There are so many different types of dehumidifiers out there, and so many brands that offer more or less qualitative products, that it can become a nightmare to try and choose something that is reliable, worth your money, and suited for your needs. This is where reviews come in handy because you can easily pinpoint a good product and realize what products should best be avoided. Our website will be a good source of information for you, as we will review the better products on the market, thus allowing you to select from only the best, and be able to focus on the details, rather than wasting time browsing through countless products. Today’s reviewed dehumidifier is the DeLonghi DD50P, rated as one of the best on the market.
This model has a few special features that you will absolutely love, and you will be convinced of its performance in what follows. This is not your average powerless dehumidifier, it is a product that actively removes and collects humidity from your home, making for a much more comfortable atmosphere and reducing health risks that come with the formation of mold and mildew. Let’s check it out.
The DeLonghi DD50P is even different in design than other dehumidifiers; however, when it comes to these devices, you mustn’t always expect a design that can be easily blended in with your furniture, living room decorations and so on. What you can expect is to be able to hide it from view with other objects, or place it in a corner of the room and still have it perform optimally. What’s important about this product’s design is that it is sturdy enough to prevent most chances of tipping over and that its smooth plastic casing looks neat and appealing enough not to bother you when in the same room. It comes in either white or white with silver colors, it has an easily accessible container that we will discuss later on, and an easy to use control panel on the top with LCD display.
One of the first things that set it apart is that it can be used with its capacious container, or it can be turned into a remote area dehumidifier, as it contains a pump which can be attached to a hose, so the moisture and water are constantly removed and displaced in the sewer. This means you can use it for the basement or garage as well, or for some other spaces you don’t visit often. The 16 inches long hose should be enough for any situation and allow you to install this constant moisture disposal easily. It is also ideal for larger spaces, and it can lower humidity in rooms as large as 1,000 square feet; thus, its container is large enough to store enough moisture, so you won’t have to empty it manually except every few days. Another interesting feature is that it can also passively drain itself as well, with another shorter hose; this, however, is not useful in any situation, except maybe for basements where you can direct the hose towards a floor drain. Moreover, the container bucket is placed in front of the dehumidifier, behind a transparent window, so you can see when it’s about to fill and empty it.
This product only weighs about 40 pounds, so it is easy to transport from place to place; it measures 11.8 inches in depth, 15 inches in width and 24 inches in height. Although you can find smaller, more compact products, this one is intended for larger spaces, or areas with big humidity problems. The control panel allows you to control a variety of settings on your dehumidifier; first of all, you control the exact value of the humidity you want, you get to see temperatures in the room, and you can also opt between fan speeds, which on the low settings provides a really quiet operation, so you won’t be bothered by it. There is also a 24-hour timer allowing you to program it to start functioning at certain hours. The DD50P functions at low temperatures as well, the lowest point being 41 degrees Fahrenheit, but it also has an anti-frost device, so you can you can safely leave it on in colder rooms, like a workshop, garage or basement.

As you will see from other sources as well, all DeLonghi dehumidifiers are Energy Star Rated, which means they consume the minimum energy required for a maximum output. Moreover, it has a lifetime washable filter, which you can remove easily and clean, thus making maintenance simple and ensuring the same quality performance in the long run.
Besides having a simple control panel with LCD display that allows you to easily control humidity levels, temperature, and fan speeds, this product is also fitted with caster wheels, so you can easily move it from place to place. Its multiple options for drainage and moisture disposal also make it convenient and practical. Finally, a bit of information which may decrease the reputation of this product is that apparently, it doesn’t come with a warranty. This is disappointing for a $300 product, but all in all, customers seem to be satisfied with it and agree that it works great in both smaller and bigger spaces.
