Sleeping Good
Aprilaire 1710 is a excellent unit for your basement if you live in the mountains where it is always damp I found this unit works just wonderfully. While doing research for a dehumidifier I was looking for something that was quiet and powerful. My basement is about 1500 sq feet which is great for company but cold and damp in the winter. The Aprilaire 1710 is portable but high capacity and no messy buckets. I found a winner with this unit. Thank you
Review by Mountain Woman / (Posted on 5/8/2015)
I was getting a jump on the season and started looking to replace my old dehumidifier. Up until now I have bought consumer models for large rooms but this time I wanted something more industrial that would last longer than a year or two. I saw the Aprilaire 1710 and though it was little more than I was thinking of spending but after adding up what I’ve spent over the last few years it should balance out. The auto restart is a great feature since I've noticed during the summer we occasionally have power issues and the recent storms that rolled through knocked out power for some people for days. The casters are great for this unit and it's more than large enough to keep my entire basement dry. I’m happy with the job it’s doing and look forward to many more years of service.

The Best Dehumidifer On The Market
I was a bit skeptical about purchasing the Aprilaire 1710A Dehumidifier. I have had 2 different dehumidifiers in our basement over the past 5 years. Our basement is very & musty smelling and the less expensive dehumidifiers lasted only about 2 years each. What a difference with the Aprilaire. Not only is my basement dry with no musty smell, we got a great price from achoo allergy the best price on the internet. It is a heavy, sturdy dehumidifier that gets the job done. I hope it lasts for years to come. I guess it's true that you get what you pay for. I would recommend this product to friends and family. I give it an A+.

Breathe Easy
We were having problems with high humidity dampness and breathing problems. Believe me when I tell you that the Aprilaire 1710A exceeded all our expectations about keeping our home dry and comfortable. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a problem with a damp cellar, mold, or breathing problems. Thank you Aprilaire.

Does what it''s supposed to do
I recently purchased one of these units. To date, I haven't had any problems with it, and our old basement is as dry as it's ever been in years. No more excessive moisture and no more smell! The lack of a hygrometer doesn't bother me. That was one of my initial concerns, but now it's not. The construction of this dehumidifier seems more "industrial" than other units I've had. I can honestly say it's done what it's supposed to do!

Impressed So Far
The Aprilaire 1710A seems well built, and within the first hour of use reduced my 900 sf basement from 75% to 65% relative humidity. I've had it about a month, and I hardly ever hear it run. It is keeping my basement now at 45% - 50%. Time will tell it if remains reliable, but is certainly better built than the two $275 dehumidifiers I've had die in four years.

Crawl Space Dehumidifier
My space is sealed and had a Honeywell Dehumidifier that lasted less than a year it was repaired with a new fan that broke one and half years latter a new fan was over $300 so I bought the 1710A because of the 5 year warranty. I had to put it on some blocks to get it high enough for water to drain out my PVC pipe plugged it in ran the test then set it to 3 or 4 my 2000 sq ft space was at 50% and 72 degrees the next day.

Outstanding Product - Maryville, TN
The quality and performance of this product is far superior to the dehumidifiers available in the local and box hardware stores. Installation was quick and simple--and the same is true for the "drying" process of our basement. I highly recommend this item. It's worth the money. Achoo Allergy was top notch as well.
Review by Wet Basement / (Posted on 5/8/2015)
I have only used this dehumidifier for a week, but it seems to work very well in my crawlspace. I have it set on 4 and it is keeping the humidity at about 50%. The only problem I had setting it up was initially I had it level. Even though I "primed" the drip pan and discharge with water which drained well, once the unit was operating all the condensate overflowed the drip pan instead of draining as it should. I had water everywhere! So I placed it on blocks and tilted it significantly toward the drain. Then it drained properly. The owners' manual did not say anything about placing it level or with a pitch. I also bought a pump to raise and move the condensate through the crawlspace wall to the outside.

Aprilaire 1710A Review
Outstanding dehumidifier. I am a co owner of a disaster restoration company and I have used many dehumidifiers for basement use. The Aprilaire 1710A is by far the best I have ever used.

Aprilaire 1710 A Crawlspace Dehumidifier Reviews
Aprilaire 1710 Dehumidifier

The Aprilaire 1710A Dehumidifier is a high-capacity, 90 pint whole basement or crawlspace unit. It is the latest, most reliable solution to relieve excessive humidity in your basement or larger areas throughout the home. This ultra-quiet, free standing dehumidifier provides 100% more capacity and 300% more efficiency than any leading portable dehumidifier.

What I like about the Aprilaire 1710A

The best feature of this dehumidifier is that it is portable and powerful.Steel construction lends itself to greater durability and use in crawlspaces, but casters make it easy to move. The water removal of 90 pints per day is under AHAM conditions but while testing in more humid conditions, that extraction rate will surpass the stated AHAM measurement.

An internal humidistat will automatically sense moisture levels to maintain optimal humidity levels and and control dampness, mildew, mold, fungi, dust mites and odors. The Aprilaire 1710 model operates down to 40° F and also features a replaceable air filter that provides some filtration of dirt, dust, and other large particles.

This model is actually fairly quiet while operating, and does NOT significantly add to your monthly power bill. It doesn't quite reach Energy Star qualifications but uses less power than many comparable models.

Something that makes the Aprilaire 1710 dehumidifier unique is that like all Aprilaire models, it is one of the very few dehumidifiers that is still made domestically.

Lastly, the 5 year warranty surpasses that offered by most other dehumidifier manufacturers.

What I did not like about the Aprilaire 1710A

As with all Aprilaire dehumidifiers, I wish it had a hygrometer on board rather than just a 15 position turn knob. The other drawback to this model is you must have a condensate drain line or floor drain nearby since the 1710A uses not bucket or condensate pump (just a simple P-trap with drain hose).

Overall, the Aprilaire 1710 A dehumidifier is a great buy for removing large amounts of moisture from your basement or crawlspace. The moisture extraction, usability, construction, and durability are all key features that set the Aprilaire 1710 well above other portable dehumidifiers.

Product Questions

My house is approx. 3000 sq. ft. I am installing this unit in the crawlspace which is approx. 4 ft in height. Is this unit big enough to do the job? I live in Tennessee.
Just an FYI....I purchased an Aprilaire 1710A from you for my unheated cinderblock basemant, your website lits the operating conditions as from 40 to 105F, the owners manual of the 1710A list the operating conditions as from 50 to 105F. Because the basement is unheated, I could possibly fall below the 50F operating recommendation. My unit is running great, but I think your spec. page should reflect the 50F rather than the 40F you have listed. I appreciate your fast and courteous service. Sincerely, Craig Wuennecke
