Here Are The Top 10 Best 50-pint Dehumidifiers 2019

Alphachooser's list showing the newest 50-pint dehumidifiers includes only dehumidifiers that obey to these criteria:

  • 50-pint dehumidifiers are suitable for small basements or homes with less than 3000 total square feet if humidity conditions are moderate (non-extreme dampness or musty smell). For larger basements or higher humidity levels, you should preferably check out our list of the best 70-pint dehumidifiers, if not our top 95-pint dehumidifiers list
  • This list chooses the best 50-pint dehumidifiers by basing itself on user reviews from multiple sources and a set of sorting formulas of our own (See how we rank items for more details).
  • Specs provided on this page obviously omit the pint-per-day rating, since it always the same 50 pints... For full specs, click on each specific item.

Sitting right between its 30-pint and 70-pint siblings, both of which are also featured here on AlphaChooser, the TOSOT GDN50BA-A3EBA2B is a 50 pint dehumidifier that is best known for its efficiency and quiet operation, at least as far as the 254 user reviews we sampled are concerned. A certain user even gave it a perfect 5-star rating (Its average user rating was 4.5 stars at the time of writing), noting that the noise it makes is not as intrusive as those of some tantamount 50-pint models. A couple other buyers also appreciated its apparently convenient design, while another one enthusiastically said that it works like a dream . One happy buyer also said that this TOSOT model is one of the best 50-pint dehumidifiers available for its price -- it was pegged at roughly $250 at the time of writing.

Not everyone was pleased with the GDN50BA-A3EBA2B, though, although, as of this write-up, its 1-star review ratio stood at a measly 4 percent only. One complainant talked about receiving a unit that did an excellent job before falling apart after just a few months, while another said they were disappointed that it does not quite cover a 4000-square-feet area as advertised. Several more grumbled about not being able to find the right hose to connect or that it was a tad too noisy and that it puts off some excessive heat.

Nevertheless, our shopping algorithm, which scoured our sources and sampled a total of 39663 reviews for 50-pint dehumidifiers, considers the TOSOT GDN50BA-A3EBA2B as Alphachooser's best 50-pint dehumidifier 2019 (Learn how we rank items), consequently giving it a confidence level of 98 (More on confidence levels).

The hOmeLabs HME020006N is a 50-pint dehumidifier that, according to most of its 1665 reviewers, is one of the best ones out there when it comes to aesthetics, with one happy buyer describing its looks as sleek and its actual dehumidifying performance as great . Another user even says that it feels sturdily-built on top of having an eye-pleasing design. By the way, it hit the market with a 70-pint big brother that's also featured here at AlphaChooser. Its 1.59-gallon water bucket, which is apparently relatively easy to remove and dump, also received positive feedback from a good number of buyers.

On a different note, one particular buyer mentioned that this 4.5-star hOmeLabs model managed to dry an entire large sheet metal shop, while another user was delighted to share that this unit takes a mere 5 minutes to drag the humidity level down from 80 percent to only 50 percent, having it running on a hallway right next to the bathroom. Several other users also noticed that it runs pretty quietly and that it does the job well without inflating the electricity bill all that much.

On the other hand, some of its critical reviewers complained about units that only worked well for a few weeks. A couple of others even claim that the units they received do nothing but put out some unbearable heat. However, with its negative reviews representing a mere 4 percent of its total review count as we were writing this, it's probably best to take these comments with a grain of salt.

In any case, our automated review sampler, which aggregated a total of 39663 user reviews for 50-pint dehumidifiers, figured out that the hOmeLabs HME020006N is certainly one of the top 10 50-pint units out there today, particularly, Alphachooser's second best 50-pint dehumidifier 2019.

Released alongside a more-powerful 70-pint big brother and a 30-pint little brother, both of which are also featured here at AlphaChooser, the Frigidaire FFAD5033R1 is a middle child with an aggregated star rating of 4 stars after 12773 reviews. It comes with a 1.64-gallon water tank, which, according to some users, needs to be emptied 2-4 times per day, although that all depends on how moist the air is to begin with. For those who want to have it running continuously, though, this freestanding 50-pint dehumidifier supports gravity draining -- when placed near a suitable drain, of course.

One of its defining qualities is its ability to remove bacteria and allergens out of the air on top of its actual dehumidifying performance, which saved one particular reviewer money that would have been spent on medicine for sinus problems . Additionally, despite having a 35 percent claimed minimum humidity rating, one buyer reports that the FFAD5033R1 dragged the unbearable 80-90 percent humidity level down gradually until reaching just 30 percent on the third day. This portable (It comes with caster wheels) dehumidifier, like many others, comes with an electronic control panel, a digital humidity readout, and a 24-hour on/off timer.

Most complaints (although there weren't a lot as of this review) against the FFAD5033R1 involve units that display the dreaded F0 error code, with one user mentioning that he owns five units, but four of them no longer function. A few others unhappy buyers gave it a 1-star rating, noting that the units they got either malfunctioned intermittently or stopped working altogether within the first year of operation.

At the end of the day, however, our review-crawling algorithm, which rummaged through a grand total of 39663 reviews for 50-pint dehumidifiers, ascertained that the Frigidaire FFAD5033R1 is an Alphachooser good choice, consequently sitting alongside the top 10 dehumidifiers in this category.

Designed for home spaces of roughly 3000 square feet, the Keystone KSTAD50B is a 4-star 50-pint dehumidifier that's best known for its ability to do some serious dehumidifying work as well as for successfully clearing rooms of musty smells. In fact, a lot of its 2191 reviewers loved it solely for its smooth operation, with one user saying that it managed to drag the room's ambient humidity level from 89 percent down to only 55 percent within 8 hours, adding that the KSTAD50B has maintained a comfortable 45 percent humidity level since . Seeing that it comes with a mere 6.4-pint or 0.8-gallon water tank (Many other 50-pt dehumidifiers presented here at AlphaChooser have tanks that store around 1.5-2 gallons of water), its continuous draining option is highly welcome. In general, users seem to agree that its drain hose setup is well-designed to avoid spills and leaks, but there were a few who grumbled about it leaking while in use. For those who don't mind emptying the water bucket themselves, though, the KSTAD50B is equipped with a full-bucket alert system. It also comes with a typical auto-defrost function and a removable mesh filter.

For the most part, its negative feedback involves unsurprising complaints about its noise level, with one buyer saying that it puts out a horrendous noise, while another says that it constantly makes an annoying high-pitched sound -- some satisfied buyers note that it runs quietly, however, so the aforementioned user anecdotes are by no means conclusive. A few other unimpressed buyers say that their KSTAD50B units broke within the first year of operation, while a couple of others had to deal with the dreaded EC code.

In any case, our review-crawling algorithm, which weaved its way through 39663 reviews for 50-pint dehumidifiers, says that the Keystone KSTAD50B is a solid choice, being an Alphachooser good choice and, consequently, one of the top 10 models in this particular dehumidifier category.

The Honeywell DH50W is a portable (Caster wheels help it move around) 50-pint dehumidifier that scores an average rating of 4 stars after 440 reviews. As of this AlphaChooser write-up, most of its positive feedback revolved around its ability not just to suck moisture out of the air, which, according to many users, it does with ease, but also to rid it of dust and foul odors -- one particular user mentioned that the room smelled way better after just a couple of days . Many buyers also love its apparently easy-to-clean filter and easy-to-read control panel. Moreover, just like its 45- and 70-pint siblings, its water tank comes with a handle and bottom guides for avoiding spills and making sure that it is seated properly. Its 30 percent claimed minimum humidity sounds appreciable as well, since several of its 50-pint rivals only go as low as 35 percent.

Speaking of humidity, a couple of complaints about the DH50W mention that its inbuilt humidity meter is off by roughly 10 percent -- one user recommended buying a standalone humidistat for a more accurate reading. A good number of its reviewers also grumbled about its continuous draining setup being rather leaky, a grievance that's often accompanied by usual quibbles about operational noise -- a certain user even said that its noise rivaled that of a jet plane -- though we've yet to find a quiet dehumidifier, put aside thermoelectric ones (for which we have a best of list too, by the way). A few other unhappy buyers also complained about its excessive heat output, at least compared to those of units that it replaced, but even those reviewers agree that the DH50W does the job, as far as actual dehumidifying is concerned.

So, with the help of our automated review crawler, which evaluated a grand total of 39663 reviews for dehumidifiers of this kind, we can confidently say that the Honeywell DH50W is not quite the top dog among 50-pt dehumidifiers, but it's still one of the top 10 units in its category, being an Alphachooser good choice.

    RCA's RDH505 is a relatively small dehumidifier (50 pint) designed to dry rooms of up to 3000 square feet. Like many of its rivals in this category, it comes with a top-mounted electronic control panel, 2 fans speeds, and an auto-restart feature that enables it to retain the most-recent settings and turn back on automatically after power outages. Though some of its reviewers found its 1.5-gallon water tank rather small, and thus, meant frequent trips to empty the bucket manually, it sounds rather large when compared to those of plenty of other 50-pint dehumidifiers found here at AlphaChooser -- some don't even reach a full 1-gallon tank capacity. Its water bucket handle also makes emptying the it a tad more convenient for some users, but it also comes with a drain hose connector for continuous operation. This 4-star unit rolls on caster wheels for portability.

    Many of its 117 reviewers praised the RDH505 for successfully clearing the air of foul pet smells and molds, which proves particularly convenient for those with allergies or sinus problems. Some also liked its actual dehumidifying performance, with a couple of users describing it as a beast and a champ respectively. Although some buyers consider it to be fairly quiet, several others complained that it runs very loud, particularly with regards to its fans. Always keep in mind that dehumidifiers do tend to make noise and that noise tolerance is obviously subjective. One particular unsatisfied buyer reported that the RDH505 unit he received took 10-15 minutes to power back up after a humidity cycle, which sounds like a pretty long wait. At the end of the day, though, the RDH505's positive reviews overpowered the negative ones, with its 1-star ratings making up a mere 8 percent of its total review count as of this write-up.

    All said, our automated review crawler, which examined a total of 39663 reviews for 50-pint dehumidifiers from numerous sources, considers the RCA RDH505 as a solid choice, being an Alphachooser good choice and, subsequently, one of the top 10 units in this category.

      The DeLonghi DD50PE is the 50-pint little brother of the 70-pint DeLonghi DD70PE, which is also listed here at AlphaChooser. It comes with a sizable 1.59-gallon water tank (12.7 pints). This 50-pint dehumidifier offers three ways of emptying its water bucket. First, users can opt to empty its transparent tank manually -- it is equipped with a handle and an alarm system for when the tank fills up. The second option is passive downward draining using a 3-feet hose, while the third, and the one preferred by most of its reviewers, is its pump feature that enables vertical draining into sinks or outside windows near the garden.

      Apart from its pump feature, which, by the way, can be setup with a 16-feet hose, users also loved this (rating temporarily unavailable)-star unit's actual dehumidifying performance and build quality, with one certain buyer saying that it easily brought the humidity percentage in their damp basement from the high 70s to the low 40s. Another user reported just about the same, although more specifically, saying that the DD50PE managed to drag the 71 percent humidity level down to only 40 percent within the first 36 hours of operation. Another buyer was pleased that the DD50PE prevented mold buildups and nasty smells within their 38-feet boat.

      Not everyone is happy about the DD50PE, though, with some buyers talking about units that broke down within only a couple of years, while a few others grumbled about pump setups that either never worked or leaked water all over the floor -- an unfortunately common but rare problem that seems to equally plague random units of pretty much all dehumidifier models, a matter of chance, maybe. Still, with its positive reviews overpowering complaints like those, this 50-pint model does not sound too shabby.

      Don't take our word for it, though, since our shopping algorithm weaved it way through 39663 reviews for 50-pint dehumidifiers to conclude that the DeLonghi DD50PE is a decent choice, but it points to better ones in terms of user reviews (Check out the top of this list).
