Cost Comparison

 

Should you buy two standard appliance-grade dehumidfiers or one high-capacity dehumidifier to handle extremely wet conditions?

Two Dehumidifiers   Approximate Purchase Price   Estimated Monthly Operating Cost
One 40-pint Unit   $350   $36
One 25-pint Unit   $250   $23
    TOTAL   $600               $59
         
High-Capacity Dehumidifier   Approximate Purchase Price   Estimated Monthly Operating Cost
One 100-pint Unit*   $1150   $20
* removing 65 pints in a 24-hour period


In this example, you save $39 per month in operating costs by purchasing the high-capacity unit. After 11 months of operation, the electricity savings will pay for the higher purchase price of the high-capacity unit. From then on, you save money for each month of operation.

Comparison is based on 7.5 cents kWh, 24-hour operation, and 80°F 60% relative humidity.
