The Friedrich D70BP is easy to set the humidity level from 30% up to 90% RH and the 24-hour timer is a big plus. The controls on this model are intuitive and easy to use. It also has casters and a carry handle if you want to move it in the room where you are.
Had the unit running within 10 minutes of receiving it so setup is incredibly fast. The first thing that is noticed is that it is much quieter than other brand models. The unit is also smaller and easier to start using than other popular brands. The fact that the condensation bin is accessible from the front makes it so much easier to maintain it. Another nice advantage to having the D70BP is that it is a very attractive unit because who wants an ugly looking unit in the room? It is also nice to have a digital temperature and humidity readout.
It tends to cycle quite often (3 to 4 minutes) which can be annoying. Although the unit itself is relatively quiet when working, the fan makes a noise when it is on but that is to be expected and all dehumidifiers have a “fan noise”.
The Bottom Line:
The Friedrich D70BP is definitely recommended for anyone looking for a dehumidifier that works well, looks great, and is easy to setup and use. Unlike other units this one is not quite as noisy. The built-in drain pump is very appreciated and the unit has programmable features that gives it a set and forget type of existence, which is easy on the user.
