    Great for basement use with drain hose

    I needed a dehumidifier for the basement of my 2,800 square foot two story house. I read about this model and purchased it knowing it had an optional hose attachment I could use since I have a drain that goes to my sump pump area in my basement. I had the unit shipped to my house. Set up took about 5 mins mostly reading the directions and removing packinging material. I started by using the standard bucket that comes with the unit. This did fill quite quickly, easily being emptied once every six hours. After the first week, I installed the hose attachment. I cut about a 2.5 foot piece of extra hose I had and made a gentle grade from the hose output (left side when looking at the front of the unit) and emptying into my drain. I have the humidity set at 50. The unit works great, no drips from the hose connection, drains into my drain fine, gets the humidity to about 48 in the basement, shuts down the condenser, then if it stays there, shuts down the fan until the humidity goes above 50% or so. For the cost of this unit with the hose attachment it is great for my use. If you are going to use the bucket option, be ready to be emptying the bucket 2 times a day to keep the humidity down. I am very happy with my purchase.

    Frigidaire 30 pt Dehumidifier

    Does a great job for the upstairs of our 3 br apt where the humidity was really heavy. Being only a 30pt capacity the bucket was full roughly every other day. Which isn't a bad thing (for my family at least) as my sons are both Autism Spectrum so we made it part of the routine to empty the water. The filter is also really easy to clean too. Cleaning the bucket is a bit more difficult until you get the hang of how best to remove to clear plastic cover and IT DOES NEED TO BE CLEANED at least every 2 weeks (I wipe it out with a damp cloth weekly to prevent buildup, but that's a personal choice). It runs great, I set it to 55% and it was noticably less humid within an hour or so of turning it on. I highly recommend this product to those looking for something that is not highly expensive but that does what it's needed to do. Looking at a 50pt dehumidifier version of this for our basement.

    Small but very effective dehumidifier

    We purchased this model after a long research to replace our old one that died after many years. I liked the clean and simple design, and I trusted the reviews! This smaller dehumidifier is doing a great job after 7 months of non-stop operation. We purchased a hose so the water drains into the pit for sump pump directly. We haven't had any mechanical issues even though we are running it all day long since June 2015. Only occasionally I turn it off just so that I can clean the lint screen. This was a great purchase and I definitely recommend this product for anyone looking for a reliable and effective dehumidifier.

    It's fantabulous. I did a lot of research on dehumidifiers before buying this one. Our previous dehumidifier broke after 2.5 years. All Frigidaire dehumidifiers had great reviews and they seem to make solid products. I usually go for the cheaper model but I wanted something that was going to last. Keep that in mind. Yes you can get a similar off brand for cheaper but theres a great chance it will last half the life if not more than the Frigidaire. So far so good. I hooked up a hose to let it drain into our basement floor drain. Easy to setup. Its built well. Compared to our previous off brand, the door opens and closes better and has a solid feel. Finally, its lighter than expected which is nice because I do take it other places. Very satisfied!

    So i purchased this unit for my apartment. The building has an issue with humidity and mold gets on everything due to this. Ever since i purchased this unit, i can breathe so much better and i no longer get allergies at home. I started feeling the difference within a day of having the unit on. I currently have it inside my bedroom since it's the most problematic area and i clear out a full bin of water a day. The only reason i did not rate it 5 stars is because after about 2 hours, the unit starts to blow out warm air instead of cool air and therefore warms up my room. My solution was to just have it on while I'm not there lol and the AC on when i am lol.

    I live in the basement, and it was becoming uncomfortable. I considered a portable AC, but heat wasn't my problem, moisture was. I did extensive research before buying this unit. No assembly was required. Heavy to lift out of the box, but after that, the wheels glide quite nicely. I can't believe how much moisture there was in the basement! As per the manual. I left it on continuously for the first 3 days. I dumped water frequently, but it was easy. After a week, i would only need to dump water once a day. I've had it for over a month and my living space has become so comfortable. The only reason that I didn't give 5 stars is because the unit blows out warm air, but with dehumidifiers, that can't be avoided.

    Does the Job!

    Replaced my 10 year old piece of junk dehumidifier after it flooded my brand new floor. I have a split level so the downstairs gets very humid in the summer. This runs much quieter than my old one, but you can still hear it a bit if you are in the other room. I set it to 40% humidity, so it pretty much runs constantly so far. It's been an extremely humid July/August/September. Electric bill is higher due to the constant running, but electric rates have sky-rocketed, so not really the fault of the dehumidifier. I like the style, weight, controls, etc. Bucket isn't awkward to remove and put back in. To sum up - it does the job WELL, and fairly quietly.

    I was looking for a good dehumidifier for quite a long time;since my old one had to retire because it wasn't doing a good job and relatives who visited my house were complaining on an unpleasant odor that was coming from the basement.Installation was easy,and within 4 days I noticed a big difference,the odor is gone and it's noticeably easier to breathe in the basement.Now,the device is working intermittently and not non-stop as at first couple of days.I don't even have to monitor the device or to empty the drain-bucket,which is a good thing! I am expecting at least 5-10 years of service from this device,will keep ya'll updated.
