The Eva-Dry Electric Petite is a small, compact dehumidifier that uses the Peltier Technology, meaning it has no compressor which invariably makes it lighter and quieter. The unit is ideal for bathrooms, closets or small sized rooms that have a humidity problem and help preserve clothes and shoes that are often damaged by molds and mildews.
This small dehumidifier is often advertised as “almost silent”. It does, however have a fan and some users have commented on the fan noise that many find intrusive. The Eva-Dry has a low electricity consumption but in absolute terms it is much less energy efficient than medium or large units. It should be mentioned that when the Eva-Dry Electric Petite Dehumidifier is used in a closet it will need a permanent electricity supply so a power cable will have to be run from the closet to a power socket, which means having to leave the closet door slightly open, therefore making it harder for the unit to dehumidify more efficiently.
The Eva-Dry comes with a switch that automatically turns the unit off once the water container is full and needs to be emptied. This units container can hold approximately 16 oz. of water, making it easy to remove and empty in a sink or outside. Because of its small size, care must be taken when removing the water bucket to avoid spillage.
