Frigidaire 50 PT Low Temp Basement Dehumidifier

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

On those hot summer days. When an air conditioner just isn't enough for you. Heat is just one factor that keeps you sweating during the hot summer months. What you need if the air conditioner isn't good enough is a dehumidifier. The Frigidaire 50 PT Low Temp Basement Dehumidifier, might be the dehumidifier you are looking for. The unit specs are as follows...

Dehumidifies 50 pints per day in a medium size area. It can run all the time if it is near a drain. The unit has a filter, which removes moisture and airborne particulates. Fully portable with casters. 17-pint container capacity. Level indicator signals when container is full. Fully functional electronic controls. 2 fan speeds, low-temperature operation, and is an Energy Star product. The unit costs under $200.00.

The unit can be stored just about anywhere. It can be stored in a garage, under a basement, and 1st-floor rooms - etc. The unit dehumidifies 50 pints daily. So that can easily take care of a downstairs basement or a large living room. The cost of the thing isn't expensive at all. Dehumidifiers usually cost over $60. The weight of the product is 43 lbs. Making it as heavy as a windowed air conditioner unit.

Benefits about dehumidifiers are, if you have asthma problems, they make it more comfy to breathe about. If you are the sweaty type of person. You will feel a lot better. Humidity can also foster more bacteria. Dehumidifiers aren't recommended in areas where the air is dry. Having too much dry air can cause dehydrating affects. Also poised to dry out one's skin.

If you don't have a dehumidifier, don't cause yourself too much concern. The use of these products in my opinion aren't necessary to have. I would only have one if it came down to really needing one. In concluding, living in the subtropics is where I'd have one.
