Frigidaire dehumidifiers are mainly three models : the Frigidaire 70 Pint, 50 Pint, and 30 Pint. As you have noticed, they are classified by the “pint” and the price of these units increases relatively to the pint capacity. Pint is simply the capacity of a dehumidifier to remove moisture per day, or 24-hour period. So for example the Frigidaire dehumidifier 70 pint is capable of removing 70 pints of moisture per day. All having the same objective of protecting your home from mold and mildew caused by excess moisture, these devices are equipped with some interesting technologies and features to serve this purpose.
Digital controls and wireless remotes make certain models easy to use and convenient, while other units opt for simple knob-style controls that save money with their simplicity.
The 30 pint Frigidaire dehumidifier has got all what a modern dehumidifier has to have. As it’s name indicates, the FFAD3033R1 dehumidifies 30 pint of water per day, equivalent to 14 liters per day. In addition to it’s nicely designed unit, this device comes with an electronic controls panel in which you find various useful options. First, you can control the exact percentage of humidity level that you wish your room or space to be at. This dehumidifier is able to keep running via a timer 24 hours long. And if you have kids, there is a control lock to prevent them from playing with controls. On the electronic controls panel you find also a ¨bucket full¨ indicator that alerts you when the tank is full of water and needs to be emptied, as well as a ¨filter clean¨ indicator. Once the tank is almost full, the unit will shut automatically. The Frigidaire FFAD3033R1 has also a continuous drain option which allows to attach a hose to the unit. This is a nice features as it frees you from the task of having to empty the water bucket everytime it’s full.
The Frigidaire FFAD3033R1 is a nice looking modern unit, which unlike its predecessor, doesn’t have big holes on the front. This is important as it won’t spoil your interior design. Frigidaire released its new line of dehumidifiers in a unified look, so the 30 pint, 50 pint and 70 pint Frigidaire all have the same design. Besides the look, the FFAD3033R1 feels sturdy and is made to resist long travelling and which has a nicely designed carrying handle. This Frigidaire 30 pint dehumidifier is considered a SpaceWise portable design as it has caster wheels and top and side handles which makes it easy to move from space to space. It’s also lighter than expected for that kind of devices as it weighs only 34 lbs.
This dehumidifier comes with many interesting features like the electronic controls panel where you find fan speeds, filter clean, bucket full indicator and many more. This model has a removable bucket that collects the dehumidified water. This new model’s tank capacity is a little bit lower than the previous one : 13.1 pint tank vs 16.3 pint tank. This is somehow important because when you’re not around, and the tank is full, the dehumidifier would stop working automatically. When your’re not far from the unit, you can hear the beep indicating that the bucket is full and needs to be emptied. While the 70 Pint Frigidaire has more advantages, the 50 pint Frigidaire is better on this point as it will require less emptying and replacing time than a its 70 pint counterpart that removes moisture and collects water more quickly.
Just like every machine that has a fan, the Frigidaire FFAD5033R1 has a noise output. This dehumidifier was tested at long range ( 10 feet away from the unit) on low fan speed, and the average noise output was 48.8 dB (decibels). Generally, this is not considered noisy and we can say that it’s a quiet dehumidifier. Surprisingly, you may think that the Frigidaire 50 pint is much quieter than it’s bigger brother, 70 pint, but according to tests, this is not true. While the average noise output of the 50 pints in the previous was 48.8, the 70 pint is only 2 decibels higher (50.3 dB ). So if you’re to decide whether you buy the 70 or the 50 pint Frigidaire based on which one is more quiet, this is not a parameter to take in consideration because it’s trivial. The noise level though increases on the medium and high fan speed settings on both dehumidifiers. It’s important to know that the Frigidaire FFAD5033R1 is one of the most quiet 50 pint dehumidifiers out there. Also, many dehumidifiers have only two fan speeds, while this one has three.
The Frigidaire FFAD7033R1 is, as its name indicates, a 70 pint dehumidifier capable of dehumidifying 15 liters ( 70 pint ) of water per 24 hour. “Effortless” is the word on which the manufacturer insists when presenting the features of this model because of its ease of use and efficiency. This dehumidifier features a humidity control option which gives control over the amount of humidity you want your space to be at. It has the possibility to drain continuously by attaching a hose to the unit. It has an easy to use 13.1-pint water tank which once full, an indicator on the control panel will alert you. When the water bucket is almost full, the dehumidifier will shut off automatically. That said, it’s better to use the continuous drain option so that you won’t face the down time in which the unit won’t be dehumidifying because you would be busy emptying the bucket. Also, because this dehumidifier is designed ot protect your home from mold and mildew that results from excess of moisture, the unit is equipped with a removable/washable filter that is supposed to reduce bacteria and unwanted odors.
Just like all the latest Frigidaire dehumidifiers, this 70 pint model is designed in a clean rectangular shape with sleek lines. The unit feels sturdy and is a Space Wise device portable dehumidifier that has easy to use handles on the top and on the sides as well as caster wheels. This design features are very useful as it makes the dehumidifier very easy to carry in case you want to use it in different rooms. In addition to that, this dehumidifier is not really heavy as it weighs only 47 lbs. The electronic control panel is easy to use and is located on the top of the unit making it easy to read.
