Energy Efficient Power

The Keystone Energy Star 70 Pt. Dehumidifier is an efficient and powerful dehumidifier that works quickly to clear the air of excess moisture. It removes up to 70 pints of water from the air within 24 hours, making it a serious machine for larger areas. It features a collection reservoir that can hold 1.3 gallons of collected water before it needs to be emptied. There is an indicator light to let you know when it’s full, and the unit will auto shut off to avoid spillage when the bucket is full.

Easy to Use

This dehumidifier has several features that make it fit seamlessly into your life. For one thing, the castors on bottom make it possible to easily move it from room to room. Also, the digital controls with LED display mean that you can easily monitor how well it’s working and customize the humidity level. The filter can be easily removed to be cleared of the dust and other air pollutants it captured.

Strengths

Filter Change Light

In addition to being easy to remove and clean, the filter also has an indicator light to let you know when it’s time to clean it. Since a dirty filter can negatively impact performance, this is a nice feature that keeps the machine working well.

24 Hour Timer

There is a timer on this unit that allows you to let it run for 24 hours before automatically shutting off. This is a nice feature if you plan to be gone for a day or two but still want to keep your humidity levels under control.

Continuous Drainage Option

In addition to the sizeable drainage bucket, you can also choose to set this machine up with continuous drainage. The hole connects to a standard garden hose, so all you have to do is find a nearby drainage spot and you can run the machine without stopping to empty the bucket.

Weaknesses

Side Air Outlet

The air outlet for this model is on the side. The Keystone 70 pint has some similar sized competition that lets the dry out on top, which gives more options for where you can place it. With this model, you’ll need to be aware not to place it in the corner or against a wall that will block the air outlet and prevent air circulation.

Hose Hookup Not Easy

This Keystone dehumidifier is not the easiest model to set up with the garden hose drainage. It can even wiggle itself loose which could cause the machine to auto shut off. You’ll have to keep an eye on it.

Overall Review

Despite some issues with the hose drainage system and the fact that the air outlet is on the side, this is a good, solid air dehumidifier that works in a larger space. The Keystone Energy Star 70 Pt. Dehumidifier stands up well to more expensive competition with similar capacity. You’ll appreciate the easy to use features such as the long extension cord and easy to clean filter.
