  • Product Overview

    Take control of the humidity in your home with the Friedrich D70BP Dehumidifier. This 70-pint dehumidifier features a built-in condensate pump and low-temperature operation. The Friedrich D70BP works great as a basement dehumidifier or as a portable dehumidifier for humidity control in various rooms. Key features include multiple draining methods, easy digital controls, adjustable humidity control, automatic defrost, and much more. 

    Three Draining Methods

    The Friedrich D70BP 70-Pint Dehumidifier has three methods for draining collected moisture. The first option allows you to manually drain the water condensate bucket. The removable drain bucket holds 16.2 pints of water and easily pulls out from the front of the dehumidifier for simple drainage.

    To avoid having to constantly empty the drain bucket manually, you can take advantage of the continuous drain method or use the built-in condensate pump. A drain hose is included with the dehumidifier for continuous drain operation. The drain hose connects to the back of the dehumidifier and must be placed horizontally so collected moisture can be gravity drained. Additionally, you can pump excess water to another location up to 15 feet away from the dehumidifier using the internal condensate pump.

    User-Friendly Controls with Digital Display

    The Friedrich D70BP 70-Pint Dehumidifier features user-friendly electronic controls and digital display, making it simple to use and easy to operate. Monitor your room temperature and room humidity with ease using the two digital display screens on the control panel. The first display screen shows the current room temperature during normal operation and it displays the timer setting when the timer button is pressed. The second digital screen displays the relative humidity during normal operation and it shows your desired humidity level when you adjust the humidity setting.

    Helpful Indicators and Automatic Defrost

    In addition to easy-to-understand controls, the Friedrich 70-Pint Dehumidifier features convenient indicators for easy maintenance and optimum performance. The bucket full indicator will illuminate on the display panel when the water condensate bucket is full. To prevent damage to your dehumidifier or an overflow of water in your home, the unit will automatically shut down until the drain bucket is emptied and properly replaced.

    The Friedrich D70BP 70-Pint Dehumidifier also features automatic defrost mode, which is very beneficial for low-temperature operation. When the dehumidifier is operating in temperatures below 41 degrees Fahrenheit, frost can begin to build up on the evaporator coils. To keep the dehumidifier running normally and efficiently, the defrost indicator will illuminate and the system will automatically start the defrost cycle.

    Additional Highlights

    • Easy Mobility: Four rolling casters and two side-grip carry handles make it easy to transport this portable dehumidifier from room to room.
    • Reusable Filter: The Friedrich 70-Pint D70BP Dehumidifier includes a washable air filter that easily slides out of the front panel.
    • Electronic Controls: The digital screens display the timer and temperature settings, so you can monitor the humidity level in your space and maintain a comfortable room temperature.
    • Temperature Selector: This Friedrich dehumidifier allows you to choose between Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature display.
    • Multiple Fan Speeds: This portable dehumidifier is equipped with a two-speed fan.
    • Adjustable Humidity: A built-in humidistat allows you to set your ideal humidity level from 30% to 90% relative humidity in increments of 5%.

    Summary

    The Friedrich D70BP 70-Pint Dehumidifier eliminates damaging excess humidity in basements and other rooms and does it conveniently with a range of user-friendly features.

    What Customers Love

    • Easy Adjustable Humidity - Set your desired humidity and the dehumidifier maintains that level without intervention. 
    • 3 Draining Methods - Drain the dehumidifier how you like. Choose from manual, gravity, or pump draining to suit the needs of your space. 

    Things To Consider

    • Some Noise on High - Customers report that the unit is a bit loud on high. You may want to consider running it on low when you're in the room and switching it to a higher speed (if needed) when you exit.

    I had a very damp basement over the summer due to an unusually humid season and a preference for not running the household air conditioner. Over time, a musty odor developed in my unfinished basement so I decided to research an appropriate dehumidifier. Reliability and capacity were my two primary concerns given the area to be conditioned is just under 1400 square feet. Affordability was also a concern.

    After many hours of research on the web, I was somewhat disappointed with the reported reliability and features of the units I deemed affordable. As I was about to compromise on something that I wasn't totally satisfied with, I came across the Friedrich D70BP at Sylvane. The numbers seemed to meet my criteria and, after further review of available customer feedback, I couldn't find any real negatives and proceeded with the order.

    Using the available free ground shipping offered by Sylvane, the unit arrived in great shape and sooner than I expected. At approximately 50 lbs, it is a solid, and from all appearances, well built piece of equipment. I had originally planned to use the gravity fed drain hose option rather than the built-in condensation drain pump. Upon inspection, the supplied hose for the passive drainage was just too short for my application. I did end up using the supplied 15 foot tubing in conjunction with the built-in condensation pump. This combination works very well and without issue.

    Within the first few hours of operation, the D70BP brought the basement humidity down from 73% to approximately 58%. Over the next three days the desired 45% was achieved and the unit began cycling off and on as expected. Even on the high fan setting, the dehumidifier produces less noise than a whole-basement air cleaner that I once had running, so, this is not an issue for me.

    The only negative so far is the inaccurate relative humidity indicated on the D70BP's digital display. While the temperature is accurate, the reported humidity is somewhat high. It's easy enough to get around this by using an independent humidity display somewhere in the room. Once you have an accurate reading, you can then set the D70BP's desired level relative to what it is displaying. Overall, not a major concern.

    Time will test the unit's overall reliability, but so far it has delivered as advertised!

    This was purchased to replace a recalled unit for use in the workshop. It does a great job of maintaining a constant humidity in the shop. However, the design could use some inprovement. The air discharge is straight up and with the unit located in a corner of the shop the air went straight up, hit the ceiling, and came back down in the same area causing frequent cycling. I added a cardboard deflector to the top to send the air out into the shop to get better circulation. The most annoying problem is how often it cycles on and off. I can understand that it needs to sample the air every so often, but it would seem that only the fan would be needed to accomplish this. However, every time it cycles,an ammeter inline shows that full current is drawn on every start which means that the compressor cycles every time with full inrush current being drawn every time. Not very energy efficient. Not sure I would buy another one.

    Comments about Friedrich D70BP Dehumidifier:

    I like the automatic system that pumps water out when the bucket fills, but the system seems to work at times, and then it conks out. I have to check it too often, which is exactly what I didn't want to do. I have set it up in a basement which has only outside access, so slogging through New England snow to check on whether the dehumidifier is working is a nuisance. Can't really say how loud it is, but if the unit were completely dependable the design and features would be perfect.

                This unit cycles on, then off, then on, then off repeatedly. It's as if the humidistat is placed at the rear of the unit where the treated air is exhausted. Therefore, the unit senses high humidity and turns on, then within seconds senses lower humidity and turns off, then higher again, etc. It is difficult to imagine that the unit ever brings the room to the humidity desired, or that it is energy efficient.
