Danby DDR095BDPWDB Review.
The Danby 95 pint is a high-performance, Energy Star rated dehumidifier.
Lots of reasons to like this model, but the Smart Dehumidify feature what sets it apart.
Smart dehumidify function: dehumidifier will automatically control the room humidity by factoring in ambient room temp. It’s a set-it-and-forget-it feature!
As 11.875 gallon dehumidifier (daily), it’s ideal for high-humidity areas.
Reading buyer reviews, many users live below sea level (in valleys), near lakes, or need a powerful dehumidifier for large basement.
Danby dehumidifier is perfect for large rooms, especially basements. It comes w/ large water tank and hose for direct-drain function.
If you need a smaller unit, Danby offers 6 sizes:
|Danby Dehumidifier||Daily Capacity||Room Size|
|DDR030BDWDB||30 pint (14 liters)||1,500 sq. ft.|
|DDR045BDWDB||45 pint (21 liters)||2,250 sq. ft.|
|DDR050BGWDB||50 pint (24 liters)||2,500 sq. ft.|
|DDR060BDWDB||60 pint (28 liters)||4,000 sq. ft.|
|DDR070BDWDB||70 pint (33 liters)||4,500 sq. ft.|
|DDR095BDPWDB||95 pint (45 liters)||6,000 sq. ft.|
All units have the same features — only different area capacity and water tanks.
For my review I’ll focus on the Danby 95 pint dehumidifier (DDR095BBWDB).

Allowing excess moisture to build in your home can cause a lot of damage.
