Sunpentown SD-70E Dehumidifier Review

The Sunpentown SD-70E is a great new dehumidifier that will be sure to take care of your humidity needs. This unit is capable of removing up to 70 pints of water across a 24 hour period while covering areas up to 1000 square feet, depending on conditions. The unit is made by Sunpentown, which has a great reputation for making excellent quality and durable dehumidifiers.

This dehumidifier is portable, comes with castors, and can easily be moved around. This is ideal if you want to move it to different rooms, although with its powerful system and 70 pint capacity, it can easily cover fairly large sized areas.

This Sunpentown 70 Pint Dehumidifier also comes with the fantastic direct drain feature. With direct drain you are able to directly drain the dehumidifier’s water in a sump pit or floor drain. This lets the unit run continuously and saves you the time and hassle of continuously emptying the water reservoir. If you decide to use the reservoir instead, the reservoir bucket has a handle on it for ease of use. If using the reservoir the unit auto shuts off when it’s full, with an indicator letting you know to empty the reservoir.

The Sunpentown SD-70E has washable filters, which can save you quite a bit of money, compared to other units which you continuously have to buy filters for.

The Sunpentown SD-70E reviews are very limited so far. Only a few have been posted about this particular model, although so far it looks very promising. One of the reviewers noted that the SD-70E was extremely effective at removing moisture quickly. He said that he plugged in the unit and only after a short while started seeing a drastic difference in the humidity levels within his house. He also said that he was using his unit in a space near 1000 square feet in size, the most recommended for this unit; it effectively removed and controlled the humidity level to the desired amount.

The Sunpentown SD-70E is very new to the market and has almost no reviews. Although, looking through most of the Supentown reviews for all of their dehumidifiers its clear to see that this company makes great quality products, which are very reliable. It is also noted in most of the other Supentown dehumidifier reviews that their products will last for a long time and are not prone to breaking down. The Sunpentown 70 Pint Dehumidifier isn’t a proven unit yet although it looks very promising.
