The best thing I like about this dehumidifier is that it looks sleek and wonderful. Unlike other dehumidifiers that tend to look clunky and large, this dehumidifier is slim and light. It fits very well into our daughters room and matches her pink and white princess theme very well. Her room kind of sticks out the back of the house, so it tends to be very cold and wet in the winter time. We have carpet, so it was terrible to wake up to a almost wet, cold, carpet. This dehumidifier solve our big problem. We usually turn the unit on before bed time and let it run until the room dries out and turn it off while she sleeps. The unit is fairly silent, so you probably won't have a problem with it on during your sleep. The water collects in a bucket, so you can empty it out when it's full. It also comes with a tubing system that you can connect to your drains. We love this dehumidifier and my daughter sleeps much more warmly in her room now!
