Dehumidifiers Features Comparison
It's important to buy a dehumidifier big enough for the size of the space you want to dry out. Discount dehumidifiers typically remove up to 50 pints of moisture from the air in a 24-hour period, which should be sufficient to dehumidify up to 1,000 square feet. A large bucket saves you from having to empty it several times a day, as does the ability to connect the dehumidifier to a hose for continuous drainage. Both our picks offer this option. Multiple fan settings let you turn down the fan to reduce noise when people are in the room. Automatic settings include a timer for programming how long you want the dehumidifier to run; an auto defrost function to clear off any frost that develops on the coils when the space is too chilly; a humidistat for setting the humidity level; and an auto shutoff function that turns off the dehumidifier when the bucket is full.
