From mold and mildew to clammy air, allergies, and even costly damage to your home, excess humidity is a serious problem that needs a quick fix. Get it with the newly redesigned Danby DDR70A2GP Dehumidifier. As part of the Danby Premiere line of residential dehumidifiers, this Energy Star dehumidifier extracts 70 pints of excess moisture per day from large spaces measuring up to 3,800 square feet. Ideal for large basements, great rooms, and other large areas around your home susceptible humidity problems, the DDR70A2GP is packed with user-friendly features that take the guesswork out of operation.
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.

Purchase the dehumidifier a la carte or choose our Danby DDR70A2GP Healthy Basement Package, a Sylvane exclusive, to get everything you need to solve humidity problems in your basement. The Healthy Basement Package includes the following accessories along with the Danby DDR70A2GP 70-Pint Dehumidifier:
Hartell External Condensate Pump
- Pumps 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 draining 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.
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.
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.
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.
