Ditto on drain connection - really, really makes a difference, ours runs from May through Nov depending on temps. Once we start heating it is stored.I run one all summer and it works well . Make sure you get the one with a hose attachment so you can run it into a drain. Mine also sets to 50%.
Delonghi dehumidifiers are pretty good (made in Italy). Not cheap, but good. I run one year round and use to get no more than two years out of several other brands. Over the past 20 years I have had 2 Delonghis. Several of my friends have bought them on my recommendation, and all have had good luck with them.That may be. One did come from Lowe's.
The two I had were made in China and lasted less time than the virus. :smile_big:Delonghi dehumidifiers are pretty good (made in Italy). Not cheap, but good.
I would find it hard to believe that would be a problem. Just curious though, why you would want to do that? The point is to get the place at a specific humidity level by setting the level on the unit so if you are Only running it now and then you are wasting your timeI did look at the Delonghi. I want to call the company and see if there would be an issue if I put it on a timer to run intermittently each day.
