    Danby DDR70A2GP Healthy Basement Package -
    A Sylvane Exclusive!

    Danby 70-Pint Dehumidifier Healthy Basement Package Purchase the dehumidifier or choose our Danby DDR70A2GP Healthy Basement Package, a Sylvane exclusive, to get everything you need to solve and prevent humidity problems in your basement. The Healthy Basement Package includes the following accessories along with the Danby DDR70A2GP 70-Pint Dehumidifier:

    • Hartell Condensate Pump
      • This external condensate pump allows you to pump collected water across longer distances or upward directly into a drain or sink, eliminating the need to empty the bucket and improving the efficiency of gravity drainage alone.
      • Provides up to a 15 feet of vertical lift.
      • Includes 20 feet of flexible plastic drain tubing to suit multiple drainage applications.
    •  
    • Acu-Rite Remote Thermometer and Humidity Sensor
      • This thermometer/humidity sensor combo package allows you to place a remote sensor in your basement to monitor the humidity level from upstairs or any convenient location.
      • The thermometer is compatible with up to 3 remote sensors, which makes it perfect for monitoring multiple areas from one central location. One basement sensor is included. Additional remote humidity sensors can be purchased separately.
      • Thermometer/sensor package features min/max memory of temperature and humidity in each area as well as atomic clock and moon phase display.

    Automatic Humidity Control

    Dehumidifying problem areas is easier than ever with the Danby 70-Pint Dehumidifier. Simply set your desired humidity level from 30% to 90%, adjusting it in 5% increments, and select from 1 of 2 fan speeds. We recommend setting your humidity between 45 and 50% to maintain a healthy, mold-free home. Both the dehumidifier's compressor and fan will run until your humidity setting is reached. Once it's reached, the compressor and fan shut off and run intermittently to maintain your desired humidity. Please note that the fan will shut off after a short 3 to 5 minute delay.

    Portable Design with User-Friendly Controls

    The Danby DDR70A2GP Dehumidifier features a user-friendly electronic control panel and a portable design that allows you to move it freely throughout your home. Use the pushbutton controls to set your humidity, choose a fan speed, view your current humidity level, and program the 24-hour shutoff timer. Easy-to-see indicator lights also let you know when the dehumidifier tank is full or running in defrost mode. Plus, with built-in carrying handles on each side and 4 easy-roll casters, you can move the DDR70A2GP around your home for humidity control wherever it’s needed.

    Additional Features

    • Dual Drainage Options - Drain the dehumidifier manually by emptying the tank or attach the included drain hose to the drain port for continuous gravity drainage.
    • 24-Hour Shutoff Timer – Use the timer to program a shutoff time up to 24 hours in advance to conserve power.
    • Automatic Restart – Should a power failure occur, the DDR70A2GP will resume operating in the default factory setting of 60% humidity on the lowest fan speed once power returns for peace of mind.
    • Automatic Defrost – In temperatures below 41 degrees F, frost may build up on the evaporator coils. When this happens, the dehumidifier shuts off its compressor and enters defrost mode automatically to melt frost quickly and resume normal operation.
    • Washable Air Filter – A washable air filter helps remove dust and allergens from the air and keeps the dehumidifier running efficiently.
    • Quiet Operation – At its highest fan speed, the Danby 70-Pint Dehumidifier has a noise level of 55 decibels, equivalent to sounds in an average home.
    • Environmentally Friendly Design – This model uses eco-friendly R-410A refrigerant, which does not deplete ozone. It’s also Energy Star-rated for more efficient, money-saving operation over comparable non-Energy Star dehumidifiers.

    Summary

    The Danby DDR70A2GP Dehumidifier solves problem humidity in large spaces up to 3,800 square feet. Purchase the unit or get our Healthy Basement Package, which also includes a condensate pump and thermometer/humidity sensor for greater value and flexibility in use.

    What Customers Love

    • Hassle-Free Dehumidifying – Simply set your desired humidity level and the dehumidifier maintains that level throughout your space by cycling the compressor on and off.
    • Money-Saving Operation – Energy Star dehumidifiers like this model are built with more efficient refrigeration coils, compressors, and fans so they use less energy to dehumidify your space and keep your operating costs in check.

    Things to Consider

    • Need a Pump? – Consider adding a condensate pump if continuous gravity drainage or manual emptying isn’t realistic in your space. Or choose the Healthy Basement Package, which includes a pump.

    The humidifier was easy to set up and had very simple directions. I chose to utilize the drain hose instead of the removable bucket. (I will note that the bucket is not hard to remove as stated in other reviews from other sites - if it were full and had to be removed, it may splash a little, but would pose little danger in a total spill) The unit does have to be elevated higher than the drain you will utilize. I currently have my unit on a table beside an unused toilet in my basement. The hose is thin plastic and could be cut easily to a shorter length. It also fits perfectly into a 3/4 inch PVC pipe. I eventually plan to tap mine into the main drain for our home using PVC.
    I placed the unit in my open, 2700 square foot basement on a Friday night. The home is 5 years old, and we have had humidity and mold problems since it was built. The basement temperature was 70 degrees and the humidity was 68% when I turned the humidifier on. I have had the unit running for 8 days and the humidity in my basement is now 40%. It took 6 days to reach this humidity. I have the unit set for 40% but it will go lower if you desire. I do not know how long it would take it to decrease the humidity farther. I also ran a box fan to increase air circulation for the first 5 days, but have not had it back on since. The humidifier now only runs when the humidity increases above 40%. However the fan does continue to run constantly. I have mine set on the high setting.
    The humidity dropped to 55% within the first 24 to 48 hours and steadily decreased from there. I'm very happy with this product and plan to order another for the basement. Although one did the job, I hold the opinion that two units are justified for a basement the size of mine and will decrease the workload on an individual unit. The fan does run constantly. It can not be heard upstairs in my house, and would not pose a noise problem in a room by itself. Probably not good for an occupied bed room or living room. The fan noise is comparable to a regular box fan.
    The temperature in my basement has been a steady 68-72 degrees.

    The basic design is good -- it moves a lot of air, which is vital for good drying -- but there are problems. The biggest one is that it won't drain out the hose connection. At best, it was still putting water into the tank, which would eventually fill the tank and turn off the dehumidifier. At worst, it was leaking from the hose connection (a lot -- big puddles on the floor). Maybe I got a bad one -- if Sylvane is willing to replace it (and it's any better) I'll edit this (or add another comment).

    Additionally, while the tank is easy to remove and replace (unlike some other dehumidifiers I've owned) I still haven't figured out a way to empty it without making a mess. There's a lot of structural material inside the tank that traps the water and makes it hard to empty. Sloppy design.

    Comments about Danby DDR70A2GP 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

    I bought the Danby dehumidifier about a year ago after Frigidaire bought back my defective Frigidaire dehumidifier. Prior to that I had a Whirlpool dehumidifier that stopped working after one year. I set the Danby at 50% and run the fan on high. No problems and my unfinished basement is dry. I used the included drain hose for continuous operation and no need to empty bucket. There was no instruction on which way to face the filter, but it appears to work either way you face it. The fan runs constantly but it is rated energy efficient. If you register it online, the warranty is extended by two months. I purchased the three year extended warranty with the money I saved with a coupon, which is available online.

      I got one with a pump and it pumps into a sink in my basement. Yes, it is a little loud, but not to the point that it bothers anyone. It does throw off some heat, but the basement is cool anyway, so it's OK. The main thing is it works. Really well. It is pulling a ton of moisture out of the air. There is no smell, no excess moisture. It works GREAT!! It's been running almost a year now and I am very pleased.

      Good at water removal if set to 30 and runs all the time. Water level is hard to see. Previous owned GE Dehumidifier had red ball to show water removed level. Water bucket is large, but flimsy. Handle will come out when emptying if not careful. Price is good compared to others.

                Comments about Danby DDR70A2GP 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

                The unit runs defrost up in the 60 deg range. This seems a bit high but agrees with manual. I tested the unit with the lowest humidity setting to see how much water it would produce in 24 hours. The unit does not seem to produce 70 pints (actually measured 19 pints), but assume that would be the max in higher humidity conditions with high fan speed. However - It does maintain the humidity set point at 55% under the house, which is all it needs to do. I have the under house vents closed, plastic down on the ground and powered vents for radon. This unit keeps the space dry and I now a have a nice storage space. Caution - if you read about the time for OFF/ON control - it is a one time action, meaning it cannot be used to run the unit only X number of hours a day. I guess you would have to place a time clock on the unit to have that function. As the fan runs all the time, I have it on the low setting. I would recommend this unit to others and the 4 star is due to the lack of a daily timer function.
