Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with that product I bought the product about a month ago. So far, I am very satisfy with this deshumidifier. It is quit (runs smoothly), efficient and well designed. To make it better (almost perfect), it could display the room tempperature.

what is the room area rating (sqft)?

Asked by: Datlanta
To determine the proper size of the dehumidifier to use, you will need to measure the square footage of the room you need to dehumidify and its humidity level. To determine how humid the room is, you can use a hygrometer or just use your best judgment. There are Dehumidifying Size Charts that you can find online that you can then use to find the pint capacity that is most appropriate for your space. As indicated in the title description, the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG PuriCare™ 55 Pint Dehumidifier, Model # UD551GKG3 is a 55-pint unit which is adequate for a slightly damp space of 700 square feet, or for a moderately damp space. IF you don't have a hygrometer and you need to use your best judgment, you can use the following method: If your space is very damp or wet, this unit will be appropriate for a space of 500 square feet. If your room is extremely wet and contains standing water or puddles of water, the humidity will be between 90 and 100 percent and is considered "extremely wet." If the room smells and feels wet and contains visible mold, mildew, leaks, and water stains, the humidity level will be between 80 and 90 percent and is classified as "wet." If your room feels very damp and you can clearly smell mold and mildew, the humidity levels will be between 70 and 80 percent and is known as "very damp." You may or may not see visible water stains on walls and on the floor. If the room only smells musty in damp or humid weather, the relative humidity will be between 60 and 70 percent and is considered "moderately damp." If your humidity level is extremely wet or between 90 and 100 percent, your ACH will have a value of "6." If your humidity level is considered "wet" or between 80 and 90 percent, your ACH will be a value of "5." When your humidity in the room is considered to be "very damp" and falls between 70 and 80 percent, your ACH will have the value of "4." Moderately damp humidity levels that fall between 60 and 70 percent will have an ACH value of "3." Measure the length, width, and height of your room to determine its volume in cubic feet then multiply that by the ACH and divide the result by 60 for the amount of airflow you need. For moderately damp conditions, you will need a dehumidifier that can extract 10 pints (4.73 liters) of water within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). For every additional 500 square feet (46.45 square meters), add 4 pints (1.89 liters). For very damp conditions, buy a dehumidifier that can extract 12 pints (5.67 liters) of water within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). For every extra 500 square feet (46.45 square meters), add 5 pints (2.36 liters). For wet conditions, choose a dehumidifier that can collect 14 pints (6.62 liters) of water within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). Add 6 pints (2.83 liters) for every additional 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). For extremely wet humidity conditions, buy a dehumidifier that extracts 16 pints (7.57 liters) of water from the air within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). Add 7 pints (3.31 liters) for every extra 500 square feet (46.45 square meters)...^IFV
