Soleus Air CFM-40 E 40-Pint Dehumidifier with Humidistat

  • Soleus Air CFM-40 E 40-Pint Dehumidifier with Humidistat
  • Model number: Soleus CFM 40
  • Removable reservoir tank with the 40 pint dehumidifier and an optional continuous drainage port
  • An alarm to let you know when the bucket is full and needs emptying
  • Overflow is prevented with the automatic shut off function
  • Air filter is washable
  • Other functions include automatic defrost, whisper quiet operation, and an adjustable humidistat
  • Unit is lightweight and can be moved around with the built in wheels or you can use the carrying handle for easy portability
  • Humidifier measures 21.5" x 15" x 10 2/7"
  • One year warranty

    Soleus CFM 40 PROS:

  • Removes moisture from the air very quickly
  • Has a setting for quiet operation which works well
  • Looks good enough to put in your living room
  • Only uses 306 watts so it runs cooler than larger models and also saves you on the electric bill
  • Lighter than most other 40 pint units
  • Turns off when bucket is full and runs quiet even when not in the quiet mode
  • Doesn't ice up

    Soleus CFM 40 CONS:

  • Castor's are small making it difficult to move by rolling
  • The bucket for catching the water is too small and needs emptying often
  • The bucket could use handles to help with picking it up and moving it to empty

  • Bucket needs a cover so water doesn't splash when moving the unit or when you are emptying the bucket
  • After the warranty expires Soleus doesn't want to help you if your unit quits or needs work
  • No threads for connecting a hose to the water output
  • Unit lasts a little over a year on average, probably made as a disposable unit
  • Unit seems to run 24/7 no matter the setting


    This dehumidifier is really quiet, even when not in the quiet mode. Unit is lightweight and uses less electricity than other 40 pint units which will reduce your electric bill. Still, it removes the moisture quickly. The water bucket could use a cover as it spills and splashes when you move the unit or go to empty the bucket. The biggest drawback seems to be that it only lasts a little over a year, and the warranty lasts a year. Almost seems like Soleus made this to quit and be used as a disposable unit.
