Our Review:

Live in a humid area or have a good amount of space? By choosing a 70 pint dehumidifier over the more common 50 pints, you have more flexibility on fan speeds and can use in a larger space. A larger dehumidifier can be set on low to do the work a smaller one can do, only quieter. A large dehumidifier is also more energy efficient than a small one. The Frigidaire 70 Pint-FAD704DUD is designed for someone who wants a dehumidifier they can set up and trust to take care of itself with little routine maintenance or cleaning. It can even be set to drain its own water for your own personal usage. Everything you will ever need to change or clean is located on the front of bottom for ease of access, so you will never have worry about crouching behind it feeling for the canister or filters. This Frigidaire product is tough on humidity and will keep your air fresh and allergen-free.


The Frigidaire 70 Pint Capacity Dehumidifier is a product which is designed to remove moisture from the air in your home. The medium sized unit features electronic controls and multiple fan speeds. It is also able to be operated at low temperatures, and may be operated continuously if the dehumidifier is placed near an appropriate drainage unit. This dehumidifier works by using a fan to collect humid air, which is run across a coil that dehumidifies it. The function of the coil is to collect the moisture in the air in the form of condensation. The air is then redistributed into the room, warmed and without moisture. When the dehumidifier collects moisture, it is distributed into a reservoir located on the front of the unit.

This dehumidifier is able to collect moisture up to 70 pints during each day it is in use. In addition to that, the electronic controls on the unit allow you to decide precisely how humid you would like the air in the room to be by percentage rate. The appliance features a mesh filter which is also anti-microbial to prevent the buildup of unwanted microbes caused by excessive moisture. This filter is capable of negating odors in a room, taking bacteria out of the air and collecting other unwanted particles that might be in the air inside your home. The filter is able to be cleaned and reused, so there is no need to continuously purchase filters. The filter is placed at the bottom of the unit and requires cleaning approximately every two weeks or 250 hours. To clean the filter, you must only displace the bucket, take the filter out by pulling downward, and wash it in sanitary water. The filter must be left to dry. When it is replaced, one must only press the FILTER button for the unit to begin functioning as normal again.

This dehumidifier has a number of exciting features. Besides being AHAM certified and Energy Star compliant, it can drastically improve the scent within your home and allow you to breathe more easily thanks to the anti-microbial filter. Mold and mildew are two of the most common allergens, and they are often present due to humid air. The dehumidifier may be set to drain on its own using the continuous pump option, which requires only an inside drain area and a garden hose. The hose can be connected to the back of the appliance and placed toward or into the drain. When you turn it on, it will begin draining itself automatically. If continuous drainage is not an option for you, the splash guard feature of the front loaded bucket will allow you to access, empty and clean the bucket with ease. It also has a useful carrying handle. Finally, this dehumidifying unit has the bonus feature of automatically shutting off and alerting you if your moisture tank has been filled to capacity. Thanks to this feature, no water will be spilled inadvertently.

This Frigidaire dehumidifier is not only a bargain but also could be the difference between comfortable air in your home and another season full of mold, mildew, moisture, bad scents and allergies. If you have issues with overly humid air in the home, this appliance is a purchase to consider.
