME HME020031N.
