Everyone likes their humidity levels in the room different. You can choose between 35% and 85% relative humidity.

You'll need to replace or clean the air filter periodically and a light on the control panel will come on letting you know it's time. The filter slides out from the front bottom of the unit. The Frigidaire will beep letting you know the water container is full and you need to go empty it. It's easy to remove and dump the water container as it has nice handles and pulls out from the front of the unit. The 17 pint container is strong and sturdy.

You are getting a very versatile machine with the Frigidaire dehumidifier. It can be used in a living environment or basement. By lowering the humidity in the room, the Frigidaire will make it seem cooler. That way you can save money in the summer and not have to run your air conditioning as much. By keeping the humidity levels lower in your home you not only make it more comfortable but you also make it less likely pests like termites will take up residence. These types of pests can be very damaging and it's good to try to prevent their growth as much as you can. With the Frigidaire FAD704TDP you can empty the water container by hand or you can easily set up a continuous drain hose to a drain in the floor of the room. If you're using the unit in your living room then you may not need to set up the continuous drain function as it's easier to just dump the water by hand. It's easiest in a wet basement or very humid area to set up a hose to automatically drain the collection container. If there is no drain in the floor, then you'll need to set up a sump pump to push the water to a sink or outside. If you don't want to use a pump then you'll need to elevate the unit or put it on a shelf and let gravity drain the reservoir. It needs to be secured on the shelf to prevent it from vibrating and rolling off onto the ground. The water hose drains out of an opening in the dehumidifier to a sump pump or other drainage system such as a French drain. It's hard to find a better one than the Frigidaire FAD704TDP Dehumidifier. It's great at lowering humidity levels, cleaning the air, and operates very efficiently. You can find it for around $220.
