Dehumidifier Review: Frigidaire FDF70S1 Basement Dehumidifier

Basement DehumidifierIf you're in the market for a good basement dehumidifier, look no further than the Frigidaire FDF70S1. This budget machine will only set you back about $225. Let's take a look at some of the features offered by this model.

Capacity

This dehumidifier's container can hold up to 17 pints of water. There is an indicator to let you know when the collection container is full. You can also connect a hose to the machine. This allows you to have the water emptied into a drain continuously. This high capacity dehumidifier can remove up to 70 pints of water a day.

Power

The Frigidaire FDF70S1 is also quite powerful. Your average dehumidifier can only reduce the relative humidity level down to 50 or so. This model can reduce the humidity level all the way down at 35 percent. 85 percent humidity is the highest it can go.

Filter

This model is also equipped with an anti-bacterial mesh filter. In addition to removing water, the filter also removes particles from the air. Filter maintenance is also quite easy. Simply slide the filter out from the bottom and wash it.

Portability

You may not always want to have your dehumidifier in the basement. Fortunately, the Frigidaire FDF70S1 offers easy portability. This is all thanks to the fact that the unit is equipped with a set of caster wheels.

Controls

This Basement Dehumidifier features an electronic control panel located in the top center of the machine. There is also a 24-hour shutoff timer, so you don't have to control the machine manually.

Fans

The Frigidaire FDF70S1 is capable of multiple fan speeds. The lowest fan speed moves air at a rate of 218 cubic feet per minute. On the higher fan speed, this model can achieve a rate of 277 cubic feet per minute.

Noise

One potential problem you may have with this model is the noise that it produces. It has a rating of 55.9 dBa. Therefore, you probably don't want to use it anywhere but your basement.

Overall, the Frigidaire FDF70S1 is a great budget dehumidifier for your basement. It can achieve a relative humidity level of 35 percent, with a maximum range of 85 percent. The collection container can hold 17 pints of water itself. However, you can also connect a hose and drain up to 70 pints of water a day. The washable filter removes both moisture and particulates from the air.
