Hi! I live in the beautiful state of Vermont in a lovely log home. Here in Vermont we have a season that most states don't have. It is called MUD season. With all of the spring rain and winter snowmelt, we have mud everywhere in the spring. We have many dirt roads and sinking is common. Anyway, because of this problem, we have always had a wet carpet in the basement bathroom each year. I had to buy a new dehumidifier this year as the old one broke. I found a great one. The LG model LD25EL. Yes, it was a little more then I had planned to spend, but I hadn't looked at new ones or prices in a long time. Anyway..it is so quiet while running, spot dries, and can be set by using the timer. This model is nice to look at and easy to empty. There is a large, easy to read LED screen that tells you when you should empty the holding container. I am very happy and my rug dried quickly. After all of the years that I was using my old dehumidifier, I am so happy to finally have this ne LG model. I would suggest it to anyone who asks.
