Contacted Honeywell today, after sending pictures and purchase documentation, they are sending out a new replacement unit.

Ozark Bob Emmerson Quiet Cool is the only brand listed at a 5 of 5 rating for dependability on Consumer reports. About $300 give or take for various sizes. The rest are all rated 2 or 3 out of five. Bob

Correctly sized central air will both keep yourself and other occupants cool, as well as keeping the humidity low everywhere the a/c ducts reach with good air flow out and return air back.

When ducting is installed, don't forget return air ducts. You want the system to have a continued flow of air into and return air out of - the affected area.

Sure, spend a few $$$$$$$$$$$ now, but then you don't have to worry about dehumidifiers and other similar issues.

Best wishes.

feesh007 I've had a Frigidaire 70pint in my basement for over ten years now. Granted it only works for 6 months of the year but it keeps chooching. Picked up a second one 2 years ago for my shop and it's exhibited no strange behavior.


I believe they might be like freezers and fridges in that you need to let them sit upright for a day or so before turning them on or you risk internal damage.

Not an anomaly, though I wouldn't be surprised if your annual cleaning helps. Much older dehumidifiers appear to have far better longevity on average than what's for sale these days, presumably because of the new ones' cheaply made Chinese compressors. I say bite the bullet and buy one that's expensive but genuinely American-made as it'll ultimately more than pay for itself, but I know a few people that have successfully hunted down old, used dehumidifiers that folks were getting rid of even though they still worked fine. That's obviously the best way to go, but what are the odds a person will find such when they go looking to replace their latest $200 piece of Chinese junk?
