Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Powerful and Love the pump

2/18/2018

It helped my floors stop buckling from too much moisture. The auto pump is so great and is a must. I was so sick of always emptying the water and this makes it automatic Its one less thing I have to do everyday and I love it.

Bought this because it had the pump. Have not used it yet but it does what it is supposed to do. Nice I like the real time humidity level. would have gave it 5 start but have only had it for 3 day. Supposed to plug it into a dedicated circuit but it is doing fine on a shared one.

Easy Set Up

1/21/2018

I purchased this product and from the start it was an easy set up. Took no time to start feeling a difference in the house. Love the fact you can either use the hose that was included for draining. But also having the option to use the bucket or using another form of drain if you have a sink near by or a floor drain. This product I would recommend to everyone.

Misleading description

1/15/2018

The unit works fine. Does what it is designed to do. However the description I read before purchasing iindicated that the unit would turn on the pump automatically to empty the bucket. That was one of the features that sold us on this unit. It needs to pump over and into the tub so gravity isnt an option. And my elderly mother is not able to keep an eye on the unit and empty it as needed. Not sure if we will keep it.

1/14/2018

I bought this recently. I purchased this product on comparing with other similar products.It works good but the length of the hose to automatically drain is too short for me I had to go back to store to purchase another similar longer hose with hookup. Otherwise it is a good one as it is.

Soaks up a lot of water

1/13/2018

This unit fills and empties itself about twice a day which adds up to quite a lot of water. The pump is definitely a must and worth the extra price. I doubt itll keep up with 1800 square feet of basement in the summer so I may have to get another one. Overall its a solid unit and the fan noise is tolerable.

Works great built in pump makes it hassle-free

1/2/2018

We bought this dehumidifier because of a huge moisture problem we have in our finished basement. Humidity immediately dropped from 70-80 to the 45 we set the dehumidifier to. Prior to connecting the pump drain hose the bucket was filling up three times a day - not having to dump a heavy bucket constantly made it well worth the small price difference between this model and the next one down that had no pump

So Far So Good

12/18/2017

I bought this to replace a dehumidifier that had been recalled not a GE dehumidifier and this one seems to work much better the my last one with keeping the humidity down in my basement. The basement right now does not have that mildewy odor. I will say right now in the winter months it is never as bad as in the summer months. I will need to wait until the hot weather returns to see if it performs as well as I need it to.

Works great

12/9/2017

Bought this to dehumidify my basement which is probably around 900 ft2. Should have done it a long time ago. Works great. Eliminated the musty odor in my basement. However it probably added $10 - 15 per month to my electric bill. Thats worth it for me. I keep it set at 50 RH which works fine. It cycles on and off as needed. Sometimes the fan runs without the dehumidifier to check the room humidity I suppose. Thats good for me to so that some air is circulated several times a day. I use the pump feature to which means no attention required... at all.

Properly addressed the problem.

12/7/2017

We got 2 inches of water in the basement after power outage/idle sump pumps. After water removal installed dehumidifier to address dampness and air quality. Complete closed all doors and windows ran and full tilt for 2 days - basement never smelled better or felt drier. Built-in pump for collection tank is great. Purges right back into sump pit when it fills up so its truly a set-it-and-forget-it unit. Highly recommend.
