Smaller Size with Great Features

This Frigidaire FAD301NWD Energy Star 30-Pint Dehumidifier is a smaller heavy duty dehumidifier. It’s still got a lot of power and some of the useful features of the larger Frigidaire dehumidifiers. For example, it has the integrated top and side handles plus the wheels on bottom, so it’s easy to slide it from room to room. It also has the continuous drain option that works with a standard garden hose.

Efficient Air Solutions

Not only does this dehumidifier quickly clear excess moisture from the air, it also has the ability to reduce airborne pollution and microbes. This makes it a great product for people with asthma or air sensitivities. It is Energy Star rated, so you know it will use less electricity and work efficiently.

Strengths

Extra Long Power Cord

One of the great features of this unit is the extra-long power cord. In a larger space, this is a benefit because you’ll have more options of where you can put the unit. Its six feet long, so you shouldn’t ever need an extension cord, making the unit safer and less prone to electrical issues.

Table or Floor

This unit is small enough to be put on a sturdy, large table. This makes it a good option for a high-powered humidifier that can still be placed out of reach of kids or pets, if needed. This is also good for basements that can develop standing water problems.

Top Exhaust

Like other Frigidaire dehumidifiers in this line, the exhaust that puts out dry air is on top. This is a great strength because it means you can put the unit against a wall or in a corner, which you would not be able to do if the exhaust output were on the side, as it is with many similar dehumidifiers of other brand names.

Weaknesses

No Digital Controls

This Frigidaire FAD301NWD differs from the larger ones in the line because it does not have digital controls or indicators. While that is a money saver and helps keep the cost of this unit low, it does make it less user friendly.

Water Reservoir is Unwieldy

The most noticeable issue with this dehumidifier is that the water reservoir bucket that catches the water can be difficult to remove and replace. Luckily, you only have to do this every other day or so, and you still have the option of using the hose instead.

Overall Review

While this is not the largest dehumidifier in the Frigidaire line, it packs a punch for its size and for the price point, working like a bigger machine and featuring a lot of the great features of the larger Frigidaire’s. It’s an efficient appliance with Energy Star rating. The continuous drain option that works with a garden hose, plus the long extension cord and the ability to put it on a table means that you have several options for how to set up this unit.
