This device allows you to make air dryer over a very large area, up to 4500 square feet. The device holds 1.8 gallons of water and deletes up to 50 pints of water a day. The air in the room will be that much dryer. Therefore this model is great or a big house or for a house in a very humid environment.

This model is also built in a beautiful body, so it is not an eyesore, as so many air dehumidifiers are said to be. The overall look is sleek and will not spoil the design of your house or flat. Quite contrarily, it will actually look just right, like it is in its place.

This model is not complicated to use. Simply set it to the desired humidity ant let it sit and do its work. When the water holder is full, the model will turn off on its own. If you do not want to come and drain the container, you can attach a hose to it, which will remove the water. The device is shipped without a hose, and the model’s socket is 5/3 of an inch in diameter. However any garden hose with threads will do the trick.

Aside from moisture the device also removes many bad odors from the air. When air goes through the device’s compressor, bacteria  are removed. There is a turbo mode too, which facilitates extra-quick work, and faster odor removal.

The manufacturer gives a one-year warranty with the device.

Pros:

  • Great capacity lets the device process huge amounts of air
  • Removes musty smells, by deleting mold spores from the air
  • Energy-efficient

Cons:

  • Might seem noisy to light sleepers

This model is recommended for usage in rooms with areas of 1500 to 3000 square feet. The device removes 50 pints a day at peak efficiency, and is therefore recommended for usage in very damp rooms. The device is praised, among other things, for being very quiet. It is also equipped with comfortable handles on the sides and top, which facilitate easy transportation and storing.

There are two fan speeds, and the amount of removed humidity is customizable, therefore you can select the level of removal which makes you feel most comfortable. The unit has a two-gallon bucket for the removed water. When it is full the machine will shut down and alert you with a beep. If you do not want to drain, then simply attach a hose and the water will leave on its own.

The air also passes through a filter on its way out, and this filter deletes all allergens and other contaminants from the air, making it safer to breathe. There will be much less bacteria in the room after the machine runs for a few hours.

Pros:

  • Removes many allergens and bacteria from the air
  • The reviewers report it is very quick and efficient at doing its job – making the air dry
  • Removes odors as well

Cons:

  • Bulky and noisy are the only cons to this

This one is not just convenient to use, it is also very stylish. It will appear to be at home in any interior. It is also notably easy to control and set. The model has small wheels on the bottom, and as such can be easily moved to another room. It also has ergonomic handles.

This is a whole-house dehumidifier, which can process 70 pints of water a day. This will allow the user to rid and entire home of mildew or molds. The water bucket fits 13.1 pints, and has a comfortable handle and a splash resistant shape.

This model is good for about 2000 square feet, but if the home is very humid or you have a damp basement, the surface area goes down to about 1500 square feet. If you have a drain nearby, then you can attach a hose to make the water drain permanently. The model is amazingly efficient, which is proven by the low operation temperature of barely 41 degrees.

The easy electronic controls show up on a digital screen, which also contributes to the models fashionable look.  There is a settable timer for 24 hours.

Pros:

  • It is very easy to set up continuous drainage, and then you can just forget about it – it works
  • The digital screen makes operation much easier
  • The delayed start option is very convenient

This model is praised for its portability – it is very small and mobile. Its area is 150 square feet, so it is suited for a small room. It collects up to 9 ounces of water per day. The small tank can be removed and emptied once in a while. The model will stop working when the tank is full, and will resume when the tank is returned.

The model is vey quiet, so it can operate in a bedroom while people are seeping, without disturbing them.

The device does not have a drain port, as it is too small to effectively do this. The device works without a compressor, and therefore weighs very little and does not make much noise.

This model is great for any small room and trailer. The volume of the room can be up to 1200 cubic feet.

Pros:

  • Very small and mobile, so easy to take with you
  • Makes minimal noise, actually almost silent
  • Reliably does its job, and truly removes the required amount of water

Cons:

  • It might possibly get hot while working
