Large Dehumidifier with Power

The Frigidaire FAD704DWD Energy Star 70-pint Dehumidifier is a very large machine that can power through high levels of humidity, even in large spaces. It works well to eliminate moisture in the air that cause mold and mildew problems. It also has a filter that will work to reduce airborne bacteria and odors.

Ease of Use

The Frigidaire FAD704DWD Energy Star 70-pint Dehumidifier has been designed with you in mind. There is a handle on top and handles on the sides, plus wheels, so it’s really easy to move from spot to spot. The filter that collects airborne pollutants and microbes is easy to pop out and wash. There are several electronic controls so that you can fully customize the power, even choose the exact level of humidity you want the room to be. This is a great function for comfort.

Designed for Efficiency

The Frigidaire FAD704DWD is an Energy Star rated appliance, so you can be sure that is using your energy wisely, saving you money on your bill. It has been designed to be fully operation without stopping when it’s set up with a drain system, which can be attached to a garden hose. Also, the canister can be used and it will alert you by shutting off when it’s full.

Strengths

Top Dry Air Outlet

Comparable dehumidifiers have an air outlet on the side for the dry air that is being recirculated into the room. With the side outlet design, you have to be careful where the machine is placed, so that the air blowing out has plenty of room to circulate. The Frigidaire FAD704DWD dehumidifier has an outlet on top instead. This means you can place it in a corner without loss of efficiency.

Continuous Drain

The continuous draining system is very easy to use. You can just hook up any standard garden hose to the drain outlet and then lead it to drain where you want. If you can just put the hose in the bathtub or a sink, this is a great option. If you can even trail the hose all the way to a garden bed, you could efficiently reuse the water.

It Gets the Job Done

The biggest strength of this unit is just how well it works. It quickly removes excess moisture from the air, even in large spaces. With the built-in gauge, you can even watch as the humidity level drops.

Weaknesses

Noise Level

Because this is a large unit with a lot of power, it is not the quietest option. You will be able to hear it, even in another room.

Bucket Handles Can Break

The handles on the bucket that catches water (if you aren’t using the continuous drain) are a bit flimsy compared to the size of the bucket. If you use caution, this shouldn’t be an issue. If they do break, you can still use the unit and the only fallback will be that the bucket will be difficult to carry to the sink.

Overall Review

Despite a bit of noise and one design flaw with the empty bucket, this is a very solid unit that works well in large spaces. You’ll appreciate the easy to use continuous drain option that works with any garden hose. This Frigidaire is an Energy Star rated appliance, so you’ll get a lot of use for a little bit of electricity. Overall, this is a solid investment and should suit the needs of anyone who needs to reduce humidity in a larger space quickly.
