Rating of the best dehumidifiers for the home in 2022 (TOP 6)


In this ranking I have compiled the 6 best dehumidifiers for 2022. Only the best models from different price ranges got into my TOP – from 14 0 to 400$. When selecting models, I paid attention to such characteristics as the number of operating modes, the presence of an air filter, the volume of the condensate collection tank, performance and security options. And in order to be as objective as possible, to determine the usability, effectiveness and identify the pros and cons of each model, I studied customer reviews and expert reviews.

Table of participants in the rating of dehumidifiers for an apartment in 2022

What to look for when choosing an air dryer?

  • Performance. This is the most important indicator on which the rate of air dehumidification depends. According to this indicator, the area of the room for which it will be most effective is also determined. On average, household appliances can provide a performance of 12–24 liters per day. This means that the dehumidifier will be able to remove 12–24 liters of moisture from the air in a day of operation. This option is suitable for rooms over 40 square meters. m.
  • Air exchange/area. The larger the area of ​​​​the room, the greater the air exchange rate should be. This parameter shows how much air the device can process. For a room of about 30 sq. m air exchange can be 120 m3 / h.
  • Noise level. This parameter is purely practical. The quieter the device works, the more comfortable for a person. Household dehumidifiers usually do not generate noise above 45-55 dB. This value does not cause discomfort, it can be compared with the noise level during a conversation.
  • Hygrostat. The presence of this sensor allows the device to work in automatic mode – independently turn on and off depending on the humidity of the air and the set value that needs to be reached.
  • Additional options. Some models of dehumidifiers are equipped with additional functions, for example, disinfection, air ionization. Many devices have the ability to carry out self-diagnostics, block the control panel, prevent the system from freezing when the air temperature drops, etc.
