Ivation 30 Pint Dehumidifier Review

Ivation 30 Pint Dehumidifier

Compact but powerful is one way to describe the Ivation 30 pint dehumidifier. It weighs just 30-pounds which means it can be moved easily from room to room and is designed to fit into any décor.

The smooth-rolling caster wheels are durable and make this product a portable humidity controlling device, making it easy to transport from room to room.

There are two different fan settings that will remove up to 30-pints of moisture per day from the air. This unit is powerful enough to regulate humidity in an area of up to 2,000 square feet.

The Ivation dehumidifier uses an innovative filtration and evaporation system. It works to prevent mold and mildew. This protects the health of your family, your home, and your possessions from various issues.

With proper humidity levels, your home will not suffer from structural damage caused by high humidity. It also protects you and your family from respiratory triggers from allergens.

The unit comes complete with a 1.3-gallon reservoir that collects excess moisture in the form of water. Once it fills the dehumidifier shuts off automatically to allow you to remove and empty the tank.

The built-in level indicator gives you an instant reading at a glance notifying you of when the reservoir requires attention. Or you can add an optional hose for continuous draining.

Featuring an Ivation design, this 30 pt dehumidifier has a simple to use and understand LCD interface, allowing easy control of moisture levels.

Once you set your desired levels, adjust the speed of the fan and set the 24-hour program timer, the unit will take care of the rest. Filter and reservoir alerts ensure worry-free operation.

This small dehumidifier is also eco-friendly. The automatic shut-off system, as well as the built-in timer, saves energy and saves you money. Plus, the filter can be cleaned which makes it reusable.

Other Features of the Ivation 30 Pint Dehumidifier

The Ivation 30 pint dehumidifier is a simple and easy to use unit that is a great option to prevent mold and mildew.

This 30 pint dehumidifier comes with an extra-long 6-foot, three-prong power cord. This makes it easy to place wherever it is needed and so that you do not require an extension cord for operation.

The on/off switch is separate from the other settings which means that the humidistat does not need to be adjusted in order to start this 30-pint dehumidifier. This means that you can leave it on your preferred settings all the time. Plus, all other controls are easy to see and operate.

There is a built-in digital humidistat that provides readings on the LCD screen of the current humidity level. There is also a built-in thermometer offering current temperature readings.

The 1.3-gallon tank has a transparent level indicator and is constructed with a comfortable handle. This makes removal, emptying, and replacement easy and safe.

When the water reservoir is full, a water level sensor triggers which automatically shuts the dehumidifier off. This prevents overflows which could damage the unit or your property.

Should there be a power outage, this 30-pint dehumidifier has Smart Technology. This means that it will automatically restart without the need for you to reload settings as they will be retained.

This Ivation portable home dehumidifier has a clean filter alert. When this goes off all you have to do is remove, rinse and reuse. This reduces the cost as well as the need for additional filters.

There’s an auto-defrost function. This prevents the evaporator coils from damage and also saves energy. There is no doubt that this is one well designed small, but powerful dehumidifier.

What Others Have To Say About The Ivation 30 Pt Dehumidifier…

There are a few pros and cons in relation to this 30 pint dehumidifier. They are as follows:


Very effective in removing moisture from the air in large areas over 1,500 square feet.
Runs very quiet when set on the lowest fan setting.
Auto shut off function is handy when the water tank is full.
Auto-restart following a power outage is a handy built-in feature.
An extra-long power cord is a major convenience.


Do not remove the water bucket before the full indicator as water drainage does not stop with the bucket removed.
The built-in humidistat is not quite as accurate as using an actual hygrometer in the room the humidifier is in.
Has hose hook-up option for continuous drainage but the hose is not included.

Overall, this is a great small dehumidifier. We found it to do an excellent job of removing moisture from the air in smaller applications. We do recommend using a larger unit, such as a 50-pint or 70-pint dehumidifier for large areas though. So make sure that you get the best dehumidifier for the size of the room you need to be covered.

      Hi Diane
      Thanks for your comment and sorry to hear that you have had issues.
      In our experience, we have found that Ivation dehumidifiers are generally very reliable. If you are having issues and have checked the obvious things, then if it’s still under warranty, then it would probably be best to reach out to the manufacturer’s customer helpline, or to the outlet that sold it to you. If it is not under warranty, you may be able to get someone such as an electrician or refrigeration technician to look at it… hopefully, it is something relatively easy and inexpensive to fix.
      Let us know how you go.
