Reviews of the Best-Rated Soleus Air Dehumidifiers

1. Soleus #TDA30 Air Dehumidifier

Soleus #TDA30 Air Dehumidifier Review

When you need to lower your humidity levels in your home, this model offers you pre-programmed settings. These settings are designed to work in individual rooms, like your sleeping space (bedroom), kitchen and basement.

Then, if you do not like emptying water buckets, you can attach your standard garden hose and choose the continuous drain function. Or if you prefer using the water bucket, its 8.5-liter capacity should keep emptying chores to a minimum. When the bucket is full the automatic shut-off feature kicks in and sounds an alarm to notify you.

This dehumidifier has caster wheels making it portable. You can easily move this unit from room to room without any hassle.

Its digital humidistat control panel is not hard to use, and it will display your level settings as well as the current humidity levels in the room. Also, you can manually operate the digital controls to set the levels where you want them to be. The unit has 3 fan speeds as well.

The dehumidifier measures approx. 10 by 13 by 20 inches in size.

  • Continuous drain feature
  • Pre-programmed settings
  • Compact size

Soleus #TDA45E Energy Star Rated Air Dehumidifier Review

This 10 by 13 by 20-inch unit has the same features the other two units in this review have. The only difference is its moisture removal and water bucket capacity. Along with removing 45 pints of excess moisture per day, the bucket holds almost 9 liters of water.

You can select the pre-programmed settings or manually adjust the humidity levels to match your preferences. The digital control panel is easy to use and displays both the humidity level setting mark and the current humidity level in the room.

Also, you get the same choice in how you want the dehumidifier to drain moisture. You can use the bucket or opt for the continuous drain mode. You just have to supply the garden hose. When the bucket is full, the unit shuts off automatically, lights its indicator light and sounds an alarm.

You can use this unit anywhere in your home.

What We Liked

  • Digital humidity levels readout
  • Automatic shutoff & indicator light, alarm
  • Continuous drain feature
  • Home mode functions

What We Didn't Like

  • Only low speed is quiet
  • Some vibration issues
  • No handle on the water bucket

Soleus #TDA70E Energy Star Rated Air Dehumidifier Review

This unit is a little larger. It measures roughly 15 by 11 by 25 inches in size and can handle removing up to 70 pints of moisture per day. Also, it comes with a ‘my home mode’ feature that lets you set the dehumidifier in specific rooms, like your kitchen, bedroom or basement.

The washable and removable filter keeps maintenance costs down. Then, you can choose between continuous drain mode or fill the water bucket. The bucket will hold up to almost 17 liters of excess moisture before needing to be emptied.

The full bucket light indicator will turn on when the automatic shut-off kicks in. The unit will also sound a small alarm when the bucket needs to be emptied again. Its automatic defrost feature and quiet motor make this an easy unit to have in your home.

Easy to use controls and a reusable filter keep operation costs low.

What We Liked

  • High capacity unit
  • Full bucket alarm and light indicator
  • Auto defrost & auto shut-off
  • Continuous drain feature
  • Quiet motor

What We Didn't Like

Things To Consider When Buying A Soleus Air Dehumidifier

Every home is not the same. That is one of the things you need to consider when looking to purchase a Soleus dehumidifier. There is not a one size fits all dehumidifier on the market. Shopping for a dehumidifier takes a little research, you need to look for special features and it takes time.

After reading our Soleus dehumidifier reviews, for a summary, here are a few more points you should consider when looking to buy a Soleus dehumidifier:

  • The reason you are buying a dehumidifier - besides protecting family allergy sufferers from germs and bacteria you need to protect your home and wood furniture. Too much humidity can damage the woodwork, flooring and other wood parts of your house
  • Room size - not all dehumidifiers are rated to cover the same square footage. You need a dehumidifier that will cover your largest room with ease. Don't go for small units that can remove only 20 to 30 pints of moisture from the air per day.
  • Draining options - is it only by water bucket or is there a continuous drain feature included
  • Special features - what options come with the dehumidifier and do you really need them all. Is the humidity control panel easy to use and does it have digital display
  • Energy efficiency - an Energy Star certificate is very important when it comes to choosing a good dehumidifier
  • Indoor temperature and humidity levels - you need to make sure the dehumidifier will work in all room conditions. These two items do affect the dehumidifier’s performance.
