We like about the Keystone KSTAD70B 70-pint that it comes equipped with several innovative features. We do not like the fact that it has a very small water tank.
These days, there are many people who deal with mold, which is without a doubt very dangerous. This happens due to the fact that the humidity level in their homes is not at a proper level. If you are in the same situation as well, then it is recommended to consider purchasing a dehumidifier. These units come in a large range of models, in order to meet everybody’s needs. The Keystone KSTAD70B 70-pint is one of those appliances that will do an excellent job. This unit costs $229.99 and it has been built to dehumidify a room up to 4500 square feet. Furthermore, it comes equipped with wonderful features. If you want to find out more information about this appliance, then you should have at this review.
The Keystone KSTAD70B has a more square design than other similar models. It comes with a white glossy finish which is much more susceptible to dust and dirt as well than those appliances that have a matte finish. It has the following dimensions : 11.2 x 15.5 x 23.2 inches, and it weighs 40 pounds. Thanks to the 4 durable rolling casters that this appliance comes equipped with, you will find very easy to move it from a room to another. It also includes some side handles which you can use for carrying it instead of moving it around on its casters. However, you will also find on the market devices that come equipped with a top extendable handle. The cord is 7.22 ft long, and the whole appliance is white and it doesn’t come in a different color.
This wonderful room dehumidifier can remove up to 70 pints of moisture from the air per day. It has been especially designed to dehumidify rooms up to 4500 square feet. The unit comes equipped with electronic controls with LED Display which is very easy to read, and a 24-hour timer as well. Furthermore, it also has an auto-restart that will save your settings during a power outage. The water tank comes with a transparent water level indicator. You will have a variety of water draining options thanks to the full-bucket alert with automatic shut-off and continuous draining option. You will certainly not have to deal with an unpleasant indoor air, due to the fact that the device also features a removable, easy-cleaning dust filter with a clean-filter alert. This unit has a standard operating temperature range of 41° to 95° Fahrenheit, which is actually the same as the most appliances of this type. The bad about this unit is that it does not have a built-in pump. Therefore, you will probably need to purchase a condensate pump separately, in case you need to drain the device to a location at a higher elevation than the location of the dehumidifier. There is also a defrost mode. If you activate it (at lower temperatures), the appliance’s compressor will actually turn off and only the fans will continue to operate to melt any frost that may have accumulated on the device’s evaporator coils. What you will probably do not like about this product is that it has a very small water tank. It is only 1.3 gallons. A small tank size actually means that you will have to empty the tank a lot more frequently than you would need to do with those units that have a larger tank.
This is one of the most energy efficient units available on the market these days. The device is rated at 720 watts, and even if you are planning to run it quite often, you will still not have to pay too much money on your energy bill, because it will not consume too much electricity in order to provide you the desired results.
The defrost light illuminates when the defrost mode is being activated. This product is UL Listed, and it has a noise level of 56 dBA. The manufacturer offers a standard 1 year warranty on the device, and 2 to 5 year warranty on the sealed system that includes the compressor, condenser, etc. For further information, customers can contact the Customer Service department.
