  • Product Overview

    Fight problem humidity and unhealthy mold growth the right way with the Sunpentown SD-71E 70-Pint Dehumidifier! The Sunpentown SD-71E extracts excess moisture from vulnerable areas in your home, including your basement, bedroom, kitchen, den, laundry room, and more. Offering continuous or auto dehumidification, the Sunpentown SD-71E maintains your perfect humidity level efficiently and safely. You'll put an end to moisture damage, mold infestations, damage to your belongings, and that uncomfortable muggy feeling. The Sunpentown SPT 70-Pint Dehumidifier removes 70 pints of damaging moisture per day and treats areas up to 550 square feet optimally. Its benefits can extend to an area as large at 1,200 square feet.

    Easy Automatic Humidity Control

    With the Sunpentown SD-71E Dehumidifier, maintaining your optimal humidity is easier than ever. Simply choose your desired humidity level using the onboard humidistat, select Auto operation, and let the dehumidifier do the work for you. The unit dehumidifies until your desired humidity level is reached. Then, the compressor and fan power down to save energy. You can also run the SD-71E dehumidifier continuously, for example, when you need to dehumidify a particularly humid spot with little downtime.

    Feature-Rich for Your Convenience

    The Sunpentown SD-71E 70-Pint Dehumidifier has all the features you need to take control of your home's humidity problems and manage them effectively. The 2-speed fan gives you your choice of dehumidifying speeds. A full bucket indicator with automatic shutoff lets you know when it's time to empty the reservoir and protects your home from damaging condensate spills. Take advantage of 2 draining methods, manual or continuous gravity draining, to suit the needs of your space. Plus, program the 24-hour timer to set a power on or shutoff time for your unit when you're not available. The SPT SD-71E Dehumidifier is packed with features and functions that take the headache out of operation.

    Additional Features

    • Electronic Controls - Choose your settings easily and precisely with the soft-touch electronic control panel.
    • Automatic Defrost - This dehumidifier operates successfully in temperatures down to 41 degrees F. However, if frost starts to build up internally, an automatic defrost function melts it quickly to reduce downtime.
    • Washable Air Filter - Clean your air and keep the dehumidifier running at peak efficiency with the onboard pre-filter. It's washable to help bring your maintenance costs down.
    • Automatic Restart - Following a power failure, the SD-71E automatically restarts using your previously programmed settings. This is a great feature to have when you'll be running your unit unattended.
    • Time Delay Protection for Compressor - A 3-minute time delay protects the compressor from unnecessary wear and tear as you start and shutoff the unit.
    • Quiet Operation - This Sunpentown dehumidifier is among the quietest dehumidifiers available, emitting only as much sound a refrigerator "hum."
    • Carrying Handle and Casters - Transport your dehumidifier easily from spot to spot with the recessed carrying handles and smooth-rolling casters.
    • Energy Star-Qualified - The SD-71E is Energy Star-qualified for budget-friendly operation.


    Offering automatic humidity control and a host of upgraded features, the Sunpentown SD-71E Dehumidifier gets problem humidity in your basement, den, bedroom, kitchen, laundry room, and more under control.

    What Customers Love

    • Set It and Forget It - A humidistat plus auto operation makes it easy to maintain your desired humidity level with no intervention.
    • Energy Star-Compliant - Energy Star-compliant dehumidifiers use about 15% less energy than non-Energy Star dehumidifiers. This can help reduce your energy bill.  

    Things to Consider

    • Pump Option - Add a condensate pump accessory when pump drainage would work better in your space. For example, you might need to pump condensate upward through a window.

        Comments about Sunpentown SPT 70-Pint Dehumidifier - SD-71E:

        We were told that the HVAC system in our house was installed without a plenum from which ducts run to all vents as is industry norms, but instead a larger duct running to the farthest vent, with shortest possible duct run from that larger duct's nearest point to each other vent (Thank you DR Horton!).

        The HVAC tech told us that this causes the unit to run more than necessary because there is not enough resistance to air flow, which the plenum would normally provide, to make the air move slow enough over the exchanger to take the humidity out of the air. He estimated this 6 year old system, in our Texas heat, would be lucky to get 4 more years due to this.

        We asked if taking more humidity out of the air via a dehumidifier would help, and were told it would help the unit not have to work as hard, so could extend its life, but no guarantees.

        We ordered on a Wed, were told it would be here the following Tue, and it was. Bought a 1400 SF rated unit for a very open 1800 SF house. Humidity has been brought down from 65 - 70% at initial installation and kept at 35%, going to 40% after going in and out a lot.

        Before, we ran the AC with temp set at 78. We now run it at 82 and it feels more comfortable (and cool) than 78 did without the dehumidification.
