Upon starting the machine, the fan pulls the humid air across the dehumidifying coils which condenses the water in the humid air. The result is that, warm dry air gets through the side louvers into the room while the condensed water collects in a bucket located in the front of the humidifier.

* Running the dehumidifier constantly proves to be costly.
* Some have been associated with dehumidifying on the floor instead of the bucket.
* Some user claim that they are not durable. The dehumidifiers are associated with failure with the 5thyear of usage.
* Most manufactures are unable to deal with the accumulated residue which is as a result of constancy usage. This residue eventually blocks the drain holes and consequently causes the device to leak.
