Frigidaire FAD704DWD Energy Star 70-pint Dehumidifier
The Frigidaire FAD704DWD Energy Star 70-pint Dehumidifier is voted as one of the best dehumidifiers to date. It is a must within any home to remove unwanted excess moisture in the air, and to prevent mold and mildew creeping into your home. This particular Dehumidifier is one of the most well thought out products, to its competitors with some clever, and unique features, however it is slightly larger than other Dehumidifiers, and has some unwanted issues.

 
Features

  • A low temperature function allows you to save both energy and money
  • Built-in antibacterial filter, which reduces the number of unwanted air born particles
  • Electronic control system for quick, easy use
  • Can take up to 70 pints of water in a day
  • Capable of Continual Drainage by using a hose, when located near a suitable drain
  • Weighs about 46lbs

 
Proz

  • Comes with a very long 6ft, 3-pin plug cable, so there is no need for you to buy an extension cable, to increase the overall cost of the product
  • The electronic control system has a timer, so that you can have it on at certain times of a day, for a set period of time
  • Has the ability to control the percentage of humidity within the room, within the touch of a button
  • Easy removal of water with a collection bucket that holds 16.3 pints, and can be emptied just by pulling it out
  • It can remove up to 70 pints of water in a day, which is a vast improvement on the older models

 
Cons

  • This Dehumidifier has a weight of 46lbs, which is heavier when compared to older models, and other leading competitors
  • The Continual Drainage System can be very difficult to set up, and requires a large amount of patience
  • It must not be used on its side, as this can cause it to leak
  • This Dehumidifier does not have a very long life-span, and only lasts on average around 6-12 months, so don’t expect this to last forever
  • The system can remove 70 pints of water in a day, so if you do find yourself removing this amount of water you are going to need to empty the system regularly, or set up the frustrating continual drainage system

 
Where

All in all, this Dehumidifier may be voted as one of the best, but this has some major issues, regarding setting up the Continual Drainage System, and also the short life-span, which are two major issues in this product. I’m sure the last thing you want is for it to stop working after only 6 months. Because of this, I would only recommend this product if you are only looking at a Dehumidifier for the short term, not as something for the long term, although this does have some useful features, such as a large removal of water in a day, which you will certainly in a hot and humid environment.
