Comment:
To expound on my con, I found that you really have to point the remote to it so it can pick up the reading and my distance was even less than what it says it can reach to. But it works! <br /> I absolutely love this machine and because it doesn't blow out hot hot hot air like my LG does, I can comfortably place this anywhere and it doesn't defeat the a/c on because the LG blows out such hot air that my a/c would work harder to cool down. I can now keep it in the bathroom in the cubby hole which is above 8 from the machine, but that doesn't really matter anymore. It is so quiet and the best thing is how comfortable the environment is. You can feel the comfort. I love this machine!

Very precise humidity control
12/25/2013
Pros
Precise Humidity Control
Pump works well
Cons
Best Uses
Basement area
Comment:
The unit controls humidity very precisely. This precision is achieved by having the fan run continuously. So if noise is an issue, you may find this unity unacceptable. However the noise level is reasonable. I am using it in a family room where we watch TV and have found it to be acceptable.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
