Never had a continuous fan before and was concerned at first. However, this unit is quiet!! I have had other dehumidifiers and when the units turn on, not only do you hear the fan, but the extremely noisy refrigeration unit that removes the moisture. That is the real noise of other units!!! You can barely tell when this unit's compressor turns on! I find the continuous fan a plus in having better air distribution, more accurate humidity monitoring and moisture removal. Great unit and that means super value! Perhaps the ideal unit to perfectly please everyone is to provide a setting option for the fan to run continuously or when the humidistat calls for moisture removal? By the way, I love the auto feature that chooses the most efficient fan setting. Overall, great features, technology, etc. so I am happy!

This dehumidifier does remove water but it will not drain via the hose, only into the bucket. I tried contacting the manufacturer via the email and phone numbers in the manual but they would never return my calls/emails. Sylvane did offer to refund my money so I give them credit for that. I would treat this as a throw away item as if you ever need a part or support from PrimeAire you will not get it. My suggestion is to buy a known name brand and that way you will get some product support once it breaks or does not work correctly.

Comments about PrimeAire PA5010E 50 Pint Dehumidifier:

We move the dehumidifier from room to room and although it is somewhat heavy and bulky we find the job it does more than adequate. Note- when moving the unit the reservoir easily spills so it is best to empty all water before moving the unit

    Comments about PrimeAire PA5010E 50 Pint Dehumidifier:

    I used this product to take the humidity from my basement. After five days of running, it took out 2% of moisture and only 2 1/4 quarts of water.
    My basement was 300 sq.ft. under what was suggested for this product.
    I returned the product and received a full refund.

    I did purchase another companies unit and it took out 5% moisture in 24 hours.

        I have so much humidity in my condo. This dehumidifier works wonders and covers my entire place. Easy to empty, easy to setup but when its nearly empty is when it seems to make the most noise but its tolerable. I would recommend it.

          Comments about PrimeAire PA5010E 50 Pint Dehumidifier:

          Great dehumidifier for the price! Never really get the humidity under 50% but I think thats more just a product of my environment. Great auto timer feature and the dehumidifier always pulls water into the bucket. Only cons, is it doesn't have a pump, but 50 quarts is plenty large. Additionally its a bit loud, but its to be expected when there is a condenser. Overall great value, good product.
