PerfectAire PA50

PerfectAire is named as such for a reason and their PA50 50 pint dehumidifier has not let them down. Aside from making sure the moisture in the air is kept under control and the home is protected by humidity damage, you can also expect a cleaner environment due to technology that helps keep allergy symptoms as bay. The manufacturer states this model can be used in areas up to 2,000 square feet, but we would recommend it for smaller areas.

Review Details

This dehumidifier will remove up to 50 pints of moisture every 24 hours and the manufacturer has thought about ease of doing this. The bucket which is easy to remove and empty, and comes with a bucket full indicator and automatic shut-off which eliminates unwanted mess. The PA50 also has the ability for continuous drainage when hooked up to any standard hose.

What We Liked

  • Advanced Quiet Operation
    PerfectAire has paid particular attention to noise levels. This dehumidifier is one of the quietest on the market. When the desired level of humidity has been reached it will switch both the fan and the compressor off and doesn’t re-cycle unnecessarily.
  • Fast and Efficient Dehumidification
    The PA50 has the capability of bringing humidity levels down to the desired level quickly and the control panel will allow precise control within 1%. Due to the technology behind this unit, it can be up and running within minutes and will lower the humidity within just a few hours.
  • Energy Efficient

  • Dual Drainage
    Make use of the easy to empty bucket or hook the unit up to a standard hose for continuous drainage.

What We Didn't Like

  • Large Capacity Bucket
    This dehumidifier has a large capacity bucket which, when full, can be a little difficult to maneuver. This is one reason why PerfectAire has included a continuous drainage option.
  • Cheap Look and Feel
    The PerfectAire PA50 looks somewhat cheap and plastic, but there haven't been any reports about its durability.


There are few, if any negatives that can be said about the PerfectAire 50 pint dehumidifier. The job it has been built to do has not been hidden by over fancy design, this just adds to the fact the manufacturer has brought a dehumidifier to the market that does what it’s supposed – dry the air. It’s not expensive compared to other models of this size and has been built to last.
