Usability

Breathe safe and comfortable air every time you step foot in your home. Vacplus 50 Pint (30 Pint 2012 DOE) is a semi-modern, white conventional design dehumidifier with a large front air inlet. At an 11.3 x 19.7 x 6.7 inches in size, it is considerably compact and close to 30-pint models size. The 24.2 lb weight does make movability slightly tricky, fortunately, there are durable casters and tuck away handles that can come in handy for room to room dehumidification.

Staying at the front, the 0.8-gallon water tank is not the deepest but will hold 1-3 days of water under normal use. The included water tank cover prevents water splash when you’re performing water emptying. The secure but troublesome air filter is located inside the device that can be removed for cleaning by sliding out the water tank and cap. Moving to the back, there is a large air outlet and an underrated cord storage slot.

Vacplus 35/ 50 Pint dehumidifier is the king of usability. You can choose the 4 cleaning modes from standard, raining, drying, sleep. We are a big fan of the drying mode that helps clothes, towels, and sheets sort, dry and odor-free. Unlike a tumble dryer or radiator that emits direct heat, Vacplus will not cause clothes to wrinkle and shrink. Very useful on rainy days with no sunlight.

Continue with the smart controls, you can set a preferred humidity value ideally between 30% to 50% percent with just a few simple clicks. The two-way timer allows you to choose a time for Vacplus 35/ 50 pints dehumidifier to boot or shut down. Perfect to manage the energy consumption by only using it during off-peak electricity rates. The LED display will work as a humidistat and update you with the current relative humidity level. Last but not least, Wi-Fi feature turns your smartphone into a full-fledged remote control. Just download the apps and start making changes in the comfort of your living room.

No short of features with Vacplus 35/ 60 Pint 3,000 Sq. Ft. dehumidifier. You have the overflow protection auto-shutoff feature that turns off the device once the reservoir is full. Auto-defrost prevents ice from freezing up in the coil when operating at low temperatures. The auto power outage will resume back Vacplus operation after a blackout. The 2 years 100% risk-free warranty guarantees a full refund or replacement if you are not happy with it.

Dehumidification Technology

Equipped with an updated motor, and premium compressor condenser, Vacplus is 30% more efficient than the predecessor model. It can absorb 50 pints of moisture per day or 35 pints based on the 2019 United States Department of Energy (DOE) standard. Regardless of which benchmark you use, it can reach up to 3,000 square footage of dehumidification. Ideal for medium to large room sizes such as living room, bedroom, bathroom, RV, basement, kitchen, garage, and closet with humidity exceeded 50%. The intelligent humidity control will kick in automatically to help manage the dehumidifier operation. Set a humidity value and Vacplus will activate when the ambient humidity level increased and shut down when the humidity hits or falls below the set target.

As mentioned earlier, Vacplus 35/ 50 Pint (2012 DOE) A-D1901 dehumidifier uses dependable and effective refrigeration technology. Best used in a very damp environment (90% RH @ 86°F temperature), polluted and damp air will first pass through the washable filter for filtration. The filtered air will then flow to the warm coils for moisture extraction via condensation. Depending on which method you use, the removed water droplets will either drip down to the water tank or straight to a floor drain via the garden hose. Moisture-free air will be dispersed back out to the air and the cycle continues until a set 30-50% humidity goal is reached. With Vacplus by your side, mold, mildew, pest, and rust issue will be a thing of the past.

Vacplus A-D1901 35/ 50 pint dehumidifier is supposedly at a whispering 36 decibels across most speeds. In real life, use there will be some whirring fan noise that can be irritating for some. Personally, we don't mind having white noise in the background while we work and sleep but check with your partner if she is ok with that. Power consumption is reasonable and suitable for long use despite the lack of Energy Star certification. It will be more energy-efficient than your regular refrigerator, air conditioner, and heater.
