  • Intake is in the rear, and vent is out one side; this means you can’t place the unit next to a wall without positioning it so that the intake and vent are unblocked this a challenge, and it could be annoying to people who use it in compact living area.
  • The tank doesn’t have an easily-visible level indicator

Our opinion

We recommend that you start by deciding whether you need a unit with a built-in pump.  Note that should you absolutely require pump drainage (if you need to drain the unit far away or above the dehumidifier’s location) then you can still purchase a unit that doesn’t include a built-in pump. You will then just need to buy a condensate pump and hosing separately.

Really easy to remove the full bucket and carry to the sink to dump. A full container isn’t that heavy, about 13.5 lbs, to carry with the single handle and to dump

It just really easy to use and works great. Nice and quiet too, about the same noise as a small window a/c unit running

The handle is great when you need to lift it a little to roll it around on the wheels

Very low percentage of negative consumer reviews in addition to our own observations about its superior build quality indicate that it’s more durable and reliable than most other 70 pint dehumidifiers in the market.

That said, the Frigidaire FFAD7033R1 Dehumidifier is a great choice, if you can beat the price, but it will remain a favorite home accessory for years to come.
