    Danby DDR60A3GP Dehumidifier

    This model is no longer available or might have limited distribution.

    DDR60A3GP
    Though it's a top performer, this model's fan runs continuously until its internal bucket is full, adding to its noise and about a 50 to 60 watt ncrease in energy consumption when set on high speed.

    Test Results

    Water removal

    Water removal

    Water removal measures pints per day removed under 65º F and 60 percent relative humidity (the new 2019 DOE standard). Models closest to claimed removal scored higher.

     /  5
    Energy efficiency

    Energy efficiency

    Energy efficiency measures kWh needed to remove a pint of water from the air; the fewer the kilowatts, the higher the score.

     /  5
    Noise

    Noise

    Noise denotes loudness at the highest setting, measured in decibels. We also measured ability to run on low voltage and restart after a simulated blackout; models that didn't automatically restart are footnoted.

    Humidistat accuracy

    Humidistat accuracy

    Humidistat accuracy is how closely humidistats came to keeping the humidity levels we set for them in our test chamber.

    Convenience

    Convenience

    A measure of how often you would need to empty the tank in order to reach the claimed pts/day.

    Cool room performance

    Cool room performance

    Cool room performance measures pints of water removed and watts needed to remove this water when the dehumidifier is used in a room that is 50 degrees F and 60% relative humidity.
