Winix Dehumidifier
Reviews and Ratings



Winix Dehumidifiers are much less well known than brands from US companies such as Frigidaire and Danby. They are also less widely used than other models from non US companies such as Haier and LG. This apparent lack of popularity is probably due to the higher prices generally charged for Winix models.


In reviews of the Winix brand, however, we find that customer satisfaction is high and user experiences bear out claims that Winix models show a higher overall build quality than some of their competitors.They are also compact and stylish, fitting well into today's modern homes.

Winix dehumidifiers have most of the features users have come to expect in such appliance including electronic controls, digital display, an excellent on-off timer and three fan speeds. Unlike some other brands Winix models have a fan that does not run continuously but only when the appliance is dehumidifying

Earlier Winix models incorporated an integral condensate pump which was useful for users who did not have a convenient floor level drain into which to allow the condensate to drain continuously via a simple gravity feed. This feature has been deleted from the current two model range. It is only possible to speculate on the reasons for this change but it is noticeable that The current range is now more competitively priced than and this may have been achieved by saving the cost iof installing the pump.


We have a high regard for Winix Dehumidifiers and recommend them confidently to our visitors. The next section tells you a little more about the company behind them.
