I bought one of these for my very humid North Carolina beach home. My basement is about 2800 SF divided into a main room and a garage. In the garage, we use the smaller 70-pint version of this same unit, leaving the larger unit for the main area. So far, both units have exceeded my expectations.
Although it comes in a large, cumbersome package, it's actually easy to unpack and setup. The most challenging part - and it's really not a big deal - is getting the casters on the unit. There's also the matter of drainage...95 pints a day is a lot of water - you really need a drain and some plumbing for a unit this size. I'd recommend a condensate pump - I use one of the Little Giant units , and the whole setup works perfectly.
I have the dehumifier connected to my home automation system, and there are several benefits. For one, I have a few humidity sensors scattered around my basement, and this gives me a much better picture of humidity conditions. The Fridgidaire has a built in humidity meter, but it reports the humidity in the vicinity of the unit - a very different level than found several feet away. Many times, the unit will report 40%, but my humidity meter at the edge of my basement is in the mid-60s.
The other thing I get from my home automation system is very accurate energy consumption data. In operation on the high setting, this unit draws 628 watts. In my area, electricity is 9.69 cents per KWH, so operating continuously, this unit costs $44 per month in electricity, not including the condensate pump.
The real story is the performance. When I first turned on the unit, humidity was about 90% - downright swampy. Within two days, humidity dropped to mid-50s, and then 40's after a week. Much better than I thought I could get from one of these portable units. To top it off, the unit is quiet (quieter than the 70-pint version) and has easy to operate controls. Indeed, this unit in every way seems superior to its 70-pint cousin
