The ffad5033r1 is an Energy Star dehumidifier that removes moisture from your home to help eliminate mold, mildew and stuffy air. It is small and lightweight so it can be moved easily from room to room.
The dehumidifier comes with a water tank that can be easily removed for emptying and replacement. The tank can hold up to 13.1 pints of water. This is much smaller than the water tank on the FAD504DWD dehumidifier which can hold up to 16.3 pints of water. This could require you to empty and replace the water tank more often which can lead to down time in which your dehumidifier isn’t working.
This dehumidifier does draw slightly more power than average at both mild (hands on test results) and maximum humidity levels. This may make it less energy efficient than other 50 pint dehumidifiers. However, you should also remember that when assessing a dehumidifier’s energy efficiency that power draw alone isn’t the whole story. You also need to take into account the dehumidifier’s moisture removal rate which we discuss in detail in this article.
The ffad5033r1 has received an extremely low number of negative consumer reviews which is very impressive for a dehumidifier in this price range. It has also been rated highly by Tom’s Guide and Wirecutter which are both considered to be among the most trustworthy sources on the internet for in-depth hands-on testing. This makes the ffad5033r1 a top choice for those looking for a high quality and affordable dehumidifier in 2020.
