We all know a reduction in humidity leads to better air quality, and that is especially important indoors where humidity can lead to all types of problems.
Mold, mildew and dust mites contribute to wood and wall damage and are the leading causes of allergy symptoms and respiratory illnesses.
A good dehumidifier helps alleviate most of these problems.
Ranked in the top ten in independent tests by a variety of consumer testing bureaus, Frigidaire continues to provide energy efficient dehumidifiers for residential as well as industrial use.
Their top-selling 70-pint dehumidifier has a large pint container capacity allowing moisture to be removed from a medium-sized area very efficiently. Its 17-gallon reservoir capacity keeps you from emptying the reservoir tank frequently, and the external drainage hose option is available for those who want to set it up and forget it.
With the external drainage hose option, the water in the tank is automatically drained into a drain without having to empty the water manually. Though the external drainage hose connection is available, the drainage hose itself is an optional accessory.
Frigidaire dehumidifiers contain a number of other helpful features. A level indicator signal keeps you alerted to know when the reservoir tank is full and ready to be emptied. If it is full, the unit will shut off automatically – eliminating the possibility of water damage to your floor or nearby furnishings or other items.
The continuous operation also makes it unnecessary to turn the dehumidifier on and off. Instead, the unit senses the humidity level and turns itself on and off when needed to keep up with the humidity in the area.
The front-loading reservoir tank with a convenient handle and splash guard helps with manual emptying. And casters make it easy to move around. Both of these features makes it convenient to move from room to room if you have several places that require a dehumidifier, though Frigidaire dehumidifiers generally work in large areas, both residential and commercial spaces.
The quiet motor makes it a possibility not just for basements, but also for upper floors such as living rooms and bedrooms where humidity is an uncomfortable possibility in some parts of the country.
With two different fan speeds and a low operating temperature of 41˚F, Frigidaire dehumidifiers are a good choice for anyone who needs to dehumidify a basement. You can literally plug it in and leave it, especially if you have the optional drainage hose feature. If you do not choose this option, you simply check the bucket about every 24 hours during the humid summer months, or less frequently during other times of the year.
