Dehumidifiers: Know What to Look for When Shopping

Dehumidifier brands have come a long way in just a few years. Today, recognized brands offer improved technology that provides more effective humidity management. This enhances indoor comfort, makes cooling and heating more efficient, and reduces moisture-related issues like mold contamination.

Here’s a sampling of some of the best of various dehumidifier brands:

Frigidaire 30-pint.

With one-touch controls and an easily removed, washable filter, this model delivers convenience options and more. Desired target humidity levels are easily programmable, and a digital display shows the exact current humidity. A drain connection is also available so you don’t have to manually empty the reservoir. This unit is Energy Star certified for energy efficiency and lower operating costs.

Vacplus 30-pint bedroom humidifier.

Very low noise plus efficient moisture removal makes this unit particularly suited for a bedroom environment. Producing only 36 decibels, it’s nearly silent compared to other dehumidifier brands, yet it delivers 45 ounces of daily moisture extraction, sufficient to handle a full-size master bedroom. A timer option allows you to start the unit before your scheduled bedtime so the room will be comfortable when you get there. A drain connection and hose supports automatic drain function.

Homelabs 70-pint model.

In many homes, the basement’s a zone of chronic humidity. Designed specifically for basements, this Homelabs model features enough high-capacity moisture-extraction power to handle 4,500 square feet. An internal turbo fan moves air at up to 188 cubic feet per minute. The unit offers a continuous run mode for 24/7 moisture reduction and performs well in fluctuating basement temperatures.

Aprilaire 1850 Whole House Dehumidifier.

For the definitive humidity solution, this whole-house unit from one of the major dehumidifier brands permanently connects to HVAC ductwork and automatically extracts up to 95 pints of moisture daily from the entire home. Desired humidity levels are programmable on a wall-mounted digital humidistat. The unit is self-draining into your plumbing system and requires only annual cleaning and preventive maintenance.
