How to find the best dehumidifier

While many models may appear very similar, here are the main specifications you should use to compare them and find the best dehumidifier.

  1. Capacity: Dehumidifier capacity refers to how quickly the device can remove moisture from the air. Different parts of a home (e.g. laundry vs bedroom) will require a dehumidifier with a different capacity.
  2. ACH: ACH stands for Air Changes per Hour, a measure of how many times per hour that the total volume of air in a room is processed by the dehumidifier.
  3. Coverage area: Choose a dehumidifier appropriate for the size of the room or area where it is used. High capacity models are expensive and wasted in small spaces while low capacity models are overworked and result in high electricity use.
  4. Humidity control: Adjustable humidity settings let you control the room’s humidity level. Models with built-in hygrometers let you monitor humidity in real time.
  5. Noise level: Dehumidifiers can produce varying levels of noise while in operation. If you plan to use the dehumidifier in a study area or bedroom, choose a quieter model.
  6. Size and portability: If you plan to move your dehumidifier between rooms, consider weight and size, and look for convenient features such as wheels and built-in handles.
  7. Drainage: Most dehumidifiers collect water in a removable reservoir that has to be emptied periodically. Choose a model with large capacity or one that drains directly via a hose.
  8. Energy efficiency: Energy efficiency is important, especially if you plan to run your dehumidifier frequently. Look for units with high Energy Star certification for the most savings.
  9. Additional features: The best dehumidifiers have features such as app integration, auto shut-off, digital displays, timers, air purification and programmable settings.
