The answer was not shown either in the owner's manual or on the sticker on the side of the unit. On a CNET website that lists dehumidifier specs I found the "Maximum Power Consumption" on this specific model to be 545 watts.

This has a washable air filter.

Is this meant for only one room or how many Square Ft. Does it service?

Asked by jgh51 October 6, 2020

Answer

As indicated in the title, the LG PuriCare™ 50 Pint Dehumidifier has a dehumidification capacity of 50 pints per day. Dehumidifier capacity is rated by the amount of moisture removed in 24 hours, so a 50-pint humidifier is rated to remove 50 pints of moisture in one day. A dehumidifier's capacity loosely indicates how large of a space it will cover in square feet. Therefore, if you know the square footage of the area you'd like to dehumidify, you can get a loose idea of the capacity you will need. You will first need to measure the area where you want to operate the dehumidifier. Choosing a dehumidifier based on the size of your space and its capacity alone isn't enough. To find the absolute best solution, you'll also need to consider your room's conditions. In other words, You'll need to take the size of the space into account as well as the level of dampness. You can actually measure room humidity levels with a simple room humidity monitor or a humidity gauge, also known as a hygrometer. To find out the size of your room in square feet by measuring the length and width of your room and multiply them. A dehumidifier’s performance is greatly affected by both the size and humidity level of a particular area. A 50-pint Dehumidifier is recommended for a 500 sq. ft area that is very damp with a 70-80% Humidity level in which you have wet spots on the walls or floors. It is recommended for areas up to 2000 square feet that smell musty and feel damp all the time. These are places where you have experienced mold growth in the past or where moisture is visible on the walls...^IFV

Does this come with the drain hose? There is conflicting information in the spec.

Asked by Rob October 3, 2020
2
Answers

No, the unit does not come with a hose. It does come with an adaptor called a 'drainage adaptor'. I bought a six foot stretch of hose to run from the dehumidifier into my basement shower stall. It's important to let gravity take the water down to the drain so be sure to arrange the hose in a steadily downward direction—no uphill path for the water.

I dropped water bucket while emptying...it is cracked and leaks...what is part number and where can I get another? Than

This unit replaced a Frigidaire dehumidifier with similar specs which appeared to have reached the end of its service life after about 20 months. So far, after 3 1/2 weeks in our basement, this LG has more than met expectations. It absorbs humidity at least as efficiently, appears to be more solidly built, is more attractive (though heavier), runs more quietly, and has neither stalled nor presented any error messages. The air pumped out by the unit does not noticeably warm the room. We're using it only with a hose and so can't comment on performance with the built-in tank. We find that the height of the drain plug makes it easy for gravity to bring the water down through the hose and into the drain. Overall we're delighted with the LG's performance.

Haven’t had it that long but so far it’s great. We have a smaller LG unit as well that just keeps going so when it came time to replace our newer Frigidaire we decided to get another LG. For a dehumidifier it is quiet and very effective. Our basement feels great now!

I bought this after losing our AC and our open windows caused the humidity to skyrocket. I chose LG over GE strictly because of how sleek it looks. Fits right into our modern home. I setup the dehumidifier upstairs first where the humidity was in the 70s for some rooms. It ran for a few hours and I emptied it before bed. I let it run overnight and the next morning it was full and humidity was down to 50. It’s since been downstairs and our humidity is kept at 45-50. It’s a little on the loud side but not bad. I’d compare the noise level to a window unit AC and we turn it off while watching TV. I plan on moving it to the basement soon with the continuous drain attachment. So far it’s been the perfect dehumidifier.

Live in a 800 square foot apartment in a basement. This unit was perfect for it. Within the hour it was less muggy and the room even felt cooler. Easy to use and blends into the background. Easy decision, get this one. Don’t look further. My cat loves it too.

We bought this around Christmas for our basement and we're so pleased with it! The basement is always cold and damp..a room you dont really want to spend time in...but with this dehumidifier..it pulls buckets of water out of the air..so impressed! We leave it running nonstop..it makes a little music note sound when bucket full..I dump it and it's back to work. You will be pleased!

Dehumidifier Works Great!
Customer review from lg.com logo
This dehumidifier is extremely effective and powerful! It easily drops humidity level in our home minutes. I was initially surprised at how much moisture this pulls out of the air so quickly. The unit feels very sturdy and well made. The controls are clear and easy to use -.the timer and variable fan speeds are both great features. It is also really easy to empty the water collection bin. Great built in handle, and just tilt to reinstall. Overall, this is a great dehumidifier and I definitely recommend it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A high quality product.
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
While expensive, this LG dehumidifier appears to be very well designed and made. It actually lowers the humidity by several points below its setting. I also have a separate humidity gauge to verify. It also has a automatic one hour shutoff in every 24 hours which is a good feature. I use the direct drain feature but you must buy your own hose.
