Combat Harmful Humidity
Humidity in your home or office, the result of excessive moisture in the air, can lead to musty odors, mold, mildew, and even structural damage. The result is a harmful indoor environment that can cause discomfort and trigger allergy symptoms. When excessive moisture is your problem, an effective residential dehumidifier is the answer. The BHD-701-H and BHDP-701-H are ideal dehumidifiers for those who:
- Want to combat excessive moisture in the air
- Need to eliminate a musty smell from a room or basement
- Have a medium or large area that needs to be dehumidified, but is constantly cool
- Want a preventative measure in place to avoid mold or mildew problems
Advanced Automatic Capabilities
Nothing says convenience like automatic enhancements that practically do the work for you. Intelligently designed with the capability to operate independently, these safety features function to protect you and your home and help to extend the life of your BHD-701-H dehumidifier:
Frost can begin to build up on the evaporator coils of your dehumidifier when operating in low temperatures. This can eventually damage the dehumidifier. However, Comfort-Aire's auto defrost feature cycles the compressor on and off and operate the fan until the frost disappears, shielding the dehumidifier from potential damage.
LED indicator lights—including a check-filter indicator, which illuminates when it is time to clean the filter; and the bucket-full indicator, which notifies you when the condensate drainage bucket is full—ensure that your Comfort-Aire dehumidifier is performing in optimum efficiency.
When water fills the condensate container, an indicator light on the electronic panel will signal that the bucket is full. The dehumidifier will shut off automatically and resume operation when the bucket is emptied.
3-Minute Compressor Time Delay
To protect the compressor, a 3-minute delay prevents the dehumidifier from starting prematurely. During a time delay, the dehumidifier cannot restart within the first 3 minutes after it has stopped. This function also protects your compressor from being abruptly stopped, which may cause internal damage. The BHD-701 dehumidifier only stops immediately due to frost buildup, a full condensate bucket, or power failure.
In the event that a power outage occurs in your home or office, the auto restart feature will automatically resume the dehumidifier's operation. Once the power is restored, the dehumidifier will restart in the last setting used.
Multiple Drainage Options
During the dehumidification process, excess water that accumulates is either collected in the Comfort-Aire BHD-701-H's convenient front-loading water bucket or can be automatically emptied using a drainage hose (not included). To remove the excess water manually, use the built-in carrying handle to lift the bucket and simply empty the water when the bucket-full indicator light glows. To set up continuous drainage, attach a drainage hose to the dehumidifier using the included adapter. You can use a standard garden hose or a dehumidifier drainage hose that can be purchased inexpensively at home improvement stores. This allows you to continuously drain collected water into a convenient location, such as a nearby drain.
If water needs to be pumped up vertically for removal or across longer distances, such as when the system is placed in a basement, choose the Comfort-Aire BHDP-701-H. This model contains a condensate pump that provides up to 16.4 feet of vertical lift and comes with 16.4 feet of flexible drainage tubing.
These Comfort-Aire dehumidifiers come loaded with a digital control panel with straightforward touch buttons. These easy-to-use controls, located on top of the dehumidifier for easy accessibility, make operating the unit effortless. With the simple press of a button you can program your portable dehumidifier for continuous operation, switch to a higher fan speed, set the programmable timer, and adjust the setting to your ideal humidity level. In addition, the digital control pad always displays an accurate humidity level in your space within a range of 30 percent relative humidity (RH) to 90 percent RH.
