Been using this product for a few days and am happy with it. I own an older farmhouse and there can be a damp smell from the basement. After 2 days of running on 50% humidity, low fan speed I can tell the air feels and smells fresher inside. The air that blows out is more warm than cool just FYI (it is that way for all dehumidifiers). But so far, it's doing a good job on lower settings. I like the size tank and that it has various options for settings.
This is our second SPT dehumidifier in the last 7 years. We loved our first one, and it lasted for six years in a basement. We are just as pleased with this one--it's quiet and efficient!
I know there is a recall for these dehumidifiers. However, I bought a $250 70-pint Whytner dehumidifier (after disabling my recalled Frigidaire one). The new dehumidifier was awful. I couldnt even remove the collection bin without spilling water all over the floor. I was so frustrated with Whytner that I called Frigidaire customer service and they told me that if the serial number started with a number higher than 3, I was good to go. I was somewhat leery of buying from Overstock because it could have been the same recalled dehumidifier. But I took a chance an ordered the same brand Frigidaire 70-pint dehumidifier. The serial number was higher than 3 and it is marvelous. Whoever designed this Frigidaire dehumidifier should get a medal. I can see the water level clearly (not like the other one), it doesn't leak all over my floor (like the other one), it stops when it is full (not like the other one). It is a joy to have.
Purchased this to replace and old unit. I needed a Dehumidifier that would send the air from the unit forward and or up and not to the side because of where it was placed in the room. Frigidaire makes a solid well made Dehumidifier-I am pleased with its performance. Thank you Overstock.com for a great price as well !
