- 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!
- 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.
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 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.
