Pull-out 13.1-pint tank

Over 24 hours, it can pull 50 pints from the air if you empty it out whenever the full-tank alert goes off.

Ready-Select controls

You can choose your ideal humidity level and set an on/off timer using the Ready-Select controls. This way, you don’t have to be in the house for the dehumidifier to start working; simply set the time you want the unit to turn on up to 24 hours in advance, and also when you want it to turn off. You can come home to a humidity-free house after a hard day’s work and feel comfortable.

Energy-Star rated

The Frigidaire 50-Pint dehumidifier is an Energy-Star rated product, which means it has been proven to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by being more energy-efficient. When you get this dehumidifier, you are not only doing your part to fight global warming, you will conserve energy and ultimately save money.

Strengths

Efficient

In addition to the Energy-Star rating, the Frigidaire is able to run even during temperatures as low as 41 degrees. This results in better energy conservation and less zeros on your energy bill. The refrigerant is also efficient and environmentally-friendly. It’s RA410, which has recently become the refrigerant of choice because it doesn’t contribute to the depletion of the ozone.

Portable

Moving the Frigidaire FFAD5033R1 from room to room to dehumidify your whole home is not difficult. The unit has a top and side handle, as well as wheels so you can either choose to lift your dehumidifier or roll it around.

Protects against mold/mildew

Humidity often breeds gross mold and mildew that not only makes your home look bad, but can cause dangerous lung conditions. By reducing the moisture and humidity in the air, the Frigidaire dehumidifier is making your home a safer environment. It also has a washable, anti-bacterial mesh filter that easily slides out of the bottom.

Weaknesses

Lots of bucket-emptying

The tank is only 13.1 pint, so if you want to get the full 50-pints-a-day, you have to empty the internal bucket very frequently. This can really disrupt your day and can be messy if you accidentally spill the bucket when you’re emptying it. The other option is to set up a continuous draining system, though this unit doesn’t have a drain pump. It uses a gravity drain, so you have to use a short hose.

Overall Review

The Frigidaire FFAD5033R1 Energy Star 50-Pint dehumidifier’s greatest strength is its energy efficiency. It’s a more environmentally-friendly choice, and you save money on your energy spending. The dehumidifier is also convenient to move around, and it promotes a healthy, clean environment for those with breathing problems and everyone else. There’s a lot of bucket-emptying required to get to the 50 pints a day, but you can set up a continuous drainage system if you’re dealing with a lot of humidity.
