I bought this because the humidity in one of my bedrooms gets pretty bad and the walls of this room sweats, so I figure this would be a nice dehumidifier. I was very impressed! within the first 72 hours of having it set up it collected about an inch of water and the room felt so much better and fresher and I didn’t have any more wall sweat! I don’t run it everyday anymore I run it every few days and it does that job! For the price, It was a must! Would definitely buy again!
