For the most part, I like the Frigidaire Pint Dehumidifier. It gets really humid here in the summertime because we are right in the middle of a mountain range. In the summer, the mountains trap the moisture and can make an 88 degree day feel much more like a 93 degree day very easily. With this Frigidaire Pint Dehumidifier, I do not have to sweat like a pig any more! Now, if it is 80 degrees in my house, it actually feels like it is 80 degrees instead of 85! I could not be happier with the performance of this product. I do, however, think that the Frigidaire Pint Dehumidifier is quite unsightly. It really is a bit of an eye sore. If it was not so ugly, I think I would give it a ten. I do think you should try it though. I hope you will be as happy with this dehumidifier as we are! Effectiveness This dehumidifier is very effective. I do not have to worry anymore about my house being way too hot just because of the humidity! Design It is not pretty at all. It is an eye sore in my opinion.
