Frigidaire FAD504TDD 50 Pint Dehumidifier Review

The Frigidaire FAD504TDD 50 Pint Dehumidifier firmly deserves its place as our selected best dehumidifier in the 50 pint per day class, boasting the highest average customer rating in the entire home dehumidifiers category.

With the Frigidaire FAD504TDD, you can effortlessly decide how much moisture you want in the air with the simple push button electronic interface, and not only does this frigidaire 50 pint dehumidifier remove moisture, it also cleans the air as it processes it with its unique anti-microbial filter which rids the air of potentially dangerous bacteria and allergens which can often cause illness.

The Frigidaire FAD504TDD 50 Pint Dehumidifier is the ideal addition to a house that may be in need of dry, clean air, whether due to climate or due to other circumstances, for example damp basements or previously flooded areas. Whatever your needs, the Frigidaire FAD504TDD is surely one of the best dehumidifiers out there.

The Frigidaire FAD504TDD has:

  • Dehumidifying capacity of 50 pints per day
  • 17 pint bucket with handle for quick removal of gathered water
  • Power usage of 615W
  • Unique air filtration system to cleanse air in addition to dehumidifying
  • 1 year full warranty on the entire unit

As mentioned in the introductory product summary (first paragraph), the Frigidaire FAD504TDD has really pleased a large crowd of reviewers in a notoriously difficult product category. Even for the best companies (e.g. Frigidaire, Soleus Air, Danby et al.) making a dehumidifier that will last years is an extremely tricky task; there are simply so many things that can go wrong, many of which are really out of the manufacturer’s control. It’s really impressive, therefore, that this Frigidaire 50 pint dehumidifier, the FAD504TDD, has managed to average a score of almost 90 per cent (4.4/5 stars) on Amazon. The fact that Frigidaire is willing to back the FAD504TDD with a full 1 year warranty is also indication that the manufacturer is aware of the capability of this medium sized yet surprisingly powerful unit.

Before getting started on any specifics contained within the specific Frigidaire FAD504TDD Dehumidifier reviews, I must mention that the Frigidaire FAD504TDD does in fact have the capability of continuous function using a hose leading to a suitable drain (at level height or below), although there is no mention of this in the Amazon product description. It’s really annoying to empty a 17 pint bucket two to three times a day when running continuously, so in my testing I only did that for a day and then switched to the hose. It’s so much easier.

It’s very difficult to relate what customers are praising about the Frigidaire FAD504TDD without sounding like some sort of sales letter. Anything you can imagine has been praised over 199 5/5 star Frigidaire FAD504TDD Dehumidifier reviews, and 66 4/5 star Frigidaire FAD504TDD Dehumidifier reviews, from the ease of setup to the energy efficiency, all the way to the ‘end product’, i.e. an extremely dry room! Customers are reporting that it can dehumidify spaces of up to 2000 square feet, though the exact number is (quite irritatingly) not specified by the manufacturer, as far as I am aware. (If anyone knows whether Frigidaire do publish their units’ area capabilities, please do contact me via the contact page.)

I find it far easier to nitpick and despite the brilliant review statistics for the Frigidaire FAD504TDD there are still a few issues raised by some less satisfied authors of a few Frigidaire FAD504TDD Dehumidifier reviews. (There are always going to be some.) One is that the bucket is difficult to handle – try and get the hose set up so that you don’t have to deal with the hassle. Trust me, it’s irritating to say the least to have to empty the bucket over and over again. Even if you have the hose, which is the next issue raised by customers, you should not run this continuously. Some portable dehumidifiers can be left on 24/7, but you will find that no matter the quality, if you use it like that without giving it a rest, they won’t last longer than 1-2 years. Be responsible with your use and when dehumidifying, close all doors and windows to the room, and you will get excellent results.
