    I bought two, one for each home's basement and was thrilled with the first one. The second one was noisy beyond belief, but when I reported that to the company, they replaced the machine and it is wonderful. It is much quieter and I can no longer hear it on the second floor when it's in the basement.

    It is efficient, is absorbing lots of moisture, has dried the basement, has removed the damp "odor" found in basements, and works like a charm.
    I love that it is self-sustaining, in that, by attaching a hose, I do not have to empty the machine and if it gets too cold in the basement, it will defrost itself. It will also restart itself after a power outage, which is a plus.

    The size is easy to handle and it has made a world of difference in the living quality of the basement.

          Comments about PrimeAire PA7010E 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

          I had written about this product previously. The one I received was really loud. Sylvane replaced it free of charge. The new one is NICE and QUIET. They told me it would be like a fan on medium. I think it is even quieter than that. I'm especially pleased with how much water it pulls out of the air and the quietness. It does put out warm air. It isn't hot, but is definitely warm, which is a consideration if using in a hot area. However, I don't know of a machine that works so terrifically at it's purpose, is that quiet, and doesn't put out some small amount of heat. If there is....probably it's a lot more expensive. All in all, I'm very pleased.

          Replacement for dehumidifier that was recalled. Sales agent on phone was helpful but ordered via website. Bought 3 year warranty because brand was unknown. Noise is not a big problem because basement is used mostly for storage and for doing laundry.

          Comments about PrimeAire PA7010E 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

          Most reviews complain of the noise and heat from dehumidifiers. Not sure what is expected from a small fan moving large volumes of air over cooling coils to extract moisture. The PrimeAire is no louder than a box fan on medium speed. As for the warm air output, there is some during its cycling on/off. It does have a compressor which produces some heat and a de-icer to remove any ice that may form on the coils. All and all a very effective unit. Used in 1200 sq ft concrete walled basement to maintain 45 degrees humidity.

          Comments about PrimeAire PA7010E 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

          This is the second dehumidifier I bought from this company-one for each of my homes' basements and it has ended the dampness, freshened the air, and is easy to use.
          The loudness is a distinct disadvantage as the housing rumbles, but operationally, it is fine.
          We have rigged it, with a hose, to empty into a 50 gallon drum, in which a sump pump pumps the water out. It doesn't have to be checked and is a huge relief to not have to remember to empty the dehumidifier.

                  I am using this to dehumidify a large area - a workshop and a garage. it is very effective. I can feel the difference in the air. However, as others have commented, it does put out a lot of hot air. This is a large area and I can feel a noticeable difference in the temperature. I have a/c available in the area if I need it and I will certainly need it when I am working in the shop. I guess the good news is that I wont need to turn the heat on in the winter time.

                              I'm returning this product because it was very loud, too loud to function in the same room - or in the next room with door closed. Sylvane customer service has been great. They sent a paid return form, and are sending a replacement free of charge. You couldn't ask for more...as long as the new one is "like a fan on medium" as it is supposed to be. If that is how it turns out I'll be very pleased. The dehumidifier works like a charm otherwise.

                                    We needed a new dehumidifier as our old one bit the dust trying to keep up with a flooded basement. This one does its job very effectively, but it is noisy and heats the room in the process. I set it on automatic, but it never seems to turn itself off when the room has dried out. I like that is easy to move around if you need to as it is on wheels.
