    Promising review: "Was having trouble with excess moisture in our single-car garage! When it came and I saw how small it was, I thought, 'Oh no, this will never work!' But to our surprise, this is a wonderful little workhorse! In two or three days time it has a full cup and there is a noticeable difference in our garage! We love it and you barely notice that it is running...very quiet. So glad we bought it! It's very easy to empty! Just pull the little black and in seconds it's empty, slide the cup back in, turn it back on and it's ready to go again! Love it!" —Marcia in FL

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

    2. An incredibly easy-to-use (and even easier to look at) Lonove Dehumidifier for those who want to press one button and let the machine run continuously for 24 hours or until the tank is full and automatically shuts off.

    Size: 27 oz.

    Square Feet: 185

    Weight: 2.9 lbs.

    Warranty: 2 years

    Promising review: "I recently discovered that what I thought was an exhaust vent in our main bathroom in our apartment turned out to be nothing but a hole cut in the ceiling with a fan mounted in it. Since moving in we've always had a problem with that bathroom being humid and 'wet' even several hours after the shower is used. Now we know why. So to try and remedy this we ordered this dehumidifier. It was relatively cheap compared to other similarly sized models so if it didn't work out it wouldn't be that bad of hit. Well, lemme tell you this thing works like a champ! Within ten minutes of turning it on the moisture is all but gone from the air. I even tried it with the door closed and got almost the same result! The only bad thing about it is how absolutely silent the dang thing is! It's easy to forget the thing is on its so quiet. We have since made a permanent spot for it on our bathroom counter and plan on buying another for our master bathroom. This thing is awesome!" —Shawn

    3. A (dare we say) stylish-looking Honati Small Dehumidifier that keeps things ultra-quiet when place in bathrooms, closets, and other small rooms while emitting a strangely pleasant green glow.

    Size: 22 oz.

    Square Feet: 160

    Weight: 2.59 lbs.

    Warranty: 2 years

    Promising review: "I bought this dehumidifier for my bathroom, which stays damp. This is my third dehumidifier for the house, but only my second smaller unit. I chose this model because I was ready for a dehumidifier that didn’t look like a dehumidifier. I also wanted a unit that I could easily clean the tank because this one has a removable lid, which was very important to me for hygiene and allergy reasons. I did not realize the dehumidifier had a green light, but it’s not been an issue for me sleeping. I have grown to like the green light since it serves as a soft night light. It would be super cool if the green light could have a color change option, but honestly that likely would be at a different price point. For the price, I’ve been overall happy, especially with the aesthetic design." —LooLoo

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    4. A free-standing Ivation dehumidifier with a hose for continuous drainage in case that half-gallon water reservoir fills up too quickly. Also includes an anti-tilt shutoff function should the machine ever accidentally tip over., Amazon

    Size: 208 oz.

    Square Feet: 270

    Weight: 13.77 lbs.

    Warranty: None

    Promising review: "I purchased this compact dehumidifier for a little storage room in my basement that always felt damp and had a distinct odor when you opened the door. The space was less than 100 sq. ft. This little unit takes all the humidity out of the space that has a cinderblock wall that seems to always be damp. As if that wasn't enough, it smells fresh and clean even though we just painted it with Drylock which stinks everything up. The size is perfect, it performs amazingly, it is quiet, efficient, and worth every penny." —Barbara L.

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99+ (available in two sizes).

    5. A portable but powerful Hysure dehumidifier that'll do more than suck moisture out of the air; it's also adept at removing condensation from windows, odors from small living spaces, and mildew from your walls.

    Size: 23+ oz.

    Square Feet: 215

    Weight: 2.64 lbs.

    Warranty: None

    Promising review: "Being someone who lives near the coast, my basement is always wet. It's what made me decide to purchase a dehumidifier for the laundry room. When I first got the package, I was very surprised by the size of this powerful machine. However, I've to admit that when I first saw this machine, I start to question whether this machine can win the job I need from it. The truth is, it has performed beyond my expectations! My laundry room is no longer wet like after a rain, but very clean and in a perfect condition that I want it to be." —Ben W.

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in two sizes).

    6. A high-efficiency, portable Seavon dehumidifier to keep things quiet (and dry) when you sleep thanks to thermoelectric cooling technology that operates without the need for a loud compressor. Works in just about any medium-sized space.


    Size: 16 oz.

    Square Feet: 1,500

    Weight: 2.4 lbs

    Warranty: 1 year

    Promising review: "It works great! I used this on a small bedroom that was so damp there was mold beginning to form on the window blinds and bed frame! However, this is quiet, and does the job perfectly! My windows are dry and my hygrometer indicates the humidity is lower. It runs quietly and apparently is designed to run continuously; the unit stays cool and the wall wort is moderately warm. I had no problem emptying the reservoir. I'm very happy and highly recommend it." —Ivan

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    7. A Vremi dehumidifier with a "Turbo mode" which increases fan speed for those extra-muggy times when you can't begin to tell the difference between indoors and outdoors.

    Size: 352 oz.

    Square Feet: 1,500

    Weight: 33.1 lbs.

    Warranty: 1 year

    Promising review: "This is a great dehumidifier. I was worried it would be too big or too heavy, but it’s just perfect. (I’m trying to declutter my place to make it easier to move for medical residency). Despite its compact size, the holding tank is plenty big enough for the Florida humidity. It’s worth the money to reduce my dust mite allergies (and far cheaper than allergy meds). Also, for the people who are saying this thing is too loud, do you live in a library? It’s just a little white noise in the background. I find it incredibly soothing to hear the dehumidifier running. It’s a nice perk to have the white noise to drown out the neighborhood noise. Overall, I could not be happier. It’s a great little machine." —Elizabeth T.

    Get it from Amazon for $199+ (available in three sizes).

    8. An easy-to-transport Yaufey dehumidifier that'll automatically detect humidity levels but also allows you to set your own so it'll automatically start working when those levels go too high.

    Size: 480

    Square Feet: 1,500

    Weight: 23.8 lbs.

    Warranty: 1 year

    Promising review: "Perfect size for my studio apartment! Can easily wheel it from the main room to the bathroom (on hard floors, doesn’t move as easy on carpet/rugs). Light enough to carry if rolling isn’t the best option for your space. Sturdy handle opening for carrying. I don’t live in a very humid area but the inside of my apartment gets muggy. I only need to empty it once or twice per day. This thing does a great job! Plus it helps dry the air out and makes my AC that much more efficient since it doesn’t have to work as hard to cool the air down! I leave this thing running almost always and it’s great. Very happy with my purchase." —Katherine Murg

    Get it from Amazon for $189.99.

    9. An energy-saving Hysure dehumidifier, because, quite simply, sometimes you don't want another white box in your home. It's just like the model in #5 but will match the rest of your black gadgets and boxes.

    Size: 20 oz.

    Square Feet: 1,200

    Weight: 2.64 lbs.

    Warranty: 2 year

    Promising review: "We have struggled with moisture in our small bathroom for years — we keep the door closed any time we aren’t in there to keep our cats out, which means humidity from showers etc tends to get trapped in the space. This dehumidifier has made a huge difference. It’s small enough to sit on our counter without being in the way, and while you can hear the fan running it’s not obnoxiously loud. In less than two weeks it filled the 700 ml reservoir. I wish we had bought this years ago." —Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in two sizes).

    10. A Vacplus dehumidifier that pulls double duty with its dehumidification (that's a real word) mode and its clothes-drying mode, especially beneficial for those more delicate items you don't want to put in the dryer like baby clothes or underwear.

    Size: 480 oz.

    Square Feet: N/A

    Weight: 20.9 lbs.

    Warranty: 2 Years

    Promising review: "This is a great humidifier that is easy to use and effective. First off, it has roller wheels so it’s easy to transport. Secondly, it is very quite. Lastly, it can dry clothes! I actually experimented with it and of course, it wasn’t as good as a dryer, but it really did dry the clothes much faster than if I had just hung them up to dry. The air that comes out is cold so no need to worry about clothes shrinking. The water reservoir in the back is simple to use and has plenty of space. All in all, I’m pleased with this purchase." —Lea

    Get it from Amazon for $169.99.

    11. A Midea dehumidifier for those times when humidity suddenly isn't your biggest problem. If there's a power outage, the auto-restart function kicks in at the chosen settings when the juice comes back. And if things get too chilly, the auto-defrost function will stop collected water from turning into a big block of ice.

    Size: 320 oz.

    Square Feet: 1,500

    Weight: 33.5 lbs.

    Warranty: 1 Year

    Promising review: "I live down in Florida where the daily humidity will creep into every space and feel like you are swimming in a soup bowl for two-thirds of the year. I needed to lower the humidity in my apartment to one, feel better and two, protect my home from moisture damage. To do so, I needed to run this unit around the clock for around three weeks and this thing never missed a beat. It was consistent in pulling out buckets and buckets of water out of the air for the whole run. The collection bucket would be full every six and a half hours or so but, my space was around 75% humidity so I expected this. No issues with the unit appearing stressed or slowing down. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to get higher volumes of moisture out of the air, or for those with larger spaces and lower volumes looking to maintain comfort levels." —Bdm106

    Get it from Amazon for $209.99+ (available in two sizes).

    12. A "50-pint" Keystone dehumidifier to handle larger and more wide-open spaces (basements, attics, etc.) but this big guy still runs quiet, saves energy, and gives you a heads-up when to clean its filter.


    Size: 800 oz.

    Square Feet: 4,500

    Weight: 42 lbs.

    Warranty: 1 year

    Promising review: "Using this dehumidifier in our basement and the humidity level went from 89% to 55% in about 8 hours. The humidity level has maintained at 45% ever since. Great dehumidifier, runs quietly and does exactly like it should. Basement is dry and odor-free, no more musty smells. And no freezing the last two dehumidifiers.>" —Nee K.

    Get it from Amazon for $212.94.

    Always remember, it's not the heat, it's the humidity that'll get you...
