Reviews have identified the best feature of the Soleus Air CFM-40 E to be its quietness. Compared to other models which may extract moisture more quickly, the Soleus Air CFM-40 E is relatively much quieter and running at 2.9 amps it is still able to work efficiently.
Measuring at 24 x 18.5 x 13 inches, the Soleus Air CFM-40 E has manual and soft touch control, washable air filter, and movable louvers on top to direct the air at your preferred angle. The humidistat has four settings, i.e. continuous dehumidification, 50%, 60% and 70%. The processor will turn off when humidity level is reached, but the fan will continue to run (this feature is celebrated by one review but complained of in another). The three fan settings available are Medium, High and Quiet.
