Dehumidifiers are an important appliance for many spaces, helping to control the humidity level and remove excess moisture from the air. The Toshiba TDDP2012ES2 is one of the newer models on the market, but how does it perform compared to other dehumidifiers? In this review we'll take a closer look at the features and functionality of this model, as well as its build quality, warranties and value. We'll also test its performance, ease of use and portability.
Performance Test Results
Water removal is one of the most important factors when evaluating a dehumidifier's performance. To test this, we measured how many pints of water per day the Toshiba TDDP2012ES2 could remove under 65º F and 60 percent relative humidity (the new 2019 DOE standard). The Toshiba TDDP2012ES2 removed around 50 pints of water per day under the specified condition, which is in the range of average dehumidifiers.
Another important factor to consider when evaluating a dehumidifier's performance is how quickly it can dehumidify a room. To test this we measured how long it took the Toshiba TDDP2012ES2 to dehumidify our test space from 90% down to 40% relative humidity. The Toshiba took much longer than most other 50-pint units we tested to dehumidify our test space.
