Design

This model features a simple and sleek design. The white housing can easily blend into the decor of your room. It comes with a condensate bucket that can be removed whenever you wish. Also, the two side grip carry handles along with the four rolling casters turn this device into a portable unit that can be moved from room to room. This item features two digital display screens: one is used to control the temperature, while on the other you can check the level of humidity during normal operation and the desired level of humidity after you adjust the settings.

Features

There are three methods available for draining any moisture found in your home. You can choose between the following settings: manual, gravity or pump draining. Another great feature is the automatic defrost mode. If you let your dehumidifier run in temperatures below 41 degrees Fahrenheit, you may notice some frost starting to build on the evaporator coils. The defrost indicator illuminates and the system will start the defrost cycle. Moreover, the pump function that this device comes with is very good. It automatically senses when you want to start pumping and it doesn’t require any settings. This device comes with practical features, such as indicators to alert you when the water condensate bucket is full. Additionally, the device automatically shuts down in order to prevent any direct damage. You can set the level of ideal humidity content in your room thanks to the built-in humidistat.

Energy efficiency

This product is effective on several levels: it absorbs moisture and helps recover the stored water. The risk of fungal growth is greatly reduced by the absence of mold caused by a high level of humidity. The quality of indoor air is therefore improved. The Friedrich D70BP has a reduced energy consumption (about 80% reduction compared to traditional heating and ventilation). It is energy star qualified. This is a very important fact to keep in mind because ENERGY STAR certified units come with more efficient refrigeration coils, compressors, and fans than the traditional types. This one also features an air filter that can be easily slid out, and it’s entirely washable, so you clean it when you notice any debris on the filter.

Other considerations

It comes with 1-year limited warranty and 5 years on the refrigerant system. Regarding customer service, don’t be afraid to contact them directly on their official site. There, you can send in all your questions and comments. Moreover, if you want to get more information regarding it, don’t forget to check the F.A.Q and the user manuals that you can also find online. Keep in mind that it can become quite noisy when you choose to set it on high speed. You can fix this issue by setting the device on high when you leave the room and on low when you are in the room.

    Is it a good idea to place this dehumidifier in the room of my child?

      On the highest speed setting, this model tends to get quite noisy. But if you set it on the low speed setting while the small one sleeps, it surely won’t be loud.

    It’s a great product from Friedrich. I used to own a GE but ever since they started manufacturing them in Chine, I replaced it with this one and I can say it works great. The pump that sends the water out at a high pressure is an ingenious feature.

    I need a dehumidifier for a 2,000 sq. ft. room. Will the Friedrich D70BP handle a room this size? Thanks.

      Hi, Simon. This unit is designed to handle rooms up to 1,300 sq.ft. so it might turn out too weak for all that space. Consider another model, like the Keystone that is more suitable for rooms over 2,000 sq. ft.
