The one you selected “homelabs” has a lot more reviews and is almost 5 stars. It’s only 10$’s more for the homelabs. I can’t speak to it really as I don’t own that model, but the great thing is you can buy both and use amazon returns free 30 day return. Run them for a week side by side and see what happens. I use this in a spare bedroom and it does the job. Over all temp of the bedroom is not really affected. When you’re next to the dehumidifier you will feel the heat and only when in front of the heat exchange. It takes about 5 minutes before you notice the heat coming out of the unit and can’t feel the heat at all about 16-24 inches away. My only con is the inability to set a temp and the unit only engage at 50% 60% ect. This thing will just keep sucking until it fills 30 pints (hose is not hooked up) and shuts off.
Here is a little test at roughly 12 inches directly in the path of the heat
With the unit off
Experiment done in a much bigger area than 3x3. Pointing the heat exchange away from your grow the temps won’t rise as much and as quickly “obviously”, but the heat catches up and expands. In the 15 minutes tested above I moved the meter about 12 feet away at the end (same room - unit still on) and temps were down 4 degrees cooler and the RH was also slightly higher 12 feet away 61ish
Does the homelab model have adjustable settings such as set to 50%, 60%?
This Dehumidifier has adjustable settings, but mixed reviews
