Description of Fral FDK70 Dehumidifiers
Europe's top rated dehumidifier is now available in the United Stated; sold exclusively through AllergyBuyersClub.com. The Fral FDK70 dehumidifier is built to withstand low temperature environments from basements to crawlspaces. The FDK70 dehumidifier features a powerful 380 CFM fan system and is capable of removing up to 13 gallons of moisture per day in spaces up 2,000 square feet. From the compressor to the sensors, only the best, high quality materials and components have been utilized to build the FDK Series dehumidifiers. A digital control panel allows you to maintain your desired relative humidity level in 1% increments. We recommend setting the humidistat between 45 and 50% to ensure that you maintain a humidity level that is inhospitable for mold and mildew growth. For low temperature environments, the FDK70 features a sophisticated hot-gas defrost system. This defrost system allows operation in temperatures as low as 33°F, making this dehumidifier ideal for unheated environments, be it a basement or a crawlspace or some other type of environment. Low energy consumption at just 650 watts, auto-restart, built-in carrying handles and quiet 46 decibel (db(A))operation are synonymous with the Fral brand. The drainage line connects to a standard garden hose for easy water transfer to a floor drain or pump. Includes a 5-year warranty on the sealed refrigerant system.
When only the best will do, customers choose Fral dehumidifiers for powerful, reliable dehumidification.

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.
