How to Buy the Best 50 Pint Dehumidifier

How to Buy the Best 50 Pint Dehumidifier

1. Coverage Area

The size of the space that you will want to dehumidify with your 50-pint dehumidifier should be in your mind when picking up one to ensure you get something useful and optimal.

Most top-rated 50-pint dehumidifiers will provide a coverage area of between 1,000 and 5,000 square feet, and so you can be sure that there is a model for you regardless of your space.

For small to medium-size rooms, the 1,200 square feet coverage you get with the Friedrich D50BPA should be enough. But, for larger spaces, something that covers 4,500 square feet like the Tosot GDN45BA-A3EBA2B is preferable.

2. Tank Capacity

Like with any other dehumidifier size and type, you will need to consider the capacity of the tank on your 50-pint model.

A larger tank will be preferable as it will allow you to go for more extended periods without having to empty the tank. With a large tank capacity, you can be sure that your machine will have a long working time

A typical, 50-pint dehumidifier will have a tank capacity of anywhere from 0.8 to 2 gallons. If you live in high humid areas, a model with the larger 2-gallon tank like the Friedrich D50BPA will be more appropriate.

3. Speed Settings

You need a dehumidifier that will allow you to change the speed to suit the prevailing condition or even your preferences.

Hence, a good model should include at least a high and low-speed setting. But, if it has more speeds options like high, medium, and low or even a few more than this, it will be even more ideal.

Still, on the speed settings, you will need to make sure that the machine has an easy to use control panel to allow you to change the speed quickly.

4. Drainage Option

If you are using your 50-pint dehumidifier in areas with high humidity levels, you will need to empty the tank more often as it will fill up super-fast.

But, the good news is that there is an easy way to avoid all this. And this is by investing in a machine that has a draining option.

These machines will have a drain hose outlet to allow you to connect it to your plumbing system so that the water drains as it is extracted from the air and will not collect in the tank.

5. Working Time

The working time of a dehumidifier is how long it can run continuously. Most of these machines will have a 1 to 24 hours timer, which means the maximum continuous working time is 24 hours.

24-hour working time should be more than enough for most spaces in the house, including living rooms, bedrooms and baby nursery.

For a basement, you might need something that runs continuously or at least for longer than 24 hours. In such instances, a machine with a drain option will be perfect as the tank capacity will not dictate the working time.

6. Maintenance

Maintaining your 50-pint dehumidifier will involve removing and emptying the tank once it is full, cleaning the filters if they are reusable or changing them for the disposable types, and wiping down the machine.

With that in mind, a machine with an easily removable tank and filter and those that have a slick surface that is easy to wipe down and with no hard to reach spaces will be the easiest to maintain.

7. Noise Level

Because these dehumidifiers have a fan, you can be sure that they will make some sound when in operation as the fan rotates.

However, the level of noise will vary from one model to the other, as some brands make use of exclusive technologies to make their units run without making too much noise.

Regardless of the noise-suppressing technology used, you should make sure the 50-pint dehumidifier you choose keeps the noise level below 60 dB to ensure it will run quietly enough.

Conclusion 

For larger spaces and areas with higher humidity levels to deal with, you need to have the best 50-pint dehumidifier. And now finding that perfect model for you only requires you to choose one from our detailed reviews.

However, the HomeLabs HME020031N takes our top overall spot as it has a broader coverage and is overall a more efficient machine that will include an easy to use control panel and smart functions like auto-restart.

But, if you prefer something a little more affordable that will still provide a decent coverage area, go for the Keystone KSTAD50B.
