At 15 x 23.2 x 12 in, Friedrich D70BP 70-pint is not a very bulky dehumidifier for its category. It is however heavy at around 50 lb that we can’t figure out why. Transporting around the dehumidifier is a chore despite having 4 very sturdy casters. Moving to the design, Friedrich has a very clean distinctive look that you can tell its Friedrich even from far. The front condensate bucket though is too clean for our taste that should have included a water level indicator. One saving grace is the bucket can be easily slid out for emptying. Air inlets are nicely tucked on the sides with outlets located at the top. At the back, you have the built-in drain pump that can drain the condensation out vertically or horizontally. There is also a continuous drainage outlet that can be connected with a garden hose to push the collected water out.
Let’s draw our attention now to the controls. Starting on the left is the power on/ off button that is self-explanatory. Next to it is the fan speed button where you can set it to either low or high. Timers button can be set to turn on or off the dehumidifier. Use the arrow buttons to adjust the interval timer between 1-24 hours. The arrows button can also be used to set the desired relative humidity level you want the dehumidifier to work on. During adjustment, you can refer to the digital humidity display. There is also another digital display that shows the current room temperature. The most right °C/ °F buttons allow you to switch between °C or °F in the temperature display. Lastly, there are 2 passive indicators light on top. The bucket lamp will light up once the bucket is full and needs emptying. The defrost lamp will light up when the dehumidifier is in defrosting mode.
Pints and speed
What’s inside countFriedrich D70BPA 70 Pint is powered by refrigerator technology that is very effective in bringing down dampness in a room. By absorbing damp air towards the air inlet, the permanent filter will block particulates like dust and hair from moving forward. The damp air will now go through condensation via the refrigerated coils to extract the moisture out. The extracted moisture will slowly drip down to the bucket while the dry air will be heated and release as mist. The refrigeration process will repeat itself until a humidity point is achieved.
Keep it downLet's talk about noise that perhaps is not Friedrich D70BP 70 Pint strongest suit. You will only hear soft humming nose when the dehumidifier is running at low speed. Upon high speed selected, a clear fan noise can be heard that is very distracting during work and sleep. So keep it at low speed if you going to operate it for long hours. As for power consumption, Friedrich D70BP has a modest power usage with its Energy Star Certification. It is comparable to a 50-pint unit unless you kept it running high all the time.
