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:

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.

Cons

  • Very loud

Best Uses

  • Empty Cellar Dampness
  • Keeps A Constant Tempertu
  • Removes Musty Smell

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.

          Comments about PrimeAire PA7010E 70 Pint 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.

                                The delivery of this product was prompt & damage free. We use this in the finished lower level of our home which includes a large family room, office & laundry room. While it does the job as far as keeping that musty smell out, the heat it throws by far negates the purpose of the unit. Our lower level was typically the coolest area of our home but with the dehumidifier running, it is now the hottest even with the central air on. The heat from it is unbelievable!!! Have had it about 2 weeks but seriously considering returning it for another unit as we are afraid the heat will damage our electronics in those rooms.

                                Delivered on time without any damage to the unit. I used this product after a flood we had in the basement. It worked well to help dry out the area. I had it drain into a pump that automatically pumped the condensate into a sink. The timer is a little confusing and I am sure the manufacturer could make it easier to use. You can set both the start time and the stop time using two different processes.
