Features Of The 70-Pint Dehumidifier By Frigidaire
How Much Moisture Will This Remove In 24 Hours
When you are using this unit you will find that it is going to remove right about 70 pints in a24 hour time frame. While this may not seem like it would be a lot it is almost 9 gallons of moisture that will be removed from your home each day. So this is actually quite a bit of water and to put it in terms of weigth since so many people like to think about weight it would be around 72 pounds.
Is The Unit Easy To Move Around
This is the best part about this unit and it is very easy to move around! It has integrated handles on the side, with caster wheels. In addition to the side handles, the company realized this could be difficult for some people to move around and they have a handle at the top of the unit as well. All of these different handle options make this very easy for you to move around the home or office.
What Do I Really Like With This Unit
I really enjoy the fact this unit has so many different handles to move it with. This makes it quite a bit easier for me to grab a hold of it and get it moved from one area to the other area. At the same time, it also has the handles that are towards the top of the unit which means it will not tip over as easily on me spilling out water if I am moving it.
The speed which this unit removes the water is something else that is nice. The unit will move 70 pints of water in a day, which may not seem like a lot, but when you figure it up into gallons you will be shocked at the amount of water that is actually inside of your home and how much is being removed.
Something else that is nice is the fact this unit has a humidity set feature. This feature allows you to set your humidity you want to have inside of the home or room and then it will work and reach that point. Then it will turn off when this level is met, which is a great feature that will allow you to have the right balance of humidity in your home.
What Do I Dislike With The Dehumidifier
Of all things, the one thing that I really dislike is the way the plug is configured on the unit. Unlike some of the units that we have looked at in the past that has the plug that is straight into the plug. Instead, this is one that the plug comes up and out to the plug. Kind of like the pain in the butt plugs that never fit anywhere and have to be plugged in all the time on the bottom plug.
My Final Thoughts On The Portable Dehumidifier
I have to say this is one dehumidifier that I really do like. It does remove quite a bit of water and compared to some of the other models that we have reviewed this model is one that does allow you to have a lot of different ways to move the unit around. The amount of moisture the unit removes and definitely the speed which it does it really makes this unit stand out for us. I have to say the Frigidaire 70-Pint Dehumidifier is good value for the money, if you can find it for an affordable price.
