✅ Top #1 Pick: Frigidaire Energy Star Dehumidifier
The Frigidaire dehumidifier was a top seller last year and expected to sell out again in 2019.
It’s perhaps the best basement dehumidifier with a drainage pump — you can run it continuously (without having to empty the tank).
Frigidaire dehumidifier sizes:
|Frigidaire Model||Capacity||Water Tank||Noise Level (dB)|
|FFAD3033R1||30-Pint||13.1 Pints||≤ 52 decibels|
|FFAD5033R1||50-Pint||13.1 Pints||≤ 51 decibels|

Buyers say the 70 pint is the best dehumidifier for basements — it’s energy efficient and very high performance.
Gallons: 8.75 daily
Using the remote control, you can set your desired humidity level (instead of increasing/decreasing speed)
At the top, Frigidaire’s LCD display shows you the current humidity.
Buyers also confirm how quietly it runs — operates at only 51 decibels (on “high”) allowing you to run in bedrooms.
The built-in pump makes the Frigidaire 50 and 70 pint the best dehumidifier for basements.
