In 1902, the De’Longhi family founded a small manufacturing company in Treviso, Italy. Today, the De’Longhi company produces a wide variety of small kitchen appliances, including coffee and espresso machines, air fryers, convection ovens, and indoor grills. But historically, they’ve been best known for their home comfort products.
De’Longhi produces a wide range of portable home comfort products. These include both heaters and air conditioners as well as portable air quality products such as dehumidifiers and air purifiers. Unlike central HVAC and whole-house air quality products, these portable products only condition the air of a single room at a time.
There are four different types of portable heaters sold by De’Longhi. First, there are small fan and ceramic heaters that provide instant, directional heating, right where you want it. Next, there are convector heaters, which are intended to heat entire medium to large rooms.
De’Longhi recommends their radiant heaters for longer-term heating needs because they’re more efficient and able to keep medium to large rooms at a constant temperature. Finally, their panel heaters act as a sort of electrical fireplace, offering fast, silent heat aimed in one direction.
Likewise, De’Longhi’s portable air conditioners are available at a range of prices, with options to match. For instance, some of the air conditioners can also provide heat as heat pumps. Some also have a dehumidifying-only function, which allows them to function as dehumidifiers when you don’t need cooling.
De’Longhi’s portable air conditioners/heat pumps use R410a refrigerant, which does not harm the ozone layer. They come with remote controls, and in some cases have digital timers so you can easily control how long the unit runs.
As for portable air quality products, De’Longhi offers dehumidifiers that are Energy Star certified, and some of their dehumidifiers are certified as Asthma and Allergy Friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
Their dehumidifiers offer multiple ways of draining the water that they collect from the air. They can simply be emptied manually, or they can use their built-in True Pints Per Day pump system to continuously drain the water through a hose into a sink or other drain in your home.
