Asked by: LPSinSCS
It takes 30 minutes of continuous operation for the LG PuriCare™ 70 Pint Dehumidifier, Model # UD701KOG3 to reach the desired humidity level the first time the product is used. After 23 hours of continuous operation, the red Safety Standby light turns on for one hour and the fan and compressor shut off to prevent product malfunction.

what size basement will this dehumidifier work in?

Asked by: JoshfromNJ
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG PuriCare Dehumidifier, Model # UD701KOG3 will remove 70 pints of moisture per day and has a low CFM of 141.3 and a High CFM of 176.6 (units are cubic feet per minute) For dehumidifiers, CFM is important because moisture can only be extracted from air that can be moved through the dehumidifier. Simply put, if your dehumidifier cannot move any air (CFM = 0), then it cannot extract any moisture. To determine the proper room size, you will need to measure the cubic footage of that room (i.e multiplying the length x width x height) and determine its humidity level. The best way to determine its humidity level is to purchase an inexpensive hygrometer (an inexpensive device that can measure the relative humidity) which can be purchased from any retail store that specializes in home repair and will provide you with the percentage of humidity that resides in a specific room or area. If you do not have access to a hygrometer, you can use the specific characteristics of the room to determine its humidity levels. Then you will need to multiply the cubic feet you calculated earlier by the ACH and divide the result by the number 60. For moderately damp conditions, you will need dehumidifiers that can extract 10 pints (4.73 liters) of water within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). For every additional 500 square feet (46.45 square meters), add 4 pints (1.89 liters). For example, for rooms that are 1500 square feet (139.35 square meters), you will need a dehumidifier that can extract 18 pints (8.51 liters) of water. For very damp conditions, buy dehumidifiers that can extract 12 pints (5.67 liters) of water within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). For every extra 500 square feet (46.45 square meters), add 5 pints (2.36 liters). For wet conditions, choose dehumidifiers that can collect 14 pints (6.62 liters) of water within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). Add 6 pints (2.83 liters) for every additional 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). For extremely wet humidity conditions, buy dehumidifiers that extract 16 pints (7.57 liters) of water from the air within 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). Add 7 pints (3.31 liters) for every extra 500 square feet (46.45 square meters). If your CFM levels are much higher than the CFM levels supported by dehumidifiers you see for purchase, you may need to buy multiple units to properly dehumidify your space. If your CFM levels fall between a range of CFM levels supported by dehumidifiers, you may want to buy a unit with a higher CFM than what you need and run it less often...^IFV If the room is extremely wet and contains standing water or puddles of water, the humidity will be between 90 and 100 percent and is considered "extremely wet." If the room smells and feels wet and contains visible mold, mildew, leaks, and water stains, the humidity level will be between 80 and 90 percent and is classified as "wet." If the room feels very damp and you can clearly smell mold and mildew, the humidity levels will be between 70 and 80 percent and is known as "very damp." You may or may not see visible water stains on walls and on the floor. If the room only smells musty in damp or humid weather, the relative humidity will be between 60 and 70 percent and is considered "moderately damp." From that, you can then determine your air changes per hour (ACH) to calculate the airflow needed to properly dehumidify your room. If your humidity level is extremely wet or between 90 and 100 percent, your ACH will have a value of "6." If your humidity level is considered "wet" or between 80 and 90 percent, your ACH will be a value of "5." When your humidity in the room is considered to be "very damp" and falls between 70 and 80 percent, your ACH will have the value of "4." Moderately damp humidity levels that fall between 60 and 70 percent will have an ACH value of "3." After you have
