"Mind you, I have used this Fral FDK100 dehumidifier for about 2 weeks, so it is hard for me to rate RELIABILITY. Only time will tell. Delivery was very fast and the dehumidifier was double packaged which was nice. I installed it the same day using dedicated 110V (not necessary) and condensate pump...."

Each year, during the late Fall once the outdoor temperatures consistently remain lower than the temperature in the space being dehumidified, we recommend turning the dehumidifier off until warmer temperatures return in the Spring. For instance, in the Northeast most basements do not need a dehumidifier running after November 30th and can remain off until approximately April 30th. These dates will vary according to region but are a reasonable guide for operational need in most areas.
