When humidity wreaks havoc inside your home, it’s more than just a feeling of discomfort. Persistent moisture causes metal items to rust, mold to creep on the walls, and allergens to flourish.

Thankfully, a dehumidifier can solve the problem by balancing humidity levels and improving overall air quality.

Our Vacplus dehumidifier review examines two units and whether they pack enough power to kick humidity to the curb. Let’s go!

Vac Plus Dehumidifier Design Overview

Vacplus 50 Pints Dehumidifier with black & white exterior, circular grille, and controls at the top

Vacplus is a home appliance brand that has been around since 2015. Fairly new to the dehumidifier scene, we were eager to see how their 30-pint and 50-pint units perform and whether they’re worth the money.

With that being said, both models are very affordable. Both cost under $200, which is great for budget hunters, but beware that you probably won’t get a feature-rich machine like other units that cost more.

For one, the Vacplus 50 pint dehumidifier only covers 3,000 sq ft., compared to some other 50-pint units that cover 4,500 sq ft.

Plus, both models are not equipped with a pump for continuous draining, although you can attach a hose that feeds down to a floor drain.

But let’s focus on the perks. Vacplus dehumidifiers are compact and lightweight, making it easy to hoist one upstairs or squeeze it into small spaces. It’s the perfect design for small apartments, bedrooms, nurseries, and motorhomes.

Let’s take a look at the specifications of each unit.

Vacplus 30 pints dehumidifier

This smaller, less expensive Vacplus unit holds 30 pints of moisture and covers a 1,500 sq ft. area.

Its dimensions are 11.3 x 6.7 x 19.7 inches, and it weighs a mere 21 lbs. The slender, smooth plastic housing features an LED control panel on top and a water bucket at the bottom for easy accessibility.

There are caster wheels on the base that swivel 360° for no-fuss portability.

The drainage system and filter are the same as the 50-pint unit. Aside from the moisture capacity, the 50 pint makes more noise and comes with WiFi connectivity.

The Vacplus 30 pint dehumidifier is suitable for small spaces, especially if you need to quickly dry clothes or clear up moisture in an RV.

The 50-pint unit is larger, with the capacity to hold 50 pints of moisture. The large capacity makes it ideal for larger rooms with moderate to heavy dampness, including basements, living rooms, garages, and crawlspaces.

Its dimensions are 11.3 x 6.7 x 19.7 inches, and it weighs 24.2 lbs, which is only slightly heavier than the 30-pint unit. So, you can still enjoy the same compact convenience.

The 50-pint unit also comes with caster wheels, except they don’t swivel. Some Vacplus dehumidifier reviews have remarked that they seem flimsy, but this is a minor drawback.

The important question, though, is how these dehumidifiers perform. Can they clear up the moisture mayhem in your home? Let’s find out next!

Vacplus Dehumidifier Features

Vacplus did their homework and integrated the most popular features on their 30-pint and 50-pint dehumidifiers, including automated functions, dual drainage, and a reusable filter system.

This is a true-blue residential dehumidifier, meaning you can find other units with a similar feature set. But for the price, we were pleasantly surprised to see some fancy extras on the 50 pint that we’ll discuss shortly.

Washable Filter

Both units come with a reusable filter, which is ideal since you won’t have to run to the store and fork out cash for an item that ends up as waste.

Instead, you just have to wash the filter every three months. You can do this by using a vacuum cleaner or soft cloth to remove dust and debris. 

You can also hand wash it gently with water, then lay it out to dry completely before installing it inside the unit once more.

Noise Level

The amount of noise emitted from the dehumidifier compressor is a detail you’ll want to pay attention to, especially if you want a dehumidifier for a baby’s bedroom or office space.

Both the 30-pint and 50-pint units supposedly emit 36 dB, which is surprising since smaller units are generally quieter compared to larger units.

With that being said, many Vacplus 50 pints dehumidifier reviews claim that it’s noisy and closer to 50 dB. 

Either way, it’s always advisable to test a dehumidifier before buying it if you’re worried about the noise. The 30 pint is a safe option if you’re going to use it for a bedroom.

Control Panel

The control panels on both units feature light-up LED displays that make it easy to read the humidity level at all times, with a handful of self-explanatory buttons.

They share some of the same functions, but the 50 pint has four different modes and a WiFi connection.

These are the functions that both share:

  • 24-Hour Timer: This allows you to adjust the operating duration up to 24 hours.
  • Dry Clothes Mode: When it’s rainy and your clothes are damp, this mode dries them quickly.
  • Humidity Sensor: This uses a high-precision humidity sensor to detect changes in the surrounding temperature and adjust the settings to stay consistent with your preset. Once the desired level is reached, it remains in standby mode.

As mentioned, the 50-pint dehumidifier comes with a WiFi connection and the Tuyasmart app that allows you to operate the machine from your smart device.

With the app, you can turn the unit ON/OFF, monitor the humidity level, and adjust the settings. Furthermore, there are four extra modes on the 50 pint as described below.

  • Standard: This is the original setting that lets you choose your presets as usual.
  • Raining: Humidity levels rise when it’s raining outside, but this mode ensures it stays nice and dry indoors.
  • Drying: This mode runs the unit continuously at the highest speed to rapidly dry a high moisture area, such as a laundry room or bathroom.
  • Sleeping: This mode keeps the noise level low, which is questionable with the 50 pint according to customer reviews.

Users report satisfaction with the app, mentioning that it’s convenient, works quickly, and is easy to use. That saves you the trouble of having to climb down into a dark, dank basement to adjust dehumidifier settings.

Another convenient feature of the 50-pint unit is that the control panel has three icons that change color according to the humidity level. 

That way, you can glance over from across the room and know whether the level is high or low straight away without having to amble over and squint at the display.

Two Drainage Modes

The dual drainage system on the 30-pint and 50-pint units are the same, giving consumers the option to empty the water bucket manually or attach the included hose for continuous draining.

Manual drainage comes in handy if you plan on moving your dehumidifier frequently. It offers more freedom, as opposed to attaching the gravity-fed hose to the drain valve that needs to stay by a floor drain at all times.

The 30-pint unit comes with a 1.3-liter tank that automatically shuts off when full to prevent overflow. It reactivates once you empty the bucket.

The 50 pint has the same bucket setup but with a larger 3-liter tank. 

Truth be told, both buckets are on the smaller side compared to other units on the market, which means frequent emptying. Some reviews report having to empty the 30-pint unit up to four times per day!

If you have a floor drain located in the room you plan to use your dehumidifier, such as in a basement, then you can utilize continuous draining. 

But the conditions have to be just right, and not everyone has multiple floor drains in their home.

Another factor to consider is the hose. It’s pretty short at 3 ft. long, and reviews mention that it kinks easily.

Users also report leaking from the hose that collects in the water bucket, filling it even in continuous draining mode. Vacplus might’ve been better off not including the hose system in the first place!

Vac Plus Dehumidifier Pros vs. Cons


  • Affordable
  • Lightweight and compact
  • The 50 pint comes with wifi and an app
  • User-friendly control panel
  • Clothes Drying Mode
  • Reusable filter


  • The water buckets are smaller and need to be emptied frequently
  • The drainage hose is short and may leak into the water bucket
  • The 50-pint unit can be noisy

The Vacplus dehumidifier series features two popular units—one that collects up to 50 pints of moisture and another that collects 30 pints.

Both are solidly built with a compact design that is easy to move and store in an apartment or house.

They share a similar feature set, such as dual drainage, auto shutoff, and the nifty humidity sensor. The 50 pint comes with WiFi connectivity and an app that makes it easy to control the dehumidifier from anywhere.

But, the 30 pint is quieter compared to the 50 pint, which might be a priority for some consumers.

Sadly, the drainage system is a drawback for both, with smaller buckets that fill up quickly and the possibility of the hose leaking into the bucket.

So when it comes down to it, which model should you choose?

It depends on how you plan to use your dehumidifier.

If you don’t mind a noisy compressor, have moderate to heavy moisture, and want to use it in one area—such as a basement—then we recommend the Vacplus 50-pint dehumidifier.

However, if you plan on using your dehumidifier in a bedroom, office, or living area and don’t mind emptying the water bucket, then you’ll probably like the Vacplus 30-pint dehumidifier.

Either way, the price is right with both of these units, and you’ll get a reliable, high-performance machine that banishes humidity quickly.
