When choosing among the best home dehumidifiers, there are many
compare. Read the reviews about the best home, room and basement
A home air dehumidifier is a healthy choice to keep the humidity at the
proper level in your home all year round.
The optimal humidity level for any room in your home is 35%-50%.
there is more humidity for an extended amount of time, more than a few
days, mold, bacteria, germs and other problems can flourish.
Any dehumidifier will be helpful in maintaining healthy air, but some
stand out as quality products. The top quality air dehumidifiers will
have some nice features over cheaper brands. Depending on where
the dehumidifier will be used and how often, will determine
which is best for you.
If you need a dehumidifier for a large area of your home, consider
buying one that will remove 50-70 pints of water per day. This will
lessen the amount of times you will need to empty the reservoir.
Top quality home dehumidifiers with excellent reviews are the Danby 50
and 70 pint and Santa Fe Whole Home Dehumidifiers. The Danbys require
manual empty of the reservoir. The Santa Fe Whole Home Humidifier is
quite expensive, but is highly rated, will easily dehumidify up to 2200
sq. ft. and has an automatic pump, so you never have to worry about
If you will be using the dehumidifier in just one room in your home
like a bedroom or nursery, a small, portable unit will be best. Some of
the best room dehumidifiers are made by Danby, Santa Fe and
Comfort-Aire. Look for one that has good reviews for being quiet, as
some are too loud for living or sleeping areas.
As for basement dehumidifiers, I recommend low-temperature
dehumidifiers if your basement is sometimes below 60 degrees.
Dehumidifiers work best in higher temperatures. Anything near 50
degrees and it just won't dehumidify very well.
