Dehumidifiers

I'm looking at getting a dehumidifier for the Escape. I have been using some Damp Rid chemical things but I think it's tine for a more permanent solution. We get a lot of rain this time if year. Has anyone tried one of these EDV-1100 or 1200 models? They use a peltier cooling block. You need 110v, at least for the 1100, which holds only 2 cups of water

Amazon.com: Eva Dry EDV-1100 Thermo Electric Peltier Dehumidifier, 16 Oz Removable Water Tank, Effectiveness 1,100 Cubic Feet: Kitchen & Dining

Regards,

Matt

Nope, I use a competely passive system: Dri-Z-Air. I get the crystals on sale at 99cents a bag, go through 2-3 bags a year.

Matt, Thanks for the info. I didn't know they made small units. Here's what I found out about big units. If they have the touch pad switches, if there is a power outage then the unit turns off and you have to go and turn it back on yourself after the power comes back on. On the units that have a regular switch, they just come back on their self.

I,m going to order the Eva Dry EDV-1100 and modify it with a hose that goes through the floor so it will self drain.

Any one tried using a MaxxdryMD 100? They do not need power to use - just to recharge the crystals so you do not need to change the crystals. It costs about $20 at Fred Meyer. It looks intreasting but would luv to know if it works before buying. :-)

Another vote for simple and inexpensive. Living in the Oregon Wet side I have used the Dry-Z_Air canisters and crystals for years. Just remember to empty the canister and add more crystals every couple of months.

This sounds interesting. H2Out Dryers use a desiccant developed by NASA, A renewable element
