  • 9-GALLON LARGE DEHUMIDIFIER: If your standard unit of measure is ice cream, our dehumidifier removes up to 70 pints from the air per day. But we measure in gallons (because we're talking about water) to make the capacity easier to comprehend. This moisture-sucking beast is fit for any basement, cellar or large room, and it's Energy Star certified, so it quickly and effectively absorbs moisture without racking up your energy bill.
  • DESIGNED FOR THE MODERN HOME: That most dehumidifiers are clunky eyesores is news to nobody. We designed with the modern consumer in mind: a sleek, clean look our customers love, convenient built-in wheels and handles, and a quiet fan that won't drown out your current binge-watching obsession.
  • SUPER EASY TO USE: Dehumidifiers don't need to be complicated, so ours isn't. Adjust to your ideal moisture setting, then let it run its continuous 24-hour cycle until the tank is full, at which point it will automatically shut-off. Don't got time for that? There's also a drain hose outlet for continuous draining. The hose is not included; we recommend a ⅝" diameter garden hose with a female threaded end, and optionally Teflon tape for extra security.
  • ELIMINATES MOISTNESS, ODOR & OTHER THINGS YOU HATE: Moist is a bad word. Our portable humidifier reduces odors and allergens from humid air through its built-in pump compressor. It also features a turbo mode that increases fan speed from normal to high for maximum moisture removal and odor reduction.
  • IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW - Dehumidifiers emit heat when in use (that's how they absorb the moisture). This product won't work in the same room as an evap cooler, and is intended for spaces between 2500 and 4000 SQ FT. It measures 15.4 x 11 x 24.3 inches, has a 1.6 gallon (6 liter) water tank capacity, and removes up to 9 gallons (70 pints in beer measurements) of moisture from the air per day.

Overview of Features

Powerful Operation – This 9-gallon large dehumidifier removes as much as 72 pints of moisture from the air daily. With its incredible suction power, the Portable Dehumidifier by hOmeLabs is hard to beat for basements, cellars, and a host of other large spaces. Even though this monster machine has a lot of power, it is Energy Star certified. That means it eliminates excess moisture, odors, and allergens without having much effect on your energy bill.

Modern Design – Instead of having an unsightly design, this dehumidifier is sleek. As a result, it fits in beautifully with any modern décor. With built-in handles and wheels, most people can move it easily, and thanks to an extremely quiet fan, it does not overpower conversations or sound coming from the television or stereo system.

Ease of Use – A significant advantage of using the Portable Dehumidifier by hOmeLabs compared to other units is its streamlined design for easy use. Simply select the preferred moisture setting and then let the unit run a continuous 24-hour cycle. Once the tank fills, the dehumidifier shuts off automatically for optimum safety. With a drain hose outlet, the unit continuously drains. However, this dehumidifier does not come with a drain hose. The best option is a 5/8-inch hose that has a female threaded end. To prevent any leakages, the manufacturer suggests using Teflon tape.

Excess Moisture – For a problem with excess moisture, which wreaks havoc on wood furniture and furnishings, this dehumidifier comes highly recommended. Thanks to its built-in pump compressor, it also takes care of unwanted odors and allergens found in humid air. By switching the normal fan speed to turbo mode, the dehumidifier increases the volume of moisture removed and odors reduced.

Important Factors – When operating the Portable Dehumidifier by hOmeLabs, there are a few essential factors to consider. First, dehumidifiers absorb moisture by emitting heat. For that reason, you cannot use this product when operating an evaporator cooler in the same room. Second, this unit works incredibly well for large spaces of between 2,500 and 4,000 square feet. Third, the 1.6-gallon tank can remove as much as 9 gallons or 72 pints of moisture daily.

How to Use

Using the Portable Dehumidifier by hOmeLabs is a breeze. Just turn the power switch on and allow it to run a continuous 24-hour cycle. For optimal safety, the unit shuts off automatically once the tank fills. In rooms with severe moisture, odors, or allergens, or when you want faster results, you can choose the turbo mode over the normal fan speed. Once the tank fills completely, remove it, dump it, and replace it for the next use.
