One of the best ways to find the best dehumidifier for you is by reading reviews, and that is why the Dehumidifier Critic provides reviews for you such as this review of the Keystone KSTAD70B dehumidifier. Discovering the best dehumidifier for your home or office can offer many benefits. The obvious benefit of a dehumidifier is making the general environment more pleasant and comfortable by removing moisture in the air. However, another significant benefit is reducing allergen levels and reducing mildew as well as mold. This not only translates into great health benefits, but it can also save a significant amount of money as well.
With that, here is our review of the Keystone KSTAD70B:
The unit comes standard with durable caster wheels and weighs in at just over 43 pounds. For a larger unit with 70-pint removal capacity, it is relatively lightweight and easy to move from one location to another.
Full Bucket Automatic Alert and Shut-off
The Keystone KSTAD70B includes a full bucket automatic alert system that tells owners when it is time to empty the water bucket. Additionally, the unit will automatically shut-off when the bucket is near full capacity.
Simple User Controls
The top-side located controls have an easy 4 button layout with simple up/down arrow keys to control timer settings. This helps to remove any confusion concerning how to operate the unit.
Continuous Drainage Requires an Additional Adapter
While it is not a huge downside, not including an adapter that allows users to take advantage of the continuous drainage feature right out of the box is inconvenient, and adds an additional expense for any user that wants to take advantage of that feature.
- Easy Portability
- Easy Navigation of User Controls
- Automatic Bucket Full Alert
- Auto Shut-off Controls
- No Learning Curve to Operate
- Easy Filter Access
This Keystone 70-pint unit comes with a nice range of features that make daily operation simple, even for those users who are technology challenged. There is zero learning time involved trying to figure out how to operate the unit as its simple 4 button layout is very easy to figure out. The automatic shut-off feature when the water bucket is almost full adds convenience and helps avoid cleaning up messes.
The unit is Energy Star Certified helping you save money on expensive electric bills and comes with an easy maintenance filter with no hassle access panel. Perhaps one of the most important points of consideration with this unit is the price point, which comes in at under $200 making it affordable for most everyone.
This Keystone KSTAD70B 70-pint unit makes a lot of best dehumidifier lists due to the lower than average price point. It does come with an acceptable list of features and offers ownership convenience with its automatic alert and settings capabilities. However, it is not overly impressive in the noise level category, feature category or performance category. It rates fair to good in almost all categories and offers a nice value with an affordable price. We don’t have anything negative to say about the unit, but it is probably a shorter term option for those who are looking to save a few dollars on their initial dehumidifier purchase.
