Continue with the design, Ivation IVALDH50PW front water tank can be removed effortlessly thanks to the sliding mechanism and built-in carrying handle.

No guessing is needed as you can peek through the transparent water level indicator to check the collected water level.

Dehumidification Technology

No more dealing with the constant threat of airborne mold and mildew. Ivation effectively drains up to 50 pints of moisture per day according to the 2012 United States Department of Energy (DOE) or 35 pints of moisture with the latest 2019 DOE standard. At turbo speed, it can cover up to 3,000 square feet of room space. Ideal for master bedroom, living room, laundry room, basement, dry bathroom, garage, kitchen, and office.

Ivation 35-Pint (50-Pint 2012 DOE) dehumidifier is capable of decreasing relative humidity levels in a damp environment. Through refrigeration technology, damp air is drawn into the air inlet and will have to go through the permanent air filter. The filter will trap large particles like dust, hair, lint, and pet dander leaving only clean air into the coils. The air will be condensed via the evaporator coils and moisture will be extracted out as water droplets. The droplets will drip down to a bucket or pump straight to a floor drain if continuous drainage mode is selected. The dehumidification will stop when the set humidity goal is reached.
