I recently purchased this awesome dehumidifier and the result is incredible. Believe me, it’s a steal to get this room dehumidifier at such a low price. If you are looking for an expensive 70-pint dehumidifier then give a second thought. When you buy this dehumidifier you will not need to sacrifice on functionality and features.

Keystone KSTAD70B Review

The Keystone KSTAD70B is a superb minimal effort dehumidifier compared to a number of the more costly 70-pint dehumidifiers available.

Major Advantages

  • Easy to use electronic controls with LED display
  • Inclusion of defrost mode (even at a low price product)
  • Energy efficient
  • Full bucket alert with automatic shutoff
  • Auto restart function
  • Runs quietly

Major Disadvantages

  • Installation of separate adapter needed for gravity drainage
  • Low LED display quality

Extremely Quiet

This unit is extremely quiet even being a low price product. In vitality proficiency, it is similarly skillful. This unit is exceptionally vitality effective, truth be told, the most vitality productive dehumidifiers accessible at this class and range.

The Keystone was the calmest 70-pint dehumidifier that depleted through the side of the unit enabling you to effectively coordinate this clamor far from you.

Efficient in Removing Moisture

This dehumidifier removes up to 70 pints of moisture very effectively. What I found, though it is more efficient in achieving low levels of moisture from high levels of humidity. But it is less effective to reach a moderate level of humidity quickly from not very high moisture level.

This unit can work well in a room up to 4500 square feet.

The Hygrometer

In its class of size, the hygrometer accuracy of Keystone is in the average range with measuring capacity in the range of 2% to 3% of the real humidity of the room.

The good thing is it takes into consideration more exact control as it peruses humidity levels in 1% increase contrasted with numerous different brands offering a reading limit of 5% increase only.

Water Tank Durability

There is no brace in the water tank of Keystone. Therefore, compared to the other brands it may look slightly more flimsy. Contrasted with the plastic utilized for a portion of the more costly units, the plastic shape of the tank was quite more slender. I recommend you put a hand under the tank while conveying the tank to discard the condensate.

Weight and Portability

Among the 70-pint Dehumidifiers, the KSTAD70B was one of the lightest. As of now specified in regards to the water tank, it suggests the utilization of lighter parts in the dehumidifier development, while this is extraordinary for convenience and portability.

Consumer Feedback

I have gone through a lot of consumer feedback that indicates the durability of this unit. Most of the customers who used it for months have given positive reviews. I have purchased it based on those reviews and I am very happy with my decision of purchasing this dehumidifier.

Even though this dehumidifier is comparatively new it received less 1% negative review from the customers. This is extremely impressive considering Keystone is not at all a known or established brand. This speaks for the quality of the unit it delivered.

Display and Other Features

The Humidistat can be set with a 5% increase in preferred humidity level. One of the drawbacks of this dehumidifier is its LED display though. It has little room, and only 2 digits can be placed in it. This is why the 24-hour timer settings can be done in increments of 30 minutes and a maximum running time of 10 hours.

It has 2 fan speed level known as normal and turbo (instead of low and high) along with a continuous mode setting.

Its range of operating temperature is 41° - 95° Fahrenheit and you can set a preferred humidity level as high as 85% to as low as 35%.

Some Issues

The main admonition here is that contrasted with the best debilitating units you should be more watchful where you put this unit. Warm and dry air is exhausted from this dehumidifier that draws in dampness. You will be restricting the viability of this dehumidifier operation by debilitating this warm and dry air far from the room center.

The most prominent drawback of this model is its drainage system though, which depends on an adapter to have gravity drainage with no built in pump.

Another problem is the small water tank capacity (10.4-pint) and not so clear manual supplied. The manual even has some spelling mistakes.

Additional Features

It also has some additional features like display of temperature; defrost option (even at its low price tag) and clean filter alert light.

Overall the unit is extremely user-friendly with the simplest of user operations. The LED as I already mentioned can be called standard at the best. Removing the filter is very easy in this dehumidifier. At a lower price range, this is a great dehumidifier with a decent look as well.
